Schlager singer Margot Eskens was born on August 12, 1939, in Düren, Germany. Her career began in 1954 when she was working as a dental assistant. She entered and won a Polydor Records talent competition thanks to her rendition of “Moulin Rouge.” Signing to Polydor in 1955, she scored her first hit with "Ich möchte heut ausgehn." Margot Eskens achieved two Number One hits with “Tiritomba” (1956) and “Cindy, oh Cindy” (1957), which spent 25 weeks in the German Top 10. In the late 1950s, she recorded a series of duets with Silvio Francesco (brother of Caterina Valente) including “Wenn du wiederkommst” (1958), and “Mondschein-Partie” (1959). She achieved several more solo hits in the 1960s – “Wenn du heimkommst” (1961), “Ein Herz, das kann man nicht kaufen” (1962), and “Mama” (1964) – but the hits began to dry up by the middle of the decade. In 1966, Margot Eskens represented Germany in the Eurovision Song Contest with “Die Zeiger der Uhr,” but only came in 10th place. Although she disappeared from the upper regions of the charts, she continued to perform and returned to recording in the late 1980s, releasing albums such as Dieses Gefühl (1987) and Such’ Mit Mir Die Zärtlichkeit (1990). Margo Eskens died on July 29, 2022. With a catalog that has sold over 40 million records, Margot Eskens has become a beloved German schlager icon over the years. Her music has been reissued many times on compilations such as Ihre Großen Erfolge (2014).
