In popular culture

  • Finnish Big Brother contestant Tero Savikuja mentioned "L'amour toujours" as his favorite song when he attended the TV show, and it was played several times in the Big Brother house during that season. There's also a locally popular Finnish version of the song on YouTube called "Seppo on bi", which translates as "Seppo is a bisexual". The name probably derives from its rhythmical uniformity with the song's distinctive synthesizer riff.
