ANOTHER SPECIAL COMPILATION FOR VIENNA

Yes, we are really into the groove of showcasing just how many songs have been covered in South Africa and this compilation has been done on the request of some SWEDISH composers – this is to once again remind Eurovision fans that it is a SONG CONTEST and a good song can be sung by any artist in any language. This compilation also highlight just how success Swedish composers are as it feature Eurovision songs they have written for countries other than Sweden. Gerry from the USA once again created a special cover design.

KATRINA AND THE WAVES IN SOUTH AFRICA

Often an artist from Eurovision visits South Africa but the media hardly give attention to it. The latest is KATRINA AND THE WAVES who are in South Africa and I did not even know it until yesterday. They are part of a show called BACK TO THE 80’s and it is on at several of the casino’s around South Africa. Cole van Dais was one of the backing singers at the show on 31 January at Carnival City and she informed me that Katrina and the waves were part of the show. Other people who are here are the likes of Billy Ocean, Hazel Dean, Nick Kershaw and M People.

KURT DARREN IN PERTH, AUSTRALIA

From our member KOHAN IKIN

I made it to the Kurt Darren concert!  Only 5 minutes before it started,
but it was lucky I was late, because I helped 4 gorgeous South African
women on my bus find their way to the theater. (It’s really hard to
find, but I know my way around because it’s my old University).

I took some photos on the night:

http://1drv.ms/1tbmS17

It was *lots* of fun!  I’m really glad I went, I wasn’t sure if I’d like
it but I had a great time.  Cowboys En Crooks was easily my favorite
song, but I’m still waking up in the morning with Meisie Meisie stuck in
my head too.  He also sang Kaptein, Lekker Lekker, Voorwarts Mars, Dans
Op Die Tafels, Staan Op! and Dans In Afrikaans… and that’s just the
songs I still remember from the night.  (I definitely see the similarity
with German Schlager now!)

You’ll see from the photos that everyone was dancing on the stage with
him & he took photos with the audience while he was singing.  Everyone
had a really good time.  I see he has his music on Rdio too, so I’ve
been listening to some of his songs there too.

Thanks for the recommendation, Roy!  Excellent night, if he comes back
to Perth I’ll be sure to bring some friends along next time!
