UITKLOPHOU – KARLIEN VAN JAARSVELD & EDEN

On Saturday 25 July 2020 ESC COVERS will launch the COVER2COVER competition. In category one are 14 songs by South African artists that are covers of EUROVISION songs (actual entries or selection songs or Eurovision related because of the original artist who was an entry at Eurovision or by the composers who had written a Eurovision entry). We will list all 14 in the next days, the Afrikaans cover plus the original song.

The thirteenth  song  is UITKLOPHOU by KARLIEN VAN JAARSVELD & EDEN plus the original song WATERFALL by NODI TATISHVILI & SOPHIE GELOVANI.

This is a Eurovision entry. Thomas Gson, who had composed several Eurovision entries, including one winner Euphoria for Sweden in 2012, returned in 2013 with this song for GEORGIA.

COMPILATION CDs for VIENNA – part 1

Besides the 6 compilation CDs to celebrate the fact that Eurovision is 60 years old (the covers of these 6 will be posted soon — Gerry is still finishing his designs), we have a few copies left of the compilation CDs we had in 2014 in Copenhagen. These will be made available in Vienna. The first up is the compilation – EUROVISION WE SING YOUR SONGS VOL 9 – this CD contains Euro covers of 2013 songs and just 2 copies are still available. Here is the index:

EUROVISION 60th CELEBRATION – SONG 14 of 60

Next up is a real South African classic with around 15 people having covered it. It is the 1984 song IK HOU VAN JOU of Netherlands, originally sung by Maribelle. The song was introduced to South Africa 10 years after its Eurovision duet when Dana Winner covered it. We have picked the first Afrikaans cover done by boy band EDEN in 2001.
