For the entire month of February, ESC Covers will take every day a South African artist/group/duo on a virtual tour to Europe. We will visit 28 countries.
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 six song is LIEF VIR ALLES HIER by ANDRE SCHWARTZ plus the original song FUR ALLE by WIND.
This is a Eurovision entry. WIND represented GERMANY in 1985 at the Eurovision song contest. Andre covered it in Afrikaans and is regarded by many Euro fans as a classic.
It seems every Eurovision country will get a chance for its best top 10 – second up is GERMANY
Veepee Lehto covered the 1985 Eurovision entry from Germany FUR ALLE in Finnish as KAIKILLE.
The 44th song in our Ralph Siegel series is TRAUME SIND FUR ALLE DA by WIND – it was the third time they appeared in Eurovision after Fur alle and Lass die sonne but where the first 2 both came second, this one did not do well at all. Maybe the Euro fans got tired of seeing them so often?
Stefan Borsch covered the 1985 Eurovision entry from Germany FUR ALLE in Swedish as SA MANG MANNISKOR.
Christo & Cobus Snyman covered the 1985 Eurovision entry FUR ALLE from Germany in Afrikaans as LIEF VIR ALLES HIER.
Birthe Kjaer covered the 1985 Eurovision entry from Germany FUR ALLE in Danish as TIL ALLE JER.
Frans Bauer covered the 1985 Eurovision entry from Germany, FUR ALLE by Wind in Dutch as IK HEB VANNACHT IN MIJN DROMEN EEN ENGEL GEZEIN.
