SHEEBA – IRELAND 1981

I read on another website that one of the three members of SHEEBA, who sang for Ireland at the 1981 Eurovision with HOROSCOPES has retired. She is Maxi (Irene McCoubrey). Here is the cover of another Sheeba single COMING TO YOU. Interesting is that this song was composed by Dutch composers Peter van Asten and Richard de Bois who write the 1984 Dutch entry IK HOU VAN JOU for Maribelle.

IRELAND 1981 – covered in Finnish

When ESCCovers as a website was established, the idea was two-fold

1 – giving coverage of the Eurovision song contest each year

2 – looking at Eurovision songs being covered – mainly by South African artists in Afrikaans but also by artists from other countries in other languages.

From now on, we will on a regular basis look at covers by other artists in other languages.

First up is the Irish 1981 entry, HOROSCOPES and it is in Finnish my ARMI who was actually a Miss Finland one year.
