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 seventh song  is JULIA by MANIE JACKSON plus the original song KOMM MIT MIR NACH VENEDIG by G G ANDERSON.

This is not an actual Eurovision entry but G G ANDERSON took part in 1988 in the German Eurovision selection with Hattest du heut’zeit fur mich.


IRELAND 1979 – covered in Finnish

The 1979 entry of Ireland, HAPPY MAN by Cathal Dunne was covered in Finnish by Kari Tapio. I have this cover this 1981 or so. Interesting is that I have never heard the original. I got the Kari’s cover purely because I like his singing since he covered various songs of my most loved German schlager male singer, G G ANDERSON.
