Song Of The Day: Turkey 1981

Many people have, through the years, sung songs about life and love being much like a merry-go-round. In that sense, this song is nothing unusual.

During the late 70's and early 80's, many countries contributed disco songs with disco strings for Eurovision. Nothing unusal there either.

The disco songs were often performed by a goodlooking woman, which is also the case here.

What makes this one stand out is that pretty Aysegül have been paired up with three men that don't stike me as typical disco regulars in any way. (Not that they can't handle the choreography. Looks can decieve.)

Also, most disco hits were depending heavily on some kind of hook or catchy chorus. This song has nothing of the kind. It is pleasant and trots along, but it is not the kind of merry-go-round that will leave you breathless and exhausted.

So the juries went for a much more energetic ride called Bucks Fizz and left the disco Turks in second last place with only nine points.
