9 ½ minut (1988)

When I posted Danish masterpieces yesterday, how could I forget this one? This is like a tiny piece of art, like an installation of what the 80's were like at their best.

Anne Marie Busk "9 ½ minut" (Danish final 1988)

I mean, what is there not to love? A Danish Kylie in a pop mood, accompanied by two male backing singers in trenchcoats. Yes, trenchcoats. One of them is sporting a moustache, the other one seems to be Riki Sorsa's long lost Danish twin.

Also, it is rich in detail. The dress! The acting (is it a train behind us?)! The laser beams! The hat!

Of course it didn't reach the super final, but it is a fine effort. And time has been pretty kind to it, as well. Compared to some of the very dated stuff that defeated it back in 1988.
