Eurovision #4: The Netherlands


In honor of Marcia's Dutch heritage, next up is this year's entry from the Netherlands. It appears they went old-school, and I'm not just talking about the singer. The organ is a nice local touch.

I can't tell exactly what they're singing, but the title is Ik ben verliefd, which translates to "I'm in love", and everybody seems happy about it.

The Netherlands has a long history with the Eurovision contest. They were one of the original countries to participate in 1956, and have won it 4 times, although the last winner was in 1975, with Teach-In singing "Ding-A-Dong". Really.
