>Friday Jukebox Goes Danish (part 2)

>It’s Media Day here at this corner of the internet and the Jukebox is honouring/roasting Danish Eurovision entries from the 1980s and 1990s. On with the show!

1990: Lonnie Devantier may look and move like Denmark’s answer to Tina Turner, but I don’t think Tina will be covering Hallo, Hallo at any time in the near future.

1992: Alt det som ingen ser may sound like a classic German oompah-pah-pah band drinking song as sung by demure schoolteacher and a hair rock singer, but if you read the lyrics it’s really about justifying one night stands. Damn catchy without a doubt.

1997: Denmark sends a rapper with a song about harassing the phone operator. Danish is oddly suited for orchestral rap.

1999: The song takes a second place to the interesting body language between sex-on-legs Michael, his confidence and slightly nervous Trine. I reckon it’s better in Danish, myself.

We won’t mention 2000…hehehehe.

Bonus: As much as I like Denmark, I have to say that Wogan really nailed the annoying presenters in 2001.

Then again, my personal taste was for the slick and cool Swedish presentation of the year before.
