Nur noch Gefühl - Gary Lux

Collecting Eurovision Song Contest singles has become a little easier since buying online and worldwide has become more popular. Sites like Ebay and Discogs provide easy access to many singles that one would deem lost forever. But at the same time, some of those singles can become exceedingly expensive. Gary Lux's 'Nur noch Gefühl', for instance, commands a price of at least 20 euros.Which is why I was glad to find the Austrian version of Ebay in the shape of Willhaben. This is where I found this copy of the single for a fraction of the price.

'Nur noch Gefühl' was Austria's entry for the Contest in 1987. It wasn't a very successful entry: at the close of voting, it had received 8 points, placing twentieth in a field of 22 competitors. It must have been a disappointment: two years earlier, Gary's song 'Kinder dieser Welt' reached a respectable eighth place.

My collection: 7" single no. 6123
Found:, received June 20, 2019
Cost: 4 euro
Tracks: 'Nur noch Gefühl' / 'Don't turn around'

Kinder dieser Welt - Gary Lux

Gary Lux was born in Ontario, Canada, but returned to live in Austria with his parents during his childhood. He represented Austria during the Eurovision Song Contest on six occasions, first as a member of the group Westend in 1983 and as a backing singer in 1984, 1993 and 1995. Only in 1985 and 1987 he was the starring performer.

His 1985 entry was 'Kinder dieser Welt' ('Children of the world'). The song finished eighth in a field of 19 competitors.
