Bana bana - Pan

The Turkish entry for the Eurovision Song Contest in 1989 was legendary. The group Pan sang 'Bana Bana', a traditionally arranged popsong. The conductor directed the orchestra with acrobatic gestures, while the group sang a very excited chorus that was unintelligible for those not speaking the Turkish language.

Unfortunately, the song was not available on single. For a long time I thought I wasn't ever released on vinyl. There was a compilation cd of that year's contestants, and it contained a recording of the song. I was satisfied with that. And then the unthinkable happened: more than a decade later, I suddenly found this single. It contains two remixes of the song. It was a real find. I took the tattered sleeve for granted.

My collection: 7" single no. 3151
Found: Record fair, Amsterdam, September 19, 1999
Cost: 10 guilders
