Let it swing - Bobbysocks

Norway won the Eurovision Song Contest for the very first time in 1985 with a very tired old song, 'La det swinge' was performed by the Bobbysocks. This duo, consisting of Hanne Krogh and Elisabeth Andreasson, sang a tribute to dancing to old rock 'n' roll heard on the radio. The melody arrangement is in retro style, containing elements of contemporary Eighties music and throwbacks to the Fifties.

The single reached number 1 in Norway and Belgium and peaked at number 13 in the Dutch Top 40. I have always disliked this song for its repetitiveness and its unimaginative lyrics. Still, it's a Eurovision winner and since I have almost all of them, I had to have this one as well.

Found: La La Land, Den Haag, January 31, 2009
