Katja Ebstein’s „Wonders“: Semi-funky (in a German way)

with one comment

By accident, I just ran across Katja Ebstein’s performance at 1970’s Grand Prix Eurovision de la Chanson. At least the keyboard part during the verse always struck me as semi-funky (in a German kind of way). But what I really love about this particular video is the reporter’s fashion review:

And this, for my money, is one of the most striking outfits so far: Kingfisher blue, velvet maxi, over a pale-blue mini-dress. (…) And she is wearing silver boots. And the guys in the back: one in gold, two in pink lurex.

My favorite (part-time semi-)German language artist of the time was/is France Gall, though. I paid tribute to her in this blog post: „Isch liebö Frons Gall …“ (in German).

  1. Not sure what this means. That the GP (later ESC) has always been a fashion rather than a musical event? Well, probably – and legitimately. ‚Wunder …‘ isn’t such a bad song, but it’s way too slow here.
    There were exceptions, though. The highlight of the sixties was Petula Clark’s ‚Downtown‘, a real musical gem.
