Jørgen and Grethe Ingemann's 'Dansevise'. Maybe the only time a Jazzy tune has won the Eurovision. This was too difficult to figure out, so this time I have kept it nice and short.



    I think you should see the original as well just for the sake of it. Featuring a lovely Gibson ES-175 arch top guitar.

    If anyone would like to know what the song is about, then here is a (quite poor) translation as taken from the internet:

    https://lyricstranslate.com/en/danse...ce-ballad.html

    Dance Ballad

    A ray of sunshine in a puddle
    A little kiss on the cheek from a wind
    And the rush, humming
    That life's beginning
    It's a web in your mind

    A whistle of silver from a treetop
    A faint sound of a cat grabbing
    A ripple in the stream
    A whisper in the hedge
    That says, that it isn't night anymore

    The meadow is wet with dew
    Lady Dawn goes to bed
    Day gets up playfully
    And crossing the bridge of the sun

    And the two of us?
    What about the two of us?
    Yes, what about the two of us, you and me?
    I'm dancing and dancing and stopping
    And sensing only you
    Why ever did you run away?

    Come back, come back
    Come back, you my beloved friend
    Come back, come back
    Wherever you wish, are we dancing to

    Come, let us dance
    Everything can happen
    Come, let us dance
    Let us dance, let us laugh
    Lovely tune Mads, just about to check out your version....but if I may don my pedant’s hat for a second, I don’t think that is an ES 175. The 175 came with the sharp, Florentine cutaway. That has the curved, Venetian cutaway. I think it might be a Gibson Byrdland, which came with both types of cutaway

    Right, that’s it folks. Season 361 is now officially over. Put your pens away, tidy your desks and hand in your exam papers. I will see you all later after playtime (that’s recess I think to some of you) to give feedback.....hopefully before the week is out.

    Sorry I couldn't make it - I had such high hopes too, but sick dogs have been coming up to me with worried looks on their faces, that's how sick I've been. Have nonetheless high hopes for Mad mep1's Season. There's probably one or two songs about dying out there.

    Sorry folks, this isn’t THE wrap, but in case anyone was wondering, I should have it done before the weeks out. TTFN,
