Ten Eurovision covers from the early years

9. Marju Kuut & Aleksandar Rjabov – Tantsulaul

Behind the Iron Curtain, Eurovision was seen as a Western thingy, nothing they wanted to be part of. Except for Yugoslavia, yes. But sometimes, songs managed to get their way across the borders… This is one of them: Estonia, back then part of the Soviet Union, got a little piece of the brilliance the Ingmann couple brought to the 1963 Eurovision Song Contest. Their own Marju Kuut, together with Aleksandar Rjabov, turnedย Dansevise intoย Tantsulaul. The song keeps all of its charm and class, no matter the language, but Marju’s voice suits the song very well.
