Way back in 2005 my brother sent me an email. He had been watching the Eurovision Song Contest and…
Okay, wait–if you don’t know what the Eurovision Song Contest is it is an annual competition held between many of the countries in and around Europe, each country selects an artist and song to enter into the competition, those artists then perform those songs on live television, the songs are judged in a way similar to an Olympic event and an artist (and thus country) is chosen as “winner,” the most famous winner of the contest still being Abba who won for Sweden with “Waterloo” in 1974, but you’ve got to check out the future voice of White Lion, Mike Tramp, competing with his band Mabel in 1978:
None of the songs on the first album are as great as “In My Dreams” but songs like “Bless the Night” sure keep me entertained:
My favorite song on Non Stop Rock N’ Roll is “Still I’m Burning.” The song is the closest Wig Wam have come to replicating the atmospheric verse/bombastic chorus model established by “In My Dreams.” It’s definitely another sing along too loud in the car jam. I really love the “there ain’t no one there ain’t no one like you” part.
te? Let me know what you think.
