    In the aftermath of ESC I was going through some old Eurovision Songs and found myself fall in love again with Mor ve Ötesi's Deli.

    Re: What song are you OBSESSED with at the moment?!

    The ESC keeps getting surprises for me.
    A few days ago a story blew me away. ESC 1984: The glamoures performance of Germany's Mary Roos.
    34 years later, it turns out that it wasn't glamoures at all.
    In a television show a few days ago, the now 69 year old Mary Roos is confronted with a video of her former performance.
    Then it breaks out of her: "That was a catastrophic appearance".
    It turns out that she has never watched her performance and sees it for the first time in 34 years, because it's connected to a very personal private tragedy.
    Shortly before the performance, she receives a phone call from a woman who tells her she is her husband's girlfriend, that she is pregnant and now wants to see money,
    otherwise she goes to the press and ruins her career (remember it was 1984)
    It turns out that it is the truth and Mary Roos has been cheated by her husband who accompanied her that ESC evening. But now she has to go on the ESC stage and recite a song with the following lyrics:

    Now we've said goodbye, I'm feeling so much better
    Tryin 'not to cry, I'll make it on my own
    I know it will not be easy but I've got faith in me
    I'll make it through

    I'll walk tall, I'll walk tall
    I can make it alone, when I fall, I'll stand tall
    My pride is out of my eyes, white tears run down my face
    I'll walk through the night, I'm right

    If you change your mind, you know, it just might happen
    I'll be long since gone, 'cause waiting's not my style
    If, by chance, we do meet you and your lips try to kiss
    I'll be strong enough to tell it like it is

    I'll walk tall, I'll walk tall
    I can make it alone, when I fall, I'll stand tall
    My pride is out of my eyes, white tears run down my face
    I'll walk through the night, I'm right

    The truth can sometimes taste so bitter
    While I laugh inside, I'm hurting still
    It's me picking up the pieces
    I know that I can win, and when I want

    I'll walk tall, I'll walk tall
    I can make it alone, when I fall, I'll stand tall
    My pride is out of my eyes, white tears run down my face
    I'll walk through the night, I'm right



    The literal translation of the German lyrics are even more painful than the English version.
    Mary Roos said in the TV show, that during the whole performance she only thought she wished the three minutes were over right now and she could leave.
    I guess, the longest 3 minutes of her life.


    Without knowing the backstory, Rea Garvey has created an amazing version of her song that expresses
    exactly the rage Mary Roos felt during her performance at the time and she wished to express back than.
    Rea Garvey was a little shaken before his performance as he heared the story behind the song only seconds before.
    With the version of Rea Garvey, I am now obsessed with. You may have to be patient because of the commercial before the song.

    Yes, read the story a couple of days ago as well. What a tragic story that is. And her song somewhat fits tragically also. It seemed that after all these years it brought her still to tears.

    Life imitates art.

    Lyrics that only had the purpose to transport a message of women empowerment became suddenly real and bitter for her.
    Every aspect about her that day seems to shift in light of that story.
    For instance as a German tv reporter interviews her only seconds before her performance (I don't think somewhat like that would be possible today) and asks her how she's feeling and she answers " The Austrians have this wonderful song "Simply Leaving" in the contest. I wish I could do that right now."
    Back than everybody thought she was joking, but she was deadly serious.
