#BIRTHDAY: Timna Brauer from Austria is 62 today

These days, our favourite TV show is fairly free and easy with language. If a country isn’t using its own language, then English is the favourite but not the only choice. Some songs even contain a plethora of tongues to appeal to a wider audience.

Back in 1986, our friends in Austria entered a song that had been written in English. Of course, they had to translate it into German for the big night. It was performed by today’s birthday girl תמנע בראואר‎/Timna Brauer. Now, how would a translated song perform in those stricter days? Well, Timna’s performance was a little unorthodox. It meant that points were hard to come by from the juries who must have liked something a little ‘safer’. But she did get a ‘6’ from Finland.
