Schlager Sunday – Dancing Lasha Tumbai

Let’s give it up for Verka Serduchka and her song Dancing Lasha Tumbai. For this complex song I actually posted the lyrics for you. I adore this performance and the Balkan beats convinced the rest of Europe as well. The ESC entry from Ukraine in 2007 finished runner-up.

Say what? This lady came second!

The song has been written by Verka hererself and includes words in English, German, Russian and Ukrainian. The title may mean something along ‘milkshake’, ‘Russia goodbye’ or maybe nothing at all. We will never know.

Not that the Grand Prix is a political show.

The performer faced huge criticism in her country leading up to the competition. With the Grand Prix going berserk with costumes, the question of drag queens is obsolete.

Not long until May. May the Eurovision spirit be with you!

More Eurovision Fun!

  1. Now that was lots of fun. Thanks 😊. I have to admit, I am not a Eurovision fan anymore. I used to like the old version when people had to sing in their native language but when it changed I lost interest. 🤗😊

    1. After they changed all the rules I missed a few years as well but magically found my way back. But it really doesn’t have much to do with the old version. A few years back Portugal won with a simple song & performance but mostly it’s a bit of a trash fest 🙂

      1. I shared it with my Discord group and nobody understood what I was excited about. That song really cheered me up.

      2. Oh, those music connoisseurs take themselves so serious sometimes. Maybe not all of them can see the genius 😉
