Germany 2013 - LaBrassBanda - Nackert

The German final looks like becoming a Valentine's day bloodbath, as every new song that emerges from the list looks like being a cracker. Any one you talk to is picking a different top three, with Cascada, The Priests and Söhne Mannheims cropping up on most people's lists at least in part.

But there's one little tune that you really shouldn't rule out. LaBrassBanda have quietly become massive festival faves around the continent, with their big horns, German melodies and Ozomatli-style infectious enthusiasm, and are surely the outsider to watch.

Heck, the song's even got a dance routine - albeit more of a wavy bounceabout thingy - and all of them go barefoot on stage… and we know where that can get you in this competition, boys and girls, don't we now.

  1. Ah...great band, seen them a couple of years back.

    Fingers crossed for 'em.

  2. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, Unknown, but they got narrowly beaten by Cascada in last Thursday's German final - in what looked like an uncharacteristically dubious spot of match fixing by the Germans!

    Mind you, Cascada's song is in the plagiarism dock as we speak, so there may be hope for the boys yet!
