Germany 2013 - Betty Dittrich - LaLaLa

Well it would appear that Germany has provided us with our first bona fide pop gem of the season. Who'd have thought it?

A cracking 60s Europop pastiche, it's fantastically well-observed video starts with a cheery, Bridget Bardot flavoured jangle, before the hep cat dance routine kicks in, all drenched in glorious glockenspiel juice.

If I've got one criticism is that it goes on for about a minute-and-a-half too long, riffing as it does on the same theme, but if she gives it the same treatment live as she does on the video, we may well be seeing a bit more of this perky young lass.
