Gary Lux Kinder Dieser Welt
"Kinder dieser Welt" (English translation: "Children Of This World") was the Austrian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1985, performed in German by Gary Lux. The song was written by Englishman Mick Jackson, better known for penning the disco hit "Blame It on the Boogie" in 1978. Lyricist Michael Kunze had previously co-written Silver Convention's 1977 entry for Germany, "Telegram", and in the late 70s both Kunze and co-writer Geoff Bastow had also worked as session musicians and composers for other successful Germany-based disco acts like Boney M. and Amanda Lear.
The song is a ballad about the innocence and power of children.
