Marianne Mendt Musik
8.0/10 rating 1 vote

Draw Position 1, Final Position 16, Points (Final) 66

"Musik" (English translation: "Music") was the Austrian entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 1971, performed in Viennese (a dialect of German spoken in Vienna) by Marianne Mendt.

At the close of voting, it had received 66 points, placing it 16th in a field of 18.

The song is about the ubiquity of music, although as Mendt sings, "it is often sold as something else". Orchestration-wise, the lyrics "feel the beat" referred to the birds flying over the lake and "feel the drum" referred to the plane flying overhead.
