Israel - Ding Dong - Dana International

15 - 38 pts in semi 2
1998 Eurovision winning Diva Dana International (דנה אינטרנשיונל) is back on the Eurovision stage with the self penned song Ding Dong (דינג דונג). The song is in Hebrew with some parts in English.
You can listen to the original and new Eurovision version of Ding Dong at the Dana International ESC Youtube channel.
Two official remixes have been made by the Vooz Brothers. You can listen to both at Dana's YouTube channel or you can listen at Soundcloud.

A promo cds in a folder (pic above) has the Eurovision version and instrumental. (CDI DINGDONG D1 3181328)
A second promo (cd-r, only plays in PC) has the same tracks plus the video (pic right)

A white label DJ 12" inch has been made, but I have no clue about its autenthicity.
An early promo cdsingle offered with 1 track on various auction sites has the K'dam version and is, according to the record company, not an official release.
The planned cdsingle with remixes hasn't materialized.

You can listen to the songs from the Israel preselection (K'dam) here at Iba.

Diva 1998
Dana International won the 1998 Eurovision song contest in Birmingham with Diva. The much talked about singer scored a decent European hit with the song, especially considering that a Eurovision hit was a rarity in the pre-digital download 90's.
