Eurovision Memories-Brainstorm

The Eurovision Song Contest 2000 was held in Stockholm and was won by the Danish entry.  But it was the Latvian rock band “Brainstorm” with their entry “My Star” which won over the hearts and voting patters of the european public. Latvia, in their first ever eurovision accumulated an impressive 136 ppoints and finished in inpressive third place. I love this song because I feel it is quite original and there was nothing else like it that year.

Brainstorm are a very popular group in their native Latvia and were formed twenty years ago in 1989.  According to Wikipedia: The title of the band was taken from what one old foreign lady said about their music, who characterized it as a “brainstorm”.
