19/997 Bob Martin: Wohin kleines Pony (Austria 1957)

Back to random choises. draw the number 19, so we go way back to the first years of Eurovision. Austria took part first time in the Eurovision Song Contest in its second year 1957 with a less memorable song.

I have very little to say about the song Wohin kleines Pony. The first Austrian entry was a jolly song about a pony and its rider who asks his steed where it wants to run today. Nothing more.

Not the worst song in Eurovision but it certainly does not belong to the most memorable ones, not even among the 1950's entries. Bob Martin did his job as he is supposed to, but that didn't convince the juries even then, with three points this song came last among ten participating countries. No studio recording of this song was ever made.

My points 2/5.
