Vicky Leandros : Don't break my heart

by Richard West-Soley 234 views

Vicky Leandros has been working hard in the studio during the past few weeks, fine-tuning the arrangement of her song Don't break my heart ready for the German national selection on 9th March. Now, visitors to Vicky's official website can finally listen to a 30-second clip of the song.

The music for Don't break my heart was written by Vicky herself, with lyrics by Alex Geringas.

Vicky explains: “We have been working very hard, trying to create the right strong pop-ballad for this occasion, and we think that we have succeeded with Don't break my heart. I hope and trust the audience, the tv-viewers and my fans will all approve of our hard efforts”.

After her fourth place with L'amour est bleu (1967) and her victory with Après toi for Luxembourg in 1972, Vicky has chosen to present her contribution for the 2006 German national final on 9th March in English.

The Greek-born singer has already enjoyed a great deal of success in the German Schlager industry, singing a mixture of pop songs and ballads in the German language. Should she win the final on 9th March, she would return to the country of her birth to represent the country that has adopted her as its own Schlager superstar.

Vicky Leandros (Don't break my heart), former Modern-Talking star Thomas Anders (Songs that are forever) and the group Texas Lightning (No, no never) will all take part in the German selection for the Eurovision Song Contest 2006 in Athens. During the gala-show Der deutsche Vorentscheid 2006 – 50 Jahre Grand Prix, from the Schauspielhaus in Hamburg, they will present their contributions as well as perform a cover-version of a well-known Eurovision Song Contest song.
