dbo:abstract
  • "Im Wartesaal zum großen Glück" (English translation: "In The Waiting Room For Great Happiness") was the first German entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1956 (the rules at this Contest allowing two songs per country for the only time in history), performed in German by Walter Andreas Schwarz.The song was performed fourth on the night (following Belgium's Fud Leclerc with "Messieurs les noyés de la Seine" and preceding France's Mathé Altéry with "Le temps perdu"). The scoreboard of the 1956 Contest has never been made public, making any statements about placing and points impossible. However, there is considerable speculation that the song placed second.The song is a ballad, with Schwarz singing about the tragedy of people being lost in the past and waiting for happiness which has already passed them by.The song was accompanied at the 1956 contest by Freddy Quinn with "So geht das jede Nacht" and was succeeded as German representative at the 1957 contest by Margot Hielscher with "Telefon, Telefon".
