Part 13 of our EU Grand Tour brings us to Hungary, land of spas and goulash. Also the home of Zsa Zsa Gabor, Ferenc Puskas, Franz Lizst, Laszlo Biro and these formidable performers.
I went to Hungary once. I liked it very much and I would like to go again. I realise that reads like something a primary school child would produce if asked to write about their holidays, but the creative juices aren't really flowing at the moment. Maybe I need a couple of shots of palinka to stir them up.
"Fekete Beat" - Sarolta Zalatnay
"Részeg Hajnalok" - Bergendy
"Vetettem Violat" - Marta Sebestyen
"Sunhanni" - Kampec Dolores
"Tiz Ev Az Uton" - Kati Kovacs & Locomotiv GT
You may notice a common theme to the videos. It would appear that in 1976 some bright spark decided to ship a job lot of pop stars down to Lake Balaton and shoot all that year's promo videos in one go to save money.
The lake works nicely as the backdrop for some wholesome fun while Beata Karda is smiling sweetly, but it all becomes slightly seedy when Hairy Gyorgy turns up. And you have to feel sorry for Corvina who get fobbed off with a pedalo. Presumably the budget had nearly run out by then.
