Conchita Wurst & Ina Regen – Heast As Net [VIDEO]


ESC Today reports:

Eurovision 2014 winner Conchita and dialect artist Ina Regen have interpreted Heast As Net (Don’t You Hear It), a song in Austrian dialect originally sung by popular folk musician Hubert von Goisern and his band Die Alpinkatzen.

Heast As Net is a bittersweet song, about time that passes by, leaving only memories. Transitoriness and the flow of life. Yet it also celebrates the beauty and diversity of life. Conchita and Ina both grew up in rural areas, in dialect-speaking families, and were happy to contribute to the tradition of folk music, including yodeling.

Below is the 1992 original as well as Conchita’s winning Eurovision song, which went on to top the charts across Europe, much to the furor of anti-gay haters, particularly in Russia.
