Iceland: Eurovision 1997 icon Paul Oscar finds love on “Einn dans”

3

He’s the man whose epic “Minn hinsti dans” performance changed the face of Eurovision in 1997, paving the way for future winners like Dana International and Conchita Wurst. And with his latest EP, Paul Oscar continues to prove why he is Iceland’s ultimate disco king.

“Einn Dans” — the record’s title track — introduces us to a more optimistic Páll Óskar. Instead of dancing his very last dance, he is dancing his way to love.

We’re told the story of a man who finds the one and only as a result of one dance.

It’s more of Paul’s signature sound, but hey, if it ain’t broken, why fix it? “Einn Dans” will have Icelanders dancing on tables, and that’s exactly what he came for.

StopWaitGo — the brains behind María Ólafs’s “Unbroken” — join Paul on the writing credits, as he takes them back to their techno/house infused roots.

Paul Oscar Einn Dans English Lyrics

I was always open to the fact
that life could be good again
It didn’t take much
It didn’t take much

Just one dance
one dance into the night
that gave me hope again
and I was hoping
that I would get to
live my dreams again

Just one dance
one dance into the night
that awoke the love within

Now I only have to
love you for the rest of my life

Just one dance

Its amazing how one brief moment
can changes life
and turns it around

In my case, it didn’t take much
Just one dance
one dance into the night
that gave me hope again
and I was hoping
I would get to
live my dreams again

Just one dance

If you are openminded
I can promise you
that happiness will
find its way to you
Just one dance….
