Miriam-Christine-In-a-Womans-Heart-Pride Remix 2019

Back in 1996, Miriam Christine was the 17 year old girl who bagged a Top 10 finish for Malta at the Eurovision Song Contest. Three albums later, after several participations in music competitions and a touring career in music, she’s remixed her signature song “In a Woman’s Heart” as she prepares to release her fourth LP later this year.

“In a Woman’s Heart” (Pride Remix) — Miriam Christine

Malta Pride 2019 was the impetus behind this re-release. As Miriam explains in a statement obtained from her management, she was inspired to re-release this song in support of her LGBT fans.

“It’s unbelievable! The response has been so much more than I expected and I couldn’t do it without my fans. The LGBT+ have been incredibly special to me along the years, and they have continued to stand by me! Even though it’s been 23 years, this song still has a great vibe and I hope that all of you enjoy listening to it, as much as I do performing it,” said Miriam Christine, just off the stage at the Malta Pride 2019 Concert.

“In a Woman’s Heart” (Pride Remix) was remixed by Sean Vella of Philip Vella Studios.  The lyric video is produced by Duane & Angie Laus. It is also available to download and stream through all major digital music platforms courtesy of CAP-Sounds who work closely with Ironic PR & Artist Management.

Oh my GOD!!! That brings me back so many ages ago… Funnily enough I think this version is much better and makes much more sense with this melody and her voice than the original version. (Not that I like it, though…). Like that it would have been a strong contender for Gina G’s popularity.

What an awful remix. I like the original. It reminds me of Madonna’s Keep it Together in de Blond Ambition World Tour.

The original is fine and contemporary enough. How it got top ten in such a strong year, I don’t know, but it’s pretty good. The song they tied with from Austria is much better.

Malta was my winner in 1996, their best entry that decade and rare occasion when they deserved their Top 10. Back then it was among pre-contest favorites and placed fifth in the preselection round.

Remix is ok but it is great that the song is remembered.

Were the pre-selection results ever officially revealed?

Yep! You can see them on Wikipedia. Ireland came second to Sweden. After that, there was the UK in third, Malta in fourth, and Estonia fifth. There were a few big leaps up by the time of the contest (Croatia and Portugal went from narrowly qualifying to getting their best finishes yet) and downward (France and Switzerland’s scores went, undeservedly, way farther down by contest time). Some of the differences between the voting in the preselection and in the final is crazy, too. Iceland and the UK went from giving Ireland 12 to giving them nothing at the actual contest.

Thanks. I guess we can trust those Wikipedia results? They don’t seem to appear on the official Eurovision site. I wonder where they came from.

An English language advantage? The 1990s were really probably Malta’s best chance for a victory.

True, that was their best chance and 2002 as well. Yes, Malta was fourth and not fifth as I wrote before. The difference about the votes is simple – there was only one person voting on behalf of the entire country during the preselection and I wouldn’t be surprised to learn that they were not jury members in the official contest.
