Atlantis 2000

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Atlantis 2000 was the name of a music project by the German producer Alfons Weindorf and the musician and lyricist Helmut Frey . It was formed in Munich at the end of 1990 for participation in Ein Lied für Rom , the German qualification for the Eurovision Song Contest 1991 in the following year. Other members of the group were Frey and Weindorf Jutta Niedhardt, Klaus Pröpper, Clemens Weindorf and Eberhard Wilhelm.

The song This dream must never die , composed by Weindorf and texted by Frey , prevailed on March 21, 1991 in the first all-German preliminary decision in the Berlin Friedrichstadtpalast with 18.5 percent of the jury votes against nine other titles. The surprising election of the 1,000 television viewers, who were selected to be representative, met with the displeasure of the audience during the event, who acknowledged the result with boos. Weindorf performed as a conductor at the 36th Eurovision Song Contest in Rome . Atlantis 2000 received points from only three countries and came in 18th out of 22 participants. After the Grand Prix, the group broke up.

Another title from Atlantis 2000 is "One Day". The song was released on their single.
