Spinning 45 Ballerina
(or the Hungarian suicide song).
supposedly this song is Hungary's equivalent to the Sorrows of Young Werther, blamed for numerous suicides. Billi's version is censured and poses no treat to you're mental health. Diamanda Galaz also does this song, and she has (of course) taken the time to do a more accurate translation of the lyrics. I don't always get her work, though she seems to take it very seriously, (probably I'm just not skilled enough at music to appreciate it). (btw: the pictures in this video are horrid... but oh... what a song.)
