Notes

This was music specially commissioned for Eurovision 1981.

According to Christy Moore, "…performing in the Eurovision. It was a truly memorable experience as Planxty played 'Timedance' for The Irish Ballet Company and 600 million Europeans went into the kitchen to make cocoa. The seed for Riverdance was sown and I got to bang my Bowrawn for Ballerinas."
