"Träume sind für alle da" ("Dreams are there for everyone") was the German entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1992, performed in German by Wind. This was Wind's third Eurovision entry, they had previously represented Germany at the 1985 and 1987 contests with "Für alle" and "Lass die Sonne in dein Herz", both times finishing in 2nd position.

It was succeeded as German representative at the 1993 contest by Münchener Freiheit with "Viel zu weit".

Voting[edit]

The song was performed twenty-second on the night, following Norway's Merethe Trøan with "Visjoner" and preceding the Netherlands' Humphrey Campbell with "Wijs me de weg". At the close of voting, it had received 27 points, placing 16th in a field of 23. It was fancied by the bookmakers to win the contest alongside the United Kingdom, Sweden, Ireland, Malta and Austria.

Background[edit]

The song is in the schlager style made famous by composer-lyricist team Ralph Siegel and Bernd Meinunger and consists of a series of sketches of characters who are dreaming of a change in their lives. The first of these, for example, is a young girl waiting on a platform for a train which she believes will take her to success. Wind also recorded an English version of the song, entitled "Dreams are Made for Everyone".
