Gili & Galit
|◄ "Ben Adam" (1988)|
|"Shara Barkhovot" (1990) ►|
The song deals with the singers' joy on traveling down "The King's Road" - a Biblical reference. They sing that this is the only road they will ever travel in their lives.
The song was performed second on the night (following Italy's Anna Oxa & Fausto Leali with Avrei voluto and preceding Ireland's Kiev Connolly & The Missing Passengers with The Real Me). At the close of voting, it had received 50 points, placing 12th in a field of 22.
The performance was marred by a slight lapse of Gili's memory as he finished singing the second verse. He recovered well, and performed the rest of the song flawlessly.
Gili & Galit recorded an English-language version of the song entitled Shine For Tomorrow.
