"Shara Barkhovot" (Hebrew script: שרה ברחובות, English translation: "Singing In The Streets") is a song recorded by Rita, composed by her then-husband Rami Kleinstein, and written in Hebrew by Tzruya Lahav. The song represented Israel in the Eurovision Song Contest 1990.
The song is a ballad, with Rita describing her ambiguous feelings about a relationship. She sings of her lover that "you, who are all my life/Will remain a salt inscription on my hands" and remarks that "the great waters/Have gone far away and don't come to me anymore". As a result of this, she sings that she has left her lover and is now singing in the streets to avoid confronting her feelings on the matter.
Eurovision Song Contest
The song was performed tenth on the night (following Norway's Ketil Stokkan with "Brandenburger Tor" and preceding Denmark's Lonnie Devantier with "Hallo Hallo"). At the close of voting, it had received 16 points, placing 18th in a field of 22.
