"Weil's dr guat got" (Because you feel good) was the Austrian representative at the Eurovision Song Contest 1996, performed in Vorarlbergish (a dialect of Austrian German) by George Nussbaumer, who lost his eyesight before the age of 1.
The song was performed eighth on the night, following Croatia's Maja Blagdan with "Sveta ljubav" and preceding Switzerland's Kathy Leander with "Mon coeur l'aime". At the close of voting, it had received 68 points, placing 10th in a field of 23.
The song itself is about the enjoyment to be had in the world when everything is going well. Unusually, it is performed in an up-tempo gospel-influenced style. Nussbaumer leads the song on a piano, with a series of backing singers providing appropriate responses.
