2B – Or Certainly Not 2B

Further to our brief look at Lise Darly’s, Tout de moi, we pointed out that this Portuguese horror scored 30 more points, yet, thankfully, still failed to qualify. How this even got to Eurovision amazes me. It sounds as if …

Kom… I Nearly Did!

Anna Bergendahl didn’t do it, so this is what I considered to be the next best thing. That strong uplifting hook with four confident smiling girls would have gone much further in the competition than Bergendahl stood there holding back …

Swingfly “Hot Like The Smokin’ Gun”

A Melodifestivalen 2011 reject now.  MickeyPaul went berserk for this… I’m such a hypocrite. I really like that Swingfly one too despite it having a TWAT rapper. It’s all about the… groove daddio. I like the sound and feel. They’ve …
