  1. Julio STRANGLES

    Croatia has a decent song :faint:
  2. Rua Haldor Lægreid Impersonator

    :faint: It's actually decent, you're right - Sokko's going to hate me. :'(

    I prefer it to generic pop and his voice is interesting. Might qualify, I think.
  5. Julio STRANGLES

    good lord that IS crap
  6. Rua Haldor Lægreid Impersonator

    Holy shit.
  7. jw HI. I'M ADAM SCOTT.

    Have you been sniffing Anaconda's drugs stash again
  8. Anaconda I'm as sick as fuck.

    So nobody likes Leonard Cohen. Not that Serhat is at his level. But at least he tries.
  9. Mina Member with a "past"

    I love Leonard Cohen and that's who Serhat reminded me of...as you said, not at his level but he tries.

    :gr: Greece is out. No comment.
  11. Norbert Welcome

    omg Greece is so bad!
  12. Mina Member with a "past"

    I think it's ok. I prefer it to typical pop or ethnic...hip hop isn't everyone's cup of tea but I find the song acceptable. Wouldn't vote for it but the same goes for 90% of the songs chosen so far.
  13. Ronini SHIT Taste Central

    If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all?
    This is one of those that can win me over with an excellent live. I kind of like the chorus, I kind of don't like the verses. Decidedly meh, all in all.

    The Australian song is ok but, for me, it's one more song I wouldn't vote for. It reminds me a bit of past entries of Azerbaijan..on the more boring side..I don't think it can win but it may do well (they did last year with something worse, after all)...and, basically, I'm now only waiting for the surprise from Azerbaijan.

    Did Greece send crap? Yes
    Did Australia send something good? Yes
    Will Azerbaijan go back to dreary female stuff? Yes

    What a Miltonesque ranking. Regardless, I think it's probably one of the strongest final line-ups ever, I'd say all the songs could easily achieve top 10 at Eurovision (apart from the AC qualifiers, but they are strictly #fun4Sverige) with a couple even challenging for winner/top 5 status. My preferred choice, taking the song and performance into account, would be Wiktoria - it's super catchy and I love the staging.

    Again, overall quite a strong year. 2015 was a turning point with the introduction of the app and an increase in more radio-friendly songs sung by young/up-and-coming singers. I am saddened by the changing of the guard (poor, brave Linda - and to a lesser extent Martin) but I think it's ultimately for the best and as Hasse showed, schlager/dansband will always have a place in the Swedish music scene and the hearts of the viewers.
