COVER2COVER – T-SHIRT

On 23rd August 2020 we (ESC Covers, EuroVisionMusic, Eurovision Coverage and Destination Eurovision) started publishing pictures of  VICTOR BUSH modeling a Eurovision t-shirt and holding the promo material for that entry. It is to make artists aware of entering the COVER2COVER SINGING contest we are arranging – closing date for entries is 30th October 2020. We have also shot short videos and that we will upload on our Youtube channel in the next week or so. We will publish this at random and the third one is from NORWAY 2007 – VEN A BAILAR CONMIGO of GURI SCHANKE. Thomas Gson composed this song. In total we will publish for 40 days in a row a different t-shirt.

SWEDISH SELECTION 2006 – KIKKI DANIELSSON

Time to showcase another of the CD singles from Melodifestival that ESCCovers obtained last month in Oslo via a OGAE Norway fan that got rid of her collection. This time it is KIKKI DANIELSSON and her song IDAG & IMORGON who has Thomas Gson among others as composer. It was in the 2006 selection. The second track on it is Kikki singing Yesterday once more of the Carpenters.

Pastora Soler was a big fan favourite in the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest in Baku, Azerbaijan with her song Quédate conmigo. Now she returns with another show stopping power ballad entitled La Tormenta (Storm).

The man behind the song is legendary Swedish composer Thomas G:son.

You can see the official lyric video for La Tormenta below.

SEMI FINAL 2 SONGS IN SWEDISH SELECTION 2017

Fans have been able to listen for approximately one minute each to the 7 songs in the second semi final.
I was slightly more impressed with the 7 songs in this semi final after hearing them for the first time – still I cannot see an instant hit for me.
Here is my rankings
7th – ALLYAWAN

Not at all my kind of music

6th – ETZIA

Expected more of this song from seeing the title. I like her dress, especially the sleeves

5th – DISMISSED

Sort of sound like The Ark and could surprise because of how they look and because of the gender issues they are highlighting. Conchitta has competition.

4th – BENJAMIN INGROSSO

He looks better than he sings and the song does very little for me

3rd – LISA AJAX

Interesting title “I don’t give A” and people will try and hear more

2nd – ROGER PONTARE

His 2000 “When spirits are calling my name”  really grew on me and this could have the same effect

1st – MARIETTE

We had ” A million voices” in Eurovision and easily could have “A million years” this time around. Good song but I think both Thomas Gson and Peter Bostrom have composed better songs.
