THOMAS GSON, who composed many songs for Eurovision, including the 2012 winner EUPHORIA is having a birthday today. Continue reading HAPPY BIRTHDAY – THOMAS GSON
Norbert started with a marathon voting for the best songs of the new millennium.
Steps have a included a new song by Swedish legendary ESC songwriter, Thomas G:son, on their new album ‘What The Future Holds Pt. 2’.
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.
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.
Here are the links for ZAKK STYLES and his song HART GENEES (the Afrikaans cover of Cyprus 2017 – Gravity by Hovig composed by Thomas Gson)
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.

We finally have the entry from Cyprus for the 2017 Eurovision song contest
GRAVITY by Hovig
Composed by Thomas Gson
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.
