View Full Version : Will a Swedish entry win this year?

As a spin-off of my other poll, I present you with the "Will a Swedish entry win this year"-poll. I just find it quite funny how a whopping 10 songs in the contest are written by Swedes (1 by Finland Swedes and also the only one performed in Swedish) by this. That's almost 1/4th of the songs (23,8%). Clearly, the odds are ever in our favour.

So, this is not a poll of which song you think will win. This is a poll of whether or not you think one of the below songs will win, listed in the order of the age of the performer (they're all solo performances... or twin performances), youngest first, for no good reason:
* Cyprus - Snow White (24 November 1993) - "La La Love" (Bjorn Djupstrom, Viktor Svensson - Writers)
* Ireland - The Weasley Twins (16 October 1991) - "Waterline" (Nick Jarl - Writer)
* Finland - Giant Earrings (11 June 1990) - "När jag blundar" (Language)
* Greece - Eleftheria Eleftheriou (12 May 1989) - "Aphrodisiac" (Mikaela Stenström - Writer)
* Malta - Traditionally (For Malta) Sexually Ambiguous Male (5 may 1989) - "This Is the Night" (Johan Jämtberg, Mikael Gunnerås - Writers)
* Sweden - The Last Airbender (16 October 1983) - "Euphoria" (Everything)
* Italy - Amy Winehouse's Hair (2 February 1980) - "L'amore è femmina" (Kristoffer Sjökvist, Frida Molander - Writers)
* Azerbaijan - Too Much Mascara (2 December 1979) - "When the Music Dies" (A., S. Bjurman, S. Örn, J. Kronlund - Writers)
* Norway - Jacob Black/Taylor Lautner/A Llama (May 26 1987) - "Stay" (Peter Boström, Figge Boström - Writers)
* Spain - Another Weasley (27 September 1978) - "Quédate conmigo" (Thomas G:son, Tony Sánchez-Ohlsson, Erik Bernholm - Writers)
* United Kingdom - Ancient History (2 may 1936) - "Love Will Set You Free" (Martin Terefe - Writer)

So, if you think any of those entries is going to win, vote "Yes". If you think of the other 32 entries is going to win, vote "No".

Explanations for why I nicknamed the singers what I nicknamed them:
* Cyprus - The Cypriot preview video retells the story of Snow White with Ivi Adamou portraying the role of Snow White.
* Ireland - The Weasley Twins were rambunctious, energetic, mischievous and possibly incestous. So are the Grimes Twins.
* Finland - Pernilla Karlsson wore earrings the size of a small country in the Finnish natinal final. No, seriously, you could bludgeon small animals to death with them.
* Malta - Malta seems to only be capable of sending two kinds of artists to the contest: Female divas with huge voices or sexually ambigious male solo singers. Kurt Calleja is actually one of the least sexually ambiguous male singers to have represented Malta in recent memory.
* Sweden - My friend mentioned how Loreen's dance is totally a rip-off of the motions Avatar the Last Airbender uses (to bend air) and I haven't been able to unsee it since.
* Italy - Her hair reminds me of Amy Winehouse's (duh). At least the hair she sported when she performed "Per Sempre".
* Azerbaijan - During some of her live performances of the song, she's wearing way, way too much mascara.
* Norway - Tooji reminds me of Taylor Lauter (a.k.a. Jacob Black, a.k.a. Shirtless Pedophiliac Werewolf from Twiligt), who also looks like a llama. Tooji especially looks like Taylor Lautner/A Pedophiliac (Werewolf from Twiligt)/A Llama in CD cover for the single release of "Stay".
* Spain - She's a ginger.
* United Kingdom - He's 76! 76! Oldest male singer in the contest, ever. Would've been the oldest singer ever, period, if not for one of the Babuskas from Russia.

Only serious contender is Serbia. And Zelko might very well suffer a (relative) flop, say top 10 and not top 3.

And what about Martin Terefe (one of the authors of the song "Love Will Set You Free"- UK entry)? I know that he has for some time living in England, but comes from Sweden. Are we can consider him as the Swedish as well?

As far as I know, there's no magical list of all entries this year where a Swede's been in involved somehow. I simply looked at the names of the composers/lyricists and gleaned at their Wikipedia entries. I'll add that one to the opening post, though I highly doubt it'll win.

I think it will which is ok, but I have few more songs that I would like to see as a winner

I hope not. All broadcasters should compete with songs from their respective countries and Sweden itself is not my cup of tea. I discount Finland though (doesn't really fit in this category) which I like a lot.

How did I miss this thread? :lol:

Calling it a "swedish entry" isn't over the top? OK, there are some songs in the contest produced by Swedish people. But those songs are not Swedish.
If Ireland, Finland, Greece, Malta, Cyprus, Italy, Azerbaijan, Norway, Spain or United Kingdom win, it's not going to be Sweden's win, at all! Let's get real. The title should be changed.

This thread is partially (mostly) tongue-in-cheek, at least when it comes to classifying the songs as "Swedish". Those entries are all partially Swedish because they were written, produced and/or performed by Swedes (or in Finland's case, Finland-Swedes). Of course, they are not entirely Swedish (some are not even mostly Swedish), but they are partially Swedish nonetheless.

If it was written by British people, sure. The sole Swedish entry was also written by Finland-Swedes.

Both of you (as well as others) seem to have missed the fact that this thread (as well as its sister thread) is very much tongue-in-cheek. Did you maybe not read the poll options?

The poll question is "Pika pika pika" and the options are a reference to sex and a Star Wars reference.
