    For this edition, we are slowing down the tempo and switching back to the Swedish language again with the comeback of Sanna Nielsen to the FSC. This is the second time the Schlager-Pop singer, Melodifestivalen-veteran and former Eurovision Song Contest contestant, is entered to the contest (following a top. 10 position back in February 2017 with the entry Dansar bort med någon annan) <- click the title to read more about Sanna and her previous entry...

    The entry for this edition titled; Innan du lämnar mig (Before You Leave Me), is a classic yet timeless piano-Pop-ballad, a beautiful Swedish schlager-Pop-power-Ballad, presenting a personal and bittersweet love story sung by one of Sweden's finest vocalists, simply a nice fitting and calming start to the autumn (Northern hemisphere) period, just relax and enjoy!

    LYRICS [ENGLISH TRANSLATION]:
    As for the Swedish results this time around, it's nice to be in the top. 10 for a third month in a row now, and top. 5 for a second month in a row. Also nice to see some juries (countries) voting for a Swedish entry that didn't support us for some time or rarely do I hope we will be able to get that extra little push soon though and secure the first victory in over 1.5 years, but we'll see... only time will tell.

    Thank you to all that voted for the Swedish entry in the #116 - October 2018 edition

    FSC#117 - November 2018

    Menke
    Moln




    So many of us are now entering darker and colder periods as November and the deep autumn period is upon us here in the very north of the globe. As I often choose entries to fit the mood of the season, then what better way than to slow down the tempo from the previous month even further? So for this edition, Sweden is sending the beautiful, calming and poetically moody dreamy ballad Moln (Clouds), performed by 26-year old newcomer Sara Menke.

    Moln is Menke's debut single, released almost a year ago back in November 2017, taken from the singer's debut album Till havet (To the Sea), that got released in May 2018. Both the single and the album are musical interpretations of poems written by the late Swedish poet and novelist Karin Boye. While not aiming for the commercial market, the releases by Menke so far have received both domestic and international acclaim and although being sung fully in the Swedish language, Moln has already been used in an international advertisement campaign by the Spanish clothing manufacturing company Massimo Dutti and the song has also reached some 1.5 million streams on music streaming services.

    It's nice to see another top. 10 for Sweden, although I must say I had a bit higher hopes for this one... nonetheless...

    Re: FSC Sweden

    It's nice to finish off the year within the top. 10, and considering I didn't see much pre-hype for it on the forum, it did better than I feared however I can clearly see based on the results that it was a polarizing entry, either collection 0's or top points, but I guess it's better to be polarizing than to be nothing at all

    Sweden had a pretty decent year this time around, results-wise a slight decrease from the 2017 edition however, still though, just like the previous year, Sweden managed to score 7/12 top. 10's (including two top. 2 positions and another top. 5). Since I entered FSC, it has always been a mission for me to stay true to my own taste in music, but also try to promote and showcase different styles of music as well as various acts that at times might be unknown to most people outside of Sweden (and even in some cases to the vast majority of Swedes). I have yet tried to keep a fair language balance, with 1/3 of the entries in 2018 being in Swedish (or some other local language).

    You are correct, thanks for pointing it out! I just added calculations from an Excel sheet but it seems there were some mistakes. I updated it now

    Thank you again for your support throughout the year

    FSC#119 - January 2019

    Ludomir feat. Josef Johansson
    Äventyr




    Sweden is starting off the new year on an uplifting note with the catchy, melodic and sympathetic dream house track Äventyr (Adventure) by 18-year old up-and-coming DJ music producer Teo Ludomir Wiik in a collaboration with 25-year old singer/songwriter Josef Johansson. The charming uptempo track, which incorporates dream house with Swedish vispop, comes with a nice message of self-exploration and is an optimistic way to start the new year.

    Ludomir debuted already at the age of 15 back in 2015 with the track Ready for Your Love, and has later on followed up with singles like Kiss and Tell [2016] and Closing In [2017]. The single Äventyr, and this month's entry for Sweden, is Ludomir's first official release in Swedish and was released back in January 2018. Apart from waiting for his commercial breakthrough, Ludomir has also done remixes for other artists.

    Josef Johansson is another up-and-coming young artist yet achieving his breakthrough. To fans of the Swedish selection for the Eurovision Song Contest; Melodifestivalen, some might recall his entry Hela natten (The Whole Night) from the 2014 selection.
