  1. Cant wait MF 2012…. I hope that Red One will send some better song this time… It will be tough competition this year for sure (Danny, Kempe, Red One, and who know which other artists entering)…
    Realy, cant wait Ferbruary…

    • I hope there will be some ballads like Spring för livet… I still love that song!
      Molly Sandén might help me with that ^^

      • I still have My heart is refusing me, Alive, Spring for Livet, In the club in my phone, and im listening to them oftenly :-)

        • Alive is great too! In the club I listened to often enough to bear it now ^^

          Apparently Charlotte Perelli and Timoteji will sing two of the songs!

          • I only listen to ‘Spring för livet’ (what a sophisticated orchestration!) and ‘My Heart Is Refusing Me’ on a regular basis. Well, there is no point in speculating what MF 2012 will bring us before we have listened to the songs but I certainly hope that it will be an improvement compared to the very lame MF 2011. And better results too, please. At least send someone who knows how to sing live …

            • Hey Togravus it’s me, Morgan. I only listen to “My Hert Is Refusing Me” and “Better or Worse” from last year, which was by far the worst MF since I’ve followed (since 2004)… However the list with many Swedish titles and a few interesting names can be good. I can’t see MF getting worse than 2011 which I hope will be one of a kind. Only two Kempe, but three G:isson oh well… “Young blood” lol… But that Ulrik Munther is a very sexy sexy sexy boy… oops…

            • Ulrik Munther? Seriously? He’s like a blonder Justin Bieber….

            • i said he was sexy that’s all :p

            • Hey Morgan. Good to see that we all meet here again. Btw, if you are in the mood for a (bad) surprise, check my comment on the Andorran thread ;-)

          • OMG. this will be great MF if thats true… I love them both… Charlotte was my biggest favorite back in 2008 (with Vania Fernandez)…
            Timoteji are great also…

  2. I must remember that ET is back in business. MF is always a big shindig. I am not terribly keen on that type of shows (the ones dominated by glitter and gloss), but I am hoping for good songs nevertheless. I love the fact of there being so many songs in Swedish. Good luck.

    P.S.: the usual suspects are present. and so are the shameful prerecorded backing vocals.
