Denmark 2011 - A Friend in London - New Tomorrow

The Danish finals was a dismal parade of samey drabness, but then this one popped out of the mirk to nick the title. I didn't much care for it at first, but it's growing on me like a git. I'm seeing unlikely contender here, curse them.

  1. I would have agreed with you full heartedly had not for this... mind you - this is from 2006 Melodifestivalen. I'm annoyed cos I really love the guys, but this song should be checked out... just watch this -

  2. I've pointed this out elsewhere myself, Ido. It was the first thing that came to mind when I heard the Danish song. But while it is very similar in places, it's actually a lot more different musically than you'd first suspect.

    I've got no beef with it though - rather it sound a little bit like a song I liked first time round than have yet another with Fire/Desire, Maybe/Baby in it!

  3. Don't get me wrong, Roy, I LOVE this entry. But the chorus IS too similar. I remember how much I loved AJ in 2006 and really hoped he would win MF with Sing For Me... having said that, Take That and Shine also have that vibe in their chorus... :-)
    i agree that upon hearing the entire song it's quite different in other places, which make Norway the most annoying entry this year, being totally ripped of from the very well known Waka Waka
