Sweden announces first four names for Melodifestivalen 2011

The first four artists and songs to participate in Europe’s most popular national final have just been announced! They are:

Song Title: Desperados
Artist: Pernilla Andersson
Composer/Lyricist: Pernilla Andersson

Song Title: E De Fel På Mig
Artist: Linda Bengtzing
Composer/Lyricist: Pontus Assarsson, Thomas G:son, Jörgen Ringqvist

Song title: Me And My Drum
Artist: Swingfly
Composer/Lyricist: Teron Beal, Patrik Magnusson, Johan Ramström

Song Title: En Blick Och Något Händer
Artist: Lasse Stefanz
Composer/Lyricist: Alexander Bard, Ola Håkansson, Tim Norell

It’s really great to see Linda Bengtzing back in Melodifestivalen. This will be her fourth participation and going by the song’s composers, it is going to be one massive schlager anthem. Another composer that caught my attention is Alexander Bard. The rest of the artists will be making their debut and represent a wide variety of musical genres.

    Linda is so glad to her qualifiing that it’s hard not to be happy for her though I don’t know what to expect from authors of Jag vill om du vågar (didn’t like it).

    I quite liked the song, but then again, it was the ONLY true schlager song this year, so maybe I latched on to it like a drowning sailor to a lifeline just to get my schlager fix.
    I’m hoping the authors have some dimensionality and give Linda the chance at success she so richly deserves!
