Melodifestivalen 2012: Webjoker Semifinal 4

The last 8 songs from the webjoker competition are here on the 4th semifinal and its time to make my comments about them:

Remember to visit to listen the songs or just click in the title of each one.

1.Need To Know
Artist: Bowties
Låtskrivare: Erik Andergren och Erik Källner, Växjö
The look of the guys is great and i like how this sounds, it has a great production and maybe thats one of the reasons i like this song. Its a nice entry and i can imagine this song on the MF but not getting in the final, hehe we will see whats going to happen, but thumbs up for this song and the Bowties.

2.Kärleken ler
Artist: Ricky och Ronny
Låtskrivare: Ronny Andersson, Gävle
When i read in the description hip hop i was a bit scared but i have to say that i kinda like it, i was waiting for something really bad but this sounds nice, i would definitely change the singers cause this song with a good female singer can be so much better but the song right now sounds cool so maybe this can get into the final.

3.Forever By Your Side
Artist: Trison
Låtskrivare: Tony Andersson och Martin Johansson (Trison), Skåne
Hello to Trison again! their first entry in the semifinal 1 was disqualified and here we have their 2nd entry. I liked more their 1st one, this song is not bad but i dont like it, and i guess thats all i can say.

4.Not Over You
Artist: Felicia Vårnäs
Låtskrivare: Ditte Lindbom, Stockholm
Now its time for the song of the 12 years old little girl, with this one we know they will change the singer cause she is too young for MF and ESC, a rock pop entry for the little girl and i wasnt expecting this. I really like it and i want this to get into the webjoker final. Good job to the composer and i cant wait to see this girl in a couple of years. I think the song is very strong with a pretty catchy chorus and she did a great job cause the vocals were very good. Vote for Not over you on Monday!

5.Letting Go
Artist: Jennifer
Låtskrivare: Sofia Yxklinten, Lund
This song has something interesting but it doesnt sound good, im so sure that this song with a nice production could be one of the favorites but now i just cant see this going to the final.

Artist: Patrick Egemo
Låtskrivare: Alexander Östman och Fredrik Langå, Stockholm
I dont know what to say about this one, it doesnt have anything interesting. Now that im listening again i can say that its has a good chorus and i kinda like it now hehe, i think its good enough to get in the webjoker final, so i wish good luck to the Higher team.

7.Box of Love
Artist: Vilda
Låtskrivare: Anton Fahlgren, Örnsköldsvik
Its Vilda again, last semifinal she had the songbird and ended in the 7th place. Now i feel this song its boring and i dont like the lyrics, i dont want this kinda songs in the MF so i all i can say its: see you next year Vilda!

8. Believe
Artist: Carolina Jakobsson
Låtskrivare: Carl Hansson och Emil Valtersson, Stockholm
And here we have the last song from the webjoker competition, the bad thing about this song is her horrible vocal performance cause i really think this song is nice, so bad we didnt listen it with the vocals of a fantastic singer, it would have been one of the finalist but i guess it still have a chance, cause the semifinal its on monday so if you are Swedish dont forget to vote for your favorite.

Now my ranking of the semifinal 4:
8.Box of love
7.Letting go
6.Forever by your side
4.Kärleken ler
2.Need to know
1.Not over you

Melodifestivalen 2012: Webjoker Semifinal 3

The songs of the 3rd Semifinal of the Webjoker 2012 were released when the voting from the 2nd semifinal was closed, now lets see what do i think about them:

(Click on the title to listen the song)

1. Marilyn Monroe
Artist: Never Alone
Låtskrivare: Christofer Erixon och Joakim Björnberg
The song number one was the last one i listened cause when i started to listen the songs this one wasnt on the web, i dont know why, but then when i saw the picture of the boys from Never Alone i knew this was going to be good and once again my intuation was right, this song has a great sound, its pretty catchy and imo its the best of this semifinal, i really would like to see this guys on the Melodifestivalen, they got a good image, they can sing and this song its really good, so congratulations to the guys who also were the composers of the song, so a round of applause for them and i really hope to see this on the webjoker final, so if you are Swedish and you are reading this, you should vote on monday from 12 to 13 for this amazing song. Go Never Alone!

2.She Is Love
Artist: Fredrik Sjöstedt
Låtskrivare: Fredrik Sjöstedt, Karlstad
Well this was the 1st song i listened and it left me with the no bad not good feeling, i think thats all i can say, i dont even remember the song so that might be bad.

3.I Didn't Wanna Say Goodbye
Artist: Elin Jakobsson
Låtskrivare: Jozsef Nemeth, Örebro
Elin is back on this semifinal with another piano song, i think this one its a bit better that the other one but still i think its not good enough to get into a final and i definitely cant see it in a Melodifestivalen stage, its just an ok song, nothing wow.

4.Ingenting, ingen
Artist: Caroline Coquard
Låtskrivare: Caroline Coquard, Gävle
This semifinal its a bit weak, i think this song might be interesting but all i listened was the same sound in 3minutes and it was boring, it doesnt have something magical that made me wanna listen again, maybe i would like it more if i knew what is the song about but right now i dont think it should get into a final.

5.Dance It All Away
Artist: Olle Andersson
Låtskrivare: Olle Andersson och Stefan Amberg, Norrtälje
Well after 3 boring songs this came and even if it doesnt have a great production i think this has potential and i like it, this right now sounds like a demo but imagine this with a singer and better production, i think i can see it in the melodifestivalen, i dont know, we will see, but i can say that this was nice.

Artist: Vilda
Låtskrivare: Oliver Lundström, Johan Åberg och Robin Öman, Stockholm
I think this song has something, i dont know what but there is something i like and there are a couple of things i didnt like but its a nice entry, its fun, fresh, weird and i kinda like it.

7.On the Top of the Mountain
Artist: Madeleine Ericson
Låtskrivare: Madeleine Ericson, Göteborg
What can i say about this?, WTF is this? sorry but i think its horrible, the instrumental part in the chorus seems to be out of rhythm, i dont like this at all. The 2nd worse song in the webjoker till now, of course the 1st place its for kitchen floor but this one was very close to the 1st place. It was kinda a painful moment to my ears.

8.Jag kommer ut
Artist: San Francisco
Låtskrivare: Stefan Krakowski, Stockholm
Then after those weird sounds with bad vocals we had on the song number 7, this song came up and it made happy, as everybody is saying the chorus sounds like the E det fel pa mej? chorus but you know what? i dont care, i love this, the last part its great and the key change its fabulous, this got a fantastic energy so sweden vote for this one too!

So here its the raking of the Semifinal 3:
8.On top of the mountain
7.She is love
6.I didnt wanna say goodbye
5.Ingenting, Igen
3.Dance it all away
2.Jag kommer ut
1.Marilyn Monroe

Melodifestivalen 2012: Webjoker Semifinal 2

The voting of the Semifinal 1 ended and the songs from the 2nd Semifinal were released and here are my opinions:

(Click in the title to listen the songs)

1.For the Win
Artist: Keylas
Låtskrivare: Oscar Lindstein, Stockholm
We start with another song by the Keylas autotune girls, if they finished last with the other song i cant see this going through, this cheap electro pop song with autotune its not for the melodifestivalen but i can see it in a Malta national final, obviously getting a bad position but thats all i can say, i liked more the song from the 1st semifinal, this is just not good.

2.What If
Artist: Nordic Shine
Låtskrivare: Stefan Lebrot, Stockholm
This one its pretty interesting, it has something, i think its the strong chorus. Its not a "omg what a song, i love it" but its a nice entry and after the autotune fest, its good to listen something good.

3.I'm Yours
Artist: Elin Jakobsson
Låtskrivare: Jozsef Nemeth, Örebro
A cute jazzy song that its not bad but can be too boring for a Melodifestivalen stage, i like it but i just to listen when i need to relax. This in the MF is a not finalist, so if we are going to get a song from this webjoker competition we should be thinking which song can get a high result. Imo this one is nice but not enough.

4.Beautiful Love
Artist: David Nestander
Låtskrivare: Erik Kohl, Umeå
I found this one very interesting, i really like it, i think it need a great singer, i would love to listen it with female vocals but i really think this one can be good, i dont know if it is for the mello but at least it can be for a webjoker final.

5.Kitchen Floor
Artist: Kajsa Ingemansson
Låtskrivare: Niclas Malmberg, Uppsala
I was really excited for this song when i read the title but WTF is this, im feeling sorry cause i called the Keylas autotune fest but at least they didnt sound that bad like this crap, worst song till now, its just horrible.

6.Se mig som jag är (om du ser)
Artist: Sören Karlsson
Låtskrivare: Sören Karlsson, Ludvika
I was expecting something bad when i saw the picture but i understand that its a songwriter singing a demo so i said pheww, we can say its a dated song but i think with some good and modern arrangement it can sound great and with strong female vocals this can be very interesting so i have to say i like it.

7.A Heartbeat Away
Artist: Demosångare
Låtskrivare: Jonas Lundström, Stockholm
Finally something great, i cant understand why the singer didnt want to give her name, her vocals were very good maybe too screamy in the 2nd part but she is a good singer. I love the chorus and the melody, of course it needs to change some little things like the last part which  in my opinion its not good but i can see this one on the MF stage fighting to get in the top 5, the composer did a great job so i really wish all the best to this song.

8.Through the Fire
Artist: Greta
Låtskrivare: Margreta Sandkvist och Jim Wallenborg, Bollnäs
When i saw the title and the pic, i knew we were going to get the song we always get with lyrics like your touch, your eyes, your lips, the fire, lets dance and stuff like that, its not bad but its not good also i hope the composer its just singing the demo cause she didnt found anyone to sing it cause her vocals were very bad, but i think this song with better vocals can sound much better and maybe it can have a chance but i dont see it in the MF.

So after i listened all the songs from this Semifinal 2, i have to say that no one beated I mina drömmar but here is my ranking:

8.Kitchen floor
7.For the win
6.I'm yours
5.Se mig som jag är (om du ser)
4.Through the fire
3.What if
2.Beautiful love
1.A heartbeat away

Melodifestivalen 2012: Webjoker Semifinal 1 - Results

The 1st Semifinal of the Webjoker competition was yesterday, the songs I mina drömmar and All day all night are now in the final. As you all can imagine im very happy for I mina drömmar and im hoping that the song was the televote winner cause i really want to see it in the Melodifestivalen but i think the other all day all night crappy song was the one who won cause i cant see SVT choosing that song over other nice songs, i think this kind of competition its not fair in some ways cause they arent lots of people who vote or who knows this so the ones who vote i think are 80% family, friends and fans who doesnt vote for the song and of course there is the other 20% that listen all the songs and vote for their favorite, we will see whats going to happen, i cant stop listening to I mina drömmar and i wish all the best in the final to the I mina drömmar team!

Melodifestivalen 2012 - Webjoker Semifinal 1

Oh yeah, the Melodifestivalen 2012 started with the Webjoker selection, since 2010 Svt gives the opoturnity to participate in the MF to non famous artist and composers. This year the Webjoker selection will be like a mini melodifestivalen, from 570 songs STV selected only 32, this songs will be separeted in Semifinals of 8 songs each one so we will have 4 semifinals like in the big Mello, the audience will have 1 hour to vote for their favorite song and only 1 song will go to the webjoker final then SVT will choose another song and we will have 8 songs in the Final. This year only 1 song will have the chance to partipate in the Melodifestivalen 2012.

Its time to give my opinion about the songs:

1. Set Me Free
Artist: Trison
Upphovsmän: Tony Andersson, Martin Johansson, Trison, Skåne
I think the melody of this song its nice but to me the whole songs sounds like a 1st demo, where all you got in mind its a good melody but still dont found the right lyrics for it and you just put something pretty simple and bad. All this song needs its good lyrics and of course a good singer, but in general i think i like the beat of this song.

2. Wish You Luck
Artist: Billie Dee
Upphovsmän: Christian Lumbana, Stockholm
When i saw the picture of this girl i though "this is going to be a good one" and my intuition was right, i really like it, it has something catchy but not like a simple catchy song but in a charming way, i dont know if you guys can understand what i mean, this song with a better arrangement can be great, still i cant see it getting in the top 4 in the Melodifestivalen.

3. How About You?
Artist: Keylas
Upphovsmän: Oscar Lindstein, Stockholm
I dont know what to say about this one, it wasnt bad but it wasnt the best so its like meh, i didnt love it or hate it but right now i cant even remember it. I think this song needs a stronger beat and a better last part, also a good singer cause this was like an autotune fest.

4. Your Majesty
Artist: The Commoneers
Upphovsmän: Mark Anthony Woznicki, Sundsvall
This one was boring as hell, i didnt like it.

5. Catch Me
Artist: Maria Klemetrud
Upphovsmän: Ditte Lindbom, Maria Klemetrud, Stockholm
This one its kinda nice but too cheap and for 2004, 2006, idk i think its not good enough, if you are going to make this kinda song it has to be great cause if it has something bad its going to sound cheap and trashy.

6. I mina drömmar
Artist: Maria BenHajji
Upphovsmän: Nanna Bing, Thomas Cars, Uppsala
When i saw the title of the songs before listening, this one was the 1st one i wanted to listen cause if there is something i love its swedish songs. When i listened her voice and the first words i just fell in love with it, i cant describe all the things i felt but those 3minutes were amazing, i wasnt expecting a great song in the webjoker competition but i can imagine this song on the big stage getting in the top 4. A round of applause to the composers and to the fantastic singer. This one deserves to be in the final!

7. Seven Years
Artist: Flying Kite
Upphovsmän: Moa Rönnåsen, Robin William-Olsson, Stockholm/Hallsberg
Well as you can imagine when i listened this one all i was thinking of was I mina drömmar but i think this song its nice but not a contender to win, i cant imagine it on the Melodifestivalen.

8. All Day All Night
Artist: Grand Slam
Upphovsmän: Andy Swaniz, Peter Andersson
And some glam to finish, imo bad melody, bad lyrics, not good vocals, its just a mess. If we compare this with In your dreams (ESC Norway 2005) or Pamela (Stala & So - Euroviisut 2011) all i can say its this is garbage.

So my ranking for the Semifinal 1 of the Webjoker 2012 is this one:
8.Your Magesty
7.All Day All Night
6.Catch Me
5.How About You?
4. Seven Years
3.Set Me Free
2.Wish You Luck
1.I Mina Drömmar

On monday the Swedish audience will have 1 hour to vote for their favorite, to see the rules and the numbers enter here.
