Sofia's Choice

These two songs are dedicated to my dear colleague Sofia. She had the exquisite taste of picking these as two of her favourite ESC-songs. I couldn't agree with her more. "Stad i ljus" is one of the very best entries Sweden has ever sent to Europe and anyone who followed this blog last year knows how much I loved "Hold on, be strong". Sit back, relax and enjoy...


Sweden 1988. Tommy Körberg - "Stad i ljus"

English version HERE called "Unchained Lights". Beautiful lyrics by Py Bäckman (I presume?!).


Norway 2008. Maria Haukaas Storeng - "Hold On Be Strong"

I would also like to add this video that I found on YouTube. Here's Maria in Norwegian Idol 2004. She finished 6th. What a voice that woman has. Amazing!

I agree totally with Sofia. Stad i ljus is one of the greatest songs that I've ever heard, frankly...

Yoyo, I have many favourite songs and this was Sofia's choice. Anna Vissi in my heart 4ever dude! :) Do I feel a "Yoyo's choice" coming up? Requests can be sent on Facebook or in a comment here. :)

This won't have effect in reality, that's exactly what I think.
