This is the story of you and I

It's time for the first instalment in a new series of posts with hidden or forgotten gems of the 90's. First off is J.K. with their "You & I":

As far as I know it was never really a hit here in Denmark, but I must have picked it up somwhere because it was like hearing a long lost love when I rediscovered it recently.

Now that's what I need tonight

I can't help it, but everytime The Attic releases something new I just love it instantly.

This one isn't excactly new, but I just discovered it recently and had to share it since it is yet again a masterpiece from The Attic. It's "Is Love What You Need Tonight":

Stay the night and day

Once again it's the time of year for the Eurovision. Again this year I'm not gonna give it much attention here in my blog, I'll just mention once again that it is very rarely you'll find the best songs amongst the top contenders or even in the final.

This year two of the best songs competed to become Sweden's chosen song of the year. Already getting a lot of airplay in Sweden is Alcazar with "Stay The Night":

But also Star Pilots had a good one with "Higher":

Both are typical swedish disco-pop songs. Sad Sweden didn't choose one of them, maybe they would have done better in the final.

But then again, for some reason these kinds of songs don't do very good anymore in the Eurovision. Can't understand why...
