We certainly hope not. But since this year’s Melodifestivalen tracks hit iTunes earlier this week, Sean Banan’s “Copacabana” has climbed straight to the top. That isn’t just signifiant because it’s a terrible song. It’s significant because Sean Banan performed all the way back in semi-final two. People still remember him!
The next three songs on the charts each came from the fourth semi-final. Behrang Miri’s “Jalla Dansa Sawa” is currently charting at #2 followed by (Christer Bjorkman’s obvious favourite) Ulrik Munther with “Tell the World I’m Here” and Robin Stjernberg with “You”.
Nine of the Top 10 songs this week come from Melodifestivalen. Only Swedish singer Zara Larsson (“Uncover”) isn’t competing.
