All I learned is how I still don’t like Spotify, from trying it two years ago 🙁
If Norway want good result at Eurovision they must sent Linnea Dale to Eurovision. She will get many points from public and juries and she wili be in TOP 10 a maybe in TOP 5 , and she wili be in TOP 10 both in juries list and public list. Second choice for Norway is Carl Espen, but i think result will be like France 2009, TOP 10 in final , many points from juries but small points from public.
My favorite is High Hopes, but I do have to say that I also really like Silent Storm. Bensin would probably be my third favorite. Overall it’s shaping up to be a great NF!
Now that I’m able to hear the songs: Semi-One: 1) High Hopes – An amazing, alternative-sounding pop song that reminds me of “I Feed You My Love” but taken in a different direction. Love it, and Linnea’s vocals are very unique. 2) Best Friend’s Boyfriend – Cute girly, teenage pop. Something that the younger generation would probably listen to and like.

I agree that Silent Storm would make a big impact at ESC, but my personal favourite is Sole Survivor.
here is Silent storm on youtube
I’m sorry but no good songs Norway!
Linnea Dale is probably my favorite 🙂
Won’t let me listen to the songs.
And as for these songs…I got multiple problems while obtaining them for listening, but the ones that I listened through as a whole, I like the ones from Martine Marbel and Carl Espen.
The Espen one is not new, Didrik back in 2010 had something similar but more powerful, while Espen has something “John Legend” in it.
I like the freshness of Martine’s song, nevertheless.
Norway, be my guest and send something else.
Dhani we get it, you’re a fanboy for Helena haha
Dhani, stop spamming all these threads with your Helena thingy. Some of us clearly DON”T LIKE the song! Thank you.
Charlie or Timbre for Copenhagen 😀
Why is everyone liking Silent Storm? I don’t find it anything special…
ANYBODY WHO KNOWS IF UKRAINE WILL WITHDRAW FROM EUROVISION 2014???
Wow to that last one, Silent storm. Would be the best ballad in Eurovision since Iceland 2009.
Is anyone else having trouble listening to some of the songs?
Linnea Dale for Norway 2014
Helena to cph!
