SVT has released the lyrics of the seven competing songs in the first deltavling of Melodifestivalen 2015. Fangirls can already sing along to Eric Saade‘s “Sting”, though they may struggle to identify with the testoserone-fueled lyrics: “I’m still dancing, Oooo / Dude you’re drunk and what not, Hey / You want what I’ve got / Dreamers dream yeah, Oooo.” Say what now?

Plenty of Swedes are also looking forward to Dolly Style‘s “Hello, Hi”In a recent interview they told us their song is all about bringing people together, and the lyrics show that: “I can help you sing this song / But you have to come along / When we do it dolly style / We do it Hello Hi.” Well that’s sweet.

Eurovision veteran Jessica Andersson seems to be going for your typical #melfest entry. It’s all about empowerment and moving on. Lyrically we totally approve: “I rise abo..o..ve… / My need for lo..o..o..ve.”

You can read all the lyrics here and below.

Sting lyrics — Eric Saade

eric saade melodifestivalen 2015 deltavling 1 rehearsals

It’s gonna sting so bad
And drive you mad
It’s gonna sting so bad
And drive you mad
It’s gonna sting so bad
And drive you mad
It’s gonna sting so bad

Damn damn that was a rough night  Hey
You lost a fair fight

I’m still dancing  Oooo
Dude you’re drunk and what not  Hey
You want what I’ve got
Dreamers dream yeah  Oooo

I knew you before you were a cool kid
So screw you  right  Oo

Oh  Sti..i..i..ng
It’s gonna sting so bad
Oh yea.a.h
Oh Sti..i..i..ng
It’s gonna drive you mad
It’s gonna drive you mad
You’ll think about my girl
You’ll dream about my world
Tomorrow’s gonna hurt like hell
Oh Sti..i..i..ng
It’s gonna sting so bad
Oh yea.a.h

I don’t mind the lying  Hey
You keep on trying
Losers lose yeah  Oooo
She’s drop dead hot amazing  Hey
A little crazy
Brother now she’s mine  Ooo
I knew you before you were a cool kid
So screw you right  Oo

Oh  Sti..i..i..ng
It’s gonna sting so bad
Oh yea.a.h

Oh Sti..i..i..ng
It’s gonna drive you mad
It’s gonna drive you mad
You’ll think about my girl
You’ll dream about my world
Tomorrow’s gonna hurt like hell
Oh Sti..i..i..ng
It’s gonna sting so bad
Oh yea.a.h

It’s gonna sting so bad
And drive you mad
It’s gonna sting so bad
And drive you mad
It’s gonna sting so bad
And drive you mad
It’s gonna sting so bad

It’s gonna sting so bad
And drive you mad
It’s gonna sting so bad
And drive you mad
It’s gonna sting so bad
And drive you mad
It’s gonna sting so bad

Damn damn that was a rough night
You lost a fair fight
I’m still dancing  Oho
Oh  Sti..i..i..ng

It’s gonna sting so bad
Oh yea.a.h
Oh Sti..i..i..ng
It’s gonna drive you mad
Yea.a.h
You’ll think about my girl
my girl
You’ll dream about my world
Tomorrow’s gonna hurt like hell
Oh Sti..i..i..ng
It’s gonna sting so bad
Oh ye.a.a.h

It’s gonna sting so bad

And drive you mad

Apparently Eric stole his friend’s girl, and his friend hasn’t realized it yet. So innovative (and a little douchey)! I simply cannot get why they selected “sting” to be the oft-repeated phrase. Yes the song is about pain, but perhaps it’s also a play on something dirty?

Can’t Hurt Me Now lyrics — Jessica Andersson

jessica andersson melodifestivalen 2015 deltavling 1

Kids are playing in the park
Stars are lighting up the dark
Cars are driving by my house
Everything is perfect now
I rise abo..o..ve
My need for lo..o..o..ve
I know one day I fly again
But that wont be because of you

Can’t hurt me now can’t hurt me no..w
I’m over you
Can’t hurt me now can’t hurt me now
No matter what you do

I face my fears alone
I know I find my way back home
Can’t hurt me now can’t hurt me no..o..o..w
I’m over yo..o..u
I’m  over you..

Wish upon a hopeless star
Faith will tell you who you are
Surrender to the child inside
There will come a better time for love
I rise above
For love
My need for lo..o..ve
I know one day I fly again
But that won’t be because of you

Can’t hurt me now can’t hurt me now
I’m over you
Can’t hurt me now can’t hurt me now

No matter what you do
I face the dark alone
I know I find my way back home

Can’t hurt me now can’t hurt me no..o..w
I’m over yo..o..u
I’m  over you..   Oho

All by myself I let him go
I had to find strength in what I know
And never look back on the gilt
And the blames to mear and  now
I’m over yo…..o…u

Can’t hurt me now can’t hurt me now
I’m over you
Can’t hurt me now can’t hurt me now
No matter what you do
I face my fears alone

I know I find my way back home
Can’t hurt me now can’t hurt me no..o..w
I’m over yo..o..u
I’m  over you
I’m over yo..o..u
I’m  over you
I’m over you

Jessica’s song is a typical #melfest entry. Judging from “I’m over you”, “I rise above”, “I know one day I fly again”, I know I find my way back home”, this must be Shirley Clamp volume 2 or something?

Just finished listening to all 8 snippets and to no surprise on my part … I didn’t like any. Jessica is back with another lame boring sad ballad where she seems happy while she sings … Eric is …. agh … lord … I’m not gonna even waste my time on this kid… he’s in the final already, right? … Dolly’s impersonators are a joke … and that kind of joke ESC fans want to have for no reason. It’s just so … disappointing how bad MF can be musicallywise. God allows a miracle to happen in the 3 forthcoming… Read more »

the lyrics to dolly style’s song, and their looks, remind me of EMA 2012 participants eva and nika with their song konichiwa ;v;

Rooting for Jessica and Eric … because these 2 we all know? Regardless of the possibility of how bad their songs can turn out to be? Okey … familiar territory here …
Plus: the joke entry comes from 3 wigs trying to homage Dolly Parton as if Carnival was the way to win Eurovision, deepening its kitchyness, questioning the musicality of the whole competition …. but entertaining the audience cause this seems to be the ultimate goal …

Even if “Sting” will be worse than “Manboy” and “Popular”, Eric Saade will be still one of the biggest favorites of Eurovision 2015.

But yeah, none of these lyrics are good. If Eric or the Dolls win, theyll be killed by the Juries in the semis, though likely to be saved by the televoters only to be killed again the the GF and finish on the right side of the table.

@Francis: Finally an American like me can unfairly have a say in a song contest in Europe. Hope that works 😀

Eric’s song seems so terrible it’s funny. I predict a 2014 Anton Ewald-like result for him this year.
