Fresh from his recent Melfest stint, Eric Saade is back doing what he does best – brash, throw-away, pop-bangers. And we say halleloo! Because it ain’t summer until Saade sings.

Carrying on in the tradition of “Boomerang” and “Take A Ride”, “Girl From Sweden” is a wonderful dollop of breezy fun. And it’s unmistakably Saade. For who else could pull off the feat of boasting that “a lot of girls wanna get down with me” on his globetrotting adventures, yet everything is alright since he’s got a special girl from Sweden? Her identity remains a mystery, as the music video is populated with numerous Swedish women, including three comely maidens in a field. You gotta admire his bravado.

It’s also nice to see that his fondness for brass remains, and the whistling riff only adds to the enjoyment. Sadly though, this is lacking… well the sting of “Sting”. Whereas the latter whacked you squarely between the ears, “Girl From Sweden” is so light it might just float off. But then we can’t expect to over-indulge on pop perfection everytime. And we’ll never say no to our guy from Sweden.

Eric Saade Interview at Melfest 2015

Eric Saade – Girl From Sweden Lyrics

She got eyes like a tiger, tiger
got a heart of a lion, lion
she’s hotter than fire, fire
got me hooked with a la la la la la la

Like cherry, cherry
she’s sweeter than candy, candy
I ain’t dumb but I’m ready, ready
for a little bit of la la la la la la

I’ve been around the world
a lot of girls wanna get down with me
still I can’t wait till I return
to the one that’s meant for me

Spend a weekend in Paris
already leaving
Off to Miami
high like a ceiling
high like a ceiling

Spend a weekend in Paris
already leaving
Off to Miami
high from the feeling
I’m so high from the feeling

I got a girl from Sweden
I gotta, I gotta, I gotta girl from
I gotta, I got a a girl from Sweden
I gotta, I gotta, I gotta girl from
I gotta, I got a a girl from Sweden

Hey brother, brother
listen up when I tell ya, tell ya
she’s not like the others, others
got me drunk on her la la la la la love
It’s funny, funny she’s all over my body, body
I gotta make her my honey, honey
tonight we gon’ la la la la la la (yep)

I’ve been around the world
a lot of girls wanna get down with me
but still I can’t wait till I return
to the one that’s meant for me

Spend a weekend in Paris
already leaving
Off to Miami
high like a ceiling
high like a ceiling

Spend a weekend in Paris
already leaving
Off to Miami
high from the feeling
I’m so high from the feeling

I got a girl from Sweden
I gotta, I gotta, I gotta girl from
I gotta, I got a a girl from Sweden
I gotta, I gotta, I gotta girl from
I gotta, I got a a girl from Sweden

I got a girl from Sweden

Spend a weekend in Paris
already leaving
Off to Miami
high like a ceiling

Spend a weekend in Paris
already leaving
Off to Miami
high from the feeling
I’m so high from the feeling

I got a girl from Sweden
Sweden
I gotta, I gotta, I got a girl from
I gotta, I got a girl from Sweden
I gotta, I gotta, I got a girl from
I gotta, I got a girl from Sweden
I got a girl from Sweden I got a girl from Sweden

A girl from Sweden here…

Got to say I applaud that there are real swedish girls in this video. Not just some blonde half naked supermodels. I applaud Saade for showing the real beauty of the swedish landscape and multiculturalism.

The song itself sucks.

I kinda like it. Is it a Pitbull Mr Worldwide parody? I think it’s catchy and witty.

I love this song so much. It’s so bold and cocky and is way more fun than “Sting”. Plus the video just adds an extra level of crazy. Go Eric.

Dude, this song is awful. Eric can do much better, even “Coming Home” was better. And of course “Sting” or “Popular” or “Manboy”… We all know he is a bubblegum-trashy-pop, but man…

Celebrating Swedish girls with a cheap imitation of the worst US musics, sung in English? One word: fake.

@ Oh Otna… 😛
I ”love” you too <3 :* 😛

But to admit, *Popular* was better song than Mans' winner song though..

My #1 favorite song by your beloved singer is *Marching (In The Name Of Gay Love)*…It is fantastic song & i can not deny this..

I agree with you Mario about it not being the best, but I can’t blame Wiwibloggs for loving him as much as I do 😛

@ Yes…*Sting* 4 me was from the better good songs in Melodifestivalen as well…I must had it in my top10 most liked songs overall among the 28.. So thats what we are talking about… If we compare not only the songs of Melodifestivalen but ALL the hundreds songs in all the NFs on this season *Sting* certainly aws NOT the #1 best song.. Not even from the top5 or top10 best songs.. Thats what i mean.. ————————————————— With no offense to our team of WiWiBloggs but it really makes me wonder why all this big love & infatuation towards Eric… Read more »

In Dusseldorf’s Vision he only lost in final’s televoting for just 2 points.. That was oooch indeed… But for a big hot favorite 4 the victory like he was supposed to be he did badly in the juries finishng just 10th.. Of course he did much worse than Il Volo of Italy did..At least them were able to earn 171 points compared with his 106 points.. At least Azerbaijan’s song faired much better in both televoting & juries although lost to Italy with big gap of points.. *Running Scared* might was not winning material song but was just wonderful song…Eldar’s… Read more »

Sorry to hear it Mario… 😛

For me, Sting was my seventh favourite song in Melfest, but my fourth favourite in the final (behind Mariette, Dinah and Linus) because Ellen, Molly and 1by1 all went out early :/

It sounds a little bit like “#fail” by Oscar Zia, but this song is still good.

@ Otna from now on im gonna act like i don’t know you girl… 😛 😛 Our wiwibloggs friendship is over 😛 😛 Im gonna pray for you girl for your soul & salvation 😛 hehehe <3 😉 I was about to actually write that *Sting* although good enough song was trashy with idiotic dumb lyrics.. It definitely did not deserve to get voted by our wiwibloggs contributors as the #1 best song in the NF season of our Vision 2015.. Not even in the top5-10.. There were multiple other songs that were better than *Sting* and mainly all of… Read more »

Sorry Mario, I know you don’t like him, but I do 😛 a lot 😛

Sting was amazing (albeit a bit trashy with the lyrics) but this song is really cool and one of his best imo <3

Yeah…Too ”bad” that it was released too early…. 😛

Lets hope that Eric won’t find a good enough song to compete in the upcoming 2016 Melodifestivalen.. 😛
But im afraid that he will..
And i never said that *Sting * was bad song anyway..
I like his songs but not him as persona..

I used to not dislike him back in 2011 in his *Popular* era…
But afterwards he lost me because i realised what a big j*rk he truly is..

I won’t even bother listening to his song because i just dislike him heavily.. The final of next year’s Vision will take place on the same date with the Vision of 2011 that he participated with *Popular*…{although it was really good song to admit..} Even if he wants to try again & wins in Melodifestivalen representing Sweden in home soil & surprisingly wins the Vision {i have my doubts for that though..} i still won’t care at all about Eric Sadde.. He gets so on my nerves with his attitude.. There are real artists stars that deserve my respect &… Read more »

This would be perfect for Eurovision on home soil, too bad it's released too early 🙁
