Samir & Viktor‘s Melodifestivalen ode to skinny dipping “Bada nakna” was a Euroclub hit, and now the duo is back with their summer anthem “Fick feeling” (Got the feeling). But some fans have noted a strong similarity between “Fick feeling” and another song.

“Fick feeling” continues the duo’s dance-pop sound that’s served them well from early hit “Success” through to their Melfest hit “Bada nakna”.

The lyrics celebrate the pleasures of summer, from lying on the beach listening to music (which, they note, sounds better with a saxophone), to getting an impulsive tattoo, to skipping work to attend a festival.

The chorus is simple: “Jag fick feeling/Du fick feeling/Vi fick feeling/Ingenting kan stoppa oss” – “I got the feeling/You got the feeling/We got the feeling/Nothing can stop us”.

But things run into trouble with the instrumental break. Fans have noted it bears a close similarity to the song “Wolf” by the Norwegian production duo Tungevaag & Raaban, released earlier this year.

“Wolf” — which charted at No.10 in Norway, No.2 in Finland and No.86 in Sweden — contains an instrumental break with a very similar melody to the one used in “Fick feeling”. The section can be heard at 1:03 in “Wolf” and 1:11 in “Fick feeling”.

Fans have noticed the similarity and are unsure what to make of it, not knowing whether it was a deliberate copy or an accidental soundalike situation.

@Ewan: Building careers on something you’re not good at … it not the type of life I should be encouraging … I understand how entertaining they may be but … chewing bubble gums only lasts a few minutes then … puff … nobody cares about you anymore … much less when you’re chewing the same damn flavour all over again … if you get where I’m going with this.

@Adam: What you’ve mentioned is all correct … and sadly concerning … but what saddens me the most is that nobody seems to care or be bothered … where we’re heading with people like these guys is very upsetting and musically disturbing. But since nobody cares that Britney Spears calls herself a singer unable to properly sing anything live … this can only do down the gutter and still delight everybody. By the way … the purpose here is not to applaude all the good and crap showing by as if we’re one happy family… but to be free to… Read more »

Charles if wiwibloggs only wrote exclusively about eurovision/eurovision pre-selection artists with actual talent, the number of articles would be very low. There are plenty of other eurovision online sources for you to read if you don’t like it.

Most songs these days sound exactly the same anyways, I dont think Samir&Viktor should be too worried lol

@Robyn Gallagher: With all due respect for whatever reason people like these 2 twats … they could be in every single MF final for the next twenty years singing the same crap with different lyrics … they still have no talent … they are not even proper singers … they just want that moment of fame and attention like a kid chewing bubblegum … until those 15 mins fade away …

I like their new summer hit. It is bit similar as “Wolf”, but Samir & Viktor took it to the next level and added their energy to that. Sommar, nu går vi!

The whole alleged copy pasting btw songs is not what baffles me in this whole rubbish … I mean … it has become an accepted thing in music the same way everybody has accepted Britney’s lip sync iconic status .. so … What honestly baffles me is … why the hell are we still giving attention to 2 guys who are nothing else but fame hunters and whose talent has always been and shall remain questionable … reality TV stars and Youtubers turned into singers for no reason? Especially with music that is pure recycling of some other crap out… Read more »
