Melodifestivalen 2016 has come and gone, but we are still looping many of this year’s competing songs. So much so that back on June 18 we launched a poll asking you guys which songs you are still listening to. After counting 5,235 votes, we can now reveal that Oscar Zia has slayed the pack with his song “Human”.

Oscar, who narrowly won the jury vote at Melodifestivalen 2016, came out on top with 542 votes, or around 10.35%. His dark and brooding number, which tied in with his personal coming out story, featured some seriously atmospheric staging — and it clearly lingers on the mind of our readers.

Wiktoria and Ace Wilder also managed to secure more than 500 votes each, followed by Lisa Ajax and Robin Bengtsson who round out the Top 5.

Which songs are YOU still listening to? Are you bathing naked with Samir & Viktor? Does SaRaha have you going kizunguzungu? Is Molly Sandén still a part of your Youniverse? Are you remembering not to worry via Ace Wilder? Or does your loyalty lie with Eurovision 2016 participant Frans? Comment below!

“Human” was a nice Eurovision-Style song.
Still, Oscar Zia could not really sing it live.

I voted for “My Heart Wants Me Dead” and “Kizunguzungu”, they are they are the only ones I’m still listening to. I also love “Human” but for some reason I haven’t listened to it since a long time ago…
Anyway, in my opinion these are much better than “If I Were Sorry”.

Human as a song is nothing special (it would have been top 10 thanks to that amazing camera work and juries would overrate it as all power ballads do).
The truth is Swedes play more Bada nakna, Hall om mig hart, Kizungungu or Constellation price.
Good pop always will beat generic power ballads.

I agree! I liked Frans and knew his song will be ranked high at this years ESC, but “Human” had a real chance to come on top. “If I were sorry” is like marmite – you either like it or hate it, but “Human” had this special magnifying feeling. Really really really hope to see Oscar next year.

The winner was better. And better for ESC- “Human” is nice. But ESC don’t need a singer like Oscar Zia.

I’ve never liked Human, it’s way to much drama for 3 minutes.
I love Constellation prize and My heart wants me dead though.
