It is the final countdown for Melodifestivalen web-jokers on STV site. As each day one more song in the final 10 gets eliminated one of the fore runners in the race to the finish is a singer called Jonas Matsson with 'On my own'
who has a summery pop song that is all about being on your own, and the tune is very much in the vein
of Jason Mraz hit 'I'm Yours' it works rather well. Certainly the web tunes for Melodifestivalen 2011 have turned out to be the best yet. For the first time in Sweden we begin to see how the public web-song concept could work well in Meoldifestivalen 2011. Off course this year's web-joker song
MiSt 'Come & get me now' flopped in its Semi-Final yet had the song not gone thu a series of genre
changes on the way to Mf 2010- it may have done better. For me 'Come and get me now' was never a good dansband tune with 'Highlights' brought in to the mix.
A lesson learnt perhapes, as in the new season of Web jokers most of them are defined in their own genre, mostly of a pop ballad style for 2011.
Stay tuned for the joker results...
