Translation follows after the swedish text, please scroll down to english text if you don’t want to read swedish😉

Ett av Sveriges mest säkra vårtecken i mediavärlden är Melodifestivalen. Den dyker upp lika säkert, som maskrosorna i gränsmattorna och är lika svår att undvika helt och hållet även om man försöker😉

Jag slutade följa spektaklet för många år sedan, men funderade för några år sedan över om vi rättvist verkligen kunde beskylla melodifestivalen för en totalt ytlig företeelse. Jag ryckte loss några mycket välkända textrader och titlar ur bidragsfloran, som vi kunnat ta del av i festivalhistorien.

Jag kom fram till att texterna innehöll ett stort mått av allvar!
Tror ni mig inte kan ni se mina teckningar, som följer efter texten.

Håll ut ända till sista bilden. Likt en äkta schlager, slutar även denna historia med lyckliga tongångar😀

One of Sweden’s most secure sign of spring in the media world is the Eurovision Song Contest. It shows up as surely as the dandelions in the border carpets and is equally difficult to avoid completely, even if you try;)

I stopped following the spectacle, many years ago, but thought a few years ago about whether we could really fair to blame the Eurovision Song Contest for a totally superficial phenomenon. I dislodged some very well-known lines of text and titles from contributions flora, which we have been able to take part in the festival history.

I came to the conclusion that the texts contained a large degree of seriousness!
Do you believe me can not you see my drawings that follow the text.

Hold out till the last image. Like a genuine hits, also ends this story with happy noises: D

I’ll try to translate the swedish lyrics below the pictures. It’ s not always easy.
