The EuropeCrazy Holiday Hit List: Spring 2007

And now we have reached the end of our series .... well at least until the next holiday.

Seems no time from when we were in Stockholm. To be in Stockholm in post-Melodifestivalen season meant that you were only ever minutes away from one of this year's MF hits.

"Cara Mia" - Mans Zelmerlow: he may not have won, but this got more airplay than anything else that week.
"Live Forever" - Magnus Carlsson: it still remains a mystery to me why this never made the final.
"The Worrying Kind" - The Ark: and I can't understand why this flopped in Helsinki either!
"I Remember Love" - Sarah Dawn Finer: one of the artists catapulted from nowhere to household names by this year's MF, and now she will be appearing in the "Jekyll and Hyde" stage musical.
"Trying To Recall" - Marie Lindberg: the singing schoolteacher who was one of the year's most unassuming and unlikely popstars.
"A Little Bit Of Love" - Andreas Johnson: still a great singalong tune.
And some non-MF songs too!
"Cupid's Chokehold" - Gym Class Heroes: clever sampling which brings out the Supertramp fan in all of us.
"Because of You" - Ne-Yo: one of my favourite chart hits of the year which I got into after hearing it so much on Swedish radio.
"What Goes Around" - Justin Timberlake: the Swedes just can't get enough Justin.
"7Milakliv" - Martin Stenmarck: it might be an oldie now, but it still got enough airplay to make this list.

During the coming week, I'll be compiling my holiday hit list for Summer 2007 in Berlin... watch this space.
