Swedish Charts Update: Melodifestivalen Fever!!

After a few quite stagnant weeks in the Sverige Topplistan singles chart, Amanda Jenssen’s "Do You Love Me" has finally been knocked off the top spot. Guess what’s no.1? None other than "Hero" by Charlotte Perrelli, with Sanna Nielsen’s "Empty Room" at no. 2. Is this an omen for Saturday night perhaps?

Yes, Melodifestivalen fever has hit the Topplistan now that the songs are available to buy. Other MF acts in the top 40 chart this week: E-Type and The Poodles (no.3), Velvet (no.9), Linda Bengtzing (no.10), Fronda (no.11), Sibel (no.12), Nordman (no.13), BWO (what, only no.16?), Andra Generationen (no.18), Johnson & Häggkvist (no.25), Patrik Isaksson & Bandet (no.29), Suzzie Tapper (no.33), Calaisa (no.35), Frida & Headline (no.39). Not much room for anything else eh!!

Next week I’ll probably write about some of the non-MF stuff in the chart, there are a few new songs around and I need to check them out.
