2008-50: No. 35 - Can someone help this foolish heart?

"Who Do You Think You're Foolin'?" - Rongedal.

First (but not last) appearance in my countdown for the Swedish singing twins Magnus and Henrik Rongedal, who stepped out of the backing vocalist shadows to become stars in their own right at Melodifestivalen. Their debut album was a revelation - full of strong pop songs with singalong hooks.

And this was one of them: catchy, uptempo, driven, uplifting falsetto-pop, and like their other entry later in my chart it may be just a little too influenced by Mika/Scissor Sisters - but I can think of worse things to be influenced by. :)
