The 2009-50: No. 13 - So why do you need to go when we've just begun?

"Stay The Night" - Alcazar.

The minute the latest line-up of Alcazar walked on stage in their MF heat, they owned it in a way that no-one else did that night. I'm so glad they made it to Globen without having to go through Andra Chansen this time. They may never represent Sweden at Eurovision - their loss, and ours - and this may not be their best ever MF effort ("Not A Sinner Nor A Saint" is, IMHO) but this was just an absolute celebration which was just further proof of their ability to make fantastic disco-tastic pop music.

And yes, this was another one of those songs which soundtracked my Gothenburg weekend in April (thanks Rix FM!). They followed it with the "Disco Defenders" album, which was good but not great, although their celebratory disco-pop will always be welcome in my world.
The 2009-50 will return on Tuesday, only 12 songs to go between then and next Sunday, when my no.1 song will be revealed. As I previously said, it shouldn't be too much of a surprise...!
