The 2009-50: No.10 - The picture is drawn, you're not even on because you're gone


"Baby Goodbye" - E.M.D.

Put an irresistibly catchy pop song together with staging that recalls Sam Sparro’s "Black and Gold" video and that was enough for me. Somewhere along the way, E.M.D. became a believable boyband (although Danny is still a great solo pop star) and this was their first, but hopefully not last, (self-penned) Melodifestivalen entry. At least they got as far as Globen, and beyond that, this song has enjoyed a very active post-MF life at EuropeCrazy HQ. (Follow-up single "Youngblood" was pretty good too and narrowly missed out on a place in my chart).

I'm a fan of EMD, but have to say I really don't like this song. There's something about it that I can't put my finger on that just bugs me.

Excited to see what your top 5 has in store!

Top 5: I think the best description would be "predictable" but the fact remains that my chart has to be an honest and accurate reflection of my most favourite songs of the year so I'm not just picking artists/songs for the sake of including them, but because they were actually my favourite songs.

That said, I think you can guess who'll be top :))))))
