Melodifestivalen 2011: first four songs and artists known

As revealed at Aftonbladet this morning:

Pernilla Andersson - ”Desperados”
Text och musik: Pernilla Andersson.

Linda Bengtzing - ”E de fel på mig”
Text och musik: Pontus Assarsson, Thomas G:son, Jörgen Ringqvist.

Lasse Stefanz - ”En blick och nåt händer”
Text och musik: Alexander Bard, Ola Håkansson, Tim Norell.

Swingfly - ”Me and my drum”
Text och musik: Teron Beal, Patrik Magnusson, Johan Ramström.

So....Linda's back, and there's no doubt that with a certain Mr G:son among the songwriters that it's going to be a big old schlager tune.

I don't know anything about Pernilla Andersson so I'll need to check her out.

Swingfly - if it's as catchy as "Singing That Melody" then it might do well.

The combination of top dansband Lasse Stefanz with the fantastic songwriting trio of Bard/Håkansson/Norell is a very weird one, but I can't wait to hear it because of the songwriters. After all, they wrote "En Dag" - one of the best Swedish entries ever - and when you think of Secret Service, Army of Lovers,'s a very exciting prospect.
