The 2010-50 - No.28: Kom kom kom medan som-som-sommaren ännu hänger sig kvar

"Kom" - Timoteij.

The regulation folk-number at Melodifestivalen can sometimes leave me cold (Sarek), lukewarm (Kalle Moraeus) or mildly enthusiastic (Nordman's witch-burning anthem) but this year it was very agreeable and catchy. Maybe in another time this might even have gone on to win MF and got a decent result at Eurovision, but whatever the case it was so much better than this year's winner.

"Kom" became a firm favourite at EuropeCrazy HQ. Tonight I had to break the news very gently to faithful travelling companion that Timoteij weren't going to be in Melodifestivalen 2011. He didn't take it too well ....!

But I'm sure he will be cheered up by this video clip of the girls performing the song on this year's "Sommarkrysset" at Gröna Lund:

I'm still under impression of their sensation. When they've beaten main contest's favorite with their sweet little schlageristic bomb. It was shock for everyone but after the biggest lack of hits on Melodifestivalen ever it was a pleasant shock, I was really touched.
