The 2010-50 - No.9: Natalie keeps coming back for more and she’s out of control

"Unstoppable (the return of Natalie)" - Ola.

The general opinion seemed to be that this year's Melodifestivalen fell short of many people's expectations. The final result in Globen certainly did, but let's not go into that shall we????

Anyway I'd like to focus on an unforgettable opening night of the MF festivities in Örnsköldsvik, and the other qualifier that evening - a catchy, piano-driven pop song which marked the return of Ola Svensson to the competition a couple of years after "Love In Stereo", which I was also liked a lot. "Unstoppable" might have cashed in on the reference to his previous hit "Natalie", but who cares? He's a very good pop star, and it worked.

Initially I expected from Ola something anthemic in "Love In Stereo" way so underestimate Unstopppable initially but in Final it was in my list for the win, one of songs that made this year at Melodifestivalen - you listen and you're there in February of 2010 :)

Yes it's another one of those songs which takes me back to that wonderful first heat of MF in Örnsköldsvik.
