THIS IS NOT A DRILL!
ROBYN HAS RELEASED HER FIRST NEW SOLO MUSIC IN EIGHT YEARS!
Oh, I’m sorry. Were you asking something?
Yes, that’s right. I am a Eurovision blog.
And yes, that’s right. Robyn has never appeared in Eurovision, although if she did, she would blow away the competition and win the whole thing by a gajillion points. Her domination would be so complete that other contestants would abandon their songs just to join her on stage to perform her song yet another time. It would essentially be a final of Robyn doing duets of the same song with international contestants 30 times in a row and the public absolutely eating it up. Note to Jan Ola Sand – we can make this happen as a separate festival, right?
But while Robyn has never played Eurovision, she HAS written a song that placed 4th in 1997’s Melodifestivalen, Du gör mig hel igen:
Yeah. I know. It’s the whitest slow jam ever. Remember, this was before peak Robyn. And it still managed to revitalise the career of Cajsalisa.
But because of this clause, it means that I’m free to cover Robyn’s new single.
And unfortunately, about all I can say is:
It’s new Robyn!
Is it good? Of course it’s good. It’s Robyn. It sounds fresh and retro and epic and danceable and it pulls at your emotions and I’m going to be curling up in a fetal position and rolling around on the floor with glee about this. I mean, I’m on a train now, which means the floor is incredibly gross and not something I’d want to touch with my bare skin, but the sentiment stands.
