How about a nice big cup of BORING BALLAD?

Jessica's Barf-inducing dross

“Barfing (known medically as emesis and informally as throwing up and a number of other terms) is the forceful expulsion of the contents of one’s stomach through the mouth and sometimes the nose. Barfing may result from many causes, ranging from gastritis or poisoning to brain tumors, or elevated intracranial pressure. The feeling that one is about to barf is called nausea, which usually precedes, but does not always lead to, barfing. Antiemetics are sometimes necessary to suppress nausea and barfing, and, in severe cases where dehydration develops, intravenous fluid may need to be administered to replace fluid volume.”

The “headlines” should read: Melodifestivalen 2010: Alcazar was robbed!

Jessica Andersson’s barf-inducing “I Did For Love” is through the “Second Chance” final to the big-kahuna Final at Globen. Meanwhile, Alcazar’s amazing, pop classic “Headlines” is nowheresville. Not Happy Jan!

Did the Swedes have to vote in another f****** boring ballad? Just what Eurovision needs – another dull, lifeless piece of ballad-dross performed with all the gusto of a snail on valium. Jessica, unlike Alcazar, I definitely do not have your number on my underwear.

Jessica, the next time you feel like “doing it all for love” can you please go and do it in the privacy of your own bathroom and leave the rest of us out of it?

Meanwhile, someone has put up the studio version of “Headlines” on Youtube. It’s stunning. I can’t wait for my Melodifestivalen 2010 CD to arrive (hopefully in a week’s time – fingers crossed!)

As for Jessica – I’m sure there’s a lift needing muzak that could make best use of your song.

Go Alcazar! You woz robbed!



  1. This is a very good song (alcazar), while i haven’t heard Jessica’s song, something tells me i don’t want to.

    • It depends on whether you’re into bland ballads or not – a lot of people are – but Jessica’s song is a bridge too far for me. It lacks real passion and emotion. You can hear it here:

  2. Alcazar was robbed. Orsa Spellman was robbed also. Honestly, this was such an uninspiring song, sung in such a mediocre way. And I HATED the way Mans said to the Orsa Spellman bloke, the middle aged fat bloke, that he didn’t have the sex appeal of Jessica. Groan. Bad choice Sweden!
