Melodifestivalen 2011: The Gold Box arrives!

Melodifestivalen 2011 gold box

Melodifestivalen 2011 - The Gold Box! Yeah baby!

Finally! It arrived today. There goes $100 I’ll never see again! But it is absolutely beautiful to behold!

The mega-expensive gold box released for Melodifestivalen 2011. It’s called “10 År På Turne” (10 Years on Tour). I can get rid of those crappy mp3 versions of the 32 songs on my computer and replace them with pristine CD versions! Plus the Gold Box also includes five other CDs of Melodifestivalen highlights from the last ten years. And a rarities disc. Plus a glossy coffee-table sized booklet full of colour pictures and facts.

The Melodifestivalen 2011 CD was released in 3 different versions – the usual double-CD version (which Yoda got), a silver box with 5 CDs and then finally, this ultimate Gold Box version which I just had to have. The whole packaging looks spectacular. And it arrived in one piece and undamaged from Sweden – a rarity in itself.

Truth be told, the contents of the book/booklet are pretty crappy and the photos aren’t that rare or interesting…but who cares? The whole package is a gorgeous triumph of packaging. It’s going right to the pool room!

It’s a bit of a bugger that Windows Media Player can’t find any of the song titles or artists for it – don’t you hate it when you’ve gotta sit in front of the PC and type in 32 song titles and artists. Still, I guess that’s what you get for being a fan of Swedish schlager music!

Right now I’ve got “No-one Else Could” by Sebastian stuck in my head so I’m including it below. And dedicating it to my best friend Yoda cos the lyrics are entirely appropriate.
