I can fly, be invincible

God, I love Sandra Oxenryd. I was all set to like Kasia Nova's "The Devil" more as a song than I liked Sandra's "Superhero" (as I mentioned earlier this year, she's competing to represent Poland at Eurovision), even if expecting Sandra's performance to be better and therefore a better choice, but then I saw the video for "Superhero"...



...and suddenly, not only did I love her even more, I loved the song more, too (though we'll see if it's picked up enough steam to become my favorite). Talk about camp--she's too adorable. Can we please get another album from her after this?

If it's streamed on the Internet (and not conflicting with Melodifestivalen), I am definitely watching Piosenka dla Europy this year.

While I'm at it, here's Kasia Nova's "The Devil."



The other buzzed-about (in fan circles) danceable pop track from Poland is Man Meadow's (also from Sweden, like Sandra) "Viva La Musica."

I like all three, though since my fitness training business is called AAARRGH!! Superhero Training, I guess you can figure out who I'm partial to. But if any of these three break through and represent Poland, I may be rooting for the Polish entry in ESC for the first time...

There must be something wrong with me. I don't like this stuff any more. It's just too cheap and cheesy. :(

Me too! I'm not quite as sold on Man Meadow, but I'd support any of them if they were the entry.

No, I was exactly like that about the Sandra song at first, too! So I totally get (well, maybe that's an overstatement, but I get) what you're feeling about it. I don't know why, but my opinion on it has somehow changed.

I dont know if you know but eurovision.tv are streaming all national finals this year.

I love superhero and think it would've won 2000/2001. Poland has got one of the better selections this year. They usually have a few good ones though (that never get through) I really liked Regroup from last year, for a ballad I really like Margo.

I had no idea! I watched one national final there--might have been Estonia--but I didn't know they were streaming all the national finals! That's great--thanks for the heads-up!

They really do have a good one this year! I'll have to check out that Regroup song--I missed it last year.
