When Sweden do things well…

… they really really do do them well.

It’s 1980, they put on a massive Melodifestivalen with at least 7 winners in it* and even a song hankering back to the previous decade!

The one we have chosen is Janne Persson whose song was clearly the best in the minds of everyone that watched MF 1980 – except the juries. For those of you that are of the millennial generation, things to look out for in this song are an orchestra, lyrics about something called “a phone”, the operator” and waiting for a woman in a hotel on a date NOT facilitated by Tinder/Grindr.

It’s a brave old world.

(* actual number of winners = 1)
