Scandipop.co.uk has gone and given us fans a treat…….a very special treat…..they have only gone and opened their own radio station online playing all my (ok….and our) favourite songs and artists from those lovely Scandinavian countries!
Scandipop have released their new station on www.we7.com and I know many of my friends have all been listening since they saw it on my facebook page over the last week. Playing lots of Melodifestivalen songs as well as ones from the Norwegian and Danish National selection for Eurovision, they also play songs from the artists of these competitions as well as other artists who have not competed.
The great advantage,well…. many great advantages to this website is that you can “like” and/or “share” any of the songs being played so that they are displayed on any of the other social media that you might use (Facebook, Twitter,Myspace, Google, MSN, Dig, LinkedIn and many more) so that any of your friends or family can see it and pick it up very easy! You can also play requests once you sign in to have your own account.
Another great advantage is once you are logged in and if you are not listening to a particular station, the website will play music that it thinks suits you based on some that you have already listened to and I have to admit, it has hit the target for me a good 95% of the time!
Over the past week, I have been stuck listening to this new station and I cannot get enough, it goes on whenever I am online!
What a great place to hear all you favourites throughout the day AND night! No more boring national or local radio stations!
Now you can listen to all of your favourites and more with the click of your mouse to the link below:
It’s amazing, simply amazing. Popular by Eric Saade mixed with I wanna go by Britney Spears. Huge kudos for making a matching video as well. It may take a second listen as at the first chorus you can’t help saying “Popular” when you shouldn’t, but it is by far the best remix of a Eurovision song that I have ever come accross
It is brought to you by the genius that made Madonna and Ducksauce -popup.
Thanks to Scandipop for the image
Many thanks to ESC Today for uploading this fantastic remix of Ireland’s It’s For You. We’d love to see Niamh performing this live in the Euroclub in Oslo but only once she’s over her sore throat!
They’ve gone and made a ‘candlelight’ version, turning the poppers anthem into a stripped back ballad. Hera has re-recorded the vocals especially, and we love how she lets rip after the almighty key change. Candlelight versions of dance songs have been commonplace ever since DJ Sammy and ‘Heaven’. They’re always a great accompaniment to their parent mix, and it’s very difficult to get them wrong, so long as the original track was great in the first place.
