Singer for MP’s Eurovision song selected

Written by roxeteer on December 2, 2004 to .

HELSINKI - Mats “MP” Persson, the guitarist of Gyllene Tider and a music producer, has once again managed to get one of his songs into the Finnish leg of the Eurovision song contest, as reported before. The song is written together with a Finnish songwriter, Patrick Linman, just like the song the year before.

  This year’s song, titled “Everything But Still Nothing,” will be performed by 23-year old Christian Forss. Forss became popular as a result of having been on TV’s “Idol” contest, in which he came in fourth.

  In the same contest, another male contestant, Antti Tuisku, performed “Spending My Time” which was later released on a CD. Forss rendered Bon Jovi’s “Living On A Prayer.”

Why doesn’t he write songs for GT anymore?

Very good! good luck!

That guy looks 10 years old, not 23!! Rich ;-)

@Zargo: because there isn’t anything to write for Gyllene Tider. :)

@Kiwein1 - ok, rephrase that to ’why didn’t he contribute much after the first album?’

Just one or two every now and then would make a change... Smastad is the only one of his springing to mind that’s been written ’recently.’

Or he should write again with Per for Roxette like LTYH, SOAD, SMT, DYGE, PD, QOR, Lies !!!

Sorry, mixed things up..

*edit* And I was already wondering if I had missed something... ;-)

BTW, Per’s too afraid of losing, so he won’t be writing a song for Melodifestivalen... would have been funny if they had both made it to the Eurovision Song Contest!


And I hoped for the purely GYLLENE Eurovision.

By the way, what does it mean DYGE?

Do you get excited

Sometimes. Thanks for asking Judith ;)

Thankx Judith:)

hm.. thanks for asking? asking what? *confused*
