Eurovision Song Contest 2015: Sweden – “Heroes” By Måns Zelmerlöw

Eurovision 2015 is almost upon us and now that all the countries have chosen their singers and song let’s give them the once-over. The Swedish song is called “Heroes” and is performed by Måns Zelmerlöw.

Sweden – the masters of Eurovision. I’d always heard about how brilliant the Melodiefestivalen selection process was but this year I actually watched the final and I was well impressed. They take it so seriously and the UK should really learn from them. It was an awesome show and granted, it was in Swedish and I had no idea what was going on but I still loved it.

Sadly, my favourite Eric Saade didn’t win but let’s watch again anyway…

 

The eventual winner, Måns, has a good, catchy song but I’m not sure that the visuals of the performance didn’t have a lot to do with the reason he won. It’s very Avicci and it is pretty cool so I think it will be at least top five!

Don’t tell the gods I left a mess
I can’t undo what has been done
Let’s run for cover
What if I’m the only hero left
You better fire off your gun
Once and forever
He said go dry your eyes
And live your life like there is no tomorrow, son
And tell the others
To go sing it like a hummingbird
The greatest anthem ever heard:

We are the heroes of our time
But we’re dancing with the demons in our minds…
We are the heroes of our time
Hero-uh-o-o-oes
O-uh-o-o-oh
We’re dancing with the demons in our minds
Hero-uh-o-o-oes O-uh-o-o-oh

The crickets sing a song for you
Don’t say a word, don’t make a sound
It’s life’s creation
I make worms turn into butterflies
Wake up and turn this world around
In appreciation
He said I never left your side
When you were lost I followed right behind
Was your foundation
Now go sing it like a hummingbird
The greatest anthem ever heard:

We are the heroes of our time
Hero-uh-o-o-oes
O-uh-o-o-oh
We’re dancing with the demons in our minds
Hero-uh-o-o-oes O-uh-o-o-oh

(We keep dancing with the demons
You could be a hero)

Go sing it like a hummingbird
The greatest anthem ever heard
Now sing together….

We are the heroes of our time
Hero-uh-o-o-oes
O-uh-o-o-oh
But we’re dancing with the demons in our minds
Hero-uh-o-o-oes O-uh-o-o-oh
We are the heroes of our time
Hero-uh-o-o-oes
O-uh-o-o-oh
But we’re dancing with the demons in our minds
Hero-uh-o-o-oes O-uh-o-o-oh

We are the heroes

 

Good luck Måns!
