The most played song by Steve at Talk About Pop Music this week was ‘A Million Years’by Mariette.
This week has definitely been dominated by songs from Melodiefestivalen and although it wasn’t my favourite I really liked Mariette’s song.
Attending the final of Melfest in Stockholm for the first time was a fantastic experience! Sweden love Eurovision!

My favourite was Wiktoria but I didn’t think it would win and think the eventual winner Robin Bengtsson will perform better in the Kyiv.
Loreen’s ‘Statements’ is a brilliant song although it didn’t make it to the final simply because I don’t think it’s very ‘Eurovision’ if that makes sense.
In theory Steps should have been number one this week with their new track ‘Scared Of The Dark’ because as soon as it was released on Friday I played it constantly. However, as I was listening using Spotify offline the play counts didn’t register (you need to fix that Spotify) but never mind – here’s to a great comeback from the awesome Steps!

I’d like to say a big thank you to Last.fm – without their service over the past ten years none of these stats would be possible each week!
I’m Steve and live in a village called Alford (home of Emeli Sande & birthplace of the Aberdeen Angus cow) in Aberdeenshire, Scotland.
I currently work in the IT industry (yawn)
I just want to share my ideas, findings and general reflections with whoever wants to listen.
