It’s Sweden so of course I was going to love it! This song just makes me so happy and for me, that’s what Eurovision is all about!

Chris

Jolly, happy, catchy, this song has it all! In part gospel, “Too Late For Love” is a stirring anthem with a killer chorus and a wicked bass line. Lundvik is a great vocalist too!

PREDICTIONS

Steve

Sweden have been getting a hard time at Eurovision recently so let’s hope something awful doesn’t happen and this qualifies as it deserves that. I’d even go as far as saying top 3 for this one!

Chris

This is gonna do well! Top five for sure and very possibly the winner…!

LYRICS:

“Hey, how you’ve been?
I wonder, do you ever think of me?
Say, am I wrong
To wonder if it could be you and me?

Is it too late for love?
Mhm
Is it too late for love?
I wanna know
Is it too late for love?
I can’t take no more
Is it?

I could be the sun that lights your dark
And maybe I would lit your world with just one spark
I could make it burn for you and me
If I could be there
I would be there
Hear me
I could be the sun that lights your dark
(Oh, is it too late for love?)
(Is it too late for love?)
Hear me
I could make it burn for you and me

Days came and went
But nothing ever really felt the same
But you left a space
Where everything reminds me of your face

Is it too late for love?
Mhm
Is it too late for love?
I wanna know

I could be the sun that lights your dark
And maybe I would lit your world with just one spark
I could make it burn for you and me
If I could be there
I would be there
Hear me
I could be the sun that lights your dark
(Oh, is it too late for love?)
(Is it too late for love?)
Hear me
I could make it burn for you and me
(Oh, is it too late for love?)
(Is it too late for love?)

We could be a storm that rages on
And maybe we would own the ocean carry on

I could be the sun that lights your dark
And maybe I would lit your world with just one spark
I could make it burn for you and me
If I could be there
I would be there
Hear me
I could be the sun that lights your dark
(Oh, is it too late for love?)
Is it too late for love? (Is it too late for love?)
It isn’t is too late for love?
Is it?”

Written by Christopher Smith

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
