Melodifestivalen 2005 – Interval

So I was looking around at some youtube things, and I happend to come across the interval act for Melodifestivalen 2005 by After Dark. I don’t really know many words to come up with about this, other than it’s absolutely amazingly funny!

It made me laugh on the floor for a few minutes, especially the part with the 3 guys and the push-pins in their bums. Now who would normally think of that? I couldn’t help but laugh at the Charlotte Nilsson impersonater, but really they are are funny. So much I miss when I’m trapped in a boring country here and have no cable.

I can’t help but wonder who those three men were though. Probably some struggling artists that needed some air time and weren’t afraid of being embarrassed.. I do however want to know one of the songs that ‘Lena’ was singing, not the Det Gör Ont, but the other one.. It will drive me insane until I find out.

In the meantime I will amuse myself with SchlaggerParty!


  1. So why don’t you just ask your mentor, i.e me? 🙂

    The first Lena song is “Kärleken är evig”, her first MF-entry back in 1986, with new lyrics about how Carola makes Lena miserable by always copying everything she ever does.

    The three guys are Herreys, ESC winners for Sweden back in 1984.

    And the entire joke throughout the entire number is that “Det gör ont” apparently is the original lyrics of ALL Swedish eurosongs, and only Lena was too lazy not to have them replaced. And to prove their point, they show the “original” versions of “Fångad av en stormvind”, “Tusen och en natt”, “Diggi-Loo Diggi-Ley” and “Waterloo”. Most entertaining… 🙂

    1. Yes, the point of me being so obvious was I knew you would read it and I would be able to ask you 😉 hehehe

      Of course I know what they are talking about and such, just I didn’t know who some of them were. Herreys *lol* Yum yum, for people back in 1984 they are lookin’ pretty young!

      And yes, very entertaining :DD

  2. Ehm, sorry to spoil your illusion… After Dark is a big group, and all the people in this interval are members of After Dark. It is a number from their “La dolce vita”-show, and these three guys are just impersonators, not the real Herreys. And there is no real Lena, no real Carola, no real Charlotte and – the shock! – no real Abba. All is After Dark…

    1. Of course I knew they were all impersonators, just I didn’t know that AfterDark was a large group 😛 I knew they weren’t real or anything, but the voices are ;D I could recognize Charlotte sooo easily.

      Awww, but I wanted to know who the three guys were! Döh!
