Ode to Måns Zelmerlöw, again and again

So here it is. I’m going back to, the well, greatest singer / dancer / person ever known to mankind. Also known as Sweden’s sexiest man, who’s dating Marie Serenholt (former A*Teen gone solo, I know!) Well since his popularity in my mind goes beyond the annoying teeny-boppers that he attracts, as I stated nearly one year ago. I will bear this man’s children. It’s a compliment, not a creepy stalker-ish line. How many guys do you know that would find a way to bare a child, that isn’t from the film Junior?

Anywas, back to the star of the day… Måns Zelmerlöw becasue well, it’s justified. His recent showing in Melodifestialen has just left mewithout words, and even in tears. The anthem, Hope & Glory is not only a master-piece, but it’s an inspirational upbeat song that left me in tears, quite literally. Here is a breakdown of the good, the bad, and the ugly. I’m taking an objectified approach to understand and presenting this song, which pics of course!


Good aspects

— It’s Måns Zelmerlöw
— He’s heinously attractive, basically a walking wet dream
— He can sing
— He can dance
— He can basically do anything
— Song writen by Frederik Kempe & Henrik Wikström (my heroes)
— Upbeat song
— Schlager song
— Melodifestivalen Anthem
— Inspiring message and thoughts
— Amazing coreography
— Lots of dancers and things to look at
— He tolerates having a huge gay following

Bad aspects
— The outfit makes me suspicious and sketched out
— The shoes make me cringe, especially with a tight bottom pant
— The dancers are kind of whorish, and half-nude
— The ending lacks umph with the dancers (only a pose)

As we can so clearly see, the positives outnumber the negatives. I think the only obection that I had to the song performance was the costume choice and the dancers. I understand that Måns is a straight male, of my age, but that doesn’t mean that he has to lure the basically already homosexual population to him with women? I think the song would even be better with some male dancers. I have yet to see Måns with such, apart from a mix, and I think that the result would be a pleasant surprise! On to the pics!

So when we start, it’s all dark and gloomy, but then all of a sudden some blasts of bass kick in and we’ve got a song here, with our lil man in the middle of the stage.

And then he’s serenading us with the second verse, telling us that we could be the one…

But then, what happens? We have an army of skanks behind us in little clothing, dancing and pretending to be boxers!

And then the triumphant end. Måns’ career is amazing, and it can go even farther if he goes a little bit further than just “accepting” his gay following. He must embrace them! He must go over the edge and make them know that he loves them and that the relationship is pure and safe! In addition to this, we all secretly want him to just literally embrace some bögar and see the light, and leave Marie. It would be a fairy-tale come true… quite literally

And since I love my readers so much here are the lyrics that I extracted, enjoy!

Måns Zelmerlöw – Hope & Glory
Musiken: Frederik Kempe & Henrik Wikström
Text: Frederik Kempe & Måns Zelmerlöw

It’s gonna be the one
It’s gonna be the one, yeah!

I’ll tell you, lover oh lover it feels so strong
It doesn’t matter if life wants to prove us wrong
We’re gonna make it through
We’re gonna make it through

I tell you I’ve been a soldier since childhood days
i’ve fought a battle for my life in many ways
I’m gonna fight for you
Yeah I’m gonna fight for you: Don’t stop!

I’m still standing for hope and glory
I’ll be fighting for my love story
I’m still standing for hope and glory now
All the battles are lost, and the battles are won
Cause we’ll be the one, cause we’ll be the one
Oh, I’m still standing for hope and glory now
It’s gonna be the one

(Yeah, It’s gonna be the one yeah)

Now listen, lover oh lover, our heart can break
You never know how much trouble our heart can take
I’m gonna be right there
Yeah I’m gonna be right there: Don’t stop

I’m still standing for hope and glory
I’ll be fighting for my love story
I’m still standing for hope and glory now
All the battles are lost, and the battles are won
Cause we’ll be the one, cause we’ll be the one
Oh, I’m still standing for hope and glory now
It’s gonna be the one

It’s gonna be the one
It’s gonna be the one

Don’t stop…

I’m still standing for hope and glory
I’ll be fighting for my love story
I’m still standing for hope and glory now
All the battles are lost, and the battles are won
Cause we’ll be the one, cause we’ll be the one
I’m still standing for hope and glory, oh

It’s gonna be the one!
It’s gonna be the one!

Okej let me go daydream a bit… :wave:
