How we love the Mylo & Sharooz Mix of Robyn’s “Don’t Fucking Tell Me What to Do,” lifted from Body Talk PT.1. Recently bowed on Spotify, this song is a real gem. We’re still waiting for Mylo to record new hits. The 2005 hit “In My Arms,” that magically mashed up Kim Carnes “Bette Davis Eyes,” and Boy Meets Girl’s “Waiting for a Star to Fall” is a surefire classic.

Edward Maya returns to the No.1 spot on the Swedish singles chart with “Stereo Love,” while last week’s chart-topper – Rebound’s “Hurricane” – falls 1-8. Lady Gaga and Beyoncé rebound 5-2 with “Telephone,” with the help of Gaga’s Stockholm visit last week. Her “Alejandro” takes a 39-27 climb in its third week.
The highest new-comer comes from Eminem, whose “Not Afraid” immediately reached the top spot on the Hot 100 this week. This is a rare feet in the US, where only 15 other acts managed this through history.
The only other new-comers this week come from Joshua Rain’s “I’d Rather Be with You” and Robyn’s “Dancehall Queen.” Stromae’s “Alors on danse,” previously mentioned on this blog cracks the top twenty, moving 45-19.
Timoteij’s Längtan was knocked off the top spot after a sole week as AC/DC is the biggest seller this week with Iron Man 2. Lady Gaga’s The Fame Monster moves 8-3. Anna von Hauswolff’s Singing from the Grave is the highest new-comer at No.5, besting Adam Lambert’s For Your Entertainment at No.8. Lambert earns the No.8 position on the singles chart as well with “Whataya Want from Me.”
The Swedish Grammy Awards are always up for discussion. When the nominees were announced earlier this month, it was also clear that it will not be broadcasted on TV. This means, that we won’t see any scandalous behavior live – even though any incidents will be reported by the tabloids.
Back in 1993, the indie pop group Popsicle wished for the dance orchestra act Arvingarna to die in a bus crash. This year, producer Kleerup left the awards ceremony halfway through despite picking up three awards for his eponymous debut album including the UK No.1 “With Every Heartbeat,” featuring Robyn.
This year, Amanda Jenssen and Thåström earned most nominations. Amanda Jenssen broke through in Idol 2007, where she ended up as the runner-up behind Marie Picasso. Her album Happyland has so far one hit single – the title track. A Grammy Award is a surefire way of extending the length of an album’s life. The set follows her 2008 debut Killing My Darlings, including hits such as “Do You Love Me” and “Amarula Tree.”
The Grammy Awards premiered in 1969 and is arranged by the industry body Ifpi. Awards are based on the general public votes as well as a professional jury. Approximately 30,000 people have voted this year. The ceremony will be held on Jan.15, 2010.
