Melodifestivalen: The Golden Years (2006-2010) Rate: Vi har ett resultat!

Which is the best MF year?

POST 1: THE INTRODUCTION

It’s finally time! Inspired by conversations had in the Melodifestivalen 2023 thread about how downhill MF has gone and some differences of opinion when the golden years were, I thought it would be fun to do a rate. My plan is to follow this up with the other half of the golden years 2011-2015 if we have enough fun in this one.

But first, a quick intro. Melodifestivalen is Sweden’s Eurovision entry selection process, but is obviously much bigger than that, with viewing figures among the Swedish population ridiculously high, and its following among the Eurovision fandom also arguably the strongest.

Of this era, I was in Stockholm for the final of three of the years (2008, 2009, 2010), and it definitely got me hooked.

With 32 entries from each year, as the Christer Bjorkman of this rate I’ve made the decision to eliminate almost all acts without a credited female artist (drag queens being the exception). This will bring the number of entries down considerably.

There are 90 entries with a credited female artist or drag queen.

However we are not misandrists here, and recognise that some (admittedly few) men can bring a bop. SO before the full rate begins, we had in true Mello style a ‘Mandra Chansen’ - where everyone could vote for the male-only entries they would like to see included. The highest 10 rated entries have been added to the main list to make a nice round 100.

Additionally, for any absolute Melloheads who would like, there is a list with every single entry. If you’d *like* to rank absolutely all of them, you can - and if we get enough participants who do so, I’ll also include the full overall rankings in the stats.

Normal rate rules apply: Please rank every song from 1-10, with one 0 and one 11 allowed per voter. Commentary is encouraged for as many entries as you would like! I’ll accept any kind of decimals you fancy.

Please PM me your votes, if you can a Google Sheet or similar would be excellent and save me some hassle, but I’ll take them by carrier pigeon if it means you join us!

VOTING DEADLINE: SEPTEMBER 30th

Since we've had 5 voters for Mandra Chansen, here's some tea

Screenshot-2023-07-19-at-3-02-30-PM.png

- 17 different songs have received points
- The qualifiers per year split is 4 / 3 / 2 / 1 / 0
- Yes, one year has no qualifiers - and barely any points at all
- One 12 points could take a song from nul points to QF
- These awful puns and amateur visuals will probably continue for the whole rate
