Melodifestivalen 2016

Swingfly feat. Helena Gutarra – You Carved Your Name

23 Feb , 2016   Video

Swingfly är en väletablerad rappare som 2011 gjorde debut i Melodifestivalen. Låten ”Me and My Drum” tog sig direkt till final och slutade på en femte plats. Denna gång backas Swingfly upp av Helena Gutarra som vi bland annat sett i tv-programmet The Voice och i rockbandet La Puma.

– Man behöver rätt låt för att komma tillbaka, och vi hade inte det. Jag och Helena är som brevbärare som har något att leverera och det är dags nu. Många kommer tillbaka år efter år, men jag vill inte komma sist året efter att jag kom femma. Nu skulle det kännas mer okej, säger Swingfly.

”You Carved Your Name” är en låt skriven och producerad av Jocke Åhlund, även känd från Teddybears STHLM och Andreas Kleerup som bland annat skrivit världshiten ”With Every Heartbeat” med Robyn. Åhlund debuterar i Melodifestivalen medan Kleerup skrev låten ”Aiayeh”, som Simone Moreno tävlade med 2006.

Texten: You Carved Your Name

You’re gonna need a d o c
gonna bring you to your knees

Put the needle to the record
cause it’s bigger than it seems

And when the summer comes along
with another funky song
you’re singing oh my my like a mama Ubangi

Well the rockers and the Teds
yeah the rockers and the Teds
got some greens in my jeans
got a pocket full of trees

Got some money in my pocket
put my finger in the socket
got a head full of dreams
gonna take off like a rocket

You carved your name across my heart
yeah you had me stuck from the start

You carved your name across my heart
yeah you had me stuck from the start

Hey

Pick the cherry from the top
steal the honey from the bees
gonna spread it through the city like some tropical disease

Take a look inside my head
baby tell me what you see

I’m singing ohh my my to the beat of the King Kong

Well the rockers and the Teds
yeah the rockers and the Teds
got some greens in my jeans
got a pocket full of trees

Got some money in my pocket
put my finger in the socket
got a head full of dreams
gonna take off like a rocket

Got some money in my pocket
put my finger in the socket
got a head full of dreams
gonna take off like a rocket

You carved your name across my heart
yeah you had me stuck from the start

You carved your name across my heart
yeah you had me stuck from the start

Hey

You had me stuck right from the start
You know we never gonna part
You carved your name across my heart

You put my head up in the stars
You know we never gonna part
You carved your name across my heart

You carved your name across my heart
yeah you had me stuck from the start

You carved your name across my heart
yeah you had me stuck from the start

You carved your name across my heart
yeah you had me stuck from the start
