Now back over to Sweden and we celebrate two queens of Swedish pop music with one song. Everyone will have heard of this anthem but this particular version really does utilise the song in all its glory making sure the chorus is more like a command rather than a mere declaration. Naturally this was the theme tune of Stockholm Pride in 2001 where Jonas shared the stage with a newly reformed Army Of Lovers.
Jonas is of course Mister Gay Sweden from a few years back and we think hes rather tasty. We love the way his Swedish accent literally perfumes the 'sparkle/spangle' expresion. This cover also includes the striking vocals of the sublime Shirley Clamp!
As for Jonas hes is now in a band that looks to be the new Alcazar(pre-Magnus) called Backstage. They have a new record out called Once A In A Life Time. But thats all according to his website which is all in Swedish and try as we might, when we read Swedish we feel like we've had too much brandy.
Which is a good thing. Enjoy Jonas debut single!
