I have been discovering some Nordic Euroboypop recently. And I’ve found that if you can put aside a little thing like not singing in the English language then you will find that there is some fantastic music out there.

Over the map a bit to Russia. A couple of years ago, Dima Bilan represented Russia at the Eurovision Song Contest. Apart from looking great in a white singlet, he could sing quite well and came second with his song “Never Let You Go”. A search of YouTube shows that he has released quite a lot of music, mainly in Russian. Here’s one of my favourites:
And his classic Eurovision performance (in English):
I’ll finish off with another Russian, the sexy Sergey Lazarev, with his sensational cover of “Shattered Dreams” (originally recorded by Johnny Hates Jazz in the 80s). Don’t worry this one’s in English and was even released in the UK as a physical single.
I guess you can tell that I’m in a Euroboypop mood and obviously gearing up for the Eurovision Song Contest.
