Darin - Det Gör Ont  

This is Swedish pop prince Darin Zanyar's cover of the legendary Lena Philipsson's 2004 Eurovision entry, Det Gör Ont (or It Hurts in it's English form). According to my Swedish pop expert, this was recorded for a TV show earlier this year, celebrating 50 years of Melodifestivalen, the fantastic Swedish song contest. Apart from a male voice, Darin also brings a new, slightly rocky sound to the song, using a Michael Jackson sample, although it rather deceptively begins as a ballad.
