"When I'm dressed to kill, I know I'm deadly like that"
In the Ace Wilder vs. Sanna Nielsen battle of this year's Melodifestivalen finale, I was a staunch supporter of Sanna, even though I knew Ace had what would become the breakout single of the entire competition. I just didn't think it was right for Eurovision, and more than that, I didn't (and still don't) think it's one of Ace's strongest tracks in general. However, I am so happy that she's found so much success and that it's shining a light on her excellent debut EP, re-released to coincide with the competition. Of the songs on that EP that haven't been released as singles yet, I really want to spotlight Deadly. It's just good old fashioned 80's pop/synth/rock, very reminiscent of the kinds of songs I was able to post daily when this blog was first launched. This is the road that I hope she continues to go down. She's a great pop star, and could easily find global success.
