Music Pastime: Salem Al Fakir's Keep On Walking

I almost missed the entire season of Melodifestivalen (The Music Festival) 2010 of Sweden due to my Philippine vacation. However, I was lucky enough to be home in time for last night's final evening. It was wonderful!

We were at my boyfriend's mom's place yesterday for a late birthday dinner celebration for my boyfriend. It was a night of great food, fun, laughter and entertainment!

Anyhoo, I had nothing against the final entries for Melodifestivalen last night. As a matter of fact it was my third time to witness one of Sweden's biggest telly events and last night was yet the best for me. All entries were fantastic and truly worth having spots in the final evening.

After listening to all ten magnificent entries, my vote was captured by Salem Al Fakir. His Keep On Walking piece kept me on listening up to the very last note of the song. He delivered his music well, connected with the audience and viewers and made an absolutely "wowwy" performance. Al Fakir was voted best by the international judges. However, the text and call votes placed Al Fakir a few points lower (he landed on second place).

Here are the video of Al Fakir's performance and the lyrics of Keep On Walking:

I was aiming for the sky, ended up flat on the ground
But once again the sun is rising, I better keep on walking
Keep on walking
I have a long road ahead of me
It’s cloudy and dark, it’s hard to see
Will I ever get through to the end?
Been down this lane so many times before
And I told myself I would do it no more
Now I’m back on the same road again
I was aiming for the sky, ended up flat on the ground
But once again the sun is rising, I better keep on walking
Keep on walking
I was aiming for the sky, ended up flat on the ground
But once again the sun is rising, I better keep on walking
Keep on walking
There’s some twists and turns I’ve gotta clear
But when I’m done the end will soon appear
I can leave my troubles behind
I was aiming for the sky, ended up flat on the ground
But once again the sun is rising, I better keep on walking
Keep on walking
I was aiming for the sky, ended up flat on the ground
But once again the sun is rising, I better keep on walking
Keep on walking
I never stopped believing
I know what I should do, just let the light guide me through
I was aiming for the sky, ended up flat on the ground
But once again the sun is rising, I better keep on walking
Keep on walking
I was aiming for the sky, ended up flat on the ground
But once again the sun is rising, I better keep on walking
Keep on walking
I was aiming for the sky, ended up flat on the ground
But once again the sun is rising, I better keep on walking
Keep on walking
I was aiming for the sky, ended up flat on the ground
But once again the sun is rising, I better keep on walking
Keep on walking


Well, he might not be going to the Eurovision this year but for me, he's the best in Melodifestivalen 2010!
