I always try to find a new incentive to play Fairytale.
Tonight Rybak will be onstage at Eurovision again.
Yesterday Lars Lillo-Stenberg did a new Version of Alexander Rybak’s song “Fairytale” in “Hver Gang vi Møtes” and the reviewer in Dagbladet gave 6 on the dice.
The song became an immediate hit and a door opener to the 27 year old when he won the Eurovision Song Contest in Moscow in 2009, and has given him an enormous success. Rybak has played the song numerous times since, but feels he will never get tired of the pop song with a violin sound.
