Meanwhile, across the North Sea in Sweden…. 19 year old Eric Saade is telling us, in a leather jacket and gloves: ‘You can call me manboy’ before pleading, in the crie de coeur of metrosexuals everywhere: ‘Give me lurve! Give me lurve! — Don’t go!’.
The pleasingly annoying/annoyingly pleasing ditty ‘Manboy’ cranks to a creaky climax with Eric receiving an open-mouthed drenching while on his knees.
This probably shouldn’t be very surprising. Sweden is the country, you may remember, that gave us Abba, Ikea and Freddie Ljunberg. Sweden is probably the most metrosexual country on Earth.
‘Manboy’ is in with a good chance of being chosen by Swedish TV viewers as their country’s entry in the family-friendly Eurovision Song Contest.
They should. It would win.
Or obversely, who was it that exclained: “This ass makes my penis look so small”! Genet hd some odd catch all like that in his novels like “girl boys” etc.
Young Eric could be tired of being taken for a or a Man-girl and wanted to add (butch)clarity too his image.
A boy who has a man’s penis. Possibly.
What the bloody hell is a manboy anyway? Urban dictionary doesn’t give any definition which fits the song.
Could be you’re having some bizarre atavistic hankering to take up syncronized dance, Mark. They usualy were skirts and hop around claping their knees and ankles.
Well, as usual, I want it both ways/ends: I am horrified – but mostly at how much I like it.
Not that you’re sarchasm is blurry, just that I get blurry on that particular subject
How dim of me! Sorry I Missed the sarcasm at first. . Actually they should just come here to Minnesota, and set up camp. but come think it’s better if they go on Eurovision Song Contest.
I’ld take Freddie if he didn’t talk! or maybe if he could (?)
Did I say I wasn’t horrified?
So well syncronized, they could have arrived in a crackjack box. Frankly was horrified–sorry Mark to differ but they do bring to mind the factory produced singing groups from the U.S.. His jacket even looks vinyl. If that shower was actually a golden shopwer group performing that would be. Little House on the Prarie goes to Hollywood?
He’ quite adorable. As for Eurovision, he’ll go down a storm. It’s a well choreographed show piece and he know how to use the camera.
I wouldn’t like to take my chances with a microphone in the rain. Maybe that’s what the gloves are for …
