by Alexander Borodin 71 views

The songs from Melodifestivalen 2005 are invading the Swedish single charts. 18 Melodifestivalen songs currently are in the Top 40 of the Swedish Hitlistan. Surprisingly, the winner Martin Stenmarck only reached the seventh place with the song Las Vegas. The girls' favourite Jimmy Jansson (pictured) who ended 6th in last week's final has become the best seller.

Melodifestivalen songs in the Swedish Hitlistan, week 11:

01 � Jimmy Jansson – Vi kan gunga
03 � Alcazar – Alcastar
04 � Shirley Clamp – Att älska dig
05 � Cameron Cartio – Roma
07 � Martin Stenmarck � Las Vegas
08 � Linda Bengtzing � Alla flickor
10 � Nordman � Ödet var min väg
13 � Josef – Rain
15 � Nanne- Håll om mig
20 � Fredrik Kempe & Sanna Nielsen � Du och jag mot världen
25 � Jessica Folcker � Om natten
26 � Matthias Holmgren � Långt bortom tid och rum
29 � PAY TV � Refrain, Refrain
31 � The Wallstones � Invisible People
32 � Caroline Wennergren � A different kind of love
34 � B-boys International feat. Paul M � One step closer
40 � LaGaylia � Nothing at all

Last week Alcazar held the number one position and Jimmy was only 13th. Nanne, who won the televote last Saturday is apparently not the most popular choice for Swedish single buyers as it's currently only number fifteen. Martin Stenmarck who will represent Sweden at the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest only reached the 7th spot in his first week in Hitlistan.

The CD with all the 32 participating songs in Melodifestivalen 2005 can be bought here. Next week the DVD containing the final and the four semifinals will be released.
