WV 124 ENTRY
Staffan Hellstrand - Fanfar


FANFAR
Det här är en sång, en blomma
Det här är en hälsning till de fromma
De som inte jagar guldet och äran
De som ser lyckan i det de har nära
De som kan leva en dag i sänder
Utan oljade tungor och blodiga händer
De som inte alltid letar efter spänningen i natten
De som kan leva på bara luft och vatten
Det här är en fanfar för de som verkligen har nånting kvar

Det här är en sång, en blomma
Till de som inte är så tomma
De som aldrig patrullerar Gamla Stan
Eller snortar i sig drömmar runt Karlaplan
De som inte alltid sneglar över de som har mera
De som sätter barn till världen och får de att fungera
De som inte vill vara en av ringarna på vattnet
Som kan leva under ytan och tycka det är vackert
Det här är en fanfar för de som verkligen har nånting kvar

Det här är en sång, en blomma
Det här är en hälsning till de fromma
De som kan bygga och bygga och bygga
Och resa sig med solen och känna sig trygga
Som inte schackrar och dealar i en blåfrusen ström
Där varje handslag är ett vapen och varje andetag en lögn
Som inte vill vara en av ringarna på vattnet
Som kan leva under ytan och tycka det är vackert
Det här är en fanfar för de som verkligen har nånting kvar

Det här är en fanfar för de som verkligen har nånting kvar
Det här är en fanfar för de som verkligen har nånting kvar
FANFARE
This is a song, a flower
This is a greeting to the earnest
Those who don't chase after gold and glory
Those who see happiness in the things they hold dear
Those who can live one day at a time
Without silver tongues and bloody hands
Those who don't always search for the thrill in the night
Those who can live on merely air and water
This is a fanfare for those who truly have something left

This is a song, a flower
To those who are not so aimless
Those who never patrol through Gamla Stan
Or snort their dreams away at Karlaplan
Those who don't always look at those who have more
Those who birth and raise children and have them turn out decent
Those who don't want to be one of the ripples on the water
Who can live beneath the surface and still find it beautiful
This is a fanfare for those who truly have something left

This is a song, a flower
This is a greeting to the earnest
Those who can build and build and build
And rise with the sun and feel secure enough
Who don't peddle and deal in a blue frozen stream
Where every handshake is a weapon and every breath a lie
Who don't want to be one of the ripples on the water
Who can live beneath the surface and still find it beautiful
This is a fanfare for those who truly have something left

This is a fanfare for those who truly have something left
This is a fanfare for those who truly have something left

NATIONAL FINAL: SVEA GÄSTABUD


Svealand - The Land of the Svear - is the oldest region in Sweden. Its rich history is still evident wherever you go. As an homage to this, the Svealand National Final shall be called Svea Gästabud, after the famous historical gästabud (banquet) in Nyköping.

Old and new, known and unknown - all kinds of music from Svealand will be sent to WorldVision.

Svealand consists of the following provinces:


It includes towns and cities like Stockholm, Uppsala, Nyköping, Västerås, Örebro and Karlstad. Also, all of Dalarna is a mecca for Swedish folk music.

Re: Svealand (Sweden)

Got inspired by The Luflee to come up with a name for my NF.

Which one do you like? Sveakampen, Svea Festspel, Sveaspelen or Sveafestivalen (though the latter one is kind of obvious and boring)?

Or why not Svea Gästabud, which would hark back to Nyköpings Gästabud, a famous and gruesome historical event that took place in Nyköping, Södermanland (one of the provinces of Svealand). You can read about here: Nyköping Banquet - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Sveakampen could work, though it does kind of sound like something having to do with sports when you think about it. Svea Gästabud is pretty good, with a nice historical link, though hopefully this time around there will be less starvation and imprisonment, and more singing and dancing. ;)

Haha yeah I just thought of Sveakampen since there's a book with that title, plus a kamp could be a contest and that is what this is. I really like Svea Gästabud for the historical homage, but yes much less starvation and imprisonment! :D

Fair enough, though personally, when I read Sveakampen, my mind immediately goes to Finnkampen and stuff like that. But Svea Gästabud is mucn better name, and more original like TheLuflee pointed out, so out of the bunch you've mentioned, you should definitely go with that. :)

Re: Svealand (Sweden)

I've realized and come to the sad conclusion that for WorldVision 01, there won't be a NF for Svealand. Aug 31-Sep 2 is moving weekend for me as I will be moving to a new flat in a completely different part of the country so this will take all of my time. And Sep 3-7 is the first week of university so I will be having lots on my mind and lots to do, so it's just not the right time for me to host a NF amidst all this, when I haven't even done it before. I will select the first song from Svealand internally, and then resume with the NF Svea Gästabud for WorldVision 02!

Hope you all can understand! :D
