POLL: Vote for New Eric Saade Songs/Videos for “Miss Unknown” and “Marching (In The Name Of Love)”


Last week, Sweden’s Eric Saade unleashed his video for “Marching (In The Name Of Love)”, and then I found out “Miss Unknown” would be launched this week, so after more than three years of writing this blog, I thought I would have my first poll!!

“Marching” seems to have lots going on, possibly three plots, including some snazzy Janet Jackson “Control” era choreography.  Eric is being held against his will and must escape.  There are flashes to scenes with his girl… is he dreaming… is it in the past or yet to come?  Then, busting those swift moves the way we’ve seen in scenes from his shows.  Story to be continued.  The story moves along smoothly to the song, but I’m not sure if I’m liking the song any better for it.  I’m still having a tough time with the sound that seems more will.i.am than Eric Saa-aade.

“Miss Unknown”, on the other hand, greatly enhances the song with a story about what looks like a one night stand… or is it?  Not if Eric has his way, which gives way for all kinds of expressive angst and emotion to try to find That Girl.  BUT… wait for the ending.  It seems like someone didn’t know how to end it or wanted to add shock value or humour.  It doesn’t work, but overall I like both the video and song for “Miss Unknown” better than “Marching”.

Now that I’ve said my peace – and I’m still more thrilled with songs from either Saade Volume 1 or 2 over both of these – what do YOU think?

Take the simple poll below and in a week, providing I get enough response, I will reveal which video/song is the winner!
