The Saade Vol.2 Previews: ‘Rocket Science’

scandipop November 27, 2011 14

Today’s preview from ‘Saade Vol.2’ is ‘Rocket Science’. It’s a song composed by the album’s regular trinity of songwriters Eric Saade, Jason Gill, and J-Son – although for this one, they also brought in Salem Al Fakir (pictured with Eric to your right). We didn’t imagine back in March 2010 when Salem and Eric ended up first and second runners-up in the Melodifestivalen final, that they might one day work together on a song. But here it is! It’s one of the album’s mellower moments. Beats are still prominent in the song, but they’re more urban than dance. It’s also one of the record’s more interestingly structured choruses. Definitely a bit of variation for the album.

    I really don’t know what to think about for the first time listening to the preview. Definitely other sounding than Explosive Love or Fingerprints and for me it’s strange! I was really looking forward to this song but now… I don’t know! But anyway, I love Eric and his music so I know that I have to listen to this song a couple of time to love it, but I will, cuz it’s good!

    actually for the first time I heard this I was about ” Oh.My. God. What is this?” because I expected more of it. But now that I got used to it I adore it 😉

    in text this won’t be my favourite song of Saade Vol.2 but I like it nevertheless.
    it’s the FIRST song I don’t like that much next to the other songs. because they are AWESOME!
    especially fingerprints, explosive love, love is calling and feel alive is so beautiful dreamy 😀

    Not one of the best songs from the album i think 😛 but with Eric’s voice everything sounds good, I like it! 🙂

    I think it’s my favorite so far, together with “Fingerprints” and maybe “Crashed on the dancefloor”!

    ‘Fingerprints’ and ‘Hotter than fire’ my favs, so far. Wish him luck with this album. 🙂
