Any self respecting mincer will have discovered to their sheer delight over the past few weeks, that Helena Paparizou’s ‘Survivor’ is THE perfect song for getting your defiant and purposeful strut on to. But for those of you who prefer not to embark on public displays of fierceness on busy pedestrian walkways, there’s now a calmer way for you to enjoy the song on your headphones.
Ahead of this weekend’s Melodifestivalen final, Helena has recorded a video of her performing ‘Survivor’ with the sole accompaniment of an acoustic guitar. Well actually she did it ahead of last weekend’s Andra Chansen round, but we were in Sitges getting trashed, so weren’t able to share it. It’s an alternative version of what’s turned out to be an incredible song. And it’s an interesting way to hear another take on it. THE PIPES ON HER!
Below you can watch Helena Paparizou turn in her acoustic version of ‘Survivor’. And you can MARVEL at the original in all its live glory over at our guide to this weekend’s Melodifestivalen final.
Helena Paparizou’s new album ‘One Life’ comes out on March 23rd in Sweden, but you can already pre-order the album on CD from our store.
