8. FINLAND I: AB – I Only Need This Weekend

“I Only Need This Weekend”
Performed by: AB
Music by: Bo Söderholm
Lyrics by: Anssi Partanen & Bo Söderholm

Last year’s organiser and two-time HCSC winner Bo Söderholm is back this year as part of a duo with Anssi Partanen. Will it be another victory in 2018?

In their own words:
We have been writing songs together for many years, but this is the first single we have recorded as AB. We both love music from the 80’s and we decided to make a song that flirts with the pop-sound from that time.

“I Only Need This Weekend” was born on a hot July evening and we both felt that it’s the right song to be AB’s first single. It has a happy vibe, mandatory 80’s handclaps and it will make you want to sing along. Enjoy it!

Lyrics:
You’re telling me, that you are not so sure
If I’m the one, that you are looking for
You hesitate, when I am asking you
If you still feel, the same way as I do

I take your hand and look into your eyes
I hope that you can see
That every word and everything I do
Is just for you and me

I only need this weekend, baby
To show you that my heart is full of desire
I only need this weekend, baby
I’m gonna make you see that my love is on fire
Ooh- it’s all about me and you
Ooh- let me show you what a weekend can do

I’m telling you, that I am oh so sure
That I’m the one, that you are searching for
And deep inside, I know you feel it too
‘Cos what we have, is meant for me and you

I take your hand and look into your eyes
I hope that you can see
That every day and everything we do
Is our destiny

I only need this weekend, baby
To show you that my heart is full of desire
I only need this weekend, baby
I’m gonna make you see that my love is on fire
Ooh- it’s all about me and you
Ooh- let me show you what a weekend can do
