#59 on DE iTunes.
Get those 3 downloads! 8-)
Smash! :cry: when will Sweden?
He's bigger in Poland those days. Every Eurovision winner after ABBA immediately becomes a has-been in Sweden.

Surprisingly he's well known there (he had a hit before Heroes)

At least Mans had a couple hits and successful albums and now he has a new career as TV presenter :lol:

There's barely any demand for his music.
He even tried acting (in a TV drama).

Personally, i don't need new music from him, Chameleon was rushed and wasn't promoted and there was no need to release a new album a year after Perfectly Damaged. However, he should promote Happyland, it a nice song that has potential.

I am surprised he didn't take the opportunity to perform it on the BBC Eurovision show. :-?

Sure he wanted to, but BBC probably didn't allow him to.

You are underestimating the power of advertising and its ability to connect with people (when done right) - look at the post of trebor above ...

He should take this opportunity and push the single and the album further.

Happyland is a very good song!! I love the acoustic version too.

1 - This is not a random ad, it is all about brand recognition and ability to relate to that brand

2 - There are at least a few cases in UK and US (admittedly, in the more distant past), where an ad brought a song to #1 (We Are Young by Fun for Chevrolet Sonic, A Little Less Conversation by Elvis vs. JXL for Nike Football, Flat Beat by Mr. Oizo for Levi's)

But in our case, we're talking about Mans who is not well-known in Germany. Also, he receives zero airplay as far as i know...

some live promo on GER TV would make this one of the biggest songs of 2018 in Germany.

I agree, cmon make a move and start a campaign in his facebook page or maybe there's a German fan club that can help? :P ask radio stations and TV shows to invite him!

For now, he will be performing in the Polish NF. I hope he performs Happyland (and not just Heroes :P )
