Karin Park – Human Beings
The Norwegian Melodi Grand Prix featured an extremely strong selection of songs this year, many of which had the potential to be radio hits, and to achieve a respectable showing at the contest. ‘A Monster Like Me’ was one of those, and a popular entry it turned out to be.
However if it was a little too dreary for you, you may have preferred the electronic ‘Human Beings’ by Karin Park. Karin co-wrote ‘Feed You My Love’ from 2013, and ‘Human Beings’ is the natural successor to that, with its haunting production and striking performance. I was behind both this and ‘A Monster Like Me’ at MGP, but on balance, I think I would just about have preferred this as the Norwegian entry.
