Iceland: Song Selected But Who Wrote It?
Jóhanna Guðrún Jónsdóttir won the Icelandic selection with "Is It True".
At 18 Jóhanna is a relative newcomer to the Icelandic music scene but in true Icelandic tradition she has recorded some songs for children's cds as a young teen.
Listen to the song and all other Icelandic contenders at the RÚV Söngvakeppni page
You can also listen to the original demo version by Tinatin at reverbnation and read all about it at Tinatin's MySpace blog.
There is a little discrepancy though, RÚV only mentions Óskar Páll Sveinsson as the writer of the song, but Tinatin wrote it with Chris Neil and aforementioned Oskar Paul. Sort it out guys.
Tónlist has the album with all selections songs (digital), Eurovision CD out soon on Sena.
Special thanks to Jan @ the Moscow Collection !!
