‘2nd Best To None’ is sung by “The Rivals”, the staff of the Rival Hotel.
With music by Benny and lyrics by Björn the song sounds like a cousin of ABBA’s 1982 recordings ‘I Am The City’, ‘Under Attack’ and ‘You Owe Me One’ with the female choir sound of ‘Klinga mina klockor’ and even a hint of Benny’s infamous birdsong album Fågelsång i Sverige.
I’m excited that in a little over three weeks I’ll be staying at the Rival and will hopefully be treated “2nd to none”!
See the clip now at rival.se. Keep an eye out for Benny, in the grey jacket towards the back of the crowd on the stage.
