Eurovision Contest 2009 Champion: Fairytale (Alexander Rybak)

July 4th, 2009 by Ah Doe

I did not know who Alexander Rybak is. On top of that, I didn’t know what Eurovision Contest is. Yeah, shame on me!

I must be honest with you, when I first saw this request in my database, the first thought I had was: It must have something to do with football! The word “Eurovision” led me to “Euro Champion League” or something relevant to that.

I was so wrong! I began to appreciate the idea of collecting requests from readers because I am always being introduced to new songs that I can share with others. Let’s take a look at this youtube video and I’m sure you will get addicted to it. (Ah Doe played this video at least 5 times in a row after watching it, can you believe that?)

Fairytale sounds like a typical old folksong with simple lyrics but I think I am also cursed after listening to it. As a result of this spell, I can’t resist myself from generating its piano sheet.

About this piano sheet:

1) It’s in original key: D Minor

2) Lyrics and Chords included

3) Fairly fast. Recommend to remove some notes from harmonics for intermediate players.

I hope you also noticed the dancers who are doing a lot of stunts and acrobats when Alexander is singing. I find them very entertaining…Hahaha
