Every move I made was just for me, Every song I sang was hollow, that was my mistake, I was a fool. Leaving our love behind, what we had I'll never find. I know I have made your heart break & I realize its my mistake.
So you get the idea whats in for you in this post. There was no official video, so i assume this song is for a couple whose relationship has turned sour (my guess, married couple!). So if your partner is upset with you or is not talking to you, sing this to her/him & she/he will be yours again!
My Mistake is a mid-tempo ballad from Mans Zelmerlow's debut album Stand by For...(it was certified Platinum in Sweden & debuted & peaked at # 1) Written by Fredrik Kempe & Mans himself with lyrics by Fredrik Kempe, this one is one gem of a song. There cant be a better song to placate your partner.
What i liked the most in this are those drums & cymbals. And that piano intro is too hard to resist. Since its a Fredrik Kempe's ballad, it had to be melodious & catchy. Ballads sound really good when Mans sings them. His voice is so well suited for them. Song picks up the pace with second verse & last chorus is just too dramatic. Pure bliss. And that piano outro is amazing as well.
Listen to it below. Mind you Cara Mia's Acoustic version starts @ 3:57. You can listen to that as well. Its a watered down version of Man's chartbuster Melodifestivalen debut Cara Mia (this one is again Fredrik Kempe's work & peaked to #1 as well.)
