"You're Out of My Life"

"You're Out of My Life" is a song recorded by Swedish singer Darin and was Darin's entry in Melodifestivalen 2010. The song in full was first performed in Deltävling 3 (Heat 3) of Melodifestivalen in Göteborg on February 20, 2010 where Darin won second place and pregressed to the final[1] on March 13 in Stockholm. The single was released on February 28, 2010.[2] This is Darin's first physical single release since his departure from Sony Music.


On 3 November 2009, it was announced that Darin would be participating in the Melodifestivalen 2010,[3][4] the Swedish show which determines the country's entry to the Eurovision Song Contest 2010 in Oslo, Norway. Darin entered with the mid-tempo ballad "You're Out of My Life" written by Tony Nilsson and Henrik Janson who wrote Velvet's The Queen for the 2009 edition.[5] Darin performed 7th in Deltävling 3 (Heat 3) of Melodifestivalen.

There was worry that Darin's song "You're Out of My Life" would be disqualified after it was incorrectly made available to purchase during the week after the semi-final. A total of 54 downloads of the full studio version were made, making a #95 entry into the Swedish singles chart. However SVT confirmed that Darin would not be disqualified as the mistake was made by the distributor and not by Darin or his management. The song was immediately taken off the music store, and was officially released along with the rest of the Melodifestivalen songs.[6]

The song progressed to the second round of voting after which Darin was voted through to the final[1] coming second in the heat after girl group Timoteij with their song "Kom". Darin took part in the Melodifestivalen final on Saturday, March 13, 2010 at Globe Arena in Stockholm, he came an eventual 4th place with a total of 117 points receiving two sets of 12 points from the Greek and Russian juries.
