5 bands/artists

This post is part of the Endless Blog Challenge.

5 bands/artists that have been recommended to you. And that you actually like. Do mention who or what recommended!

Aah, this made me slightly nostalgic about people who used to be in my life but that aren’t anymore.

  • Let’s start off with a friendly neighbor (i.e. Norwegian). I used to work with one, and her (also Norwegian) friend recommended Sivert Høyem/Madrugada:
  • And then we’ll continue by tagging Lisa who came up with the Endless Blog Challenge; Dustin Kensrue. Lovely voice, and look, he even made a cover of my favorite Imogen Heep song:
  • When both friend L (*wave at L*) and big brother recommend the same artist, you know it’s something special:
  • My old (as in, several years ago – he was not that old) Paul promoted this Norwegian band, that turned into one of my absolute favorites (and best live bands):
  • Before I met my SO and moved to NL and all that, I also knew one of his friends (who then got a gf, moved out and was never heard of again). This was one of his recommendations, and while I think it starts off a bit slow, I still quite enjoy it:

4 songs

This post is part of the Endless Blog Challenge.

4 songs in my playlist. Doesn’t have to be the same playlist, 4 songs you’ve put in  a playlist. Doesn’t even have to be recently, any time will do. It’d be super exciting if you had 4 songs you put in a playlist in 1997. Yes, specifically the year 1997.

Not quite 1997, more like last week. Me and Spotify Discover Weekly are on good terms again:

5 tracks you most recently added to a playlist?

I also want to know what you’re listening to. What are the 5 tracks you most recently added to a playlist?

Man, I’m in a funk with so much right now, listening to music being one of those things. I’ve barely listened at all in the last 3 weeks, and then only to things I already know. Quite boring, no? Hence this list:

Shuffle the Music Tag

Lise nominated my for this tag – thanks for that dear! 😀

The Rules:
1. Thank the person who nominated you and link to their blog
2. Shuffle your entire music library and talk about the FIRST FIFTEEN songs that come up
3. Mention the songs as well as the artists
4. Tag 7 people or more to do this tag and let them know

The music:

  • Weeping Willows  – When you are asleep. Yeah, how could I resist lyrics like these? And the crooning of Magnus?
  • Cristin Milioti – La Vie en Rose. This is the version I can play on ukulele.
  • The Hives – Patrolling Days. One of my favorite songs by these energetic Swedes.
  • Mumford & Sons – Hot Gates
  • Meghan Trainor – NO
  • Regina Spektor – The Prayer of Francois Villon (Russian cover)
  • Veronica Maggio – Hädanefter
  • Säkert! – Det här är vad dom säger
  • Ásgeir – Samhljómur
  • Fireside – Happy Porno Living
  • Sigur Rós – Heysátan
  • Agent Orange – Everything Turns Grey
  • Byrta – Vit Falla
  • Lady Sovereign – Love me or hate me

She did it better (#1)

There are two Swedish artists who are popular in my demographic, and who you’d guess I probably like, who I absolutely cannot stand.

One is Kent. The other is Håkan Hellström. I just cannot. Kent are whiney and Håkan can’t sing. You may like them if you wish, but I will not discuss this matter further 😛

So, that being said, there used to be a Swedish band called Broder Daniel (Brother Daniel), who were also not great (Håkan was in it). One of their big hits was this song:

So, you know. When this song appeared in my Discover Weekly, I thought “hey, I recognize this?”. And can we just agree that she did it better? Kthx.

Titus Lemonades

An episode of Kimmy Schmidt cracked me up for real this week (yeah yeah, I’m behind). Titus is jealous of his boyfriend, and “lemonades”, just like Beyonce.

If you’ve missed it (I guess it’s possible?), this is the original:

And this is Titus’:
