Untitled design.jpg

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’:

3 songs about revolution 

The Endless Blog Challenge.

Inspired by Josh Homme’s little speech at the QOTSA concert in Amsterdam on Sunday.

You get right up and sit back down
A revolution is one spin round

Paranoia is in bloom
The PR transmissions will resume
They’ll try to push drugs that keep us all dumbed down
And hope that we will never see the truth around

If we unite we can take them
Grab them hard and then shake them
If we unite we can break them
Oh baby! Wouldn’t that be nice – wouldn’t that be nice

Four favorite singers

The Endless Blog Challenge.

Four favorite singers. 4 singers you love unconditionally, who can sing any old crap and you still think they’re the best thing ever.

Love this prompt! ❤

I realize he doesn’t have the best voice out there, but who can resist HPA?

Linnéa keeps showing up in my Discover Weekly, and I like everything I hear by her.

This guy’s cover of You’re the one that I want (yes, from Grease) was in an ad for… Chanel or something? So obviously not my kind of stuff, but I find his voice hauntingly beautiful.

And obviously, no music list on this blog without Annika Norlin/Hello Saferide/Säkert!
