  • So many great songs!

    11. Nov. 2006, 22:34

    I have been (and still am) going through a phase where I have to stop myself from listening to Carola all the time and to do so I've had to find som really great songs that could take my mind off her music for some time. Because of that I've find a lot of songs which I just LOVE. Alone is one of them - what a great song. I've also given Hillsong United a listen and wow, Awesome God makes me wanna go out and join a choir... lovely song! King of Majesty is pretty good too. I heard You Give Me Something in a commercial on tv and fell in love with it instantly - his voice is magic. I already had Stopp! Nej! Gå Härifrån! on my computer but I'd never listened to it till today, it's very dancey - which I like! I finally saved my Laundry Service album on my computer and had a good time to listening to most of the songs but especially Ready for the Good Times. I've also listened a lot to Can't Help Falling In Love (Live At Lake Las Vegas) - reminds me of when I saw him sing it (and the duet with Carola) on Bingolotto in Sweden in October - good times, haha.

    That's all for now, there are lots more but I can't remember them 'cause I'm tired, hehe. I guess I just needed to remind myself of how many great songs there are out there :)
  • Songlist from Båstad, July 25 2006 - Carola

    12. Aug. 2006, 14:38

    (I'm writing this for my own sake so I won't forget)

    Genom Allt
    Jag Ger Allt
    Ingenting Du Säger
    Vem Kan Älska Mig
    *Herre, Till Dig Får Jag Komma
    Tro På Kärleken
    Jag Lever Livet
    Medley: Mickey/Tommy Tycker Om Mig
    Stanna Eller Gå
    *God You Are Wonderful
    Fast Det Är Mörkt Nu
    Främling
    Fångad Av En Stormvind
    Evighet
    *När Löven Faller
    *(a bit of Walk A Mile In My Shoes)
    *Sanna Vänner

    (* extra)
    I love artists that are impulsive and add songs that they didn't sing at other venues on the tour to the setlist. Makes it all a little more personal and special :D

    The best concert I've ever been to. Carola is such an amazing singer.

    You've seen it a million times before, but here are the rules anyway ;)

    Step 1: Open up whatever MP3 program you use and add every song in your collection.
    Step 2: Put it on random.
    Step 3: Post the first line from the first 20 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing.
    Step 4: Post and let everyone guess what song and artist the lines come from.
    Step 5: Bold the songs that someone guesses correctly.
    Step 6: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING!


    1. Nobody but me could know the way I feel
    2. There's no power capable of coming between us, dividing our love
    3. I, I've been in love before
    4. Feels like I'm going in circles
    5. I went alone to the party and worked my way through the crowd
    6. What'd you forget? -Got a light?
    7. Just a small town girl living in a lonely world
    8. There's freedom within, there is freedom without
    9. Buisness and pleasure keeping you up
    10. Jag är ingen våldsam kvinna
    11. I wanna bruise your lips with a tender kiss
    12. Everybody's high on consolation
    13. He said "Baby what's wrong with you?"

    15. Nager dans les eaux troubles
    16. När löven faller av och kvar är vi
    17. Can't you see that it's just raining?
    18. You think that I can't live without your love
    19. People ask if I'm in love with you
    20. Why can't you see that I'm still mad about you?

  • Swedish music!

    12. Jun. 2006, 22:32

    Every time I discover a new artist from Sweden the music is just GREAT! ABBA were my first love but a little while ago I discovered Carola (well... I already knew her but only her most 'famous' songs like Främling and Fångad Av En Stormvind). She's absolutely amazing and I already have 8 of her cd's. Then because of the ESC pre-show with a nordic jury I became interested in Nanne Grönvall (she was one of the jury members). I've fallen in love with her music and her lyrics are brilliant and so funny.
    THEN I searched aftonbladet.se for Carola pics and news and find out that Lena Philipsson is pretty big in Sweden too. I had no idea that she participated in ESC in 2004 'cause I didn't see the show that year (I was on a trip to the Faroe Islands with my class) so I was surpised to know that she'd sung Det Gör Ont in ESC. I found lots of great songs by her too.
    Recently I've also listened to Linda Bengtzing and Sara Löfgren thanks to last.fm!
    I listen to lots of other swedish artits too but these are the ones that I just found out about... I'm SO glad I found them

    Some of the others I like too:
    Agnetha Fältskog
    BWO

  • Disappointed in Eurovison

    21. Mai. 2006, 10:14

    It has become a "vote-for-you-neighbour-or-the-country-that-also-speaks-your-language-contest". My country had a great singer with a great song and she sung it beatifully and hardly got any votes. And don't think I'm being objective - I lot of years I thought our entry majorly sucked but not this year. I can't believe Lithuania got as many votes as they did. The song itself was horrible and the lyrics "We are the winner.... of Eurovision" were even worse. Also the fact that Belgium didn't even make it to to finals were alarming.
    I think Lordi were fine but not great. It was refreshing to see someone different but to be completely honest their song wasn't that good. Sweden and Romania were my absolute favourites but Carola "only" made it to number 5 and I can't remember what Romania fisnihed as.

    I'm really beginning to think that it'd be better if every country had a professional jury who were the ones to decide the points.

    I will probably watch it next year though... I hope I won't be too disappointed - again...
