Curious About the Swedes? May 19, 2013

One of the highlights of the Eurovision Song Contest Final from last night was the program in the intermission: The Swedish Smorgasbord, by Petra Mede, Swedish comedienne, dancer and television host.

This is her presentation of Sweden and Swedes for all those of you who are curious – and Swedes to be entertained. Our relationship to church,  the need of consensus – even at the combat zone, the talent of doing compost, Carola and    many more goodies at the smorgasbord.

Any surprises?

Enjoy,

We Write The Story

Yesterday The Eurovision Song Contest 2013 Final was held in Malmo, in Sweden.

What I didn’t know was that the Eurovision was created  57 years ago by a group of broadcasters with the intent to unify Europe after world war II through the power of music. It makes total sense. And today the event is bigger than ever.

The event opened with a newly composed Eurovision Anthem “We Write The Story”, written by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus. and the Swedish DJ, and record producer Avicii. “We couldn’t get ABBA – but ABA”, as Petra Mede introduced them.

A master piece. Here it is. Enjoy!

Love, me. March 29, 2013

This morning, I was talking to the world. And the world started talking back to me.

Both of us were lonely, a little angry. Both of us looking for a friend.

We were saying how we’d never be alone again.

All I heard was two little words: love, me. Love, me. Love, me.

And that the end of the note, that I wrote to the world:

Can you here me? Are you listening?

Love me.

These are the first lines from one song on the U.S. debut by Swedish singer Anna Bergendahl. On the record label Decca Records website you can read: (more…)
