Hi there, Whuzzerface here,
My laptop lives again!!!! Really, the biggest reason I haven’t posted as frequently in the past few months is because my dearest love in the world, Lappy, has been on the injured (and by injured, I mean the hard drive locked up to the point the even my #1 bro-in-law couldn’t crack it! When I mess up something, there are no half measures here) list so I’ve had to grab a few minutes on sympathetic sisters computers to get even email time. ‘Das all about to change!
Let’s kick off the revival with some non-English language pop music all the way from Sweden, and you know how much I love my Swedish pop!
In case you can’t see the similarity to English though, the name “Familjen” translates to “The Family” but is really just one man with many tastes. This particular song has been with me for several years floating around my “sure to get me some pep and energy” playlist. I have to add that yes, this is the OFFICIAL music video AND it won a Swedish Grammy for Best Music Video back in 2007. “Det Snurrar I Min Skalle” means “My Head Is Spinning” and one of my favorite translated lines is “I lit a fire for you and now the whole forest is burning!” (read more here)
