A few weeks ago, when I was talking about The Netherlands, I explained in the first paragraph that there were two places where I am excited to talk about and I have to say Sweden was my second place! Both places have generated a lot of great music for me in the last five, six years now.
I think I should probably list the only male that I had written down into my day planner. I heard Alesso the first time last November when his hit single with another Swedish singer that I’ll be discussing in a minute Tove Lo with their hit song “Heroes” and who knew at that time that it would actually start up my EDM obsession. You were to look through my Starred playlist on Spotify, from mid-November to late January, there is only one dance track and its this song in this time period by February all hell had broken lose apparently because I have so much that I’ve starred in that genre that it seems a little crazy! Back to Tove Lo, I wasn’t into her first single “Habits” like everybody was when it first came out so when I heard this song, I think it started everything as far as me getting into her music.
Last year’s post I talked about ex-Nightwish singer Anette Olzon and she runs her own blog too! Back a couple of years when I was really reading every post she published.. she likes to share music she’s found on Spotify and new/old artists from her country, Zara Larsson was one of them. I had watched the video she had shared on the blog post and I remember she included the words “she sounds like Rihanna” at first I thought she was kidding, but nope she wasn’t! She’s got very a unique voice! I really like it! I also follow Zara’s blog too! Thank god for Google translator! Lastly, this lady is probably my first Swedish singer I ever got into, back in later months of 2010 I heard this song called “Dancing On My Own” and I have to say before going through this EDM phase, I’d only listen to it maybe 2 days and then I’d be done for a few months. So I found this song on one of those times and I remember buying it immediately because I loved it so much! Later on, I heard “Hang With Me” and even though I never bought that song too, I still love it just as much. To end this, how to tell my mom that the “Show Me Love” song by her is by a Swedish singer? Because I’m betting money she doesn’t know that yet!
