Friday, December 23, Merry Christmas Everybody. He later decided to start and Less Of Me - Evie Tornqvist* - Jul Med Evie up money for children without a home, as he knew what it was like to be longing for home. This EP was made to gather money; in one of the songs he sings that he wants to give all human beings a happier world. Quite an ambitious project. The website is all written in Swedish, but they just put up a new presentation in Englishwhere you can also read about our annual contribution.
Last week I talked about my collection of Christmas Music in morning television, and this week I was talking in two different radio programmes but then I got tiered of myself and cancelled a third programme. There is undoubtedly a growing interest for unusual Christmas Music. Upplagd av Less Of Me - Evie Tornqvist* - Jul Med Evie Lodenius kl. But instead I want to share some other Christmas Songs.
There are two parts, part one and a part two. Hope you enjoy it! This time I want to share some old American favourites with Swedish artists. These recordings were made in the 40ties, when we first discovered some of these well known songs. There are a lot of versions of both songs, but these are my favourites. There is not much to say about Less Of Me - Evie Tornqvist* - Jul Med Evie , apart from that I figure it was made in the 70ties.
The last bit of it was sampled by "Just D", a Swedish hip hop-group, for their record "Juligen" apparently the same name as this blog. Please listen to part o ne and part two of this very traditional Swedish Christmas Record from the 50ties. Wednesday, December 07, Scandinavian Christmas in Hawaii. Yngve Stoor was a Swedish singer performning music in Hawaiian style.
It is all about longing for going home a common theme in Christmas music. He also translated american songs into Swedish. Kalinka turns into cold ham. This is another version of the cover another one is shown below. Thore is also an excellent writer of new lyrics to old Настоятельница - Х. Забей* - Антология. He turned all the old songs used for dancing around the Christmas Tree into barbaric butcher-songs suffering pigs are Space-Age Polymer - The Kirby Grips - Rotations up and down with big knives.
This song from is called Ritsch Ratsch. For another tune, "Kall skinka"he used the russian melodi Kalinka. Kalinka almost sounds like "cold ham" in Swedish, and ham is the main dish on our Christmas table.
Monday, November 21, Christmas With Evie. In Stockholm we just had the first snow of the year. She had a peculiar American accent, I remember. Friday, October 21, Glennmarks - a perfect family The Glenmark family were not really a family, Ann-Louise were a famous singer, her husbound Bruno had an orchestra and was promoting his wife, Anders and Karin were brother and sister - Bruno was a brother of their father.
They sang perfectly in thune but with a lack of temperament that made it rather boring. They also made a Christmas Album in the seventies. Wednesday, Less Of Me - Evie Tornqvist* - Jul Med Evie 28, Sing along with Egon Egon Kjerrman is the unconquerable champion in Sweden when it comes to making many editions of the same recordings.
Always with different covers, sometimes really strange covers. Look down below for a detail with two kids from another cover. The setup is always the same; the poor kids are dancing around the Christmas tree together with Egon who is shouting and singing rather false as load as he can making them speed up. You often find these records in Salvation Army stores and flee markets for less than 2 dollars.
Normally they are in perfect condition, meaning nobody ever wanted to listen to them. No wonder why, if you ask me. Thursday, September 15, Happy Holiday in Sweden. This record contains a bunch of wellknown Swedish artists from the beginning of the sixties. I particularly like the way they are imitating the sound of tripping small "tomtenissar", as we call them in Sweden.
We have a slightly different Christmastradition, originally Father Christmas was not an old man with beard Various - Ritual all, he was Defensive Personalities - Death - Spiritual Healing a small, grey grumpy and rather mean supernatural being known from fairytales.
For various reasons somebody found out it would be nicer with a red cap. And then he turned out to be part of the Christmas celebrations, which was never ment to be. The record contains some national and some international favourites, my favourite amongs the american songs is a hilarious version of "Frosty the Snowman".
Tuesday, May 24, Svensk julidyll - Idyllic Swedish Christmas Why are the children so miserable when it is Christmastime? Why are they not looking at the camera? Why are they having the same ugly slippers and stockings as I had myself when I was at their age? LP Telestar TR I have been collecting Christmas Records for many years. It started off as a an event during an annual Christmas party.
Everybody was asked to bring along their worst Christmas Records. Most of these were of course left behind. This was the beginning of my collection. I am also working on a book about Christmas Records, hopefully in print at Christmas On this websajt I will present selections from my collection of Christmas Records. I will write about Christmas Music, show interesting covers and later on I might even present audio-files with music. This cover is one of my favourites. It is an EP from the early sixties with a wellknown Swedish artist and a personal favourite : Thore Skogman.
As you can tell from the cover the lyrics focuses on food. The Danger Zone - Digital Underground - Sex Packets one of the songs he sings about people that are eating so much that there are shuttletraffic to nearest hospital. Which I would say is not a very unlikely thing to happen during a Swedish Christmas Celebration.
