Things That Make me Say Hellz Yeah: Part Something

I'm going to be critiquing a friend's novel today. Well, okay, continuing to critique, since obviously I can't do the whole thing in a day. I'll also be writing, so I'm just going to leave you with this video.

I love this song. I don't quite know why. Yes, I discovered it through a beer commercial. No, I don't care.



It's pop, I know, but it's Scandinavian pop, which makes it a lot more fun. And weird. Mette Lindberg and Lars Iversen are Danes. Which means they're not quite as cool as Dutch or Swedes, but still much cooler than Americans.

Bonus: my kids love it.

And I even posted in the morning, just for you.


Okay, I wrote it yesterday. But I'm still very proud.

My novel or a different one? It's funny how much you love that first novel, and it never goes away, but the further you get into the next novel the more distant it feels. It's like it was in an earlier life or something. I can't wait for you to see this next novel someday!

Great video clip. Not quite Abba, but then...many more Scandinavian pop groups since way back then when Abba was the first anyone heard from way up and over there.

Beer commercials as a music resource? Now that's unique!

You critique novels too? Is there no end to your talents?!

I get to critique a friend's novel today as well! ... after my English final. Oh joys. :)
Nifty song!

Needs slightly more cowbell (just a smidge) but otherwise it's a very catchy song!

Patti said...

The song is definitely addictive. I've heard it before.

If Matthew has a limit to his talents, I don't think anyone's discovered what that might be!

Paul Joseph said...

Some of the best songs are used in beer commercials! It's a great source of inspiration.

Okay, so I can't say this is my favorite. But it's definitely cool.

What better way to discover a song than through a beer commercial?

Jemi Fraser said...

Very cool! :)

Barbara Kloss said...

Definitely fun and upbeat - thanks for sharing. Don't you just love what music you can stumble across through commercials?

Solvang Sherrie said...

Easy, now -- don't go knocking the Danes! I live in a Danish town and I happen to think Danes are every bit as cool as Dutch or Swedes!! :)

What is it about Scandinavian pop that makes us love it so? What is it about Scandinavian culture that makes them produce music like this?

Thanks for the vid! It's catchy.
