No one notices your brand new sweater…

Posted on Friday, October 23, 2015 in Other

I haven’t really heard this song completely, but it’s been on a couple of tv shows over the past five years or so, that I’ve been forced to passively watch/listen to, so I’m a bit familiar with it. It’s actually a really sad song which tells you the harsh, realistic truth about life – how no one will grieve when you die, no one wants to know what you’re doing and no one wants to know where you bought your brand new sweater. Which is kind of the way life is, isn’t it? If it isn’t a whole lot worse than that. I think so anyway…

However, a great antidote to life’s depressing aspects is – writing!

So I’d add a line to the song – ‘No one notices your brand new sweater – but that’s ok, if you write something good, cool or fun.’

If you don’t write, let’s say the same except ‘but that’s ok because you can always read a good book.’ 🙂

Somewhere in Sweden (‘My soldier’)

This one doesn’t have anything to do with my situation, but since I was on YouTube and found this sad song, I’ll post it here anyway. And just because I’m interested in history.

More Swedish. 🙂
Martin Stenmarck – Hundra år från nu (Blundar och håller andan lite till)
The title means A hundred years from now (I close my eyes and hold my breath a little longer.)

Niclas Wahlgren – another Swedish song

Posted on Wednesday, March 24, 2010 in Fandom, Other

Another Swedish song: Niclas Wahlgren – I himlen har jag aldrig varit (I’ve never been to heaven)

I love this guy and I love this song, that he wrote for his son, Tim. Fatherly advice for a kid growing up.

If you’re interested, check out this video, to see what Niclas looked like in the mid 1980’s. The clip is from a movie, so taken out of context it will most likely be incomprehensible, but it will show you the young Niclas. Here is another one (you don’t need to watch the whole clip) from the late 1990’s, of Niclas and his sister Pernilla. Finally, this clip is from last year, again you’ll see Niclas and his sister.

First I have to warn my readers (listeners/viewers) that this song is in Swedish. It’s a great song, by a guy I’m crazy about. His girlfriend will have to forgive me. LOL.
