Music Monday (Scandinavian Version) (1)

This is a new meme I will do weekly here on the blog, where I talk about scandinavian music that I like. It may be new songs, or older ones.

Music is very important to me. The only time I am not listening to music, is when I read or sometimes when I work. My taste is pretty eclectic: I love metal, pop, dance, classical etc. It all depends on my mood and what I am doing at the moment. When I am working out, I love RnB and rock. When I am working, I like to listen to movie soundtracks. I listen to pop or dance music when I am cooking, and on it goes.

Here is some of the songs I listen to at the moment:

Anine Stang: Dominoes

Anine is recording music with Universal Music. This is a new single from her and it is really catchy, and the video is cool too. The hot guy in the video is a famous Norwegian handballplayer called Kristian Kjelling, voted Norway's most sexiest.

Here is Anine's first Norwegian single, Trying you on:

Mo: Dance like a Freak

This talented guy was the favorite througout most of the Norwegian X -Factor 2010, but sadly he had to leave just before the finale. The exit was top news in many newspapers, and the viewers were outraged. Now he has signed with Sony Music Norway, and this is his debut single. I like it, and it gives me happy wibes. Mo is considered a strong performer, that always gives 110 % whilst on stage.

Here from some of the X-factor shows:
Beautiful by Christina Aguilera:

Faith by George Michael: (starts at 0.37)

Bad Romance by Lady Gaga (The performance starts 1.07)

Amaranthe: Amaranthine

I love this song from Swedish metal band Amaranthe. It brings back all the good wibes from the powermetal songs I used to listen to in the late 80's. This song is from their debutalbum, that was just released.

Which of the songs do you like?

Have a great week, everyone!

I've never heard of these groups before! I actually really ended up liking Anine (and so did my boyfriend when he walked in at the end of "Trying You On"). Great blog! New follower here :)

@Ladybug: Great song :) Thank you for the link.

@Ya Vampire Books: They are not known outside of Norway yet.

@Natalie: Anine lived in L.A in many years, and sang in a lot of bands before she returned to Norway. I think she has catchy music.
