Nordic Pop and Dental Pain from the Irish Sea
Suddenly it went quiet… I tried to sleep, but memories of dental pain ran through my mind and I tried my best to loose myself in the in the slowly rocking blanket of calmness I’d found on the ferry, but it didn’t work… that is when I discovered some new music.
I’m just back home after a trip to England to see my parents, it was a fantastic weekend and a great break, I got to hang out with my parents, see my Dad and my son together… see my sons first reaction to natural yogart (he likes it, but his facial expressions are priceless.. ‘tarty goodness’)… and I discovered some very cool tunes… in the most unlikely of places.
Free magazines, they are one of the world’s mysteries. I normally find them lying around dential surgery’s waiting rooms. Free copies of “Hello” and the discarded inner sections of the Sunday Times are normally the choice of the day. These magazines appear to be the ones no one actually wants to read; Hello has more pictures than text, and the discarded sections where normally discarded for a reason. I expect these free magazines are put there to make you try to ignore the screams of pain, drills and gargling coming from the down the hall way - they never really work. So finding free magazine on the ferry from Holyhead to Dublin immedialy reminded me of the dentist surgery… I started actively listening for the screams of pain.
When my son dropped off to sleep, I tried to do the same, but the memories of the dental surgery where haunting me, unable to sleep I flicked through the free magazine in my hand. Scan magazine is a regular staple onboard the boat, skipping to the back I found the music section. The article (you can find the original from the link above) named three tunes, I though I’d check them out and they were not bad - so I’m sharing them with you good people here:
- Orion - In The End (the music video looks like a karaoke video - ignore it)
- Vi hade allt (sounds like a Eurovision submission)
Next time I’m in the dentist I’ll be looking for some more Nordic pop… that and the exit.
