Subject: Norwegian Music

Written By: Night Train on 03/10/09 at 1:43 pm

Hello

I am new to this Forum and generally interested in all kind of music, but since I’m Norwegian I want to highlight some music from Norway that is probably not so well known out there, but still worth listening to.  If you have some good links to music from your country please let me know and I will check it out.

There's a few names I recognize...
Röyksopp of course, although they never had any real chart successes (so far)
Maria Mena is rather popular over here. She's made our Top 40 (or bubbling under section) quite a few times. "All This Time" even got to #6 in our Top 40 last year.


Others were just one hit wonders:
- Espen Lind's "When Susannah Cries" got to #10;
- Lene Marlin's "Sitting Down Here" got to #5;
- Kurt Nilsen's version of "She's So High" got to #4,
- and M2M had a #15 hit with "Don't Say You Love Me". Marit Larsen never made it solo over here.

I'll give the others a listen when I have more time. :)

Thanks for posting those Norwegian songs.  Here in the US, we don't have "access" to many European artists.  One of my favorite European bands is A-ha, which is probably the most popular export.

I like the Thom Hell, Thomas Dybdahl, Ralph Myerz, Madrugada, Heroes and Zeros, and first Tommy Tokyo songs - though I never heard them before.

I already knew Royksopp, Annie, Kings of Convenience, Maria Mena, and Sondre Lerche. 

Other Norwegian artists I know are:

Erlend Oye - Its A Fine Day http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oxM5OHwz9vw

Orjan Nilsen - La Guitarra  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Omsl4JILlAs

I didn't even know Royksopp were from Norway.  Their song 'Remind Me' gained quite popularity in North America due to it's use in a Geico Commercial (the one with the Caveman on the airport walkway)

I'd already known about it though because I like their music alot :)

I think Röyksopp did quite well in the Uk, and both Lene Marlin and Maria mena do quite well in Germany.  You should check out Marit Larsen, totally different from M2M, she was the quiet part of M2M, but the most talented in my opinion.

Yes, A-ha is probably the most famous Norwegian Band ever.  I purposely did not include A-ha in my list, because I wanted to highlight artists not so known abroad.  The members of A-ha have also done some sideprojects which are quite good.  Morten Harket and Magne Furuholmen as soloartists and Paal Waaktar as founder of the band Savoy.

Thanks for the links Henk.  Dutch music is not very well known in Norway so it’s nice to get some inside tip.

Pete Philly -  Very good.  Reminds me a little bit of US3 (Cantaloop) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g9HnoRgRIwg

I like Kane and especially the Rain Down On Me version.

Ilse de Lange – Nice songs.

VanVelzen – Reminds me of Billy Joel. Good music.

Intwine – I like it, a little bit similar to Daughtry.

Anouk had a hit in Norway with Nobody’s Wife and recently with the song Lost which was covered by a 15 year old boy Erlend Bratland who won Norway’s Got Talent competition in 2008.  (Lost) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_9zqBodbrVM
She’s changed her style over the years from rock to country and soul/blues…Still looks good…

It is sad that ignorant humans are so afraid of that which they do not understand. Black metal is a force to be reckoned with in the extreme music scene. More so than the pathetic American grindcore bands that merely try and shock simply minded middle-American christian folk, those at the forefront of the black metal scene create a totally objective form of music away from the blues based simplicity of most styles of pretend extreme music.

Individuals such as Count Grishnackh (the recently paroled Varg Vikernes) have propagated a serious political and social belief structure through their music. Whether you agree or not, this is far more interesting than the pathetic rap and pop nonsense that is spewed from the Hollywood music machine.

Many of the prominent members of the black metal community express deeply anti-christian sentiments. This I cannot support enough. Before Christianity was forced upon the people of Norway, there were proud traditions and strong codes of ethics that were held up by proud people. Then the Christian filth come from the south and the blaze in the Northern sky was extinguished by weak codes of belief in false Gods. The members of the black metal community that are working to turn Norway back to the traditions and codes of old are merely fighting to reclaim their birth right from the Christian hordes that have extinguished the proud traditions of Norway.

These beliefs have been manifested in many ways but primarily Church burnings have been used as a way to show support for the cause. It is hard not to condemn the destruction of historical landmarks, but the burning of these temples of falsehood is merely another way of supporting the old ways.

Obviously everybody has heard about the murders, but these are as much connected to the black metal scene as teenagers committing suicide was to back-masking Judas Priest records. The murders were committed due to a dislike of communists and homosexuals, not due to the beliefs of the overall black metal community.

We are a blaze in the Northern Sky, the next thousand years are ours.

You're welcome. :) Most of the songs I posted were (big) hits in Holland, but not all.

Hmmm...I'm not sure I like that Erlend Bratland version. :-\\  Sorry...

I didn't know Anouk had hits in Norway, to be honest. Her style has changed somewhat, but not really that much IMO. I just had to make a selection out of her many hits.
Anouk was married to Ronald Stotijn (aka The Anonymous Mis), a member of Postmen (see my previous post). The couple have three children (Benjahmin Kingsley, born 18 April 2002;  Elijah Jeremiah, born 5 December 2003, and Phoenix Ray, born 3 June 2005). They split up in 2008.

I love Black Metal.

Concerning the church burnings, however, I must say that I do not advocate crime, nor condone it.

It seems to me that the church burnings did a flawed favor to the “cause” –to say the least.

I think I can understand the resentment that a part of the Norwegian people can feel towards Christianity. But I fail to understand how anyone could truly believe that any cause could be forwarded by destroying property in that manner.

War is war. In war, combatants kill and destroy the enemy (other combatants).

Killing innocent people (non-combatants) by the army is a war crime.

Killing anyone or destroying property in time of peace by some “rebellious” group is terrorism.

I do not advocate war crimes nor terrorism. 

I think that the church burnings in Norway were a terrorist act and a confession of weakness.

Many Black Metal fans consider themselves as Satanists.

Satanism acknowledges the fact that victory is the basis of right. That is not a moral code or a commandment. That is simply an acknowledgement of the facts of Nature.

When you win, you can rule. When you don’t win, you can’t rule.

Christianity arrived, and they won. So, they ruled.

The church burnings were, in actuality, a statement of defeat. “Yes, we lost” –that’s the real message those youngsters actually sent.

That is just my opinion, and please –please, I beg you– do not take it personally. I realize you might have strong feelings concerning that matter. I truly respect your feelings and I respect you. Do not consider my words as a personal attack, ok?      :)

Thems too. Sadly, "Mouth" died in 2004. :\'(
Wikipedia needs updating on that point

Nice to hear that Madcon is doing well in Canada.   If you like madcon you should check out this song by Madcon ft. El Axel  - Suda Suda. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6gXSqzF5-mQ

BTW, just came back from Toronto where I was introduced to the stand up comedian Russel Peters.  He must be one of the funniest man alive...

Night Train


Cool song.  I may think about getting the MAdcon album if (or when) it gets released here.

Russell Peters is immensely popular.  Every country has that one comedian that comes along and blows all the competition from same country out of the water. 

The UK has Russell Brand
The US has Larry the Cable Guy
Canada has Russell Peters

Wiki normally has it in the first sentence about the person.

Madcon have just entered the Canadian chart with their single 'Beggin'.  It is a re-written cover of the classic Four Seasons hit and was already a hit last year throughout Europe

I don't like Hip-Hop, but I like this song


Not entire Europe... "Beggin' " has just this week entered bubbling under section of Dutch Top 40. :D

Well, of course! Thanks for your input. Good point.

The Satanic Bible also says "be dangerous even in defeat".

I guess you guys have another thread to discuss your points of view.

Why, are they really that threatening?

Clearly, you are very uncomfortable with your beliefs.

I don't find it particularily threatening, I just can't see why the Satanic Bible should be discussed in a topic related to music. 
I don't mind you discussing Norwegian Black Metal bands or Black Metal music, but political and/or religious topics should be discussed here: http://www.inthe00s.com/index.php?board=20.0

I would've thought all of Europe lapped up that song along with the UK in '08.  Guess it's a late bloomer in more than just North America.

It's still rising in Canada.  If it reaches the Top 40, it will be the first single by a Norwegian artist to reach the Canadian Top 40 since A-ha with 'Forever Not Yours' in 2002

Madcon's Beggin' has claimed the #1 spot in Dutch Top 40 this week.

I'm not entirely sure, but this might just make them the first Norwegian #1 since A-Ha's "Take On Me" in 1985.

I guess these guys took A-Ha's song literally.  ;D
