Song of the day, September 27th 2010
Here’s my favorite song. It’s by a Swedish singer-songwriter who’s become something of a national icon by now. It’s his quarter-life/mid-life crisis song, sort of. I’m too lazy to translate the lyrics, because they are in Swedish, but even if they are, I think the feeling of the song comes through with the music and harmonies. It’s about someone who faces a crossroads in life, having some regrets but still being pretty optimistic about the future. If you want to get some really interesting results, put the lyrics through Google Translate. Anyhow, I really identify with this song right now and have been doing so for a few years.
