New favourites this year


Today I want to share some new favourites that I just found this, or sometimes last, year. Unfortunatly I think they will be mostly appreciated by a Swedish audience. But give it a try:

* "Jul i Las Palmas" (Christmas in Las Palmas) with Harry Brandelius. A song about going to a warm country celebrating Christmas with a lot of drinking and prostitutes.

* "En officiell låt för den svenska julen" (the official song for the Swedish Christmas) with Jimmy Nordin and Sören Tallhem. Jimmy Nordin is a shotputter that possibly soon will be more known for his weird records.

* "Julkortslåten" (The song of Christmas Cards) with Lasse and Morgan, a duo that performs for children. This song tells that licking stamps for postcards is tasty and fun, which I really doubt. (This year I haven't sent one single card.)

For those that already downloaded "Christmas in Las Palmas":

By mistake I shared a Wav-file instead of the mp3 that I intended to. I have now replaced it with an mp3 instead (and it has some noise- and click-reduction that was not on the other one).

Trodde att Harry Brandelius mest besjöng den svenske sjömannens hemlängtan. Uppenbarligen hade jag helt fel: Jul i Las Palmas är ju snarast HB goes Johnny Bode. På sitt sätt briljant. Vet du historien bakom Jul i Las Palmas, och när den gavs ut? Tack för en trevlig blogg!

Den här skivan kom rätt sent, på 70-talet, och det spelades in tillsammans med hans dotter. Ett rätt eget projekt, B-sidan är ännu konstigare: "De tusen knarkarnas stad" som handlar om Stockholmstrafiken. Själv betraktade han detta som satir, och jämförde sig själv inte helt träffade med Olof Buckard ("kan Olof Buckard så kan jag"), enligt Ingemar Norlén som träffade honom när han iförd silverkostym (!)framträdde med sina sånger i samband med att plattan kom ut.

Fel av mig!
1969 kom den, har kollat på etiketten.

Mystiken tätnar. Tack för berikande information: Att tänka sig Harry Brandelius i silverkostym framföra en sång med titeln ”De tusen knarkarnas stad” känns fullständigt overkligt!
