One of the few songs on my personal "Halloween Mix" that's actually topical.
I can't ever tell with these 70s videos if the vocals are dubbed or live and I'm not going to try any harder to find a definite live one of this song. Anyway blame hj for getting this dang song stuck in my head all day yesterday.
I bet a sorcerer would pledge to the WGOM. Why haven't you?
C'mon, cheaptoy, that's 2 metal ("metal"? "metal?"?) bands in one week. On Pledge Drive week no less! You can't say your interests aren't represented.
Dang near close to the best possible pop song.
Pet Shop Boys cover, Sweden, 2004.
With Jill Johnson, on Jill's Veranda, Somewhere in Sweden, Late 2015/Early 2016
(Here billed as Annika Norlin, which probably is easier because she sings songs in English as "Hello Saferide" and in Swedish as "Säkert!", but as Säkert! did an album of English translations of her originally Swedish songs.)
So until I found this, I hadn't seen anything visual from Norlin worth sharing. This makes up for that and more. Fantastic performance, awesome song. If she's not up for more writing in English, an album of Americana self-covers a la Bonnie 'Prince' Billy's Sings Greatest Palace Music would be equally cool. She hasn't toured the US since I learned of her. Would I drive to Chicago if she did again that was the nearest show? Probably, and this video strengthens that.
Happy birthday, Tiger.
Just a few fleeting moments of summer left. Winter is coming. Let the Swedes soothe you.
Our boys couldn't compete. Complete outplayed for about 176 minutes. Hopefully baseball will be better.
