Eek! Where does the time go? This is the fifth year here on this blog that I’m writing about “Spil Dansk” (Play Danish Music) Day!
Which keen readers will remember is celebrated on the last Thursday of October… Want to trawl through my old posts on the subject? Here they are:
2011 SPIL DANSK!
Today – Thursday – the only music you’ll hear on Danish radio is by Danish groups (some of which also sing in English), Danish songwriters, Danish producers etc. But if you’re interested in Hit Lists and what you’d normally expect to hear around these parts – and what people actually buy and add to their collections – then take a look at Hitlisten.nu where you’ll find every official Danish list.
And what I’m I currently listening to? Well – selvfølgelig – the latest album from Magtens Korridorer! Where my sweetie friend R is a guitarist… It’s called “Før alting bliver nat” (Before everything turns to night). Magtens K. are nominated again (again, again, again) for this years Danish Music Awards. This time in the category “Best Live Act”. Yep, no doubt about that – they’ve been called Folkets Rockband (“The Danish People’s Rockband”)! Two thumbs up! Or should that be – as in their logo – one thumb up and two fingers forward?
Here’s one of their quieter offerings from the new album, complete with beautiful images of Copenhagen by night and, hey, even the lyrics – so you can practise your Danish and sing along!
Happy ‘Spil Dansk‘ Day! Remember to turn it up to 11!
