More music to take your Sunday blues away!

After a few days lacking inspiration and struggling with technology (my compu is sad and  blogging from the phone is not an option) I am now back!

I went running for the first time in a while today and almost immediately was inspired for (at least) two new blog posts. So keep a look out during the day!

First this, some more songs for you to get inspired and uplifted during this crappy thing that´s called Sunday. But it doesn´t have to be crappy! Let´s make something out of it!

Loreen – Euphoria. Loreen won the Eurovision Song Contest 2012 with this great song and a wonderful performance. As if that wasn´t enough, she showed that artists matter in the struggle for human rights as she met with and talked to human rights organizations in Azerbijan during her time there.

Icona Pop – We Got The World

Lilla Namo – Höj Volymen (Turn up the volume) Swedish hip hop at its best.

Much love from me to you,
Hanna

    could you tell me what Lilla Namo, Höj Volymen , is about? I haven’t been able to find any translation into english, and I am really interested in the message of the song and if there are anything racial topics discussed in it. Thank you!

  3. Hey! thank you for your comment. I haven´t been able to find a translation to English either, but here is a link to the Swedish lyrics: http://www.songtexte.com/songtext/lilla-namo/hoj-volymen-b54e166.html
    Maybe do some Google translation on the parts you find the most interesting?
    So basically the song is (in my view :)) about Lilla Namo and her friends driving around in her car and getting stopped by the cops for playing the music too loud.
    As you can see, the police is portrayed in pig masks.

    The cop says something along the lines of “oh, you got a nice car, very valuable, do you have roots in Syria? Do you own a small shop or are you just retarded? You can´t fool us, we know you use this car as an unregistered taxi, turn the music down before I call for backup”

    Then it goes on for a bit, the refrain means basically “Turn up the music so loud that it´s gross” Literal translation.

    Then the second verse is discussing why they are stopped by the cops when there are others out there doing much more damage.

    I hope that translation helped a bit, and sorry it´s a bit awkward, the Swedish words get a little weird by literal translation and there´s some slang in there as well 🙂

    Let me know if you need any more help with specific words!
    Take care,
    Hanna
