Songs I Like

I was just adding some new music to my iPod - actually, some old LTJ Bukem music that I'd recently found again - when I was reminded that I wanted to post one of my favorite new songs here!

It's from a singer named Kate Havnevik - she is a Norwegian singer/songwriter (her songs are in English) and her new song Halo is amazing! I originally saw her perform live when I went to an Air concert, and she was the opener, and I was hooked. Check out her album Melankton; you can listen to it for free on imeem.com. (FWIW, I love imeem - it's completely free, and you can listen to all sorts of music streaming for free, and even create your own playlists to share with friends.)

As an aside, I may start posting a new song here every week; just stuff I like and am into. I love music (hey, I work in the industry) and I'm always delighted when I stumble upon something I really enjoy!

Anyway this is her new song Halo off of her second album. The melody is wonderful, and the lyrics are great - I think everyone has felt like this in at least one point of their lives. I hope you like it, and are all having a great week!


Halo - Kate Havnevik

Who do you love, when love is gone?
Who do you hunger in this great unknown?
Memories of me will fade soon
& you'll find someone new

See everyone halo bright in beauty
See everyone arrayed for you to try
You're not alone in being alone
Six billion people – one of them's right for you

Who do you mean when you change your tone?
Who do you dream of when you're half asleep with one eye open?
You'll become your life soon
& I won't be in your way

See everyone halo bright in beauty
See everyone arrayed for you to try
You're not alone in being alone
Six billion people - one of them's right for you

Who do you see when you stare into space?
Who do you seek out in cyberspace?

See everyone halo bright in beauty
See everyone arrayed for you to try
You're not alone in being alone
Six billion humans - one of them's right for you

I love the idea of you posting one song every week! I'm always up for new tracks and artists, so thanks for this reference :)

I need to update my music!! When my computer was dieing I saved the music on a flash drive...

but now it is all just a jumbled mess that needs organized into play lists again!!! I should be doing that instead of surfing back through posted comments!!!

Congrats on your new house. Exciting time for you.

I also have seen Air in concert, and since she opened for them, I bet this song is a winner!

I'll have to check her out! I just became OBSESSED with this british band that I have discovered called Scouting For Girls. I love, love their sillines, their upbeat often strange lyrics, and their just generally happy-go-lucky beat. They even have a song called I wish I were James Bond.

Love it!
