Odd

After finding that many of the singers in Venn record in English, I was pleased to find a guy who writes and sings i norsk. Odd Nordstoga (he sings near the end of the song) comes from Telemark and charms people with his strange accent. His breakout album in 2004, Luring, became a big hit and he went on to record lots of good stuff. His music is a blend of Norwegian folk and alternative pop... it's quite nice. The song below was the most played song on the radio in 2004. It's called "Kveldssong for deg og meg" ("Evening song for you and me") and it's about hanging out, and it features a squawking pig. Huh.




Here's a weird fan video that helpfully has words and visual cues. I'm learning this on guitar now for laughs. And for training.
