Mid-20s Malaise

Struggling against the inevitable since 1986!

Ugens Sang: Juvelen – Don’t Mess

I know I kind of overload this thing with camp Scandinavian pop, but I can’t help it: it’s just too damn good. This Swedish song has been one of my favourites this year. In fact, it’s currently my ringtone. I never want to answer my phone because I’m too busy grooving! I quite like the verses; I appreciate the Prince-style funk thing he’s got going on. But, sweet baby Jesus, it’s that main synth line that does it to me. It’s a thing of wonder. I imagine Juvelen (“the jewel”, or Jonas Pettersson to his mother) leapt up with joy when he wrote as David Bowie surely must have when he stumbled on the riff for Rebel Rebel.

    What a discovery. Prince. Scissor Sisters. I can’t believe I hadn’t heard of them earlier. Thanks!

    They’ve played “Hanna” practically nonstop over here. I Prefer “Watch Your Step” though.
