Check out this wonderful band from Sweden. They play Folk/Pop/Acoustic music and sound like a mixture of Simon & Garfunkel, The Smiths, Bob Dylan and ABBA. All their lyrics [though they have a very important and powerful message] are in Swedish but the melodies sort of speak for themselves, so don't worry about not understanding them!

Some of their best songs:

"Redan Idag" ["Already Today"]

"Nej" ["No"]
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EafqqTk-xr0


"Ingen Vill Veta Var Du Köpt Din Tröja" ["Nobody Wants To Know Where You Bought Your Shirt"]
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-vACnVGoupA


Also check out their MySpace if you want:

I've been a fan of them for about 2 years now. They're amazing :)

I tried my hand at translating the song "Nej" ["No"] before. It's not literally translated word by word because I wanted it to rhyme in English as well, but it's still the same message. Not finished with it though but here's a draft:

"Nej/No"
Texaco station, Lundin's aluminum
Then going uphill
Keep moving on, keep moving on
All that we've done here
All that we said here
All we believed here
Will disappear but have no fear

Those who think that home has to be where you live
Have never been with me
Have never been with me
Life is too short for BBQ's and watching sports
There must be something more
That they never saw before

No and I said no and I said no
I'll never ever ever come back
To your town, to your lives
I'll never ever ever come back
To whom you wanted me to be
I'll never ever ever come back
To their town, to their lives
I'll never ever ever come back

[2nd verse not yet translated]

No and I said no and I said no
I'll never ever ever come back
To your town, to your lives
I'll never ever ever come back
To whom you wanted me to be
I'll never ever ever come back
To their town, to their lives
I'll never ever ever come back

Keep on driving, I don't care if we end up dying
I lived for a second
I lived for a second
What you showed me from your Mazda 323
Will always stay with me
Will always stay with me

No and I said no and I said no
I'll never ever ever come back
To your town, to your lives
I'll never ever ever come back
To whom you wanted me to be
I'll never ever ever come back
To their town, to their lives
I'll never ever ever come back

===================

Hope that makes it easier for you guys :D

The music video for the song "Nej" ["No"] was filmed in the suburb where I grew up! That square where they are at is by this shopping center we used to go to all the time!

Thank you for the translation Eru! :-D That's so cool!
If you love them, you should check out one of my all time favorite latin bands. The name of the band is 'La Oreja de Van Gogh' and they're from Spain. The music is very catchy and melodic :)

La Playa(The Beach)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ALYMyHP0aQE
Dulce Locura(Sweet Insanity)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mJo5aQFll00
Muñeca de Trapo(Rag Doll)

I'm going to start a thread about them :)
