Gyllene Tider goes ABBA

soldansPer revealed the tracklist of Gyllene Tider’s new compilation album, ”Soldans på din grammofon” and it turns out to be a double CD and a coloured double LP. Check the tracklist below.

You’ll find 4 bonus tracks on the album. One of the songs, ”45 minuter motorväg” is a leftover from GT’s latest record, ”Dags att tänka på refrängen”. As we already informed you earlier, you’ll find 2 versions of ”Henry, dansa inte disco!” on the album: a live one from 1980 recorded at the rehearsal studio and a new version.

One more interesting bonus track will see the light of day: a cover version of ABBA’s ”S.O.S.” from 1980 recorded at the rehearsal studio. If you are wondering how ABBA-ish GT can sound, you should listen to their cover in this video of Gyllene Tider’s live performance at Rock 300 /Karlskrona, 2nd August, 1980/ – God, I was just a half-year-old girl back then. 🙂 (The cover is from 20:55, but it is worth watching the whole video.):

Gyllene Tider at Allsång på Skansen

According to Aftonbladet, Gyllene Tider will most probably be one of the guests at Allsång på Skansen. SVT has not yet confirmed the list of artists.

Allsång på Skansen (Sing-along at Skansen) is a Swedish show held at Skansen, Stockholm. SVT broadcasts it on Tuesdays between 8 pm and 9 pm CET every summer. The audience (10 000 – 25 000 people) is supposed to sing-along with musical guests to well-known Swedish songs.

This year’s Allsång på Skansen premieres on 25th June (lasts until 13th August). Looking at the tour agenda, the Fabulous Five are free each Tuesday, but might be busy with travelling from one place to another, so as the GT tour starts on 5th July and ends on 10th August, the guys – if they really take part in this year’s program – may appear at the show on 25th June, 2nd July or 13th August. We’ll let you know about the exact date once it is announced.

Gyllene Tider already appeared in this program in 2004 and Per also took part in it in 2003 and 2007. Here are some of their performances at those shows:

Gyllene Tider plays with fire

You might remember our article from some days ago in which we asked you to vote on GT for a fireworks medley in Norrköping. The result of the voting is out… aaaaaand people will hear Gyllene Tider’s greatest hits during the fireworks on Friday, 16th August! More than 2000 readers took part and 34% of the votes went for our golden guys. Bruce Springsteen had 25% and David Guetta 22% of the votes. The remaining 19% went for Robbie Williams and Rihanna.

Leka med elden will most probably not included in the medley, but it’s still nice. Click here for the English version.

Thanx for voting and enjoy the ”show” if you’re in Norrköping that day!

Eurovision with Dea Norberg and Magnus Börjeson

I have to realize it every year that Eurovision song contest is not for me. This year I hoped it was going to be a bit different, since it was organized by Sweden (last year’s winner: Loreen – Euphoria). Well, it didn’t make much difference.

Malta’s performance was starting with an ukulele, a bit like Gyllene Tider’s Tuffa tider, but it turned out very soon that Gianluca’s song (”Tomorrow”) has nothing to do with GT. (You can check it here.)

Dea Norberg is a real veteran Eurovision back-up singer, as this was her ninth time providing back-up vocals. This year she was supporting Robin, Sweden’s contestant (”You”). Here you can watch how it went. Some days ago a video with Robin’s back-up singers appeared on YouTube and in the short interview Dea even says hi (at 1:55) to all Roxers out there.

During the pre-show we could see another important person of the Rox gang, Magnus Börjeson. He appeared there with Six Drummers, doing a fantastic cover version of Robin’s ”You”. You can check their act here, at 21:35. Without no doubt, this was the best and most unique performance to me during the whole show last night. 😉

The winner of Eurovision 2013 is by the way Denmark, Emmelie de Forest with ”Only Teardrops”.
