Doktor Kosmos – så jävla bra!

Nu kommer en hyllning till bandet Doktor Kosmos med frontmannen Uje Brandelius och deras bra-iga musik.

Den här låten sjunger jag på nu, så jävla bra!

Och apropå hyllning så gjorde min man, Magnus Backström, en cover på Rymdeman, Rymdeman:

Den gillar jag också, skarpt!

// Listen to these songs of the Swedish band of Doktor Kosmos, singing mainly in Swedish with really fun but also deep lyrics. And if you don’t know Swedish I think you still can enjoy the music.

The second song is a cover made by my hubbie Magnus, really good, don’t you think?



Personal Jesus (cover)

Inspired by Johnny Cash’s cover of Depeche Mode “Personal Jesus” I made this cover and recorded it for you!

I really enjoy the meaning and the lyrics of the song. I was inspired to do this cover after a visit to my sister when we started talking about the song and what the meaning of it was.

I believe it is very developing to do a cover of a great song, it can be a good learning experience. I normally play my own songs so this was really fun.

// Jag tycker väldigt mycket om denna låt och dess mening. Efter att jag besökte min syster i höstas så blev jag inspirerad av att göra denna cover eftersom vi just diskuterade låten.

Att göra en cover kan vara väldigt utvecklande känner jag, att prova på en annan låtskrivares låt för en gångs skull. Annars blir det ju mest mina egna kompositioner!

Make your own cover

Why not make a cover of a song you like?

Me and my husband are both into music and we made a cover of Britney Spears Toxic:

The original is far more a dance party track, right? So we made it a kind of the opposite, very acoustic with only an acoustic guitar and song. A homemade video on our couch with just our normal camera. No airplane, no sexy air hostess outfit, no nothing. So very us. So far from the original:

But we had a lots of fun and I think a lot of friends (near and far) enjoyed the video and the cover that we played live sometimes.

// Kanske lite inspiration för att göra en cover på en låt som du gillar? Du behöver din kreativitet och fantasi och kanske lite hjälp från en vän. Du kan göra en video eller bara en inspelning på din mobil. Nu finns det många möjligheter att göra egna inspelningar utan att behöva ha mycket utrustning. Med tex en smartphone kan man både spela in ljud eller filma i bra upplösning.

Made of things – Lyrics and video

Made of things

Are we made of things, things that surround us, inside and out?
Are we made of dreams, dreaming you’re a superstar, fame over night?
What do you believe in, praying to a Gucci God, who made a bag?
What’s on your mind, update yourself before it’s too late.

I feel so empty inside,
But I shake I shake my bag

One day you’re in, next day you’re out and there’s no doubt.
Have you heard the news, who made it all the way to the stars?
Are they happy now, shining in the light of precious fame?
Wanna feel like them, buy their brand, it spells like joy.

I feel so empty inside,
But I shake I shake my bag

Cold emptiness, things that surround us, inside and out?
