Whatever it takes #Edenroad

This is a song I wrote around 2005 called Whatever it takes. The song is performed with my duo, me and Frida, Edenroad.

I just love to arrange some of my songs in this way that Frida sings the lead and I do the chorus. Frida has also let me sing the lead in some of her songs.

//En av mina låtar som jag spelar med Edenroad, Whatever it takes. Frida sjunger lead på denna även om jag har skrivit låten och på samma sätt har vi gjort med några av hennes.

Inspiration from the people around me…

The inspiration to write music can come from the people around me as well as my one life and experiences.

When my sister took a break from her life and traveled I got very inspired so when I was about to see her again I wrote the song “Homecoming queen“. Ofcourse as always I weave reality together with poetry and imagination, so everything is not literal. One of the verses says:

You’re the homecoming queen, you’re all made of dreams, a dream of leaving everything behind you.

Homecoming queen, recorded in my living room:

// Låten “Homecoming queen” är inspirerat av min syster, när hon gjorde en längre resa. Det som händer runt om, bland människor jag har omkring mig, kan vara en inspirationskälla till låtarna jag skriver. Inspirationskällan vävs ihop med poesiliknande texter och en del fantasi så låten i sig behöver inte spegla verkligheten exakt.

Jag spelade in låten en dag hemma i vardagsrummet och la upp på youtube. Bara så där!
