Lyckan i en ask – Music and Lyrics


Lyckan i en ask

Jag förutspår en tid, då mitt VISA-kort inte bestämmer vad jag känner.

Den måste finnas till, en tid lyckan vilar på ett djup.

Jag tänker att jag vill förändra mitt eget beteende främst av alla.

Lyckan, lyckan i en ask, som kom på posten,

när du satt och grubbla över livet,

livet som är tomt, men fylls så lätt när du ser allt som glittrar.

Mina uppgifter samlas in, reklamen ska vara riktad och felfri.

Så sakta jag lindas in, i tomma drömmar som fyller upp mitt liv.

Lyckan, lyckan i en ask, som kom på posten,

när du satt och grubbla över livet,

livet som är tomt, men fylls så lätt när du ser allt som glittrar.

Lyckan, lyckan i en ask, som kom på posten,

när du satt och grubbla över livet,

livet som är tomt, men fylls så lätt när du ser allt som glittrar, allt som glittrar.


Lyckan i en ask – New video uploaded on #youtube

Lyckan i en ask, a song in Swedish about consumption, “Joy in a box”.

Recorded when pregnant with my baby girl!


Lyckan i en ask, en sång som handlar om att köpa sin lycka och konsumtion. Lyssna på Sadness Theory på Spotify! När jag spelade in klippet var jag gravid med min tjej!

The last gig #kulturernaskarneval

So how was my last gig at Kulturernas karneval? Don’t worry, it is definitely not my last gig.

It was wonderful. 

I performed together with my husband, which was very successful and we also had some lovely audience in the Botanical garden. We actually had quite nice weather (so far no Spring/Summer at all).

And don’t forget you can always listen to Sadness Theory on Spotify.

The Cure – Lullaby

This is an amazing song from a really good band, The Cure. So Goth, so poetic, so epic. The video is also cool and kind of creepy:


on candystripe legs spiderman comes
softly through the shadow of the evening sun
stealing past the windows of the blissfully dead
looking for the victim shivering in bed
searching out fear in the gathering gloom and
suddenly! a movement in the corner of the
room! and there is nothing i can do when i
realise with freight that the spiderman is having
me for dinner tonight

quietly he laughs and shaking his head creeps
closer now closer to the foot of the bed and
softer than shadow and quicker than flies his
arms are all around me and his tongue in my
eyes “be still be calm be quiet now my precious
boy don’t struggle like that or i will only love
you more for it’s much too late to get away or
turn on the light the spiderman is having you
for dinner tonight”



and i feel like i’m being eaten by a thousand
million shivering furry holes and i know that in
the morning i will wake up in the shivering cold
and the spiderman is always hungry…

Lana Del Rey – Summertime sadness

Lana Del Rey – Summertime Sadness

Just a wonderful song of a cool artist. Love her deep dark voice 🙂 and of course the sadness.

No, I don’t present you the latest artists. My main focus is being on the other side, I’m focusing on producing music. But of course I need the input and some artists are very inspiring.

Some lyrics:

Kiss me hard before you go
Summertime sadness
I just wanted you to know
That, baby, you’re the best

I got my red dress on tonight
Dancing in the dark in the pale moonlight
Done my hair up real big beauty queen style
High heels off, I’m feeling alive

Oh, my God, I feel it in the air
Telephone wires above are sizzling like a snare
Honey, I’m on fire, I feel it everywhere
Nothing scares me anymore

// Lana Del Rey- Summertime sadness.

Djup röst och melankoli, kan det bli bättre? Nej, trodde inte det 🙂

Inget nytt men mitt fokus är att producera inte konsumera. Och inspiration behövs ju där också.
