Norwegian Mood.


When something happens in a foreign country, especially if it's something dramatic like what's happening right now in Norway, often I start thinking about which good things and feelings that country and its people gave me. Sometimes it's just a postcard memory from a holiday. Sometimes it's food. Sometimes it's something more romantic. Most time, it's a mix of emotions strictly related with music, movies, books, creativity. Don't know if this is a good habit or something sick. But today it happened again. So, this is a very personal selection of 20 norwegian songs/artists that I like (sometimes, that I do love). Mostly alternative, indie rock and electronica. A bit of jazz. A little of classical music, too. No metal. I know scandinavian metal rocks over the world, but - honestly - I'm not a great aficionado of Dimmu Borgir or Burzum. Yet.

A tiny little message of solidarity (and thanks) from Spotirama to Norway people.
Hope you enjoy.
