We’ve been meaning to write about this for a few weeks now. So we’ll do so now. Scandinavia has spawned a brand new gem of music. A song that starts off as a heartfelt ballad, chugs along as a heart wrenching pop/dance melancholic melody, and plays out with a crescendo of wails, dance beats and an empathising choir. And all this in just three minutes! The song is called ‘Someday’ and it’s delivered by the almighty Hera Bjork!

 

 

Hera is from Iceland, where she’s long enjoyed a career in music, having released several albums, and also as a television presenter. She was a backing vocalist at last year’s Eurovision Song Contest for Euroband, and she actually tried to represent Denmark at this year’s Eurovision. She entered ‘Someday’ into their Melodi Grand Prix, but unfortunately only came 2nd – to a Ronan Keating sound-a-like singing a Ronan Keating composed song. Oh dear. It’s connotations to failure shouldn’t stick though, as the song is a stand alone triumph – our favourite song of the year so far. It sounds like the team of in-house Disney composers had been asked to create a Schlager song. ‘Someday’ has everything we want in a Schlager anthem – an unforgettable melody, a piano led intro that morphs into an uptempo beat driven epic – and all with emotional lyrics about distress – ‘’sorrow….there has been sorrow’’ being our particular highlight.
