1000x Something

Pink champagne might not be the typical drink for a Swedish Midsummer, but then again this is not a typical Midsummer, as I’m celebrating my first song to reach 1.000 plays at Spotify – ”Something”!

Thanks to all who have listened, wishing you all a wonderful Midsummer!

Ny singel – Jag har inte tid att dö

Jag har inte tid att dö – skivomslag

släpps 4 november 2022.

Det är mycket nu… 😎

”Man kan bli gammal eller dö,
ingen är ung för evigt”

De senaste åren har jag flera gånger hamnat i konversationer som går ut på att man har lite krämpor, men alternativet är värre – valet är enkelt.

Livet efter 50 tycks handla mycket om acceptans. För ens eget åldrande och för ens föräldrar, om man har tur nog att ha dem kvar.

Samtidigt som man inser hur man åldras finns så mycket man vill göra! Jobbet snurrar fortfarande på, snabbare än nånsin. Och där ute finns en hel värld att upptäcka. Tur då att hösten kan vara så fin!

Jag har inte tid att dö är skriven med glimten i ögat, som kunde vi få slippa.

Omslagsbilden från underbara Lofoten ”i nyanser av gult och rött”, med den lilla vägen som slingrar sig bort mot ett vintrigt och kargt landskap passade utmärkt här. Alla album är fotograferade av Farbror Pop själv.

New song – Everybody Dies

Everybody Dies by Farbror Pop

Everybody Dies

Everybody Dies is the sixth song in English from ”Uncle Pop”,
 released October 7th, 2022.

When in my early twenties, I met this old man at the bar ”Gröne Jägaren” in Stockholm, standing by the roulette, every now and then crying out loud ”everbody dies!”. I guess it must have made an impression on me, as I still remember it, and one day I had this song in my head, so cheers to him! I guess that he would probably be in his nineties now, if he has survived his heavy drinking, but if not I’ll at least give him that he was right. 😎

The album artwork shows the Norwegian fjord ”Ersfjordbotn”. Like all other album photos it is shot by Farbror Pop himself.

New song – World on Fire

World on Fire by Farbror Pop

World on Fire

World on Fire is the fifth song in English from ”Uncle Pop”,
released March 11th, 2022.

We’ve been aware of the greenhouse effect for a long time now, and time is running out for taking the necessary actions. At that point in time, we instead see the biggest war in Europe since WWII. Let’s hope this will be the turning point where we come together and put out that fire, saving the world for future generations!

The album artwork shows a partial solar eclipse, like an eye in the sky. Like all other album photos it is shot by Farbror Pop himself.

New song – Insomnia

Insomnia by Farbror Pop aka Uncle Pop

Insomnia

Insomnia is the fourth song in English from ”Uncle Pop”,
released September 17th, 2021.

You know that feeling where you are dead tired, you might be half asleep, but you just won’t come to rest? You might think you hear a strange sound, something is itching, your legs are restless or your mind won’t stop spinning.

The night is dark
and I’m wide awake
My restless legs

kicking at the bed
My eyes won’t close

Hey, what’s that sound?
Ghosts are haunting

my restless mind

Then, finally, the morning comes and still dead tired you embrace the chance to get out of that bed, that state of insomnia. Oh, the smell of coffee in the morning! And those first rays of light!

The morning comes
with the morning light
like a saviour

A fresh new day
chase the ghosts away
– what a blessing

The album artwork is from Lofoten, Norway. Looking carefully, you can barely see some ”ghosts” (aka ”storm birds”) in the lightest part.
Like all other album photos it is shot by Farbror Pop himself.

New song – Living

Living by Farbror Pop aka Uncle Pop

Living

Living is the third song in English from ”Uncle Pop”,
released July 9th, 2021.

Living is a song about some characters I have met throughout life,
who all have in common that they seemed to be trapped in something they really disliked.
It might be a bad relation or a job, where they are ”dying”,
rather than leave and aim for a better life.

”Why spend your life on things you hate?
Spend it on the things you love.

The album artwork is a photo from Göteborg, Sweden,
and like all other album photos it is shot by Farbror Pop himself.

New song – Something

Something by Farbror Pop aka Uncle Pop

Something, some things…

Something is the second song in English from ”Uncle Pop”,
released May 28th, 2021.

Sometimes, writing a song is about something specific, like my song ”Cancer” about my childhood friend who passed away last Summer. Sometimes, it’s more about the music, and the lyrics just add flavour to that feeling.

Something is a flirt with the synth music of the 1980’s
and a play with words based on the old English wedding rhyme:

”Something old,
Something new,
Something borrowed,
Something blue”

The album artwork is a photo from Lofoten, Norway,
and like all other album photos it is shot by Farbror Pop himself.
