Re: Svealand // WV 94 // Adolf Fredriks Musikklasser // I Morr'n Är Det Bröllopskalas //

We're going with something utterly, unmistakeably Swedish for WV 94. A lovely little song written especially for Crown Princess Victoria and her (at the time, soon-to-be) husband Prince Daniel, performed the day before their wedding back in 2010.

Re: Svealand // WV 95 // Dalarnas Spelmansförbund // Äppelbo Gånglåt //

Continuing on with something yet again unmistakeably Swedish. This tune, also referred to as "Gånglåt från Äppelbo", is often played during Midsummer and is a staple in the fiddler/folk scene. I've loved it ever since I was a kid.

Re: Svealand // WV 101 // Ted Gärdestad // Jag Vill Ha En Egen Måne // lyrics translation inside

The 99th :svea: entry, a great little classic:

"Jag Vill Ha En Egen Måne" - Ted Gärdestad

JAG VILL HA EN EGEN MÅNE
Du har då aldrig trott på tårar
Det passar inte för en karl
Om man är över femton vårar
Finns inga känslor kvar

Kan du förstå två våta kinder
De torkar lika snabbt igen
Man rår ej för att tårar rinner
När man har mist sin vän

Jag vill ha en egen måne
Jag kan åka till
Där jag kan glömma att du lämnat mig
Jag kan sitta på min måne
Och göra vad jag vill
Där stannar jag tills allting ordnat sig

Du tror du vet hur allt ska vara
Du vet när allting passar sig
Utom när jag ska förklara
Hur jag känner mig

Du bryr dig inte om mig mera
Och det har tagit mig så hårt
Du kan väl aldrig acceptera
Att någonting är svårt

Jag vill ha en egen måne
Som jag kan åka till
Där jag kan glömma att du lämnat mig
Jag kan sitta på min måne
Och göra vad jag vill
Där stannar jag tills allting ordnat sig

Jag vill ha en egen måne
Jag kan åka till
Där jag kan glömma att du lämnat mig
Jag kan sitta på min måne
Och göra vad jag vill
Där stannar jag till allting ordnat sig
I WANT A MOON OF MY OWN
You never did believe in tears
It's just not fitting for a man
If you're more than fifteen years old
There are no emotions left

Can you understand two wet cheeks
They'll dry just as fast again
You can't help the trickle of tears
When you have lost your friend

I want a moon of my own
I can go to
Where I can forget that you left me
I can sit on my moon
And do whatever I want
I'll stay there until everything's alright

You think you know how it all should be
You know when things are appropriate
Except when I try to explain
How I feel inside

You don't care about me anymore
And that has hit me so hard
You probably can't just accept
That something's difficult

I want a moon of my own
That I can go to
Where I can forget that you left me
I can sit on my moon
And do whatever I want
I'll stay there until everything's alright

I want a moon of my own
I can go to
Where I can forget that you left me
I can sit on my moon
And do whatever I want
I'll stay there until everything's alright

Re: Svealand // WV 102 // Björn Isfält // Ouvertyr //

The entry for 102 and the 100th :svea: entry is something very dear to me, filled with lots of childhood nostalgia and warm, fuzzy feelings. The opening music to one of my absolute favorite movies growing up, the wonderful Resan till Melonia. I wanted my 100th entry to be something that was very special to me. Our WV 20 entry was also from this movie.

Re: Svealand // WV 105 // Månegarm // Vaggvisa //

Back in WV 28 I held a secret NF with two quite similar Månegarm songs. Hemkomst (Homecoming) was the winner. The other song, Vaggvisa (Lullaby), was subsequently put on the list of future entries, not knowing quite when it would be a good time to send it. [MENTION=12033]Nicholas123[/MENTION] once told me that Hemkomst was his favorite Svealand entry. Now that it's his last edition, I figured it was the perfect time to finally send Vaggvisa to honor his time here with us. A lullaby to send him off. xheart

"Vaggvisa" - Månegarm

Re: Svealand // WV 109 // Sarek // Nu Grönskar Det //

The entry for WV 109 is a classic song every Swede knows! :D

"Nu Grönskar Det" - Sarek

xlove

NU GRÖNSKAR DET

Nu grönskar det i dalens famn
Nu doftar äng och lid
Kom med, kom med på vandringsfärd
I vårens glada tid
Var dag är som en gyllene skål
Till brädden fylld med vin
Så drick min vän, drick sol och doft
Ty dagen den är din

Så drick min vän, drick sol och doft
Ty dagen den är din

Långt bort från stadens gråa hus
Vi glatt vår kosa styr
Och följer vägens vita band
Mot ljusa äventyr
Med öppna ögon låt oss se
På livets rikedom
Som gror och sjuder överallt
Där våren går i blom

Som gror och sjuder överallt
Där våren går i blom

Nu grönskar det i dalens famn
Nu doftar äng och lid
Kom med, kom med på vandringsfärd
I vårens glada tid
Var dag är som en gyllene skål
Till brädden fylld med vin
Så drick min vän, drick sol och doft
Ty dagen den är din

Så drick min vän, drick sol och doft
Ty dagen den är din

Så drick min vän drick sol och doft
Ty dagen den är din
NOW IT'S BURSTING WITH GREENERY

Now the valley's bursting with greenery
The fragrant meadows and hills
Come with, come with on a wandering journey
In this joyous time of spring
Each day is like a golden bowl
Filled to the brim with wine
So drink my friend, drink sun and scent
For the day is thine

So drink my friend, drink sun and scent
For the day is thine

Far away from town's gray houses
We gladly steer our course
Following the road's white markings
Towards bright adventures
With eyes wide open let us see
All the riches of life
That grow and simmer everywhere
Where spring goes in full bloom

That grow and simmer everywhere
Where spring goes in full bloom

Now the valley's bursting with greenery
The fragrant meadows and hills
Come with, come with on a wandering journey
In this joyous time of spring
Each day is like a golden bowl
Filled to the brim with wine
So drink my friend, drink sun and scent
For the day is thine

So drink my friend, drink sun and scent
For the day is thine

So drink my friend, drink sun and scent
For the day is thine

Re: Svealand // WV 109 // Sarek // Nu Grönskar Det // lyrics translation inside

I added full lyrics translation to the song post above! :) In essence the song is about this time of year, towards the end of spring when nature is in full bloom and how wonderful nature looks and smells in all its lush greenery. :)
