And I'm still in the middle

So we had the world premiere of "Astronaut" on Swedish Radio P3's "Morgonpasset" on Friday. Wonderful, I think you will all agree????

Well done Salem. I have this on repeat (via P3) at the moment: we've been familiar with this song over the last couple of months since it was performed at the Guldgalan press conference/"Oh No It's Christmas"/Berwaldhallen but it's great to hear the final, recorded version of the song which is so beautiful......

Edit 08.02.09: I'm listening again (link in previous post) and I just love the way the song starts off with the acoustic guitar and then the keyboards come in, I love the echo on Salem's voice and the sparse, spacey production. And most of all I love that little bit in the middle when it stops, then there is a drumbeat and then "she left him to be with me...." and the strings come in and the harmonies and awww....how gorgeous is this song?

You will have to forgive me if I get a bit excitable over the coming weeks!!

In case you didin't know there's a video from Morgonpasset where Salem is playing a song together with Hanna. You can find it both on YouTube and under the link webb-tv at morgonpassets site. Hope you can find it, if you haven't seen it already :) Have a nice day

Hi Linnea - glad you like the song - veeery wonderful indeed :)

Thanks for the info about the Morgonpasset videos, yes I found these and mentioned them in my other post. I think those videos are really funny and they show that Salem has such a great sense of humour!
