Few but infamous

by Evans Yonson

Barcelona – In one of those walks in Copenhagen, I chanced upon these guys singing a happy tune. The Danes are one of the happiest people in the world. They know how to party and when to party. And they really party. Probably one of their innate talents is singing. Take for example, Michael Learns to Rock, Aqua, and my favorite soloist, Rasmus Seebach.

My introduction to Danish music appreciation started when I first heard the 2000 Eurovision album. Denmark first joined the continent’s Eurovision in 1957 but has only won twice since then. First win was in London 1963 with the song Dansevise  by Grethe and Jorgen Ingmann. And the second win came 37 years after in 2000 with the Olsen Brothers singing Fly on the wings of love in Stockholm.

A Viking singing a tune. A happy tune.

In the summer night
When the moon shines bright
Feeling love forever
And the heat is on
When the daylight is gone
Still – happy together
There is just one more thing I would like to add
She is the greatest love I’ve ever had
Fly on the wings of love
Fly baby fly
Reaching the stars above
Touching the sky
And as time goes by
There is a lot to try
And I’m feeling lucky
In the softest sand
Smiling hand in hand
Love is all around me
There’s just one more thing I would like to add
She is the greatest love I’ve ever had
Fly on the wings of love
Fly baby fly
Reaching the stars above
Touching the sky
