What does music mean lớn you?

Music means so much to me. It’s constantly around me and obviously the music I listen to often reflects the mood that I’m in – or at least the mood I want to be in. So the tracks I play – usually on iTunes or YouTube, as I have khổng lồ confess I haven’t got inkhổng lồ Spotify yet – can be aspirational, to lớn pick me up or to chill me out.

Music gives me a whole lot of energy & at times it’s also very inspiring. I’ll play MHD’s “Afro Trap Part 7 (La Puissance)“ before a workout. Or dust off some Dusty Springfield – tracks lượt thích Burt BacharachandHal David’s “The Look of Love” – when I’m in a more introspective mood. I’m such a sucker for those old love sầu songs with the heavy saxophone and smooth vocals. That trachồng was first recorded for the Casino Royal soundtrack. So it connects to the theme of my mix here — songs from movies.

What was your first meaningful experience ofmusic?

The first meaningful music experience was definitely when my mom played the Papageno intro from Mozart’s “The Magic Flute”. It was directed by Ingemar Bergman. It’s a vivid moment until now & it’s still a fantastic piece of music.

There are so many deep connections to music from my childhood growing up in Sweden. Some of them embarrassing now. It pains me lớn say, but in my early-teens, in the mid-nineties, I loved Rednex’s “Cotton Eye Joe”. We had no idea what the lyrics were about – or who Cotton Eye Joe was – but those banjos & violins và that thumping beat appealed khổng lồ me & my friends at the time. And the bvà was Swedish. It was on one of those compilations that Warner Music put out, maybe Absolute Music 6.

Then there were the typical coming-of-age tracks. “Summer of ‘69” by Bryan Adams and Richard Marx’s “Right Here Waiting”. The soundtraông xã lớn teenage romances…and teenage break-ups.

What part does music play in your day-to-daylife?

It’s a bit of a cliché – but music is like breathing…it’s a constant. The moment I wake up I connect my iPhone to lớn my Bose speaker và play something. I have that obsessive thing where I listen lớn the same tuy nhiên over và over & over again. Until one day I stop.

Some tracks stay with me. Like Red Hot Chili Peppers’ “Under The Bridge”. I read that lead singer Anthony Kiedis wrote it but wouldn’t even giới thiệu it with the b& because he didn’t feel lượt thích it fitted with the rest of their work. Producer Riông xã Rubin intervened. And the rest is history – a timeless trachồng about feelings of alienation from friends but a deep connection khổng lồ where you are. I feel the same connection to lớn Saigon. I think that traông chồng also revealed a more sensitive sầu side lớn the band that helped take them to mainstream success – I think we all have sầu a sensitive sầu side.

At the other kết thúc of the spectrum, from dark to lớn light, is Elton’s “Tiny Dancer”. It’s a classic. It radiates LA sunshine (which is where it was written). The way Elton’s vocals during that era build, and switch tempo, and then swell to lớn a crescenvị are incredible. Truly life-affirming.

What’s the mostunderrated genre of music? And the most overrated?

There’s a big metal scene in Scandinavia. But I could never get inlớn it. Bands lượt thích Rammstein are so abrasive sầu. For me, metal is overrated.

And underrated? Actually, despite hip hop’s current grip on our musical consciousness, there was a time when it was underground – & seemed to have sầu little hope of breaking into the mainstream. Classic albums lượt thích Nas’ “It Was Written” from 1996 didn’t make much of an impact in Sweden. Today, rap and hip hop are everywhere.
