Norwegian Airlines: The Sound of Scandinavia

16 Mar

Norwegian Airlines: The Sound of Scandinavia

Howdy folks!

Thought it might be nice to help you blow away those Wednesday blues by giving you a listen to a fantastic Spotify playlist I’ve just created for my chums at Norwegian Airlines!

As Norwegian offers incredible deals on flights to Scandinavia (in their comfy, state-of-the-art planes), I thought I’d tailor my musical choices to include only acts from the Nordic region… And what a lot of top tunes there were to choose from!

As well as pop classics from the likes of A-ha and Abba (of course!), I’ve included rockier stuff from The Hives, modern electronica by Mew and surely the best Eurovision winner of recent years from Norway’s own Alexander Rybak!

Here’s my playlist in full…

1. The Sun Always Shines on T.V. – a-ha (Norway)

2. Lay All Your Love On Me – Abba (Sweden)

3. Move Your Feet – Junior Senior (Denmark)

4. I’d Rather Dance With You – Kings Of Convenience (Norway)

5. 1999 – Suburban Kids With Biblical Names (Sweden)

6. Fascination – Alphabeat (Denmark)

7. Fairytale – Alexander Rybak (Norway)

8. Attention Stockholm – Virna Lindt (Sweden)

9. Beach – Mew (Denmark)

10. Geordie La Forge – The Low Frequency in Stereo (Norway)

11. Hate To Say I Told You So – The Hives (Sweden)

12. Beat City – The Raveonettes (Denmark)

13. Turn Back Time – Aqua (Denmark)

14. S.O.S. – Abba (Sweden)

15. Take On Me – a-ha (Norway)
