One of Norway's most underrated vocalists and songwriters, known as the singer / songwriter in good Norwegian, is Hakan Markussen.
And the first song out of the new series Øresnop, or "Frying good songs I like amazingly well" is Hakans wonderful song "Where I Usually Go".
The text is written by Gisle Skeie, melody by Hakan Markussen. Recorded in studio with Kjetil Draugdalen, and produced by guitar hero Runeberg.
The band consisted of the recording of Hakan Markussen on guitar, harmonica and vocals, Rune Berg on guitar, Simen Mæhlum on drums, Asbjørn Ribe on keyboards and Per Amund Solberg on bass.
And it's just so easy in this world that better than this it is NOT.
The voice of Hakan has something Dylanesk to it, and is so unique that it immediately puts his ear. The song is well played and exquisitely produced.
Had it been a bit of justice in this world, so had this song been a giant hit all over the world.
Anyway - now you have the opportunity to hear the song here on the blog, you can also download it! Totally free and legal!
Just play the song, and then use the download link later.
Some browsers (eg Google Chrome) choose to play the song instead of playing it, then open one side eg Firefox and downloading - or google a neat solution ... and voila you have the song on your own computer and can play it all day ... and send it to friends with good taste in music.
