On a Cheerier Note

A friend sent me a link to this. And I am hooked. Alphabeat is a Scandinavian band continuing the great tradition of funloving Scandanavian pop bands. The song is simple and unremarkable, but it's so CHEERFUL. And the video? RELENTLESSLY, GENUINELY cheerful. The singers' expressions are joyous and uncomplicated. The bright colors that switch around are fun. The dancers are highly watchable. There are cardigans and a mettalic lavender lamé dress. Everyone looks freshly scrubbed and wholesome and high on life. It's completely bizarre.

I love it.


  1. Oh--you are right! It is fantastic. What a nice break from the general heroin chic....

  2. I'm glad you like it! I find the music I listen to can really effect my mind set and I make an effort to keep cheerful music readily at hand - it can help on a bad day or make a good day better!
