Hi! Alexander Rybak is with you on the Radio 7, this is the show “My music – my life”. I’ve heard a lot of music in my life. I remember my first melody which my mother bought me when I was young:)) It was “Ooops, I did it again” by Britney Spears. When I was a child I only listened to classical music so I was surprised a lot by the fact that my mother bought me pop-music. I didn’t expect that she would invite me to this world, because she always forced me to practice. So Britney Spears “Ooops, I did it again” is my very first pop-song. Let’s listen to it with me now.

So, I performed my favorite song of her – Old Maple. And today I’ll listen to it together with you with pleasure.

It’s very simple, funny. And when you’re listening to it, it’s easy to live. Blink 182 “All the small things”.

I can’t listen to this song without starting crying, because it was my first song when one girl left me. I couldn’t forget her for 4-5 years. When I listen to this song, I always feel so sad. But it doesn’t mean that it’s a bad song, in fact the opposite, it’s one of the most beautiful songs in the world. “When we dance” Sting.
