Alexander Rybak – Cover version of “Money” by Samsaya – Reviews

Rybak was a clever rapper.
Alexander started the day with «Money» the single from 2009 and has translated the lyrics from English to Norwegian. This was anything but what Samsaya had expected.
– It was a super-surprise. He had translated it to “Penger er ikke alt” (Money ain’t all), and it was so cool. He had really put work into that song. I got an incredibly good feeling, and he was a very clever rapper. Super-good and surprising start,- says Samsaya to TV2.

Alexander Rybak – Money – Dice 4

Alexander as rapper? Well, that is not the most successful part of this version, but he brings welcomed sunshine into the the refrain where the original is darker and more edgy- it almost becomes better and more uplifting. A plus for a good Norwegian translation, but put a hoodie on next time you want to play b-boy Alexander…..

Dagbladet.no 05.04.2014 Øyvind Rønning
Alexander Rybak – Money (Samsaya/Lindal) – Dice 4
Samsaya is probably the biggest challenge for the TV-viewers, mostly because so few of her songs are known to the general public. Alexander Rybak started the party as rapper, just the like the Indian-Norwegian artist started, with a synth and without a fiddle – and he shall be honoured for doing something else other than what’s expected. “De fattigste av oss er de som bare har penger” (Because the poorest of us, are those who just have money) sounds like an okay translation of a song originally written in English. Rybak radiates as usual, the refrain is catchy and suddenly he is Samsaya’s “little brother in Norway” as she burst out thrilled.

Samsaya from “Hver gang vi møtes” 2014 on TV2

“Music is an architect with the power to build bridges. It meets you at the dance floor but it still makes you think and connects your heart.”

Influenced by everyone from Mary J. Blige and TLC to OutKast and famed Indian singer Asha Bhosle, Samsaya, whose name means “doubt” in Hindi, has “always questioned everything,” writing reactionary, iconoclastic lyrics as a child. “At 12, I heard Dinah Washington’s ‘I’m Mad About the Boy’ and hearing that trumpet-type voice, something happened to me,” recalls the singer. “Religious lyrics and traditional music didn’t touch me. This moved me.” Eschewing her parents’ pleas to play classical Indian music in favor of more beat-driven tracks, Samsaya released Shedding Skin, her debut album, in 2004, and has released a steady stream of singles since.

Alexander Rybak – Cover version of “Kan eg gjørr någe med det” by Sigvart Dagsland

Touched by Rybak
Alexander Rybak concludes the tribute with the 2001 song “Kan eg gjørr någe med det?” and his version touches Sigvart.

– When he did the violin intro and started on the high tones, I was very touched. He has a tremendous musicality. I recognize myself a bit in Alexander, even though we come from very different places, but we click with each other on musicality. It was a beautiful moment, I think. (Ref. TV2.no)

REVIEWS

Translated by Tessa Lande. Revised by Katie Anderson.

Dagbladet: Dice 6  (Dagsland/Roalkvam):

An appropriate contribution to the debate after Sigvart has spoken about his reaction to the church’s opposition to homosexuality. And – it is no coincidence that Rybak is the final performer.

This is going to be the best, and he is serious about it! Rybak cultivates interaction and the combination of fiddle, vocals and the simplistic arrangement, and puts all of himself into the song. We have never heard him sing this way – sorely and with strong empathy. The gypsy inspired fiddle playing is both virtuosic and beautiful, and underlines the seriousness and drama. Sigvart claims that he is not easily moved, and here he balances narrowly. A grandiose finale!

VG: Dice 4   (Stein Østbø)
Alexander sings powerfully, but a little bit staccato. He still gives the song an additional coat of naked melancholy through his fiddle. The arrangement is beautiful, dramatic, dark blue and quite a bit sensitive, without ever tending to emotion.

Sigvart Dagsland from “Hver gang vi møtes” 2014 on TV2

Vocalist and composer from Stavanger, living in Bergen. Sigvart Dagsland is known for his good singing voice, his social commitment, his good songs and serious lyrics in dialect. Less well known is his distinctive sense of humour. This composition has led to Sigvart Dagsland releasing albums of very different character, ranging from solemn hymns to unbridled humour, but everything is done with a convincing seriousness. He has released 18 solo albums, and holds 30-50 concerts across the country each year. Awarded “Prøysenprisen” in 2009. Nominated for a “Spellemann” (grammy) three times in the pop category and received it once. Also nominated for Hit Awards. Each new Dagsland album sells on average to gold. His began as a boy soprano with a candle in his hand in the Stavanger Cathedral Choir when he was 12, formed the band “Tro og Liv ” in 1982, joined the revue group “Løgnaslaget” for some years. Has been a backing singer for several artists and has participated in the Norwegian ESC as both backing singer and artist.

His 20th anniversary as a recording artist was celebrated in autumn 2005 and spring 2006 with three anniversary concerts in Stavanger, Oslo and Bergen. The concert lasted three hours, and they were all sold out, and they offered a wide range of guest soloists who have been involved in any musical context throughout his career.

Alexander Rybak – Cover version of “Smooth Escape” by Simone Eriksrud

– “The guy is a firework of a performer, and I loved that version. I had hoped that he would do it “Fairytale”-like, and it was exactly what he did. I was blessed afterwards”- says Simone to TV 2 (transl. by Anni Jowett) 

REVIEWS:

(Translation by Hilde M.)

 VG.no by Stein Østbø – Dice 3

Alexander tries to transform 90’s funk into folk music, and that is not an easy task. Alexander only manages half-way. His interpretation does not meet the promise of the sweeping violin intro. But, he sings very well and gives the song a touch of classic Rybak optimism.

Simone from “Hver gang vi møtes” 2014 on TV2

Simone Larsen was born in Freiburg, Germany and raised in Volda from the age of nine. She started singing in bands when she was 13, and has a background in jazz, soul and pop. After high school she moved to Oslo, where she sang with The Dingleberries before she met Jonny and Kim. The trio began playing together the summer of 1993. The idea was to create melodic pop with jazz and funk inspired rhythms. Elements from groovy funk, acid jazz and modern dance music mixed with the trio’s penchant for the melodic, and from this arose a unique sound – a “sound”. They chose to name their band The Sound. The drummer, Ofstad, suggested a more eye catching spelling  – D’Sound. (ref.: Rockipedia )

NAME:  Simone Eriksrud

BIRTHDAY:  21st of August

HOME COUNTRY:  Norway

3 WORDS TO DESCRIBE MYSELF:  Playful, friendly, talkative…

Samsaya – “Europe Skies” 

Samsaya starts

Samsaya opened the musical day with “Europe’s Skies” from Alexander’s album “No Boundaries” from 2010.
Alexander thinks Samsaya has done interesting things with his song.
– I have always believed that what makes my songs, is the usage of classic chords, but Samsaya took it away and it worked. And she makes an insane performance as well. She simplified the chords. I think it’s only her who could make the song believable that way,- says Alexander to TV 2.

HGVM artists talk behind each other’s back – Rybak was the most flirtatious!

* Sigvart Dagsland was advised by Anita Skorgan to bring an extra-large wardrobe
* Rybak made Anneli Drecker blush
* The artists were song-muzzled

Alexander Rybak took the prize when it came to flirting, Sigvart Dagsland was the funniest and the most vain, Lars Lillo-Stenberg impressed in the kitchen, while Simone Eriksrud was the crying queen in this year’s “Every time we meet.”
