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.

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.

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 )

CHECK WHAT RYBAK HAS ON HIS WALL

Alexander Rybak (27) became world-famous when he took part in Eurovision 2009 with the song “Fairytale”. Since then he has played the song at all concerts and events he had.

The song was eventually called a plague. And Rybak has a good dose of self-irony in this. This is well illustrated by the fact he has on his living room wall a cartoon that makes fun of “Fairytale”.

– You must see this one. It’s very funny, says “Hver gang vi møtes “current participant Rybak to Se & Hør.

Mom Natalia and Dad Igor were also visiting. They didn’t hide that they think the comic is funny.
– I laugh at it every time, said Mom Natalia.

“I start rumours about myself”

Rumours and falsehoods have been rampant in the international  press about Alexander Rybak after he won the Eurovision Song Contest. Now he tells the truth. 

After he won the Eurovision Song Contest in Moscow in 2009 Alexander Rybak has experienced the downside of fame. Alexander who is half Belarussian isn’t just a big star here in Norway, but he`s also a superstar in Russia, which the viewers of TV2`s show “Senkveld from Sochi” could experience.

Tonight Rybak will be onstage at Eurovision again.


Yesterday Lars Lillo-Stenberg did a new Version of Alexander Rybak’s song “Fairytale” in “Hver Gang vi Møtes” and the reviewer in Dagbladet gave 6 on the dice.

The song became an immediate hit and a door opener to the 27 year old when he won the Eurovision Song Contest in Moscow in 2009, and has given him an enormous success. Rybak has played the song numerous times since, but feels he will never get tired of the pop song with a violin sound.

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.

Always cosy whenever we meet

For the first time Alexander Rybak shows off his apartement at Aker Brygge.

Welcome! Alexander Rybak (27) is of current interest with the TV2 success “Hver Gang Vi Møtes”.

– I got along best with Sigvart Dagsland. He thinks of music at the same level as me. I am already looking forward to the next time I’ll see him, he tells.

The busy guy with the fiddle is traveling most of the time. He is away from home 250 days a year. When he happens to be at his apartment at Aker Brygge in Oslo he enjoys relaxing in front of his new 55 inch 4K-TV.

Alexander opens the doors to his bachelor burrow

Bachelor burrow: The 55 inch TV is the centerpiece of the living room. – I enjoy life when I get to sit on the couch and play video games, said Alexander Rybak.

I have learnt to enjoy life when I`m at home. This is my “safe house”. I play TV-games, watch movies and build LEGO. LEGO is what I busy myself with when I write lyrics, he tells.

Lives here: In 2010 Alexander bought a 90 square metre apartment at the attractive area Aker Brygge in Oslo. He paid a little over five million Norwegian krone for it.

– I remember I got scolded by my Norwegian teacher in primary school. We got a book, and we students were going to read one chapter a week. I read the book in a few hours. The teacher did not believe me and got grumpy, smiles Alexander.

Could have been burnt out 

Playing the violin at Alexander’s level is a demanding exercise. Dad Igor tells they are happy he doesn’t only give violin concerts.

Proud parents: Mom Natalia and Dad Igor think it’s cosy meeting their son when he’s at home in Oslo.

– If that was the case, my son would’ve been burnt out already. It`s difficult to understand how demanding it is to give a violin concert, tells Igor who says his son was already a capable violinist at the age of six.

Many people claim that Alexander has the gene of a genius in his body. Like many other geniuses he has chosen his own path. Sometimes things have become too much for him, like when he hit his hand against the wall in rage. And when he smashed his violin during a rehearsal.

Sleepless nights

Home studio: Alexander creates much of his music here.Currently he is busy with his own musical “Troll”.

– I can go 12 days in a row with four to five hours of sleep. Then I’m out of balance. If it`s in addition to a big pressure similar things like when I hit my hand against the wall and had to wear a cast occurred. But now I have learnt to live with it. Now I’m able to stay calm in such situations.

The MGP-legend is used to high and low tunes. The music reflects his life.
– Sometimes I don’t feel anything. It’s all empty. During those periods I’m the most susceptible, and often those are the times when I create new music, he tells.

Could`ve been “The Bachelor” 

Music has given Alexander opportunities and great offers. Some things he has accepted, others he regrets turning down.

Builds LEGO: Every time I’m home I start building a new LEGO project. To me this is work, since I write song lyrics while I make myself busy with these constructions.

– I turned down being a guest at the Oprah Winfrey show a few years ago. Also I turned down participating in the Ukrainian celebrity Version of “The Bachelor”. They offered me 8 million Krone, but I had a girlfriend at the time. If I had received the offer today, the answer would’ve surely been different, he says smiling.

At the age of 27, however, he has achieved more than most people. That’s why it’s suitable to finish this article with these words from Alexander:

– This isn’t something a mother or father enjoys hearing, but I can say that if I died today I would’ve died a lucky man.
