11 thoughts on “Songs Alexander Rybak has composed, released or featured in since 2009”

  1. This song is 2× in the cover list, and it is not from 2010, but 2012, on the Christmas Tales album
    43. I’ll Be Home For Christmas (2010) K. Gannon/ W. Kent / B. Ram
    46. I’ll Be Home for Christmas (2010) K. Gannon/ W. Kent / B. Ram

    You wanted to write this one, I guess (which is missing in the list):
    Coming Home for Christmas (2010) from the “Swinging Home for Christmas” album

    1. “I’ll be home for Christmas” is one of the 4 songs on the EP that was released in 2010 and sold at Alexander’s Christmas tour in 2010.

      1. Okay, I had “Coming Home for Christmas”, and thought it was 2 different songs, but that title is obviously wrong.
        I might have taken it from here:
        So you should correct that post too…

        And the right tracklist contains BLUE CHRISTMAS, not White Christmas.

        And then… just check the Christmas Tales album anywhere and you’ll see that “I’ll be hom for Christmas” was released on that CD too, also here.

        So you need to write there 2012 too.

        1. The post you give a link to is an old one made back in 2011. It definitely needs some corrections. This will be fixed. And we don’t need a copy of the CD, several of us have this CD ourselves.
          “Blue Christmas” is on the songlist, just like the 4 other songs from the EP. And yes, “I’ll Be Home for Chrismas” is also on CT, but we only list the first release year unless there is a re-arrangement/new version, like with “Foolin”. If Alexander should ever release a “Best of” CD with the same old recordings, we won’t define it as a new release. F.eks. “Fairytale” is a part of many collection CDs through the years, but the release date is still 2009.

  2. Ah, got it, it’s the classical piaces released on others’ albums (or whatever)..
    But then the title should maybe like this:
    4. Classical pieces composed by others and released on others’ album

    And what does mean “released”? Where? single, album, YT, online streaming services..?
    If album, then it is only Trolle that is metioned, the other abums not…
    And all the medleys and mas-ups ar actually covers.

    1. What the list is based on is mentioned in the post. “The lists are based on releases on streaming services, physical CDs, uploads on Alexander’s YT channel and his own compositions that we know of since 2009.”

  3. Nice job!

    Some corrections:
    Shazka -> Skazka
    Ya Ne Veryu V Chudes -> Ya Ne Veryu v Chudesa
    Felize Navida 2 × -> Felíz Navidad
    Ronde des Lutin --> Ronde des Lutins
    Annelie Drecker 2× -> Anneli Drecker
    Dima Bila -> Dima Bilan
    Reinder -> Reindeer
    Til en villmarkspoet --> Till en vildmarkspoet
    Santa Claus Is Coming Tonight -- Santa Claus Is Coming To Town

    Seeing the songs in the category
    “4. Classical pieces composed by others” …
    These all are included in the Classical Music list, so wonder
    what this category is for actually, or you could have added all classical songs composed by others here..

    And btw. the song
    “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”
    also belongs to the Movie music list
    You’ll find the longer version than in Alexander’s post in Ingeborg’s IGTV

    Я влюблен! -- Ya vljubljen -Russian version of “I’m in love” -- album Nebesa Evropi 2010
    Катрин (“Katrin” Russian version of Why Not Me) -- album Nebesa Evropi 2010

    Nice to see you gathered all the collaboration songs as I suggested back then…
    Some missing though, like

    Single “Trolltjern”/”Troll pond” by Jørn Atle Støa – 2011

    Album “Reptilian” by “Keep of Kalessin”,
    song “The Divine Land” -- 2011

    Album “Guilty Pleasures” by Didrik Solli-Tangen,
    song “Torna a surriento” -- 2010

    And some more that you’ll find here:

    1. Thank you for noticing the typos. They will be fixed soon. About the category “Classical pieces composed by others, this shows the songs Alexander has released himself, and is therefor different from the “classical list” you are referring to. The missing songs: Alexander did not take part in Keep of Kalessin’s CD recording. He only performed with them in MGP. We know KOK uploaded the performance to their YT-channel, but so far we havn’t considered to add this song to this overview. About “Torna a Surriente”, there is no release of this song with Alexander as far we know. About missing songs. We have got some more feedback on that from others,too. We will check through them now and the songs who are relevant will be added. Thanks for the feedback 🙂

      1. Okay, I added “Torna i sorriento” for some reason wrongly, but it is “You” on that album of Didrik S-T, at least according to this site:
        + it says here too that it was written by Alexander:

        Keep of Kalessin:
        wonder what that means:
        Guest – Alexander Rybak”

        And what about
        “Når båten seiler inn”?
        and here:

    2. Ref. the question you sent us, anyone can share links to the stuff on the Fansite.
