How we discovered Alexander Rybak – Songs and stories

A while back we asked if you had any questions for Alexander, and we also wanted to hear your stories of How you discovered him. So here we present some of your stories and the songs connected to them.

Europe’s skies

  • Hello Alexander! Maybe you do not know anything about this little country in South America, anyway I want to thank you because while everything is a chaos here, I can dream and be happy just listening to your music. I dream with finding a place where I can feel comfortable, a place that I can call home. For that reason, “Europe’s Skies” is a very special song for me, because somehow it says what I feel. Yazly, Venezuela 
  • The way I got to know your songs. Last year I heard Europe’s skies in a forum in someone’s profile and then fell in love with it…then Fairytale and the Eurovision stage it was so exciting. Now I think there isn’t any video of u on YouTube that I haven’t seen and 24/7 is your songs…for getting rid of confusion of my lessons and calming down a bit… Mahdiyeh, Iran
  • Hi Alex! When I heard your music first, I was searching on the net. It happened 2 years ago. My favorites are the Fairytale, Europe’s skies, Roll with the wind… but the best is Europe’s skies. Virág, Hungary

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.

Article: “Shamelessness beats handsomeness”. Vietnam Nov.25th 2012

 “Shamelessness beats up handsomeness”

It’s the experience that the online community learned, after watching a music video named “Oah” by the multi-talented Norwegian guy – Alexander Rybak.

In the music video, Rybak appears as a cute and joyful guy baring his heart to Moa, though she does not even care and flatly turns him down: “Alexander, I’m not interested in you!”, “Listen, I don’t want to go out with you!”, “Stop following me!”

Rybak records new music video for russian release

In a video like you’ve never seen him before, Alexander Rybak dusts down his 2010 release Oah, giving it a brand new music video intended for the Russian speaking market.

The single Oah was originally included on his follow up album to Fairytale, No Boundaries and released way back in June, 2010 in an English language version. It was a moderate hit in Norway, making number 23 on the charts. This latest video to accompany Oah was not previously released in Norway, filming having only been completed in the spring where it was filmed in Ukraine. The newest release is the first of a number of Russian language projects in the pipeline, as Alexander Rybak recognizes that Russia and Eastern Europe are two very important markets for his career.
