The band that sings that snow song we've been going on about for pages.  What else could I possibly be talking about? Extremely Crabbit ....  Rolling Eyes

Ah.. well.. um.. idk... Razz There's a band called snowpatrol, I think. Apparently they're quite popular. Shrugging

I don't know to be honest. I do quite like some of their other music, but it's not covers of childrens songs. You might have to ask you know who.

Okay, so what's the name of the band that sings det snor det snor?

Snow Patrol is an irish band made up of two dudes.  Not sure it's quite as cute. Can't get any samples of their music to find out.

The little sweary one? Suspect

She does have a corner on cute, no doubt. We'll see when she pops up next.

She was the one who posted it originally, so she's probably your best bet. Wink

The song is originally from this, apparently. Which has famous norwegian musicians recording versions of norwegian children songs. Smile

Great discovery!  that's chock full of cuteness!  Very Happy (likely because it's all in Fjordian)

Now I have to check into Bel Canto, the band behind our favorite snow song.  Will report back.

---

Oh, I ran off to check without even sending this. Will report back right now, then.

Bel Canto has put out a number of albums, all with rather disjointed musical styles, and det Snor is not on any of them! In order to find it on itunes you have to go to the right country, and I haven't figured out how to do that except to go through BB's link.

There's some other groups doing cute stuff on that list Blue posted, but for all I know they're talking about skinning whales; it still will sound adorable in that whacked-out argot they call a language.

Well that is TOTALLY annoying! You can only buy it in the Norwegian iTunes store... so I try to set up my card there, and they won't take it!! Fuck! Now I know why Norc swears so much!

I mean, it's ONE GODDAMN COMPANY! Why should it matter where I'm buying it from? So stupid.

You'd have to set it up with a Norwegian address on the Norwegian iTunes store. They won't take your card with an American address.

Would be great, except spotify is about 2 generations before my time, and I can't make head or tail of it. Something shows up, I get an icon down below telling me something is happening, but no matter what blanks I fill in or what buttons I push, NOTHING HAPPENS. I ain't not teenager, it doesn't work for me.

Hm. Easiest thing to do, if you have facebook, is just to click the link, click sign up with facebook in the link, log in there as you normaly would in the pop up window and then the album should start playing authomaticly in your browser. Shrugging

Oh gawd, facebook. I detest facebook. I suppose I can give it a try if I can remember my password....I try to use FB as little as possible, just safer that way.

I think cats largely tolerate us.

They see us as service providers, as evidenced by their propensity to nip you as punishment if you are so presumptuous to think you can stop petting them.

Found out what happened. Even Spotify claims the track is not available in the US. If it weren't for that one person posting it on youtube (probably illegally) most of us would never have heard it.

It's like they don't want your money or something. Razz

You could try using hola unblocker or whatever it's called.
