Glad you like it. I see that you are level 13, do you understand many of the words in the songs I listed?

I can pick up words yes. But it is still difficult for me to pick up full sentences unless there is a text given.

hehe, I feel the same way when I listen to Spanish music. Someone should make an international hit about a tortoise drinking milk :))

Hej! Thumbs up for this really cool idea. Thanks for sharing. I have so much more fun learning Danish from songs :) Actually some singers like Rasmus Seebach and Rasmus Walter have many slow songs so it is easy to hear everything. Tusind tak!

Thanks. Rasmus Seebarch is great, I think my fav. is "hjemløs". The songs I picked above are not particularly great, they just have alot of words from the curriculum I think. Among them, Dodo & the dodo's and Ray Dee Ohh are my fav from the 80s.

For very plain and correct Danish like Rasmus Seebach, Anne Linnet is also a great artist but her lyrics are very poetic and probably too challeging, but the pronunciation is excellent.

For old Nordic inspired music you might want to try Sorten Muld - Bonden og Elverpigen. They take acient nordic tales and translate them into music using nordic and electronic instrumentation.

Ohhh you have brought it to a next level now. Sorten Muld is definitely one of the finest pieces of music that I have encountered lately. Great tunes, vibes and stories. Thanks a bunch!!
