Danish Music

Hey guys!

Since I have had a few requests for Danish music I decided to make a youtube playlist. If you have any songs you feel should be added feel free to suggest them, though I keep the right to refuse to add songs. The playlist contains a lot of different genres, but they are all in Danish:

The only one I could have suggested is already there, Nephew - Gå Med Dig, I just like that song too much. You sure took you time with that list, there are a lot of songs, thanks for sharing.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/bjarkehs

Haha, but that's already there! Way ahead of you :P

I recently checked out this song and grew really fond of it, thanks for mentioning :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/r56ygf

Thank you for suggesting this song. I really like the band. Does anyone have some Danish music like this?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MantisObscura

Also, I'd like to recommend Røst. They made a really beautilful album called Drømte mig en drøm, and I think at least one song (sensommervisen) is actually a traditional. I just love it! Edit: Had to shorten the link due to a formatting problem: http://dft.ba/-roest

And for avid learners, you can find the lyrics to the songs on their bandcamp page: http://roest.bandcamp.com/album/dr-mte-mig-en-dr-m

oooooh I need to go listen to this - thanks!! :D

The song 'drømte mig en drøm' is actually the oldest non-christian song written down in Scandinavia.

It appears on a copy of 'The Scanian Law' from around 1300.

The melody is often used in jingle's on DR (Demnark's Radio)

While they sing in English, can I give a shoutout to the best (Danish) band ever?

ALPHABEAT WOOOO!!!!!!!!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t3RjCiq1ICY

They are probably the reason I like Denmark so much xD


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Bouquetm

Choir of young believers?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ajpthree

I'd say MEW is a lot better than them (if we're talking about danish bands singing in english) - & Under Byen is WAAAAAYYYYYY better!! haha :D


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JaneD-Boston

Don't forget Danish folk music, e.g. http://youtu.be/s1vt2OxkB8E


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/matthew.aric

Do you know the band Valravn? I really like them and I think some of their songs are in Danish.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Marinia

Thanks, was looking for some Danish music :) btw, I pretty liked the song "godt du kom", I don't think it's in the list yet. You can check if you want to add it.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zBirtfDh65c


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/bjarkehs

Pretty sure that is already there, however if it is restricted I'll add this version :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/smearedink

I haven't listened to a lot of Danish music, and it's been awhile, but I remember liking Under Byen back when Samme Stof Som Stof came out. I should listen to some of the newer stuff.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MantisObscura

This is a great playlist, thank you so much! I already know quite a bit of that (danish dancehall is kind of my guilty pleasure) and I can especially recommend the song "Million" by Joey Moe. Listen to that three times and you'll never ever mess up the weekdays again ;) Plus, it's pretty catchy.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Reisam

I really enjoyed the video of Ulige Numre! Some very nice footage of København!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/czenzi-lee

There is a group called Under Byen for those interested in post-rock. Maybe a good album to start with is "Samme stof som stof."


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ajpthree

my favorite band!! :D


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/gonewiththesea

You should also check out this web site: http://goodbecausedanish.com/


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/immqrtal

I would recommend adding "1000 år" by Rasmus Seebach and Ankerstjerse! I hadn't found it on the playlist, so I assume it is not there! It is a very nice song, and I really like it, so I think it'd be good to add.

Nice work on piling up all this music for us to listen to and learn from! We greatly appreciate it, Bjarkehs! c:

Thanks again.

Sometime ago I downloaded Dan Haugaard's Songs of Denmark on spotify. The first song, which is a lullaby, sounds beautiful. The tracks are nice to listen to.

Two of my favourite Danish songs incorporate Nadia Gattas - 'Rejser Gennem Tiden' and 'Min Indre Stemme' the latter which she is featured on :) Both great songs!
