Tuesday Althing: Helene Boksle

Welcome to another Tuesday Althing. Last week I promised a Norse lullaby, but what follows is, I think, a Norwegian folk song sung by Helene Boksle. I DARE you to not love this!

Behold:

So if that wasn’t quite a lullaby, it still makes me want to go to bed — if you know what I mean. Sorry — jazz and R&B don’t quite do it for me. Nope. Icelandic or Norwegian folk-singing hotties get me going.

Somebody help me!

Thanks for stopping by. See ya Thor’s Day!

  1. Lovely! My Norwegian is not really functional (sometime I’ll tell you how I hitchhiked to the wrong side of Norway because of my poor pronunciation . . .). But this sounds more like a medieval ballad in its cadence.

    But I’m with you: who cares what it’s about! Captivating.

    Reminds me of a Norwegian word I do know: bergtagen. Means “bewitched”; literally, “taken into the mountains (as by trolls).

  2. Bergtagen, eh? If trolls could sing like this girl, I’m certain many a person could be lured into the mountains and without complaint find themself climbing into a boiling stewpot.

    I definitely want to hear your Norge hitchhiker mishap!
