It´s time to get some more swedish music up in here!
So I am now holding my first ever contest here on UU and I hope I will get some kind of response. :D

The theme:
You are to make a song of a Swedish artist, dead or alive does not matter. Can be Swedish or english lyrics, or Swedish translated to english if you want to do it that way.

The Rules:
1. In the beginning of the video you must say "This is for Dennos Svenska artister contest". Svenska artister means Swedish artists. For info on how to say it right check the contest video.

2. You get to submit 3 entries in this contest.

3. YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO PLAY ANY ABBA SONGS!!!

4. Ukulele must be one of the instruments ofcourse. :)

5. Make sure you post your video as a response to the contestvideo.

How will this be judged?
I will have a co-judge with me on this one. The kindly BaronK will help me out to judge the entries. And we will judge them by heart. It´s all about the effort you put into this. ;)

When does the contest ends?
We end this the 3 of September.

What can you win?
The winner of this contest will get a huge Swedish flag and my grandmothers recipe for Swedish meatballs!

Sure, and it does not have to be in swedish, as long as the artist is from sweden. I dont expect people to learn swedish. ;)

It's just that Finntroll are Finnish. The Finns might not like being annexed yet again.

If there is something we are tired of here in sweden, its ABBA. And I for one hate em. Just tired of em. :)

My first of hopefully at least a couple of entries:

Hate To Say I Told You So by The Hives (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9C5laCt435M)

Full of mistakes, but hey, there's nothing punk about hitting every note right?

:shaka: oh yeah, baby!!! awesome contest idea!!!

a swedish flag is what is missing in our italian home in switzerland where my japanese wife bakes american cookies in a chinese oven ;) oh yeah. sweden is one of our next weekend destinations and if we'd have a swedish flag hanging in our office, we'd definitely be spending a weekend partying in stockholm or malmö faster than planned.

hm,.. there are actually so many cool swedish artists to cover. let me go through my music library and choose one ...let's rock that swedish music history :rock:

Sång till friheten, originally sung (in Swedish) by Björn Afzelius (pardon the Svorska :P)

I didn't really know what song to cover, except of course some ABBA tunes, but then I started researching which artists and bands actually come from Sweden and found out that there is A LOT of talent coming from there. Meja is one of them and I thought it would be cool to play 'All 'Bout the Money' on ukulele. Njuta av!

All 'Bout the Money - Meja
(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PcRnRJ4aFnQ)http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PcRnRJ4aFnQ

And if you'd like to play along, here the chords and the lyrics :D

Verse: E B A Am | E B A Am G#m G#
Chorus: A B G#m G# | A B C#m B Bbm | A

Sometimes, I find another world inside my mind
and when I realise the crazy things we do.
It makes me feel ashamed to be alive,
it makes me wanna run away and hide.

It's all 'bout the money,
it's all 'bout the dum dum da da da dum.
I don't think it's funny
to see us fade away.
It's all 'bout the money,
it's all 'bout the dum dum da da da dum.
And I think we got it all wrong anyway.

We find strange ways of showing them how much we really care,
when in fact we just don't seem to care at all.
This pretty world is getting out of hand,
so tell me how we fail to understand.

Sounds like a good contest... it's calling out for Jens Lekman.

(Oh, I forgot. Do we not mention him anymore since he said such mean things about the uke? :P)

the first Swedish musician that comes to mind is Yngwie Malmsteen... not really suited to ukulele, but if someone could pull that off it would be awesome!

I posted this song on the video link, but I forgot to post it here. It is a swedish hymn formed out of tragedy. It is not an ABBA song, but an Abba (Father) song.
