This is the chilling theme tune from the excellent TV drama Wallender.

That is stunning Steve.

Have you listened to any of her albums?  If not, I highly recommend them.

Glad you liked it. Smile

I've listened to some of her other music and while she's very talented it's not really to my taste. I did find this slightly different version of the song 'Nostalgia' on Spotify which is an even better version than the one posted earlier. I've been listening to it all day today.

ABBA - Gold For some reason

ABBA - Gold

For some reason when I clicked on 'Play all music' this morning it started playing them in alphabetical order rather than a random order like it usually does. So this morning fate has had me listening to ABBA and it's great. I'd forgotten what an enjoyable album this is.

Brian Kennedy - Live in

Brian Kennedy - Live in Belfast . He has a wonderful voice and the recording catches the live feeling of being there quite well .

I do so much prefer good live recordings Smile

Electro,

I've been tempted by her a few times, but couldn't make up my mind if I liked her or not... I was the same with Julia Stone and Laura Veirs, but once I took the plunge, never looked back.

I'll give this a listen

Mac
