You're Living In Delirium

So my friend over at PopPosterGirl has scooped me once again. I've been planning a post on Lena Philipsson all week and sure enough she posted about Lena the other day!

But that's ok... I'm not afraid of looking like a copy cat... the fact is we both have amazing taste in music... and there's enough room for all of us in bloggville! So onto Lena Philipsson.

Lena has been around for more than 20 years in Sweden, with her career starting off back in 1984! After her debut single she participated in Melodifestivalen in 1986, 1987 and 1988! Throughout the '90' s she released many more albums, always re-inventing herself. Then in 1997 she simply stopped.

Then in 2004, after a 7 year hiatus Lena EXPLODED back onto the music scene by entering and winning Melodifestivalen with the now infamous 'Det Gor Ont.' The album went gold in just 9 days!

Earlier this year Lena celebrated over 20 years of music by releasing a greatest hits collection, simply named 'Lena 20 Ar.'

And for you... my all time favorite Lena Philipsson tracks:

Ha ha! Slightly scary--not only do we have similar music tastes, now we're starting to think about the same artist at the same time. I always think people should write about what they like/are passionate about, even if there's overlap; no one has the same perspective, you know? Plus, Lena has more than enough amazing-ness to go around :)

I really like the Adam Rickett song in the post below this, but that's probably not surprising--it's very "the sort of thing I like." Like the concept of the post, too!

Just wondering.
Could you please post the "Det gör ont en stund på natten men inget på dan" album or her greatest hits album please.
