I did never catch myself thinking “hey where did Lisa Ekdahl go?”. For me this neat little and delightful lady was not much more than the lyrics “Vem vet, inte du. Vem, vet, inte jag” from her song with which she for the first time sang her song into the swedish cold hearts. Later she was gone, just like the warm summer wind, coming too early in May just to be gone i June. Now, a few weeks ago I was watching “Allsång på Skansen” (a swedish telivised tradition). And there she was. Cuter and more delightful than ever before. She started singing her song. And I was paralysed. And thought to myself “how the fuck could this lady disappear with out us screaming encore?”. Well, obviously Sweden had not given her what she deserved so she took her recourse to France … and made huge success.
But I thank god that she is back.
