Time to Eeyoreize

The picture might not be the best at the moment, cause if you close to a Swede, fear might be the correct emotion. But… If we bow down, they win.

But it really is the time of Eeyoreize, winter is closer than ever, the world is crazy and I really must decide if I am going to move from France, and if yes, any other EU country or going back to a Sweden that looks everything else then something you want to go back to, snowing in Stockholm.

That said, the Friday 2 Friday Spotify chart is again up on a Friday.

Have a nice TGIF.


Winter is back

First day biking to work with gloves and a scarf and double clothing, which turned out to be “not enough”. And as always at work, the place has the same temp as outside. It is amazing really.

Last Friday, I missed the “Friday 2 Friday” so I publish it today instead.

Don’t live as they do in Gaza, live in peace.


Finally, the work week is over

Nice TGIF on all of you, the work week is soon over and today I only noticed 2 flat pigeons on the way to work. On the down side it is a French team Rugby game today, so we need to park our bikes outside the closed area around the “Rugby Village” at Place de la Concorde.

Today the world also woke up to a new release by Army of lover’s. Life IS wonderful! Superb little tune.

And of course, no TGIF without the Friday to Friday most played songs on Spotify. Yes, Most played at my house, not global. People do not have that much good taste as I do.

With this very important update I bid you a Nice weekend, and publish, for you all, the cover of the remix single by John Duff.


Last day of the workweek

So finally there, a week full of work, travel, UN meeting, blisters on the left foot and most likely some KG up in weight because missed out gym time (when I was in Geneva). Lovely!

But TGIF, always a plus.

We start with the second single from Agnetha’s “A+” album, soon to be released.

Honestly don’t know what to say…. But to me it sound a bit like when you put a beat on using a online tool, and then add the lyrics by singing yourself. Not very impressed I’m must say, not bad! Not saying that, but not so impressed either.

Then of course we have our “Friday to Friday” charts. Most played songs, albums and artists this week, Friday to Friday.

Artists – Friday to Friday

Songs – Friday to Friday

Albums – Friday to Friday

With that, enjoy your TGIF, and I will soon get back to normal and explode a bit over the fact that yesterday traffic in Paris went mental.


Voila, here it is…

…The TGIF! Again, as always SO welcome. Even if it rains, if not cat and dogs, cats and hippopotamus.

Looks like the last weekend before payday will be a cold and wet one so most likely stay home and, in Swedish, “pyssla”.

With this statement I present this weeks Friday to Friday.

With that, hopefully you find a favorite you forgot about and add it to your playlist, and have a nice TGIF.


TGIF again then

A blue sky TGIF, looks promising to be honest. Maybe some wine? Maybe not… We will see.

The Eurovision fan accounts this week published the Swedish ESC results, comparing jury votes and tele votes.

The 12, douze, comes from the jury votes. So now when the rules changed to only televotes in the semi finals I don’t think Sweden will end up as the powerhouse anymore. It might change in the future.

That said, let us check this weeks Friday to Friday, most played music the past week at Casa Björn, Chez moi or i min soffa.

So that’s it, have a nice TGIF now. And weekend.


So, TBT today then

We have the #TBT day, we past the hump, and facing the TGIF. Sounds like a good idea.

Surprise though to, as every fu**ing Thursday arrive to work with a new record of emails in the inbox. I do not understand why Thursdays is the email day. Or yes I do, we work mainly with the Middle East so they are off Fridays, and most likely want to close the week, so Thursday is the closing of the week day.

Finally also made my pick on “Artist of the month”, you can find:

Oh Agnetha

First of all, Agnethas new single “Where do we go from here” reached #1 Sweden, #1 UK #1 Netherlands #2 Latvia #2 Norway #3 Germany #3 Switzerland #4 Finland #4 Hungary and #4 Israel. After 1 day. Amazing, and it is a bit what happened in my own little country (a.k.a. my apartment) as well. I will return to that.

It is TGIF today, and of course weather is undecided. Going out to smoke, I have already meet rain, storm and sunny and really warm weather. So it’s not easy to decide if the evening will be on the couch, at the closest terrace or out for a night of “rajj-rajj”. We will see where it all ends up. Friday’s weight in on the home scale might also decide for me.

So, this page new tradition, music charts from my Spotify, under the headline “Friday to Friday”, a week’s listening. So let’s start with the most played songs, since Agnetha made it to #1 in one day. I don’t know yet if it’s enough to even score a top 40 on my “Most Played August” list, but when I know I will tell ya.

Most played songs, Friday to Friday, this week:

Most play’s artists, Friday to Friday, this week:

And finally, albums, Friday to Friday, this week:

This statistics program for Spotify (cause all this is Spotify plays, the 40 Most played in August is from iTunes) is fun. Not exact, cause cover pictures not always correct, and if an artist release a song “feat” another artist both are counted separately, which is annoying. Cause all of a sudden someone named “Pink Lola” might have 40 streams that week, and I, and you, have no idea who that is.

Have a nice TGIF now, and remember: Wine is grown up candy.
