The World Of Poetry

Let There Be Light

Listen with your heart

Eat the meal as long as it´s warm

There was a time when you looked through the tunnel

Towards the day, we call it light

He is hovering over the earth with His finger

Ever since the dawn was created, the days are coming

Risen from the night, candles are talking

Eleven stars and the black hole is quiet

Boom, and the earth was created

Emotions of Fridays will move over to weekend days

Look at the moon and you will understand space

If you could kiss me you star of hope

Genesis is dynamic and time is talking

Hands with water will spread out vividly

Touches of evilness will flee for the force of day!

Don´t forget to wind this up:

I am sure you are curious on how the earth was created once and this my latest instrumental is about that, view these images first:

Listen to my latest songs here, you are very welcome!

Niagara Falls

News Update!!! Here my latest song about The Good News.

If you are keen on getting out a message you want to make that clear to your audience whether you are only sharing your music online or do have concerts offline too.

On my part I am open to begin playing with others again, then it would be a matter of a guitarplayer and possibly female singer in the background but that will the future show.

Let´s Remember Bach

To find inspiration amongst classical music can be a challenge.

Yngwiee Malmsteen has done that for years and I am familliar with the result.

A brilliant guitarrist with brilliant technique.However, the technique isn´t everything when it comes to music, the tender touch and feeling of it is crucial, of course.

Here, Rainbow´s take on Beethoven´s The Ninth:

Finally, a favorite, Toccata in D-minor by Johann Sebastian Bach:

Avoid the extreme ditches

Why not include the lyrics into the blogpost so here you are:

Common Sense, I Salute You

They are always there
They will always try to
Put everything to the extremes

Should you rebuke them
Or should you deny them?

The more balanced people want
A more balanced talk
With them you can take a walk

Sorry, but another worldwar
Is only avoided with common sense
So, welcome to the fair and balanced.

Common Sense, I salute you

The Next Treasure


Get the power now, from above
Share your tunes, share your love

Don´t look back in your old life
Just move forward, without any strife

Kill your inner beast
You would fly in freedom, at least

We want to give you the measure
In the next kind of treasure

The Next Treasure

Don´t You Flee

Learn from the history

How to find ideas to write lyrics for a song?

Whatever kind of ideas you get to write a song you want to find the inspiration somewhere,

In a movie, from a well-known band or from a rainy day?

The thoughts should go to the victims in Houston, what a disaster there.

Could you find inspiration in the reality? Of course, but you also need your imagination and metaphors to complete your own lyrics in your songs.

If you are making covers, that´s ok even if many, many are doing that already in this time.

Big words there.However, I believe that nations can change in this time 

The Magic Chamber....

You have to have the magic in your music.Every musician wants the mysterykind of feeling in their music which makes it more interesting than the average song which could on the other side be like a plastic copy of every other song you have composed recently.

Try to include the variation in both instrumental songs and songs with your lyrics.

Now to something else.If you aren´t convinced on how awful the dictatorship was in the Old CCCP, take a look on this horrible movie which shows how they treated the opponents during that dictatorship.

They are welcome with every documentary on how awful the nazis were but they should dig more in the history and it is my responsibility to include historical facts on how bad Stalin treated his people during his time of terror.

We as humans must learn enough from the history not to repeat the mistakes.

The magic in the music

A magician don´t want others to be able to figure out how he makes the tricks, that´s a simple fact.

Does a musician thinks in the same ways?

Yes and no.

When you hear about a new artist coming out with a brand new album, do you think he started yesterday with his career? I wouldn´t think so but we are living in a society where everything must happen at once, overnight.

To practice on the long term doesn´t exist, it has to happen very fast nowadays.

I heard the same nagging when I started out as an affiliate marketer many years ago.Due to the "besserwissers" it probably would be a waste of time for me to even try to make any money, I would probably fail.Some years after that I actually made pretty well and earned what they claimed I wouldn´t.

Is it jealousy?

Yes, a bit of it even if you of course meet those who have better attitudes and who want to actually learn more about what you are doing.A good and curious attitude is a good thing while the destructive attitudes always come from jealous and selfdestructive people.

I and a friend will travel to a concert in Gothenburg with Scorpions in November.

I am totally sold for this song by them.

Of course, I have heard them many times on You Tube.

However, that one is a special one for two reasons.They dare to renew their music with a song as don´t really sound as a typical Scorpionssong.Of course, they always have their style and yet they dare to make something different.

It´s about the magic in the song.

That one doesn´t sound too complicated and it shouldn´t.Though, I believe it has a measure of magic.

What has the winner of the series Idol ?

Yes, much of talent but also a sourrounding magic which makes much of the things happen around them.

Many ideas to songs, many ideas of twisting ideas with each other.

When you have been away from a friend too long you are very glad to see them again, aren´t you? Especially if she is your girlfriend.That song isn´t about a girlfriend but about a friend and the expression......

Long time no see

became very true.

Spend qualitytime with your friends and try to bring blessings into their lives even in hard times.Bless your friends and remember, even a talent need to work hard to achieve anything with her music.

Touching The Heart

During my vacation I was at Vetlanda slott with a friend and the guide there told us about the length of kings from mostly the time around Gustav Vasa.Overall he touched a couple of hundred years after that century too.

Our history is our roots and we need to be educated on it and repeat it as well.

A talented metalband from Sweden has a song about The Last Stand.

Ok, have you ever liked classical music? I am not especially an expert on that kind of music but yet I like the most well-known composed masterpieces like Mozart´s Elvira Madigan.

There is a movie with the same title of Bo Widerberg. called Elvira Madigan from 1967:

Let me finally recognize two of the best female singers in the rock history from Heart, Ann and Nancy Wilson.

Slaughter The Dragon

Why am I still blogging?

I assume you have met this kind of question and similar and I won´t answer to it either.I don´t need to motivate it at all.I just feel for it.I am passionate as I like music.That´s still an answer, though it don´t need any further explanation.

Bloggers come and go, they always have.

Out from internet marketing or another interest, they come and go.Not to mention the political blogs, often connected to Twitter.

The name of my blog is, yes, a name of a band, though it is as much a name of a blog.

The video up there is one of the most well-known songs through many years.I saw a program yesterday about ABBA and wow! the attention of the band was incredible.

Typically, they were as recognized outside Sweden as in our own nation.

However, true swedes have always been intersted in a good attitude towards our own culture and traditions, especially conservatives.

Even if this isn´t a political blog it is imossible to avoid that area in all situations.Therefore I am deeply dissapointed at Roger Waters bad attitude towards Israel.

He is describing Israel as a dictatorship, more or less and I couldn´t disagree to him more than I do.Israel is the most obvious democratic nation in the whole middle east and he don´t want to see that, that´s it!

No excuse, many don´t want to see their position as they have to defend all the time against attacks from other sourrounding nations.

This instrumental song is about the war in the spiritual world between God´s angels and satans fallen angels.

Sweden is a part of Scandinavia and so is Norway

Guess a very, very well-known hit with a certain band which comes from that country?

Finally here a favorite with Rainbow:

You Are Chosen!

Get Rid Of Your Fears!!

Johnny´s Band

Are you good to go?

Starting up a band isn´t so hard.It is to market it and reach the goals that is harder.

Unfortunately it is very exciting for many people today to listen to bands who are lifting up satan.

One band which has started up in our town here isn´t exactly doing that, that is at least what they claim, yet they are called Hin Håle.And as many know that is an expression for the christians enemy, namely satan.I won´t ever get involved in a debate which aims to criticise a specific style even if I find some styles too extreme as well.I am interested in why they chose such a name.

The answer will be the same, it is on the spiritual level.

In the spiritworld we find reasons to certain conflicts and war between Gods angels and the demons from the dark side.

I know that the atheists want to claim this kind of war doesn´t take place, however it is a reality.

The first time I heard this sharp song I immediately felt it would schock the religous people in Sweden and myyyyy, it did.

It wouldn´t be the same effect today but in the late 80:s and the beginning of the 90:s the christian climate was at that level.

That was after a time where many good christian bands had ended and no band had expressed so sharp until then as Jerusalem did.A very good band through the ages from the 70:s until now.

Today the controversial discussions are more political and a question how you relate to the national/global questions and all sorts of questions related to that.Yet, the church has began to move a little bit again and we can feel the beginning of a renewal again even if it don´t evolve quickly, direct.

This instrumental song was composed out from awareness of the situation in our nation where chaos is a reality in some areas, not all, of course but yet in hospitals and schools, for example.

Get it into order again.We must see more action from the police in the suburban areas.We even hear about such sensivity as they want to take away the use of that expression, suburban??

Is that some kind of solution, to end the using of certain expressions? That is a very weird way to go, at least in my world.

And the follower of the latest instrumental there became this one:

Ok, and the future of my musical project, what will that be.Honestly, I take one day at the timeand I will see what kind of possibilities that arise along the way.

Here, a story about a new band.Keep in mind that I have played  in several bands in the past.I don´t know if my readers know that.I took up the music now again after a long break.

Experiences, use them

The musicworld will always live in one way or the other.

However, different opinions on how it is run will always exist as well.

Do they discover new talents who really appreciate not only the music in itself but also the lyrics.

When you discuss this with others they claim they are hardly not listening to lyrics at all, they only remember a positive part of it.

I can understand that but when we grew up we were discussing the content of the lyrics mainly in symphonyrockbands but also some other bands.

The best managers want to care about the whole musicmarket in a more responsible way.

Concerning the lyrics there....

                                                         So, so you think you can tell
                                            Heaven from hell
                                            Blue skies from pain
                                            Can you tell a green field
                                            From a cold steel rail?
                                            A smile from a veil?
                                            Do you think you can tell?

                                            Did they get you to trade 
                                            Your heroes for ghosts?
                                            Hot ashes for trees?
                                            Hot air for a cool breeze?
                                            Cold comfort for change?
                                            And did you exchange 
                                            A walk on part in the war
                                            For a lead role in a cage?

                                            How I wish, how I wish you were here
                                            We're just two lost souls  Swimming in a fish bowl
                                            Year after year
                                            Running over the same old ground 
                                            And how we found 
                                            The same old fears 
                                            Wish you were here

Do you like the poetry in the lyrics there?
Many years ago when I studied different forms of poetry I wondered what use of it I would have in the future.
Today, I understand I got use of it when I am writing lyrics to my songs.

Part of the lyrics here....

Seek God´s Kingdom and His righteousness and you will have the timing in it all.

Yesterday I was involved in a discussion concerning being a christian vs. an atheist.There were more people in the discussion and we came to the conclusion that it is always a matter of faith or not.

It is always a matter of experiences and if you have experienced God in a personal way or not.

I have had this video before but I have chosen it because it tells you so much about the christian faith.

If you are down in your life you can rise again as a person due to the power in Christ and overcome the hard paths we all some time in the life have to go through with different experiences.

The Third Way

What to do to avoid the ditches?

Keep your feet on the ground and avoid the ditches.

Use your common sense!

Sure, you can get angry over both insanity in the political world and you can get frustrated over the crap in the musical world.

When I grew up I appreciated when my friends introduced me to symphonyrock and some other styles.I began playing in the first band and we played in the church in my hometown then and they couldn´t understand that they had to understand my new way in life then.

Then, eventually I moved up to Jonkoping to play in a christian hardrock band.We were out in Sweden and played at different places and towns.

The band after that was called John after John, the baptist in the bible.

Like prophets we believed in delivering a strong christian message to the music.This is many years ago.

So, what is happening now?

Well, of course my blog is here updating you on that and I mean something with my one man band even if it´s solely my music on You Tube.

Common Sense is The Third Way.
