"Nöjesbladet" says Albin Lee Meldau that he was never able to imagine a place in the ”So much better”. "
"you Thought you would be with in the ”So much better”?"
" No, I had probably not thought of. It was very nice to do. Well it's a pretty bizarre idea that does not hit a until you get the honour. But I'm very glad to have gotten to be with."
"the Program is full of emotion, which can feel almost sacred for the audience. Is it so really?"
"– It is all about even art and even life and it is a very big honour to be there, so clearly it is sensitive. "
"What do you think of the sections?"
"– They were working very early and very intense. There were so many impressions. It was a great honour to be there. It went very quickly. But I will not mind so much. "
"What will you remember most?"
" this is all about giving love to an artist. All are in the same guild and respect each other deeply. What you will remember most are the reactions from the person who has written or made work. Since then, I have met friends which I think I will have for life, and I think very well about the people who were there. It is what I will remember most – the heat."
"”Not had so much social life”"
"Any particular you come near?"
"– You come, the more close to each other in a rather intimate way, when you interpret each other and the work so intense and so close, so I feel that I have come close in different ways. But of course, I and Big is located the closest to each other in age, it would be my childhood friend. But I like them all very strongly. It is well the nicest thing I can take with me, how the wonderful people I have got to know, and how good teamwork it is, if you're trying to work together."
"Have you met anyone after the program?"
"– All are workaholics, I don't think someone is doing something other than working. So I have not had as much social life since it was here. I meet people as I work, it will be unfortunately so. I have not had the time to meet someone."
"But are you working with any of them?"
"– Yes maybe, we'll see. I want to work as much as possible with the music and then you do it as much as you can."
"How have the reactions been now after the program?"
" Everyone is really happy and proud, I get a lot of love. It is so very nice people who appreciate what you do, so you get hot. Then there are people who do it, but you'll have to just live with."
"”Utterly bizarre and fantastic”"
"What do you think about the sections when you look now in retrospect?"
"– It's crazy. But it is fun. I am delighted to be with. It's just fun."
"But how does it feel to see yourself on tv?"
"– That's a really good question, anything is possible. I have a very great luck and honor to be with. It's not like you have been forced to be with, it has been an honor to be there."
"Is it embarrassing to check on yourself?"
"– All people see themselves may well feel that it is embarrassing, but it should of course not play any role. I do what I do. It is clear that if you see something and it comes out wrong, then you need to just apologize. All people do wrong and all people say things they do not mean. You go around and are afraid of it, you can not do anything interesting."
"– To think that something is embarrassing... It applies to all people, otherwise they're not human."
"Is there any particular of the others' interpretations of your songs that touched you the most? "
" No, it's not the way it works. I can't take out than as well. But it is a bizarre tribute. It is so nice. Even if you have a solid career... It is a very special situation to get their innermost thoughts read aloud and interpreted. It is extremely emotional and incredibly beautiful, so it is a great honor."
"If we think of the interpretations that you have made, there was someone who felt like that extra?"
" I think that ”My favoritvals” is very beautiful, I am very proud of. I think it was very good. So it is well in such cases."
"”An incurable romantic with feelings on the outside”"
"The songs you have interpreted is very much about unrequited love. Has there been any thought with that?"
" I was just trying to make the songs as good as possible and trying to relate as closely as I can. To give love to the artist, and then I thought not much more of anything other than that."
"do you Have any special relationship to unrequited love?"
"– All the people I think experiencing it at some time during their life. I play a lot of soul and reggae, this is where I began my musical career. Then when you have a weakness for unrequited love. I have a disc called “About you”, which is about to finish something and start something new. I am an incurable romantic with feelings on the outside."
"do you Have any reciprocated love?"
"– I'll keep That for myself. "
