Poänglös padding in the So much better
Poänglös padding in the ”So much better”

Sticky worse when Monica Zetterlund hailed

Hyllningsavsnittet was no final.

It was the padding where some artists tried to bake a chocolate cake.

Roll out the dough. Wring out the dish cloth. Squeeze out the last drop out of the vinlådan.

Cold tribute to Monica Zetterlund, for what you want, but directly necessary was not.

Hyllningsavsnitten is mostly a way for TV4 to milk his succéko a week, and it shows.

Programmes never get the same charge as when the artists sing each other's material. It sounded most like this around the dinner table:


the Story of Monica Zetterlund, of course, deserve every single tv minute she can get. Jazzartisten, singer and actress from Hagfors is just as central for the Swedish pop - and composed as the red cottage with white trim is in rural areas.

There is plenty to discover with her.

Warm, cool and crass. No bullshit

the Album ”Waltz for Debby”, which she recorded in Stockholm together with the Bill Evans Trio in 1964, has become a standard work both in Sweden and abroad.

in Addition, was his friend and colleague Kerstin Bagge is a welcome character of the old school:

Warm, cool and crass. No bullshit.

Zetterlunds music is so associated with her that there rarely is anything to add for other artists. They disappear in her shadow. The original is always better.

Albin Lee Meldau and Linnea Henriksson managed to the best, the other... was most there.

Big conjured up Seinabo Sey, one of Sweden's best artists and singers. If it's been cross-country, it had probably been classed as doping.

But even in that case it became nothing more than a passing Zetterlund-karaoke.

Any bomb that resembled the album as Tomas Andersson Wij did on Sven-Erik Magnusson's ”When the sun tints the juninatten” last year was, at least, not that I perceive.

this is season over. No, the next section, where the participants reunited don't count. It is maskföda for commercial breaks.

the Music convinced not very much or often, but on the other hand, the program find your way back to the first season for a more casual charm and warmth. And the nice section about Albin Lee Meldau will have a place in the show also starred Hall Of Fame.

But where is the album?

After Petter, Timbuktu, Ken Ring, Ison & Fille and, above all, Great is the hip-hop, an equally established genre in the program directory.

But where is the album?

How is it possible that one of the most popular expressions still not have been seen in the ”So much better”?

what if Tobias Forge of Ghost, more commonly known as the Pope from Linköping, participated in the full livery as Papa Emeritus Zero with the mask and fiendish cover?

”Is it true? You should do the ’Depth of Satan's eyes’, Mariette? What fun!”

It would be better tv than to show how Big and Christer Sjögren trying to bake a pissed off brownies.

”Slowly we walk through town” (Eric Gadd)\\nGadd interpret one of Zetterlunds biggest showpieces, with autotune, hiphopbeats, and a muted trumpet. But in this case it is the shoes at least three sizes too large.

”Where were you?” (Christer Sjögren)\\nTage Her blood-red text, a bitter and disappointed showdown with the 70's lack of political ideals, is just as relevant today. Sjögren keeps his version close to the original, but it cuts out when he bends some of the words as Elvis.

”View from Utanmyra” (Albin Lee Meldau)\\nBästa version has no vocals. It is Jan Johansson's recording on the album ”Jazz in Swedish”. It is noticeable, however, Albin Lee Meldau love the song. Thanks to the voice, feels the interpretation ancient and new at the same time.

”I know a dejlig rosa” (Louise Hoffsten)\\he spirit of the participants, who perhaps gives the most in his version. It is clear that she interprets his idol.

”In the vine” (Charlotte Perrelli)\\n”Now becomes the ’lion king’,” says Perrelli before she starts to sing. It is never a good sign. And not even Timon and Pumbaa had been able to save this album.

”Some other time” (Linnea Henriksson)\\nStilfullt and inspired. Linnea Henriksson is really at home in the borderland between jazz and soul. Thoughts go to Norah Jones.

”Green little apples” (Big & Seinabo Sey)\\nStor and Seinabo has done duets before. They have a good chemistry. But this effort they not differ significantly. A strained hiphoptrudelutt.
