Vagar Du Vagar Jag - Sanna Nielsen

After a gap of around 5 months, am back to blogging. Been really busy with work & health also wasn't good. Got to hear some really amazing music in these 5 months. A few songs have become my daily routine as am finding it difficult to do without them.

Today I bring to you an absolutely stunner, upbeat, uptempo Schlager song sung by Swedish singer Sanna Nielsen. Its called Vagar Du, Vagar Jag which means If you dare, I dare too. This Schlager gem has been composed by Schlager legend Fredrik Kempe alongwith 2 other greats Bobby Ljunggren & Henrik Wikstrom.

Arrangements are mind-blowing & singing is top notch. Been listening to it for past 6 months & haven't been able to get it off my head. Yes, its that addictive. You'll definitely appreciate Perrelli's high pitched singing. The key-change towards the end is awesome. Fredrik seems to have put all his efforts in the arrangement. Unforgettable. The bridge is perhaps the best part of this song. Such an upbeat, uptemp…
