Day 21 – A song that you listen to when you’re happy

This one was a bit tricky on the same time as it was easy. It was tricky, because I never really pay attention to what songs I lisen to when I’m happy, since there aren’t exactly a “need” to remember what song it was, like with a song when you’re sad which can be good to bring up again if you need to be cheered up. However, I did find one that I love to listen to when I’m high on life.

United in a Scream” by nowegian rockband Return. The song was released on their third album “Straight Down the Line” back in 1989.

This is one of those songs I just absolutely love. It has this amazing feel-good vibe to it, and the lyrics are pretty… common, I guess, they are pretty much what I’d expect in a song like this. The song instantly makes me think of festivals, of camping, of concerts, of summer and of happiness. Because festivals = happiness. There is not greater place than festivals, let me just say that.

Fun, or perhaps sad thing, about this is that I discovered this band pretty recently, only earlier this year actually. While at Skogsröjet, I was sitting with my Sweden Rock bag from 2012 and looking through the bands talking with Ludvig, Albin and Michelle about the bands, when I noticed the little “Return” being mentioned on one of the lines.

Are you like kidding me? Did I LITERALLY MISS OUT ON THIS BAND ON SWEDEN ROCK TWO YEARS AGO?!

Apparently I did. And this is why I have now promised myself to never ever again not listen through every band that comes to a festival I’m going to, so I don’t do the same mistake again. Damn it.
