It’s a cloudy day here in Bergen, and even if it wouldn’t be a cloud filled day I would have no choice but to sit here in front of my computer finishing up my university thesis. But I am also dreaming, of summer of course, so much that I in fact made a special summer playlist on Spotify to get me through these last weeks of the semester. From the beautiful islands of Italy to the french riviera, and then all the way to Brazil, with some fitting soul in between…

I never really got over Daft Punk’s SUPER hit Get Lucky. It has become one of my favourite songs of all time since it has so many of my favourite musical elements in the same songs. With Chic’s Nile Rodgers and Pharrell Williams featured on the track, it’s no wonder that Disco-DJ Dimitri from Paris decided to re-edit the song, as it fits perfectly as an added track to his already impressive set lists. Listen to the funky re-edit here:

1. I finally got around to see the Chanel Haute couture Spring/Summer 2014 show, and it was fantastic. The mix of music by one of my favourite artists Sebastien Tellier, the always beautiful Chanel style and the fun of the very sporty element of the shoes made this one for the fashion history books. Karl did it again!
2. Daft Punk featuring Pharrell featuring Stevie Wonder featuring Chic at the Grammy’s. This was one of my favourite songs of last year, and I loved this live collaboration, and especially seeing Ringo Starr, Paul McCartney and Yoko Ono get down to it! But Steven Tyrler, sorry, but your moves were a total #fail.
3. Katy B’s “Crying for no reason”. Such a beautiful song, both lyrically and musically. I especially love the beat change in the final chorus. So strong. Here is a beautiful live version:
