Jukebox Saturday Night for January 6th, 2018: Norwegian Mood and Summer Madness -OR- No Weather Control Edition

Given the outdoor frigidity of this Saturday night, I think it only appropriate to start out with this song ...

"Norwegian Mood" by Øysten Sevåg from his Close Your Eyes and See album (1989)

This is a wonderful YouTube video version (and the only one I could find), especially the second half with the suitable winter and aurora borealis footage. I really hope it doesn't get taken down.

Note: I could not definitively determine the date of this album -- I found 1989, 1991, and 1993.


And as a seasonal counterpoint ...

"Summer Madness" by Richard Elliot from his album of same name (2016)

This is a really lovely song -- but I'm not sure I would have called it Summer Madness but something else. It doesn't suggest summer to me.


And we'll end with something suitably Saturday night upbeat ...

"Make Me Lose Control" by Eric Carmen from his album The Best of Eric Carmen (1988)


OK, that's all for now. Please see my previous entry for a Saturday Evening Post entry. I may try to post a political-themed entry a bit later.
