Awesome! Thanks for sharing... I want more Norwegian music. I've been holding on to Kaizer's Orchestra/Janove Ottesen for so long.

Thanks for pointing her out! Selfishly, I hope it ends up being worthwhile for her to come to the States on tour someday -- those live performances look like a good damn time.

What else should she be in Norway?

I want more Norwegian music.

Veronica Maggio's swedish, tho. And pretty famous in her home country, as well.

Veronica Maggio's swedish, tho.

Duly noted, but close enough for me. Both are pretty understandable if you switch some 'a's and 'o's around. I'm surprised I didn't notice in listening to the songs, though.

Indeed, I should have probably mentioned that she's done well in Sweden, her native country, too.

This was a nice surprise. I was expecting her to sound so Motowny.

Veronica Maggio shouldn't just be popular in Norway.

She should be exalted there?

Or should it be "VM shouldn't be popular in just Norway."

Snark aside, great post, eschatfische.

VM just shouldn't be popular in Norway?

I think what the poster means is:
It should be the case that there is a country x (where x is not Norway) in which Veronica Maggio is popular.
but what was posted is:
It should be the case that there is a property y (where y is not popularity) that Veronica Maggio possesses in Norway.
I agree with both statements.

i.e., It should be the case that there is a country x (where x is not Norway) in which Veronica Maggio possesses the property y (where y is not popularity).
posted by found missing at 10:21 AM on January 28, 2010


There is a country x (almost any country from the set of ![Norway]) that Veronica Maggio possesses property y (lack of fame).
posted by DU at 10:43 AM on January 28, 2010


/me wipes sweat off forehead

Agreed.
posted by hellslinger at 10:48 AM on January 28, 2010


question: Does Veronica Maggio possess property in or out of Norway?

Damn...I clicked on this thinking it had something to do with Veronica Mars. Still cancelled, huh?
posted by hal_c_on at 11:04 AM on January 28, 2010


For those of you who likey the Norwegian Pop, you should definitely seek out a band called The Little Hands of Asphalt.

There's a ton more where this came from, kids. Dive in! Norway's an amazing place for homegrown greatness.
posted by Lipstick Thespian at 11:11 AM on January 28, 2010


Perhaps the post means that

It should be the case that there is a country x and property y (with x not equal to Norway OR y not equal to popularity) such that Veronica Maggio possesses y in x.

I should be popular outside of Norway too, but you don't see me complaining.

Perhaps some statements about Veronica Maggio are not reducible to first order logic,
posted by kuatto at 1:22 PM on January 28, 2010


Actually, if we're gonna be really picky she's of Swedish Italian origin. Spent some time in Italy, and some in Sweden, making that poptastic mix that is her. Swedish Italian is a great mix, Isabella Rosselini paved the way. ;)
posted by dabitch at 1:49 PM on January 28, 2010


There exists a statement s about Veronica Maggio that is not reducible to Nth order logic, for some N in {1,2,3...}.

My favourite adorable Norwegian singer will always be Marit Larsen. She sings much folkier stuff and she's adorable. :)
posted by Talez at 3:25 PM on January 28, 2010


She must have a fair amount of money if she has property in Italy too. Are Italians ok with people living outside of their country holding land? Even if they're popular (or not) inside (or outside) for the country? I'm just wondering, as it all seems so convoluted. What was this about again? Norway?
posted by Zack_Replica at 3:27 PM on January 28, 2010


for the country = of the country. I'm confused, you see.
posted by Zack_Replica at 3:29 PM on January 28, 2010


Wow. While I really like the Magdasbarn song, it was a terrible choice for that Norwegian X Factor girl. Listening to the original Veronica Maggio version first made that girl's voice sound like a honking, rusty trumpet.
posted by Gucky at 5:20 PM on January 28, 2010


No no. She's fine right where she is.
posted by clarknova at 5:28 PM on January 28, 2010


Curse you, eschatfische. Her first album is on iTunes and Amazon, and it sounds like it's OK, but her second album, which sounds about twice as awesome from the links you posted here, is nowhere to be seen aside from the Swedish iTunes store. I may just look into how to set up foreign iTunes accounts because of this.

OK, she's a babe...but a little too pop-y for me. But "The Little Hands of Asphalt" ring my chimes, so thanks, Lipstick Thespian.

Thanks for sharing both Veronica and The Little Hands of Asphalt. I love the line 'we'll put it in Ikea frames' in a song titled Oslo :)

six-or-six-thirty: For your more norsk wants, I suggest (as always) Ane Brun. Hit up the jukebox link in the right column on the front page. Seriously good.
