On the black Sunday afternoon
Sun is pale like the moon
When you look to the sky
Holy holy why
All fades into blue
On the black Sunday afternoon

No good time to walk alone
On a bike riding home
When you look to the sky
Holy holy why
All fades into blue
On the black Sunday afternoon

Bad luck come at just a car
On the right side hears a call
And sees a black ref flying low
Bother head no mistletoe
Nothing really moves
On black Sunday afternoons

You wake up in a water-bed
and on the back of your head
A lump and just a tiny hole
Almost no light at all in here
When you call
You can't hear your own voice at all

They gather up, something's wrong
The ask around, no one knows
Well have you been where the rivers cross
By the water in the moss
Nothing really moves
On black Sunday afternoons

Sun is pale like the moon
When you look to the sky
Holy holy, holy holy why
All fades into blue
On black Sunday afternoons

Bother head?  Surely that's 'above her head'

Couldn't agree with you more, fellow Torontonian!

Er, well Scandinavian countries are close and similar, such that their languages can be mutually understood (other than the Finnish, which has a totally different root from Swedish, Danish and Norwegian). Just watch The Bridge to know this, or visit a 'border' city like Malmo or Copenhagen and listen to folk speaking.

 
Ahh, The Bridge. Would that my local network could produce anything that gripping.
I am going to see her next Tuesday for the third time. I hope she will play Black Sunday Afternoon on what will probably be a beautiful Blue Tuesday Night.
viking blues, interesting
I love a few of Anna's songs, but this is my favorite by far.. and the theme is missing children, which hits home with me due to scenarios of my youth....

There is something grey and depressing about winter Sunday afternoons after the days have shortened and the weather closes in. Best to spend them getting slowly sozzled in nice bright pubs surrounded by people :*)

Another discovery for me on RP.


Good stuff ! 
Stops me cold every time I hear this.  And yes, the live version is better - I miss the whistling when I listen to the CD.

Time to sip some tea and reflect. Love this tune.{#Cheers}

Not quite as good as ( enter your favourite modern female singer singwriter here ie edie brickell - beth orton etc  )

Bill did play Bjork's version in days of yore.
Cool song. Great voice.
Aaaah , very calm song but is a little repetitive

Bill loves the girls.  So do I....grew up with Lesley and Dusty... then Grace, Janis...Lydia...Ann...Patti.....Chrissie...and the onslaught since....Love em!

Whoa, G! Sorry I missed it before on "nearly every day". Must have been distracted by, oh, I don't know, work, or life. I'll listen more attentively next time. My bad.
Need this one too...where's Santa?
Thanks Bill, another great little album, played it just last night whilst cooking the roast, nice!

In b/w because the colours just frankly looked disgusting :P A picture I like because it shows her apart from that dark and shy artist/person she accused of beeing all the time :)

 
Thanks for all your images Calypso, Great work!!!

They have similar voices, but musically they're pretty different.  Of course, to some listeners here, all female singers sound alike.

Nice.

Anna Ternheim.

"Today must have been one of the strangest days
I found a place where I could stay
And people say that it will kill me,
But they don't understand
People never do, but it makes sense to me
To be senseless to change my plans for you

It's a new secret I have found
And I'm off solid grounds for you"


do they still make water beds?
I have the cd. It's a pleasure to listen to her voice. Nice melodies{#Boohoo}

I really liked this song and a few others from different albums played here. This was the first I purchased and was unfortunately very disappointed. The rest of the album lacks the substance of this song.

Now THAT'S funny!

I cannot tell you why but I really like this song.

i realized i like this station because i like  lyrics which are—-interesting in some way, and most of the music is excellent.She;s good.
I like the Sundays, by the way...that woman had a pretty voice, too.

Well done...
Anna's voice reminds me of a local singer songwriter whom I love - Geri X.  She splits her time between the Tampa, Florida area and southeast Wisconsin.  Check her out. 
You can tell this music is mixed by a person, he seems to default to the same good music all the time!

I really hate it today, and it seems I did last time as well. Not gonna rate it without another listen.

This is a bit different then her older stuff. I like it...
What a beautiful, interesting voice!
