DAGFINN NORDBØ // ODD BØRRETZEN/LARS MARTIN MYHRE – NOEN GANGER ER DET ALL RIGHT
NO ONE SAW IT COMING. The story of the record success «Noen ganger er det all right»
Odd Børretzen and Lars Martin Myhre released the record in 1995, and to the artists' enormous astonishment, it sold close to 200,000 copies. The title song, which was named "Tidenes Norske Hit", is a calm jazz ballad in 5/4 time where this elderly man finally repeats the chorus seven times! This is the story of how a narrow cultural expression won the hearts of the Norwegian people, with lyrics by a seventy-year-old satirist who had no desire to make records or stand on stage at all, but rather just be on a boat in the summer, drinking his red wine and smoke his pipe.
