Lukas Graham “Funeral”

Well, in an earlier blog I talked about Lukas Graham and how I am a big fan. He is definitely a gem in the music industry. I believe he gained notoriety in the States from his single “7 years,” which is absolutely one of my favorite songs by the band. I should add here that Lukas Graham is a band and not just one person, although the front man of the group is Lukas Graham and they are from Denmark. In this blog I really wanted to talk about another one of Lukas Graham’s songs which is “Funeral.” The moment I heard it on YouTube I instantly fell in love with it. You know the moment you hear a good song and you have to cock your head a little bit and say “oh my goodness..this is pure genius!” Yeah, that was basically me in a nutshell. So the song is basically about this guy who dies but he doesn’t want his friends to be sad about. There’s a line towards the beginning of the song that says, “Everyone welcome to my funeral, everyone I know better be wasted…” It’s like he saying to just celebrate his life and have a few drinks. It’s really supposed to be an uplifting song in my opinion because not only are the lyrics somewhat encouraging but the whole vibe of the song really has a spiritual/gospel like, almost soulful quality about it. That is one thing about Lukas Graham though. He is a very soulful singer and to be who is that is amazing and I thoroughly enjoy his music. I would definitely love to see him in concert.

 

Lukas Graham

As you may have figured out, I love music. Hence, part of the title of my blog and I just love discovering new music and talent. Lukas Graham became one of my favorite artists over the past year. The first song that I remember from him and a song that really made him a success was the song “7 Years.” I absolutely love this song, but have you ever been in a situation when you get stuck on just one song by an artists so you can’t really call yourself a fan of a musician if you just know only one of their popular songs, so for me I thought it was important to go on YouTube and listen to some more of his music and what I found out is that Lukas Graham is a rare talent. He may be a white boy from Denmark, but one thing is for sure: That boy has soul. For me, I like unique, soulful, and different music. Don’t get me wrong, I also love music that doesn’t really have a meaning but is fun to listen to but Lukas Graham is just plain awesome. Since I discovered him there hasn’t really been a song that I disliked. I would have to say that my favorites though are “7 Years,” “Mama Said,” “Red Wine,” and “Funeral.” In a later blog I’ll have to go into a deeper analysis of  some of these songs and what I find intriguing about them. Don’t be hesitant to discover new artists and new music. It’s well worth it!
