I start with Brainpool.
They come from Lund, Sweden, and had their share of the limelights in the mid-90s. I got my first listening on the band when both me and my sister were still living at our parents - in the mid-90s: My sister had gone to Helsinki with her class, like a field trip. She bought me my prom shoes (do you still remember Decadenz in Helsinki?) that I still have (btw). My sister later said that she only bought the Brainpool Soda album just because it was on sale and the cover of the album was cool. I gave Soda a listen and immediately fell in love. Every once in a while I still pull my Brainpool albums out of the boxes and take a trip on my memory line.
I chose here two songs: Invisible to Her (taken from their second album Painkiller) and Every Day (taken from their first album, Soda). Have a listen and make up your own mind!
ps you can follow me on Spotify to get a deeper look at "my music, my jukebox".
She walks the streets of our hometown
Tall and tanned and lovely and young
She passes daily by my window
I smile at her but she doesn't see
But I know:
There is no use
When there's a chance to win I lose
Yeah I know:
I'm invisible to her
Brainpool: Invisible to Her
