All the things we said 2017
1972 ... some debuts that will not go unnoticed. Of course, their fame will not be global but sufficient to make them enter history ...
1973 ... a good-natured style that will forever remain his trademark. It is clear that he will never do anything like everyone else ...
1978 ... for the moment, he is more in the soft tempo. Not sure it will last like this for years and years ...
1979 ... he will have shown that in the field of pretty ballads, he knows how to do ! A whimsical singer but also a charming singer. Mighty character ...
1979 ... the end of the 1970s which saw him now stand on his own feet. Once again all in finesse and softness. Will he continue on the same path the next decade, not on ...
1981 ... we suspected that he would speed up the tempo somewhat at the start of the new decade, new musical trends oblige ...
1981 ... which will undoubtedly remain as one of his most emblematic titles. A title that will be a real hit in France this year but necessarily a little less elsewhere given the fact that it is sung in French ...
1981 ... well, there we go from one extreme to another with a track that spins at the speed of light. Not sure that this is the kind of tempo that the General Public expects ...
1983 ... return to normal mode and above all return to mother tongue. A turnaround that will brutally slow him down in terms of international success, necessarily ...
1984 ... he plays it more and more UFO during this decade 80, it is clear. The potential was obvious but he did not really know what to do with it internationally ...
1985 ... he continues his adventure quietly in his native country and is largely satisfied with it. Astonishing career management but it is his choice and that, nothing and nobody, can do much about it ...
1987 ... he is back in Group mode. This will not change anything over time concerning him but it at least has the merit of showing us another facet of its possibilities. We will be satisfied ...
1988 ... a delirious mode that he will have claimed until the end. Extremely rare fashion among Scandinavians who are not necessarily known to be specialists in this field ...
1989 ... that does not prevent him anyway from continuing to deliver titles which frankly hold the road. The proof with this title !
1989 ... back to supercharged mode. Quite the kind of titles that can be a hit in copiously watered evenings but not sure that it works in other cases ...
1994 ... an adventure which nevertheless reaches its limits, at least outside the Danish sphere. He still amused us the guy and that's the main thing !
