Told You

På selveste bryllupsdagen hennes skulle Eva Weel Skram fra Eva & The Heartmaker hylles i Hver gang vi møtes. Unni hadde valgt låten 'Told You' og forvandlet den på en sånn måte at VGs anmelder kalte henne «Oslos Dolly Parton».

Unni selv har skrevet om Eva og låtvalget HER...




Femmer i VG :
«Oslos Dolly Parton skuffer ikke. Unni hater fiksfakserier og kler denne låta naken inn til beinet – eller inn til melodien, om du vil. Og den er i utgangspunktet sterk. I dette tilfellet oppdager vi faktisk i Unnis versjon hvor sterk den er. Det ørlille country-elementet er dessuten en helt riktig farvelegging av den. Suverent!»
TV2s og Unnis Facebook :
Linda Frigstad: «Fantastisk!!!:-) Den har jeg lyst til å høre igjen:-)»

Birgitte Vilberg: «Og så flott levering av deg Unni <3 Må også si at jeg digga den lyseblå kjolen din.... Smashing good looking girl ass ;)»

Marit Helene Gullien: «Birgitte Vilberg har helt rett. Jeg synes også du er en av Norges aller fineste formidlere og du har en utrolig fin stemme.»

Anne Eriksen: «Unni er en artist med stor A. SUPERFLOTT.»

Roar Bjørn Krane Sundheim :«Ravi og henning og unni:)Dem va best i dag synes eg:)Særlig henning:)For en mann:)Aldeles utrolig:)»

Kate Anita Sundsethaug: «Unniiiiii!!!!! Du ruler!»

Ann Kristin Thorsen: «Blir helt matt (og misunnelig ) fordi du alltid tar deg så fabelaktig godt ut :) Dine tolkninger er magiske :) Tusen takk for at du og resten av gjengen beriker mine lørdager 😙»


Tekst 'Told you':

I told you, I wanna know you
I wanna feel you, I wanna breathe you
I wanna kiss you until the day you die
I told you, I wanna see you
I wanna make you mine because I need you
Then I’ll love you until the day I die
So don’t ever forget you’re mine

So tell me you’ll never leave me
I wanna tie you down ‘til you believe me
Then I’ll whisper, “I’ll always be around”
You see I told you, I wanna have you
I wanna own the right to hold you
Then I won’t let go until the end of time
So don’t ever forget you’re mine

How can you look the other way
When I’m begging you to stay
It’s eating me alive, that you always run and hide

I told you, I wanna know you
I wanna feel you, I wanna breathe you
I wanna kiss you until the day you die
You see I told you, I wanna have you
I wanna own the right to hold you
And then I won’t let go until the end of time
So don’t ever forget you’re mine

So how can you look the other way
When I’m begging you to stay
It’s eating me alive, that you always run and hide

Don’t say that it’s too late
When I’m asking you to wait
I’m scared I’ll lose my mind
‘cause you’re leaving me behind

I told you, I wanna know you
I wanna feel you, I wanna breathe you
I wanna kiss you until the day you die

Unni om sitt valg av låt:

Eva Weel Skram is probably born to be on stage, and it seems she always knew. Some musicians are shy and uncomfortable off stage and in social situations, and flabbergastingly comfortable on stage. Eva is not shy around others, but she's even more present when she sings. As if spotlights, stages, microphones and audiences are the most natural thing on earth.

I envy her that ability, as I still see performing as a challenge, even after 20 years as a live musician. To be honest, I'd rather be home alone with my guitars, my piano and my songs without anyone hearing me, even if I make my living as a professional solo concert artist. I never seem to shake the feeling that singing is just too personal to do in public. Eva is a living proof of the oposite, and she has the skills and the self confidence to both give her audience an experience AND seem to have the time of her life when she's singing on TV!

While many of us participating in the TV-show 'Hver gang vi møtes' went around the farm being anxious or nervous about our upcoming performances, Eva was tweeting like a bird on how excited she was, and how much she looked forward to singing her versions of our songs to us. If she hadn't been so darned good at it, it would've been irritating. But Eva always delivers, it seems. In addition, she has a strong sense of melodies, composition and how things should sound. She's passionate about details and how to get to where she wants to be, and together with her husband Thomas Stenersen, she does as she pleases in the duo 'Eva & The Heartmaker'. They are a great match, and they make strong, hit-oriented popmusic with melodies as spines, and Thomas' energetic guitars creating the muscle mass.

After listening to a number of songs from this duo, I ended up choosing a song called 'Told you', for my performance in Eva's episode. It has a catchy melody, an energetic core, and a modern sound. I felt it could be arranged or produced in many directions, but in my head I heard bluegrass elements, and I decided to see how that idea would go with fit band. The idea certainly suited my small G-sharp guitar. These guitars I often use, are designed and developed by Fredrikstad's Øivin Fjeld, and they've become my main companions on stage the past years. They can sound quite different depending on which pedals or sound effects I use, and they fit my small fingers and travel easily. The band went along with my idea perfectly, and suddenly we had a 'Dolly Parton' thing going!

It's time to present the band who've flawlessly backed us in so many different styles and directions this season:

Lars Kristian Folkvord (bass), Haakon-Marius Pettersen (piano), Truls Hval (guitars), Kristian Kvalvaag (guitars), Marie Klåpbakken (violins and vocals), and on drums: Torstein Lofthus UnniEvaHGVM
