Ida Maria – Oh my God (mp3) [download this song]

Last year, my Christmas post was about the Devil. This year it is about God.

I wanted to talk about Ida Maria for ages. I actually already mentionned her quite a long time ago. But it was not a proper post and when I was about to focus on this girl from Norway who lives in Stockholm, the buzz started about her and I did not want to be a part of that. Still her song Oh my god is just great. Probably one minute too long. But very punchy.

There is something funny about her video though. I have actually never seen anyone mentionning that it reminded a lot – I mean A LOT – the great C.Aarmé‘s Golden Retriever‘s one. Have a look by yourself : am I making any sense ? And oh, yep, I forgot… merry Christmas !

Pour mes compatriotes français

L’an passé, mon billet sur Noël traitait du Diable. Cette année, il sera question de Dieu.

Cela fait des lustres que je souhaite parler d’Ida Maria. Je l’avais certes déjà évoquée il y a quelques temps. Mais cette Norvégienne qui habite à Stockholm ne correspondait pas au coeur du billet. Ensuite, il y a eu un buzz autour d’elle et j’ai décidé de ne pas en rajouter. Malgré tout, Oh my god est une divine surprise d’une efficacité diabolique. Sans doute une minute trop longue. Mais assurément euphorisant.

Il existe toutefois un fait troublant à propos de sa vidéo. Je ne crois pas que quelqu’un l’ait déjà remarqué, mais elle évoque beaucoup – je veux dire BEAUCOUP – le Golden Retriever des excellents C.Aarmé. Jetez un oeil : je me trompe ? Ah, j’oubliais… joyeux Noël !

    This song is not the same without Timo…
    And by the way, the video resemblance, I want to think it is a kind of tribute, because it looks TOO MUCH the same.

    That being said, I love Ida Maria.

    Cheers,
