I’m going to start by more than likely the most famous person on this list, the 90s one-hit wonder turned 2000s icon. Robyn’s reinventing herself has given us one of the greatest breakup songs ever. I really hate the slow covers of this song; they’re turning empowerment into a pity party.
I have a love-hate relationship with Tove Lo; I dislike most of her songs but I absolutely love their remixes; the Stockholm native is probably the most known artist on this list but I had to include her because her tracks are some of the ones that spin the most in my hears.
I miss badass female performers; the ones that talked about emancipation and strength that defined themselves without referring to others; whenever I hear the Dutch songstress anthem, I feel the same dose of energy coursing through my body that I did the first time I heard the song.
There’s more to Iceland than Bjork, Sigur Ros, and volcanoes. It only a few notes of Easy to take me back to the 90s summers, when life was simpler and first loves were developing.
Kerli is most amazing Tim Burton creation that he’s never done; the Estonian artist has always had a very unique sound that matches her ethereal aesthetic.
When she’s not fighting the Terminator, Sarah Connor used to be known for really bad poppy songs like Let’s get back to bed, boy but in a surprising twist of fate, the German pop idol found her voice, her identity and I really dig this older Sarah Connor.
My favorite Norwegian artist and by far; if I might have that one famous song for A-ha, I have a few songs from Lene Marlin’s album Playing My Game.
The 98 Grammy Award nominated artist is part of the 90s trend every country tried to have their own Britney Spears but like in most cases, she ended up a one-hit wonder.
I’m going to end this with the artist who inspired this post; this Sita’s song popped into my hears and reminded my how much I love her French album way more than her English ones. Nothing like a woman speaking French with an accent to melt my heart.
Based on the numbers of views, I’m probably one of the very few people who remember this song and I don’t care; I love the nostalgia. The version on my phone was recorded on the radio and has a callout to it in the lyrics of the song.
Everyone old to have seen Mirror’s Edge’s reveal trailer when it came out remembers the moment the first notes of Still Alive kicked in they knew this game would be something special. Despite being a commercial flop, the game gained a cult status.
