NEW NAME. NEW ORIGINAL SONGS. Being approved by Joni Mitchell to release 3 CDs with unknown and famous songs, the band now make their own music. NOTHERN SOUND started out with the acoustic based song "OPEN" (Henning Olsen). A positive, optimistic song about hope and changes. Who said OBAMA?

Biography

NORTHERN SOUND started as a duo with the name "Big Yellow Taxi" because it was a Joni Mitchell cover cafe-duo: "Our demo was heard on the internet by the serious fan club in USA and we were invited to a gathering in Big Indian near Woodstock called "Jonifest". In this connection we made our first CD "A tribute to Joni Mitchell" and were very well received: "they blew us away". Here we were given a lot of unreleased song from Joni live-concerts and radioshows with unknown and unreleased songs that we later were approved to release by Sony ATV and Joni. 3 songs on "Unknown and Famous Songs of Joni Mitchell" and later 11 songs on "Treasures of Joni Mitchell".

Megaphone: Roll up Roll up ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls
Mister and Missisipies, I can tell you, a splendid time is guarantied for all

We hope you will enjoy the show tonight
Nothing is real but everything’s all right
We will take you back in time to where it all began
So have a seat and take a break and, let’s celebrate the band

LOVE LOVE
M: Roll up, Roll up boys and girls

The kaleidoscope will look into the sky
Where submarines and a clean machines will pass you by
You might see a walrus in Albert Hall with diamonds high above
And fly with the fool and chairman Mao into a world of love

LOVE LOVE
AND SUNSHINE
FOREVER
M: Please welcome her Majesty and Lovely Rigby on this helter skelter

SOLO

Here comes the mother natures sun, and a paperback writer for the fun
Turn of your mind, we’ll turn you on, the magical tour has just begun
The egg man and Mr. somewhere man come together back in USSA again
A blackbird is singing a peaceful verse, flying across the universe

LOVE LOVE
M: The octopus will perform with little piggies
AND SUNSHINE
FOREVER
M: All you need is an open mind

LOVE LOVE
LOVE
YEAH YEAH YEAH
M: Ladies and gentlemen: Prepare for the landing and let it be

OPEN

Morning, with you on my mind, walking into the sunshine
It’s time for better times
Morning, yesterday ‘s gone. I’m ready to start all over
There’s daybreak in my heart

The hope is new like morning dew, I even believe in love woh oh oh

OPEN TO CHANGES
TO START ALL OVER
OPEN TO CHANGES OPEN…….

Watching the clouds in the sky, drifting like thoughts above me
My mind is a silent lake
Watching a swan passing by, sailing upon the mirror,
in the middle of the healing heat

The singing trees, my mind at ease, makes me believe again woh oh oh

OPEN TO CHANGES
TO START ALL OVER
OPEN TO CHANGES OPEN…….

OPEN

CARRY ME AWAY

Written By: HENNING OLSEN

CARRY ME AWAY © Henning Olsen

A
The time’s going slow, I watch here from my window
The children they play and carry me away
They open my eyes and open my heart
Showing me how life is a wonder
They carry me away here and now

A
The time’s going slow, I wake up to the radio
The music they play carry me away
A touch of a string, is a touch of the spring
Notes from the sky and life is a wonder
They carry me away here and now

B
As long as I live I will live for today
And remember the way I got carried away
And ask all my fiends when I die
“carry me home - my home isn’t so far away”

A
The time’s going slow I sit here in the shadow
Butterflies play they carry me away
They play in the wind playing within
Showing me how life is a wonder
They carry me away here and now

carry me home - my home isn’t so far away

TWICE AS STRONG

Written By: HENNING OLSEN

TWICE AS STRONG © Henning Olsen

A. ) THERE’S A TRUTH WE ALL KNOW
EVERYTHING’S COMING BACK IN A WAY
EVEN THINGS THAT YOU DON’T SHOW
AND THINGS YOU SAY RETURN TO YOU AGAIN ONE DAY

A. ) THERE’S A LOVE DEEP INSIDE
THERE’S EMOTIONS I’M TRYING TO HIDE
BUT NO MATTER WHAT I DO
IT ALL COMES BACK TWICE AS STRONG WHEN I’M WITH YOU

CHORUS: I’M TWICE AS STRONG
I’ M TWICE AS WEAK
I’M TWICE AS ALIVE
ALL I DO IS COMING BACK TWICE AS STRONG ‘CAUSE I LOVE YOU

B.) I’VE BEEN ALL ALONE BEFORE AND BABY I’VE BEEN DOWN
WE ALL KNOW HOW IT FEELS MISSING SOMEONE
BUT THE HIGHER YOU TAKE ME THE DEEPER I’M FALLING
AND I’M TWICE AS ALONE WHEN YOU’RE GONE

CHORUS: I’M TWICE AS STRONG
I’ TWICE AS WEAK
I’M TWICE AS ALIVE
ALL I DO IS COMING BACK TWICE AS STRONG ‘CAUSE I LOVE YOU

A. ) THERE’S A TRUTH WE ALL KNOW
EVERYTHING’S COMING BACK IN A WAY
EVEN THINGS THAT YOU DON’T SHOW
AND THINGS YOU SAY RETURN TO YOU AGAIN SOME DAY
