Catchy Pop that makes you want to sing along.

Biography

Mark Hvilsted is a singer/songwriter from Denmark with a passion for pop music.
Having taught himself to play the guitar and keyboard at age 12, he later learnt to play the saxophone and started writing songs. Drawn towards catchy tunes that make the listener hum along and tap their feet to the music, it was only a matter of time before Mark decided to sideline his R&B and jazz projects to concentrate on creating catchy pop tunes of his own, which has lead to a collection of over 500 songs.

This lead to playing small shows in and around his home city of Copenhagen, which in turn has lead to the recording of his first studio album. Already his first single ‘Game On’ is enjoying minor success in Canada and is being played regularly on Canadian college and Indie radio stations.

Marks varied influences make it impossible to describe his signature sound. Whether it be a happy pop song, a hard and fast pop rock song or a sweet ballad, all Marks tunes have the common thread of compelling the listener to tap their toes and sing along by the first chorus.

The album, ‘When Right In Bloom’, released by Juicyhalftone Records, was recorded at Ventura Studios in Copenhagen with some of the best Scandinavian musicians such as Jan Lysdahl, Gustaf Ljunggren, Rune Kjeldsen and Ole Kibsgaard

‘When Right In Bloom’ is due for release in January 09

Lyrics

Theres Something About You

Written By: Mark Hvilsted

There’s something about the way you try to look
It’s getting right to me deeper than it really should
What are you? An angel or just looking that good?

When you take your time you are so divine
I’m not surprised I’d like to watch you in this light

There’s something about the way you look tonight
There’s something about the way you look tonight

There’s something about the way you took my hand
I’m feeling it stronger than you might understand
Let it all last longer once I find me a plan

When you take your time you are so divine
I’m not surprised I’d like to watch you in this light

There’s something about the way you look tonight
There’s something about the way you look tonight

Whenever you get around to believing me you’ll see,
that I can’t help myself to be in this state of mind
I can almost let you hide
Undo your disguise
in this light

There’s something about the way you look tonight
There’s something about the way you look tonight
There’s something about the way you look tonight
There’s something about the way you look tonight

A Fool For You

Written By: Mark Hvilsted

One day I’ll tell you how it feels like
A day when everything is all right
I’d like to give it to you easy
I’m just hoping you can feel me

You think you got it going on girl
You move around in such a strange world,
where everybody lets it all out
You keep it in because you’re so proud

But you should know the meaning of a goal
I could have told you love is getting old
How you were there with flowers in your hair
Was getting scared cause love is never fair
But you don’t go so now I’m not so insecure
If you could show me how to get you out the door
No, I won’t lie. I can’t deny I will try; leaving without a goodbye

If you really wanna make my day
Just move into another place
Cause you don’t even know me anyway
This is just a lot of waste

And you don’t even got a clue
No, you don’t even know what to do
Cause every time I try to tell you,
you make it look like I am such a fool for you

But you should know the meaning of a goal…

If you really wanna make my day…

I know I’m just a fool for you.

Game On

Written By: Mark Hvilsted

Come by
if you can give it to me all night I don’t mind
It’s on you
If you don’t have somewhere to go to you can do
anything to me
We could be emotional and free

The game is on now. I’m ready to play
I’ll sex you up in a physical way
The game is on. It’s depending on me to sex you up now
I know it isn’t easy (No, it isn’t easy)
I know it isn’t easy (No, it isn’t easy)

Say no
If you don’t wanna be in my show you can go
If not you,
there is another girl I’m into. She can do
anything to me
We could be emotional and free

The game is on now…

So when the time is gone, I’ll be on my knees
I’m not that strong, saying pretty please
If you take me in, we can all begin
The world around you, baby, is about to spin

The game is on now…

Jaded

Written By: Mark Hvilsted

Investigation; it paid off.
My devotion; not enough.
Leaving everything behind.
Seeing what you’ve got in mind
and now you’re somewhat beautiful to me.
You know I’m not in love but out of time.
Almost out of time.
And I’m jaded but I made it home.
I’m wasted.
Now you know
I hate it when you wear me out.
I blame it all on you bringing me down.

Another question comes to life.
A conversation build on lies.
Another reason for my pain.
That’s why I send you on your way.
You are not so beautiful to me.
You know I’m not in love but out of time.
Almost out of time.
And I’m jaded but I made it home.
I’m wasted.
Now you know
I hate it when you wear me out.
I blame it all on you bringing me down.

Im jaded when you wear me out
I blame it all on you
And I’m jaded but I made it home.
I’m wasted.
Now you know
I hate it when you wear me out.
I blame it all on you bringing me down.

You bring me down

Irrisistible

Written By: Mark Hvilsted

No one tries to calm me down.
Get my feed back on the ground.
Why? Don’t you hope it’s going well?
Once I’m in that mood,
I can tell you what I’ll do.
I Gotta get on this carousel.

You should spin my world around.
Bring me what it’s all about
cause I really don’t know.
With all the time we have,
No wonder I’m being sad.
I’m feeling a new low.

You’re irresistible to me.
What can I say?
You’re too irresistible to see
I want you to stay
but I really don’t care cause I’m use to be in your way.

Someone; make me understand
how the hell it all began.
Why? Is there’s nothing more to tell?
Once I’m in that light
I will start to make it right.
I Gotta get on this carousel.

You should spin my world around.
Bring me what it’s all about
cause I really don’t know.
With all the time we have,
No wonder I’m being sad.
I’m feeling a new low.

You’re irresistible to me.
What can I say?
You’re too irresistible to see
I want you to stay
but I really don’t care cause I’m use to be in your way.

I could be your easy prey.

You’re irresistible to me.
What can I say?
You’re too irresistible to see
I want you to stay
You’re irresistible to me
You’re too irresistible to see
but I really don’t care cause I’m use to be in your way.
