Here's something a little different for your Monday morning.
Check out "We Did It All" by Norwegian pop singer Grande. The song is taken from his upcoming debut album "Uppers, Downers, Screamers & Howlers" that will be out in stores in Norway on November 19.
Inspired by artists as diverse as Duke Ellington and Ultravox, Grande (whose full name is Kjetil Grande) first picked up a guitar when he was 15 years old. He tried to learn how to play from his mom's Lillebjørn Nilsens Guitarbook, but he "skipped the first pages of the book, cause I didn't want to learn no chords," he writes on his MySpace page. "I tell ya, there wasn't [sic] too many cool licks in Lillebjørn Nilsens GuitarBook, but as soon as I stopped doin' my homework I figured out how to play."
"We Did It All" is a fun, snappy guitar ditty that shows off Grande's falsetto that he is able to keep up throughout the song.
