Eric Steuer, best known for his work with Creative Commons and for his music project Meanest Man Contest, made a guest mixtape for the awesome LA-based country music blog "When You Awake." The playlist is a blend of country and western classics covered in other languages. It is verifiably awesome.
Guest Mixtape: Other Countries [When You Awake]
Above, a YouTube smush-up of one of the tunes Eric selected: Inger Lise Rypdal belting out "Fru Johnsen" (1968), a Norwegian cover of "Harper Valley PTA." (Wikipedia, IMDB, DVD) YouTube uploader Anewargentina paired the song with film footage from the movie of the same name (which spawned a TV sitcom). How do you say yee-haw in Norwegian?
