Kommentar: Seine Musik bietet Gute-Laune-Spaß für heiße Sommertage. Musik die nie langweilig wird, popige Songs und sehr unterhaltsam. Perfekte Musik für den ZDF-Fernsehgarten… Top!
OBZ: Do you write your own songs?
FAGERLUND: I actually just started writing myself, I’ve got one song on the new album which I co-wrote with Samuel Waermö and Didrik Thott (who wrote the melodifestivalen song Welcome to my life), it’s called Ready 4 it!
OBZ: What does your songs evolve from?
FAGERLUND: I tend to find inspiration in various things, it’s important to take good care of it when it does come around though!
OBZ: You also write for other artists. Is the collaboration important to you?
FAGERLUND: I haven’t written for anyone else yet, but it may be something for the future 🙂
OBZ: Is music for you a feeling of life? Do you think music should play an important role in people’s life?
FAGERLUND: I think that music does play an important part of everyone’s lives. Music can help people express how they feel not only to other people but to themselves.
OBZ: Do you always play your music live? Is that important to you?
FAGERLUND: Definitely! I play music all the time! When I work out, when I walk around in town, in school aso.
OBZ: With whom would you like to work together?
FAGERLUND: I have to admit that my dream duet partner is Kylie Minogue! Such an amazingly talented woman with great music.
OBZ: What was the most embarrassing thing that happened to you? Was it on a concert? Or was it on another event?
FAGERLUND: Hm! Hard question! My dancers and I had a lot of fun on tour last summer. In one song we dance pretty closely and suddenly out of nowhere they started tickling me (of course in a way that the audience didn’t see) which made me burst out laughing and lookin pretty stupid to the rest of the people. Pretty embarrassing 😉
OBZ: People can buy your music here in the shops. Where else could people get your music from?
FAGERLUND: https://www.amazon.de/Welcome-World-Jonathan-Fagerlund-2009-05-18/dp/B01G64T0YK/ref=sr_1_1?__mk_de_DE=%C3%85M%C3%85%C5%BD%C3%95%C3%91&dchild=1&keywords=jonathan+fagerlund&qid=1588751036&sr=8-1 – ships my new album worldwide!
OBZ: Tell me about the greatest experience you had with your fans.
FAGERLUND: Every time people travel to come see one of my gigs is the most amazing feeling. I think I’ve got the best supporters in the world!!!
OBZ: Is it important to you to keep in contact with your fans?
FAGERLUND: Of course! I try to be as active as possible on myspace and my website. It’s very important to me!
OBZ: What is the most important thing in your life?
FAGERLUND: My family, without them none of this would be possible and I’m deeply thankful for their involvement in my career.
OBZ: Imagine you had one free wish. What would you wish for?
FAGERLUND: Either world piece or a wish to be able to eat all the crap in the world without gaining a pound! Probably depending on what mood I’d be in 😉
OBZ: Have you ever been to Germany before?
FAGERLUND: I do indeed, a lot of my relatives are living in Germany so therefore the reunions are held there. I like it!
OBZ: Imagine now you have the opportunity to thank all your friends and family. What would you say to them?
FAGERLUND: My friends are amazing, I’m probably pretty hard to keep in touch with sometimes but they always understand me. I’m very thankful for having the friends I do, and even more so with my family.
