Hallandale Beach Blog -A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden. In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

You Only Live Twice -Sometimes when you least expect it, from the most unlikely of sources, comes something to smile about: Freddie Wadling on SVT's 'Go'kväll' and "Skavlan'


SVT video: Freddie Wadling - You Only Live Twice (Live Go'Kväll 2011) December 14, 2011. http://youtu.be/LN_ISU_wMQY


You Only Live Twice -Sometimes when you least expect it, from the most unlikely of sources, comes something to smile about: Freddie Wadling with Fläskkvartetten on SVT's Go'kväll and Skavlan.

At 46:35 below, the title song from the 1967 James Bond/007  film "You Only Live Twice," by John Barry and Leslie Bricusse, originally sung by Nancy Sinatra, here with vocals by Freddie Wadling and music by Fläskkvartetten

SVT video: Skavlan, Episode 13 of 13, Christmas Special
Originally aired December 31, 2011

This video is available on the SVT website until Monday January 30, 2012.

Here is what in my opinion is the best and most-recent homage to this great song, from 1998:





Robbie Williams -  Millennium
In a word, brilliant!!!

"You Only Live Twice" opening with vocals by Nancy Sinatra

As always, watch for the ingenious camera dissolve from the blood on the mattress to the red that forms the red disk that represents the rising sun on the Japanese flag, Hinomaru.
Definitely among the three best opening-credit sequences of any Bond film, along with On Her Majesty's Secret Service and The Spy Who Loved Me.


Freddie Wadling's new collection of James Bond film songs -and other secret agent songs- is available on his new EMI Music Sweden CD titled, "With a License to Kill"

What a night we had! #HollywoodFL based photographer/entrepreneur Esther Chuang with a very elated Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy at his Victory Party, held at Leo Anato's Atelier3/AT3 on Harrison Street & S. 19th Avenue, Hollywood. AT3's great environment and the amazing variety of food prepared by chef Kevin Dreifuss, former owner/chef of ENDS MEAT restaurant, was SUPERB! November 8, 2016
