Swinging Saturdays #30 ~ MANDO DIAO spotlight!!!!

Swinging saturdays is a musical meme hosted by Ice Cold Passion, to share our passion for music. The goal is to make a top 5 (or Top 10) for whatever genre or artist you like or get creative and share a theme based music top 5. For example a bookish soundtrack, funny songs, song to listen to on a rainy day top 5.
It's time for another spotlight, this time a Scandinavian band that I tend to forget, but makes freaking awesome music: MANDO DIAO. I first heard there song: "Dance with somebody" on the radio, loved it so much that I downloaded the album "Give Me Fire" which is also one of the best albums I have on my computer.

I love the fast bass and drum lines. The rock n roll sound and pretty much anything I have heard from them sounds great in my ears. Sound like I love this band don't it? I sure do! I only haven't had the chance yet to see them live! I am working on that! Lol checked the website, they are playing the Lowlands festival here, which I will be watching via the livestream probably because I don't have tickets! (They are way to expensive). So hopefully they will play some other concerts this year in the Netherlands as well, so I can go see them! ;D

1. Dance with somebody

Lets start with the song that most people do know. I think I heard this song way to many times, to still love it.

2. Long before Rock and Roll

3. Gloria (with Lana Del Rey!)

This is by far my favourite song of Mando Diao. This version is great, I was really surprised how Lana's voice fit in with this song!

3. No More Tears

4. Blue Lining White Trenchcoat

I love the drums in this song!

5. High Heels

One of the stranger songs.

Buy the albums on Amazon

So that's it for my Top 5!!!What is your Top 5 this week?
