The album topped the charts in Sweden, reached top 5 in some countries and No. My effort was to recreate these songs with all respect for the originals. My Colouring Book is my way of showing gratitude towards the songs, the artists and all they have given me. This linking of the tactile experience to the album name is just a small, but very important, aspect of album experience. Archived from on 12 August 2014. It is her fourth album recorded in English and was her first album release for 17 years, and was well received by fans, as well as the general music press, with renditions of songs which she had listened to during her teen years in the 1960s. Her voice is at times soulful, seductive, stylish, heartrending and powerful and her years away from the limelight have made her accent even more apparent adding an exotic touch to her already unique sound.
When You Walk In The Room Orginal 14. Capable, restrained, and soothing comes to mind when I consider all these exceptional performers. My Colouring Book has been recorded by a number of well known artists including , , , and to name a few. You are all deep within my heart and will stay there forever.

Agnetha brings those same qualities to My Colouring Book. Before I start analizing or praising Faltskog's voice, I would also like to gush about the music. There are not that many Pop singers out there who would have been able to pull an album like this off and it's a testament to Faltskog's talents as a vocalist that she manages to outshine vocally many of today's much younger singers. Only Agnetha can get away with singing the cheese fest that is Past Present and Future! It is a perfect song to commence the album with as it sets the tone for the songs that are to come. We are lucky to have her back. Her voice has a wonderful lament and longing to it that is wonderfully sad and charming. Agnetha is one of the greatest female vocalists of our time.
The production is alright but could've been tighter in places. This is just a preview! A respectful homage to the artists who have inspired me and left deep prints in my soul and in my heart. Her solo work is not merely an attempt to rekindle the style and success she had with , but that is also a good thing as I dare say that her vocal capabilities were often wasted in Abba. This is the soundtrack of a time lost, to which I return to, with the mighty forces of music. On first hearing, this seemed a more personal album than anyone might have expected of a singer who had been unfairly labelled a recluse in the years that punctuated her recording schedule.
After more than two decades tied to a relentless schedule driven by the solo work that bookended her run in the colossally successful , she decided to take a break, later admitting that for the next 10 years she refused to sing or even play music. The magic of Agnetha and Frida singing together will never be replaced or duplicated , but Agnetha's soulful soprano is an absolute feast for the ears. I love the drum beat used throughout this rendition and the overall musical accompaniment gives the song a unique soft rock edge. She prefers a tranquil life in a rural suburb south-west of Stockholm, away from the noisy city atmosphere. . This album needs to be heard by all true music lovers and anybody else who requires a break from Britney, Madonna and Beyonce. It has been mastered perfectly within the limitations of the compact disc format.
Lyrics: For those who fancy colouring books, And lots of people do, Here´s a new one for you, A most unusual colouring book, The kind you never see, Crayons ready very well, Begin to colour me These are the eyes that watched him, As he walked away, Colour them grey, This is the heart that thought, He would always be true, Colour it blue These are the arms that held him, And loved him then lost him somehow, Oh. Queen of Hearts still wears the crown. She may be 53 here, but as this picture shows, Agnetha is still as beautiful as ever. Agnetha raises her voice dramatically for the third and fifth verses in this song, to produce some of the most emotional singing I've ever heard. I love the spoken word lyrical delivery that intertwines with piano and string instruments.
Like all the tracks, Agnetha simply does a superb job delivering this golden tune. She performs the song beautifully and has the smoothness in vocal range to truly do the song justice. Love Me with All Your Heart6. This album is a must have for any collection. I Can't Reach Your Heart4.
For those who fancy colouring books And lots of people do Here's a new one for you A most unusual colouring book The kind you never see Crayons ready, very well Begin to colour me These are the eyes That watched him As he walked away Colour them grey This is the heart That thought He would always be true Colour it blue These are the arms that held him And loved him Then lost him somehow Oh, colour them empty now These are the beads I wore until she came between Colour them green This is the room that I sleep in And walk in and weep in and hide in That nobody sees Oh, colour it lonely please This is the man Whose love I depended upon Colour him gone Get the embed code Agnetha Faltskog - My Colouring Book Album Lyrics1. Sonically, this is one of the most beautiful albums in my collection. The End of the World12. The Swedish accent only adds to the charm of the songs and the conviction in her voice saves the songs from being tooo schmaltzy. I especially like her version of The End of the World; the best I heard so far. While the album lacks any original content, Agnetha takes a series of classics and makes them her own. I love listening to this European style quality music.
One doesn't have to go far to figure out why the album turned out so well: this is a collection of songs that had a lot of personal meaning. To my family, my friends, to all listeners around the world and to everyone involved in this project - thank you for inspiring me to do this - I love you. Being an absolute Agnetha fan I was expecting better than what this album offers. Especially when we're dealing with someone as talented as Ms. Listening to brand new music by Agnetha Faltskog just now has been quite rewarding for myself. This song was originally written and recorded by and additionally covered by , , and amongst others.
When she goes abroad she prefers to travel by car. The well-received 13-track collection of covers featured songs that Agnetha loved while growing up and dreaming of musical fame: an eclectic delight of better remembered and more obscure tracks from acts that were largely most successful in the 50s and 60s. I was pleasantly surprised because her voice is as stunning today as it was yesterday. In-fact, the only people that may not like it are those who dislike Abba, the song selection, or those who are very genre specific. You are but a figment of your imagination as you sing at the top of your lungs before a loving audience. When I hear her sing, like she does on this song, I know her talent was wasted with Abba. Similarly, there is a lovely short letter, penned by Agnetha, that details the concept behind the album.
