Mads Langer

Okay, I've said it before and I'll say it again: my Google fu is weak. I've been searching for a couple hours tonight, and I still haven't found what I'm looking for. (Ack! Now that U2 song is stuck in my head! That's okay, as I'll explain in a moment, that won't last long.)

See, I've fallen madly, deliriously, obsessively in love with the music of a Danish singer/songwriter named Mads Langer, who you can see here, singing the song I am most obsessed with at the moment (though I seem to like pretty much all of his stuff I've heard):



Now, the problem I'm having is that this guy has not yet released an album internationally, and Denmark is an awfully far trip just to buy some music. So I've found various sites online through which I might be able to buy his music ... but ... psych! I'm not in the EU! So they don't want my money! And Amazon.co.uk doesn't have his stuff, which would have been a way to get around that.

In this day and age of the massive Internet, I would think buying foreign music wouldn't be an issue, but I am flailing ineffectually.

So my question for you all is this: where might I be able to buy music that is not currently available in the U.S.? I would like to get my hands on as much of this guy's music as I can. Help?

You can buy one of his albums on Amazon, but it doesn't have your favorite song on it, and it looks kind of expensive unless you buy a used one - Attention Please

I can't believe I missed that! Thanks for pointing it out! I've ordered it (a used copy) and now eagerly await its arrival. :)

It's easy to miss because when you do the search there isn't a pic of the album :) I hope it's good!

I'm sure I know someone who would buy it in Euros and take American dollars in exchange. If you're interested, I'll think about who that would be.

I would love that! You would be my hero! I used to be LJ friends with someone in Finland, and she would have been a great person to ask, but we've lost touch since she left for DW, so it would be weird to ask her out of nowhere.

What I really want is this album:
http://cdon.eu/music/mads_langer/mads_langer-7860825
(but I would be willing to pay more for http://cdon.eu/music/mads_langer/mads_langer_(cd%2Bdvd)-4064406 if the first one wasn't available).

Let me know if you think of anyone who'd be willing to help. I'll happily pay extra for their trouble.

Amazon.de and Amazon.fr also work
I've had good luck buying music through the French and German Amazon sites. You have to be able to read a bit of French or German, but if you've shopped on Amazon before, it's not that hard, and Google Translate can help.

Found it for you! Merry Christmas ;)

It's a big download even zipped. 62 MB. If you need me to split it into two or three smaller files let me know and I can and then reupload them for you.

Wow! Where'd you find it? You are my hero! I'm still working on buying the album (I'd like money to go to the artist), but now I can listen while I wait!

I hope you have a great Christmas!

So, did you ever get the CD you ordered from Amazon? Were the songs as good as the one that you originally wanted? Or, did you get the CD that you originally wanted eventually?

I was at Borders the other day and checked to see if they had it on their "make your own CD" center, but it wasn't there. Sorry!

Happy New Year! You're probably the sweetest person ever. :)

I did get my Mads Langer CD (Attention Please) from Amazon, but it's his earlier stuff and I don't like it as much as the songs you found for me (and which another friend is, I think, getting a European friend to buy for me). Still, I do like it.

How are you doing?

Lol. I am okay. Feeling kind of like a need a refresh. 2 weeks with the family makes me feel kind of itchy, so I need some lengthy alone time to recharge my batteries, you know? Unfortunately my sister is going out of town this weekend and I will have to watch the kids from Sunday night to Tuesday night. So no alone time for me!

Ah, well.

How are you? I hope your new year is going good! I feel like I've been seeing a lot more posts from you, so that seems a good sign to me :)

I know someone on my flist who can buy the CD for sure if your other friend doesn't pan out. Just let me know.
