Maj Britt Andersen - Vise for gærne jinter

The works of poet, novelist, singer/songwriter and journalist Alf Prøysen (1914-1970) are among the most important Norwegian national treasures. His songs are absolutely timeless. One of his very best is called "Vise for gærne jinter" (Ballad for crazy girls), a song that speaks volumes of summer, in this case strawberries, boys and memories. It's a perfect little song, and Maj Britt Andersen is just the right person to sing it, so much so that she has made it one of her signature numbers. She has recorded it at least twice, and this version is from her 2004 album Dørstokken heme, consisting exclusively of Prøysen's songs.
