Could a beautiful, entrancing song contain the sound “oh” ninety times and still be completely awesome? Ninety times? Seriously, it could!

Three female vocalists from Sweden perform their stunning song Now Go and the “oh”‘s definitely have it! The smooth, lilting vocals are accompanied by an acoustic guitar, which gives some contrasting punctuation to the tune.
The group Erato sings simple, poetic lyrics often end-capped with “oh”, of varying notes and rhythm, to form a catchy, stick-in-your-head tune. Vivid lyrics paint a scene in one’s head while listening:

Night is warm, the city roars
traffic, bars and open liquor stores, oh-oh-oh
woken by the stellar sky
and a streak of fainted grey street light, oh-oh-oh

Then an insightful chorus line

what you don’t have
you cannot lose

And closing the number by repeating four times:

you need time now go

The vocals here are really worth a listen. I am including a link to the official Now Go video on YouTube, an interesting interpretation of the song. As well, Now Go is included on the ClunkyShoe playlist on Spotify, which totals almost thirty songs. The Spotify link is on this page.

Either way, take a few moments to indulge yourself in Erato’s oasis of sound. Be sure not to lose it because you don’t have it 🙂 That would be sad. You’ll hear what I mean.

Now Go Lyrics

Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh

Night is warm, the city roars
traffic, bars and open liquor stores, oh-oh-oh
woken by the stellar sky
and a streak of fainted grey street light, oh-oh-oh

(chorus)
what you don’t have, you cannot lose
voices all go on and on
announce the pain of every hidden scar, woah-oh-oh

and we all go on and on reminding you of who you really are, woah-oh-oh
just go, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
(just) go, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh

callous hearts need time alone
packing things that you two use to own, oh-own
tying laces way too slow
made up reasons not to go-oh-oh, oh oh oh
(chorus)

you need time, now go (4x)
