The 4 Worst Days Of My Life – SKAM

Hello friends!

In one of my recent posts all about Visualify, I mentioned that I had a very legit reason for being out of action on here for a little under a week. That reason, is SKAM.

Since taking a short hiatus from The Office, I’ve been looking for a TV show to ruin my life, and while I’m due to watch The End Of The F***ing World before Chloe comes for me, I decided to start watching a completely different show. SKAM.

Some of you may be familiar with the online show. It went viral, completely insanely popular around 2015/2016, but I never got into the Norwegian drama until last week. One of my prerequisites when it comes to starting anything, whether it’s a book series or a TV series, is that it has to be finished. I can’t be bothered waiting a whole entire year for a new season to pop up only for it to be absolute shit (looking at you PLL), and since there’s no chance of me spreading out my viewing time but rather binging it, I like knowing that it’s finished and resolved and I won’t have to wait for anything. So when I saw there were only 4 seasons, I wasn’t completely sure if it was done, but after confirming that it was, I dived right it.

Oh boy.

My dudes. This show ruined my life. If you’re down for some lovely Scandinavian boys, gals you just wanna be, literal laugh out loud moments and a bunch of words that you start saying in a Norwegian accent, hit up SKAM.

However, today’s post, is not only about this amazing show, but about the stupid good soundtrack for the show. So many good songs in this show. I luckily found a SKAM playlist some angel had made on Spotify, which has most of the songs, nearly all of the songs, that feature in the four seasons of the show. Season 4, Sana’s season, is definitely my favourite for music. It’s not a lot, but for really short episodes, only about ten episodes per season, there’s a lot of music, and it’s literally all so good!

So below, I’ve compiled my favourites from SKAM. I know. Not all of them are definitely not in English, and not all of them are PG. Definitely some Scandinavian swearing in there, but like…really good music. So yeah! Let me know if you give any of these a listen!

Closer – Lemaitre, Jennie A.
The Hills – The Weeknd
Another Love – Tom Odell
Guys My Age – Hey Violet
Somebody Else – The 1975

Electric Feel (Justice Remix) – MGMT, Justice
Gay Bar – Electric Six

Baby’s On Fire – Die Antwood
Hide and Seek – Imogen Heap
Fy Faen – Hkeem, Temur

God Don’t Leave Me – Highasakite
Fredag – Kjartan Lauritzen
CoCo (Coucheron Remix) – O.T. Genesis, Coucheron

U-RITE – THEY

This list barely touches the playlist that I’ve linked above, so make sure you check it out, so many good songs on there, I promise. Also, maybe watch the show?? I mean it was probably quite unhealthy, but I started the show on a Sunday and finished it on a Wednesday, so it was a good run for me personally. If you do, let me know!

    1. HAHAHAA I know! I knew I had to put something in there to keep you from hunting me down lol – and yes. You definitely have to. If I have to watch TEOTFW then the deal is you have to watch SKAM. Very nice Scandinavian boys and good music so you can’t really lose xx

    1. OMG YES FIONA!! I’m so undecided on the remakes, because I love the original so much but I might just take your word and give the Italian version a try! Omg I’m so glad I’ve found another fan! xx

    1. I haven’t! But I’ve been recommended the Italian version by a couple of people so I might check that one out – I was never completely sold on the idea of the remakes while I was watching the original but so many people have told me I should! xx

  2. I watched all remakes because I finished OG Skam one year ago. My most fave remakes are German and Italian. They are the best, I think you probably should watch them if you miss OG.

    Skam Austin is also good. It’s directed by Julie Andem (the director of OG Skam).

    Okay, just text me if you start to watch any remake, haha!
