Monday Morning Tunes: Robyn

I was 11 years old in 1997, and Robyn’s song “Show Me Love” was one of the biggest songs in the country. It was all over the radio and when me and my best friend at the time would get together, we would put the CD in and dance around her bedroom as the song played on repeat. Those were the days, right?

Robyn didn’t put out a second album until 2005, and by that point most everyone had pretty much forgotten about her. Such is the entertainment industry. Her third album didn’t come out until 2010, and it took me until now, 2014, to just so happen to hear a couple of tracks from it while listening to my new favorite Spotify playlist.

Robyn’s album Body Talk is one of the most diverse offerings of pop music, and exactly what I would expect to hear from the Robyn I remember dancing in my girlfriend’s bedroom to as a tween girl in 1997. I’m getting all nostalgic over here.

Robyn is also a pretty great person on a purely human level. In 1999, she traveled the world for two years as a UNICEF ambassador. UNICEF (United Nations Children’s Fund) works in more than 190 countries and territories to save and improve children’s lives, providing health care and immunizations, clean water and sanitation, nutrition, education, emergency relief, and more.
