Du Gråter Så Store Tåra

I know, i know... Ane Brun is not Swedish, she is a "Stockholmare from Norways north-west coast" as said by Skavlan. I can't help myself so i have to tell you that she now also sings beautifully in Norweigan.

Don't miss this video, it's Youtube fresh and right of the national Swedish TV. Below you can compare it with the English version if you like.
