The 2009-50: No. 20 - It's time to tell the world a true angel is gone

"Black Sun Black Moon" - Salem Al Fakir.

Yes, it was inevitable that Salem might start appearing in my chart at some point, so no. 20 is a very good place to start. The final track on "Astronaut", this is a very moving song with very personal lyrics; it was for me a significant point in Salem's development, where his lyrics and music found a new emotional depth which was maybe missing from his earlier (happier) material.

The song was performed live on the "Humorgalan" concert back in May 2008 (video at but significantly has never been performed live since then.
