The 2010-50 - No.4: But I know I met someone truly special in this world

"All Day Love" - Salem Al Fakir.

Written specially for the wedding of Sweden's Crown Princess Victoria and Daniel Westling, Salem gave his first public performance of the song at a gala concert in Stockholm on the evening prior to the wedding.

The idea of a song being written for a royal wedding would probably, in the wrong hands, have you reaching for the sick bag. But this is Salem Al Fakir, who has the ability to melt the hardest hearts with his music...and what a wedding gift, having Salem perform a song as warm, sweet and joyous as this one! It's a mix of simplicity and complexity, with Linn Segolson's warm and heartfelt lyrics set against the ambitious arrangement of the music written and performed by Salem.

No official video, but here's the brilliant clip of him performing the song at the royal gala concert: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FIXyRnAbmvI

How incredibly weird it hasn't charted! I thought it's gonna be one of the biggest Salem's hits, such a lovely song.

It was very generous of Salem to offer this as a free download after the concert - maybe if he hadn't done this, it would have done as well as the Skifs/Agnes duet.
