Lene's "Playing My Game" reaches 15 year milestonedagbl lene vindu3 border

(Editorial by Tef Johs, March 29, 2014)



A week ago, on Saturday, March 22, 2014, there were exactly 15 years since Lene's first album hit retail stores in Norway.


Before the actual album, "Playing My Game", was released on March 22, 1999, the two singles, "Unforgivable Sinner" and "Sitting Down Here", had made Lene famous even outside of Norway. The beautiful song "Maybe I'll Go" was the B-side of the original "Unforgivable Sinner" single, released on October 12, 1998.


However, even so, not many in the early phases - as stated by both Lene herself and producer Hans Olav Grøttheim - understood the power that the songs on this album were to unleash upon the music world. The Norwegian newspaper Dagbladet claims to have the very first article regarding Lene Marlin published already on July 11, 1998, well over a month before US was even aired on radio.
