Arne Bendiksen

On our recent tour in UK and US we used norwegian pop guru Arne Bendiksen‘s Eurovision hit “Spiral” from 1964 to play as a closure after our set, and
I also recommended it in my last top 5 on our myspace. Its such a happy tune, and it saddened us greatly to learn that the composer passed away
shortly after our return to Norway. Arne Bendiksen was an important figure for developing the music industry in Norway in the 60s + 70s as well as having the gift it is to know catchiness when he heard it. We give our respect to him and his achievements, and hope that his music will live on.

Here’s an article on Arne Bendiksen by Bjørn Hammershaug, MIC (in norwegian)
