Vargy in the studio during the recording of his big hit!
"Aoo - what is Vargy saying to you?". You haven’t missed Vargy's big hit, have you? It's a catchy song that is hummed by both parents and children. Stöten Magasin got to hang out with Vargy during a day in the studio!
It's a sunny day in late autumn. We meet Vargy in Streamline Studios in Västerås. Vargy shakes paws and show us around. He offers coffee and presents Streamline Studios Erik Halvarsson and Michael Clauss, who are the authors of Vargy's current world hit "What does Vargy say?"
"I pictured Vargy standing up there on the mountain, howling to the children. I was also thinking about winter, skiing and joy", tells the producer and songwriter Erik Halvarsson, who wrote the text. "It's great to work with Vargy. We thought the song should spread joy, be repetitive, easy to remember, and super catchy.
"When we both feel we begin to find the right sound in the song creation, we both go: Darn, this is good!", says Michael Clauss. "One must believe in the concept of the song to one hundred percent. If you at all hesitate that the song is really great, it will never turn out great at the end", Michael Clauss concludes.
Sounding good, Vargy!
When Stöten Magasin arrives, Vargy is sitting at the grand piano and practicing for the upcoming singing performance: "Who trots around the mountain all day?" Who sleeps tight at night under a tree? Who is it that has fur so thick and warm? Always so nice and happy, tell me who can it be? "Wow, it’s really swinging! The whole text can be found here, go ahead and start practicing!
"Aoo, that’s the one!" Vargy yells happily and high fives with Erik Halvarsson, who has written the lyrics to the song.
