The KNife won Grammys and used this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h85aUeGORyQ as their acceptance speech.
K:Hey and thankyou, it’s so much fun to win a prize – unfortunately we can’t be there this evening because we’re on tour
O:To be on tour is very exciting. We’ve been on tour now on and off for a year – of course we’re home in between.
We’ve met lots of people who like what we do and of course that’s very rewarding along with experiencing other cultures. There’s lots of airports and hotel rooms and late nights…. I especially remember when we were in Hamburg it rained a lot.
A friend said to me that I’m pathetic but I don’t feel pathetic, I just feel a little bit weak .On behalf of the ordinary (?) I’d like to thank some people… (‘miao’),,,
I’d like to thank Kerstin, Aaron, Anton, Natasha, Johan and everybody who likes me….
(*Papa?*) ..yeah, I’d lije to thank Papa too and everyone I’ve already thanked in real life.
Before I present myself I’d like to say how overwhelmingly happy I am to get this prize.
Erik is my name and I’m the caretaker director of the group the Knife.
Thanks, big thanks and even bigger thanks to all of you.
The Knife has been an adventure for both me, Olof and Karin. Thought of The Knife are running around my head –desperate tones and yet simple melodies right on target that strike directly at the heart. Thanks
Today when I was sat on the bus and I saw a child that suddenly started to laugh with a joyful rush. Imagine if you could feel like that again I thought … and right now I’m actually doing that. Maybe it’s like an old wise man said – rarely does a bird land on the same branch twice.
I want to thank with all of my heart and hope that you feel the joy that I feel – this running bubbling joy rush over this prize and I hope that you understand that this is something that hasn’t even quite sunk into my heart yet. Thankyou
who's gonna thank me! that was difficult
they won 6 Swedish Grammys - which I believe equals the record held by Abba
they didn't have the swedish grammys when abba was around
