Biography
Vent på mig is taken from the movie "En Kort en lang" soundtrack (A Long, a short), which is about the eternal romantic triangle, but this time with a homosexual twist. The film's director Hella Joof is the female third of the group "Det brune punktum", with whom she wrote the song.
Peter Frödin primarily works as an actor and is known from a number of movies. He became famous as part of the comedy group "Lex og klatten". Not only were their shows highly successful, their CDs also received a lot of airplay. Half of the group took part in the OGAE Song Contest 1998 with the song Brug din telefon som telefon. One of the members left the group to set up "Det brune punktum".
Jimmy Jørgensen is the singer of the rock band "Hotel Hunger" which has been together for as long as 15 years. This year, he has shown new sides of his talent, receiving high critical acclaim for his interpretation of Judas in the musical "Jesus Christ Superstar". It is the first time that Jimmy Jørgensen and Peter Frödin have performed together.
The movie "En Kort en lang" as well as its soundtrack both enjoyed huge commercial success in Denmark.

Original lyrics Vent på mig
 
Når alting sejler
Så er det flot at ha' et sejl
Når alting fejler
Så er det godt at ha' en fejl
Når alting stejler
Så er det bedst at ha' en hest
Kom lad os sammen ride
Til livets store fest
 
Vi ska' på kanotur
Besøge et bryggeri
Og vi ska' ha' fael'søkonomi
Hva' med en søndagsfilm?
"Mit smukke vaskeri"
For den er fuld af poesi
Jeg vil gøre alt for dig
Som du kan li'
 
Vent på mig
Bli' hos mig
Og hvis vi snubler hen ad vejen
Så griber vi hinanden igen
Vent på mig
Tro på mig
Og så elsker vi hinanden
Og hvad end der så end sker

 
Når verden smelter
Så er det godt at ha' en kop
Når sjaelen laenges
Er det i top at ha' en krop
Vi ska' på herretur
Elske i det fri - eller i Tivoli
Jeg vil gøre alt for dig
Som du kan li'
 
Vent på mig
Bli' hos mig
Og hvis vi snubler hen ad vejen
Så griber vi hinanden igen
Vent på mig
Tro på mig
Og så elsker vi hinanden
Og hvad end der så end sker...
English lyrics Wait for me
 
When everything is adrift
It's good to have a ship
When everything fails you
It's good to fail
When everything is rearing
It's the best to have a horse
Come ride with me
To the big celebration of life
 
We are going canoeing
Visiting a brewery
And we will have shared economies
What about a sunday-movie?
"My beautiful laundrette"
'Cause it's full of poetry
I will do anything for you
The way you like it
 
Wait for me
Stay with me
And if we stumble along the way
We'll catch each other in the fall
Wait for me
Believe in me
Then we'll love each other
Whatever the future might bring

 
When the world is melting
It's good to have a cup
When the soul is longing
It's good to have a body
We are going for a big night out
Making loving in the open - or what about Tivoli
I will do anything for you
The way you like it
 
Wait for me
Stay with me
And if we stumble along the way
We'll catch each other in the fall
Wait for me
Believe in me
Then we'll love each other
Whatever the future might bring...
