Really great songs don't need a lot of explanation.

Scared of Heights is pretty. So pretty. Wistful! The kind of song you play on repeat over and over again.

If you like Jason Mraz or Jack Johnson, then you will love this song.

It's not sung by some surfer from Hawaii, it's actually by a singer from Norway named Espen Lind.

Norway has some great musicians!

Trust Perez. You will love this song.

Enjoy it below and then CLICK HERE to check out some other tunes from Espen Lind!

    36

    Espen Lind also co-wrote beyonce- irreplaceable and chris brown- with you.



  37. 37

    Love espen. He's written alot of songs for other artists aswell. Like Beyonces' "Irreplacable" and Chris Brown's "With you" and Jonas Brothers "underdog". and also songs for jessica simpson and ne-yo.

  38. Fan! says – reply to this


    38

    Love his music and his songwritings. "Irreplaceable" (Beyoncé) is another great song that he wrote.

  39. supers says – reply to this

    so good i love his cover of sail away

  40. ana says – reply to this


    40

    does anyone remember his song "when susanna cries"?????
    it was a hit in europe in 1997 i think…

  41. samuel says – reply to this


    41

    Dude…quit taking cock in the ear and keep to taking it the butt…you have got to be off your rainbow colored rocker if you think that is a great song!



  42. 42

  43. Ine says – reply to this

  44. taylor says – reply to this


    44

    Perez.. I've lost your trust ahha ,
    i hate this song!!

  45. ripkla says – reply to this


    45

    Good god, this is nowhere NEAR as good as you make it out to be Perez. It is a jaunty little tune but "The kind of song you play on repeat over and over again."?

    Hardly

  46. teeni says – reply to this


    46

    he is no Jason Mraz but I did like it, wasnt feeling the tuba in the background though. Still a good song Thanx

  47. Norweg says – reply to this


    47

    Espen Lind has actually written songs for Ne-Yo and Rihanna!

  48. Diana says – reply to this


    48

    I'm not really feeling this song… I used to love 'When Susannah Cries' back in the day though.

  49. UffDa says – reply to this


    49

    If you like Espen Lind Perez, you should check out his band "Gitarkameratene" , (its norwegian and means the guitarbuddies:P)
    Kurt Nilsen is also in this band.

  50. Marian says – reply to this


    50

    nice =) Espen is a good artist :P (even if he weren`t in his eary years) hehe

  51. Anna B says – reply to this


    51

    He looks like the Aussie from Idol. But cuter.

  52. me says – reply to this


    52

    Re: UffDa
    they are called "de nye gitarkameratene" :)

  53. Kyle says – reply to this


    53

    I like his voice - and the song… but could do without the tuba…

  54. Bree i says – reply to this


    54

    I love Jack Johnson and Jason Mraz could probably keep me happy at the gym (if I couldn't reach my iPod to change the song), but honestly this dude sounded NOTHING like either of them. Sad. Great voice…American Idol would eat him up but he's not at all a CD I'd buy tomorrow because of talent…

    Ehh…Perez, I give this guy a 5. I could leave 'em or hate 'em.

  55. spell says – reply to this


    55

    sounds like jason castro and he isings hallelulaja too

  56. Suzy says – reply to this

    PREATTY COOL…

    Espen Lind is a great singer and songwriter, its good you finally have noticed him. He is also a producer that trough his company Espionage works with Stargate. He has worked on songs for Chris Brown, Jessica Simpson and Jordin Sparks to name a few.. A great musician!

  61. Nogett says – reply to this


    61

    By the way perez: Talking about norwegian artists on this site actually gets you into loads of norwegian papers.. its a quiet country you see, not alot happens!

  62. Jenne says – reply to this


    62

    Anybody know how to get the download? iTunes keeps flipping me back over to the US store, and this is on the Norwegian store…

  63. Kelly says – reply to this


    63

    JACK JOHNSON IS WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY BETTER!

  64. MiMi says – reply to this

    sucks, very cheesy , makes me feel like cutting the cheese

  65. snel says – reply to this


    65

    Beautiful voice. Love the chorus. I found the tuba to be a bit distracting though (or whatever it was).

  66. Sizzy says – reply to this


    66

    I loove the song! So different and happy and pure. He is soo hot!! Love his outfit, does anyone know who its by?

  67. Zina says – reply to this


    67

    He has written Irreplaceble for Beyoncé with Ne-Yo and Stargate and the song With You by Chris Brown. I absoutly love the song, its quirky in a good way and sweet.

  68. ks says – reply to this


    68

    I'm from Norway, and I am a little stunned that you listen to Espen Lind… The fact that you even know who the guy is, is a little shock to me frankly…… But he has a great voice though….

  69. X says – reply to this


    69

    Wow, Perez, I'm impressed. I loved Espen'd music since years ago when he had his major hits When Susannah Cries and Lucky For You.
    Lucky For You is one of my favourite songs and videos EVER.
    Kudos for promoting him!

  70. cvs says – reply to this


    70

    So I play this song to hear what Perez is recommending now. He says trust me, you will LOVE this song…

    So here I go pressing the button and turning up the speakers .. and no less than 10 seconds into the song my 9 year old son (guitar hero rocker) starts to tap the table to the beat of the song while doing his homework…

    Boy, Perez, you on top of THIS GENERATION and the next!

  71. Fiffi says – reply to this


    71

    I just bought the song on itunes, but you have to scroll down and change itunes store from USA to Norwegian, and then you´ll be able to purchase it.

    You rock Espen!

  72. Lauren says – reply to this


    72

    Aww Perez! I love this song, listed to it 3 times so far =]. Its so cute, and so is he!!

  73. lene says – reply to this


    73

    Norways is patetich. Writing about Perez & how he writes about Norway & their artists..and SO PROUD over it. I mean, WTF?!?! He's a freaking BLOGGER! Not a A-list celeb. I mean, really?

    Norway sucks: I should know, i'm from there.ugh.

  74. €spa says – reply to this


    74

    Mario wants to "make out" with this singer. That's why. Poor Mario, can't get a hot guy because he is a fat screaming queen, so he makes up stories and keeps on dreaming.

    Bashing hot gay couples because you can't have neither of them, is never a good idea you fat idiot!

  75. erin says – reply to this


    75

    It's pretty good. Can't take it too seriously because of the TUBA…sounds like a bunch of farts.

    You need to check out Matt Nathanson…he's HOTTTT and funny and EXCELLENT! I recommend "come on get higher"

  76. X says – reply to this


    76

    P.S.
    But this song is nowhere near as great as the old hits. He should make more like Lucky For You and not this kind of stuff.

  77. asdf says – reply to this


    77

    I suggest you listen to Alejandro Fuentes. He's latino and norweigian.

  78. Rob says – reply to this


    78

    Perez you have a terrible taste in music. This song f*cking sucks donkey balls.

  79. Heathe says – reply to this


    79

    I haven't listened to it yet, but my son's name is Espen, so it can't be that bad!!

    Ah Perezilto, you keep forgetting MORTEN HARKET, the norwegian god and super, extra yummy!!

    Great Voice and not bad on the eyes either.

  82. dronni says – reply to this


    82

    You should also listen to a song he made under the artist name "Sway" many years ago. The song is called "Baby, you're so cool" and it's soooo cool. You'll love it.

    Very Rufus waiwright with a mix of Jason Mraz. cool.

  86. mog says – reply to this


    86

    there no accounting for taste. the wonderful variety of music in the world makes "good" music in all genres.

    you're right perez, those of us who enjoy listening to Jack Johnson are indeed more likely to enjoy this sweet-happy music with pop-ballad style lyrics.

    keep 'em coming!

    I LOVE this song!!! It's beautiful! For the negative people on here: I bet you listen to the same type of music over and over again! I've found lots of new awesome groups/singers on here. Perez definitely has an ear for good music!
