unusual musical

to this, Carl-Michael Eide had been playing in Ulver and Vicotnik in his own project Manes (Manes (band)). They were signed to the British (UK) label Misanthropy Records. The band was unique by their mixture of many unusual musical elements for Metal, such as atonality and dissonance, a very prominent bass (bass guitar) sound as well as Eide's crooning and Vicotnik's characteristic shrieks. The following year, a semi-final was introduced. All eight songs were performed on ''Top of the Pops'' on 1 March, and the public voted to decide the four finalists. The results were announced the following day, but there was no information given on who finished where. On 8 March the final was held, with Gina G winning very easily with her dance number ''Ooh Aah... Just A Little Bit''. The song became an instant hit in the charts, reaching number 1, but not in the Eurovision Contest itself. In Oslo, Gina could only manage 8th place, but was perhaps consoled by her Europe-wide hit with the song, which also became one of the few Eurovision songs (and one of the relatively few dance songs) to be a major hit in the United States. He was born in Oslo as a son of Gustav Severin Henriksen. He was hired in Borregaard Industrier (Borregaard) in 1947, and advanced to director general from 1960 to 1978.

name Oslo coatofarms Oslo komm.svg county Oslo idnumber 0301 '''Oslo''' ( ) is the capital and the most populous city (List of towns and cities in Norway) in Norway. Oslo constitutes both a county (Counties of Norway) and a municipality (Municipalities of Norway).

Founded around 1000 AD, and established a "kaupstad" or trading place in 1048 by King Harald III (Harald III of Norway), the city was elevated to a bishopric (diocese of Oslo) in 1070 and a capital under Haakon V (Haakon V of Norway) around 1300. Personal unions with Denmark from 1397 to 1523 (Kalmar Union) and again from 1536 to 1814 (Denmark–Norway) and with Sweden from 1814 to 1905 (Union between Sweden and Norway) reduced its influence. After being destroyed by a fire in 1624, the city was moved closer to Akershus Castle during the reign of King Christian IV (Christian IV of Norway) and renamed '''Christiania''' in his honour. It was established as a municipality (List of municipalities of Norway) (''formannskapsdistrikt'') on 1 January 1838. Following a spelling reform, it was known as '''Kristiania''' from 1877 to 1925, when its original Norwegian name was restored.

Oslo is the economic (Economy of Norway) and governmental (Politics of Norway) centre of Norway. The city is also a hub of Norwegian trade, banking, industry and shipping. It is an important centre for maritime industries and maritime trade in Europe. The city is home to many companies within the maritime sector, some of which are among the world's largest shipping companies, shipbrokers and maritime insurance brokers. Oslo is a pilot city of the Council of Europe and the European Commission intercultural cities programme.

Oslo is considered a global city and ranked "Beta World City" in studies performed by the Globalization and World Cities Study Group and Network in 2008.

As of January 2014 the city of Oslo has a population of 634,000.
