"Young And Proud" as written by and Ulf/berggren Ekberg....
We're much too young and life's so big
We don't know yet what the future brings
In its hands for us
What tomorrow brings the future knows

No matter what you say
No matter what you do
We are united
Young and proud

Young and proud
We're marching on the same side of destiny
On the same side of destiny
Anyway anyway you do it wrong

I'm calling out your name
But you never hear me
Anyway anyway you do it wrong
I'm giving you my love

Though it's never for sale
Anyway anyway...

    My InterpretationLove this song. Normally I do not like synthetic beats and techno-music but the Ace of Base are a great exception. I even like the synth-timbale fills in this song. It has some kind indefinable driving earnestness. I think it is straightforward in its message. The youth are full of idealism and energy to stride into the unknown future and bring change to the what the previous generation has wrought. It sounds as if the youth are united - against the adult world,because they accuse someone of "doing it wrong".
    But then there is a switch from "marching together towards destiny and the future" to the singer lamenting that she is "calling out your [the listener's ?] name but you never hear me..." this could be many things; unrequited love, a recruitment call to join a movement, even perhaps the Holy Spirit calling someone's soul toward God and being spurned. Someone is giving - not selling love.
    This song has almost a fascist-youth-movement edge to it...but that is a subliminal reading of the text. The fact that beautiful Nordic youth are singing it accentuates this interpretation.

    Yes, I am reading a lot into what is just a great 90's techno-pop song from some Swedes...that's what I like to do. Ace of Base were a fantastic band as long as Malin Sofia Katarina Berggren was up front!
