"Live Tomorrow" is the third single by Swedish singer-songwriter Laleh from her self-titled debut album, released on August 31, 2005.[1] [2] She personally wrote and produced the song, which was nominated to "Song of the Year" at the "P3 Guld Awards" in 2005.[3]

The song became a success when it came in first on the Swedish radio station SR P3's radio show "Tracks" (Trackslistan) where listeners vote for their favourite songs in a top 20 list. The first time the song came up on Tracks was on August 27, 2005. It was then on fifteenth place.[4] The song kept on climbing up onto the list and was only a week later, on sixth place.[5] On October 1, "Live Tomorrow" came in first place on "Tracks" and beat James Blunt's song "You're Beautiful" which had been in first place for three weeks.[6] "Live Tomorrow" was in first place on "Tracks" for six weeks until "Hung Up" with Madonna took the place on November 12. The original track and lyrics were written by herself while the production was carried out by Iron-Moose records and later handed off to Warner Music Sweden.[7]

The song was used in the Swedish 2007 film Solstorm.

Chart performance[edit]

In Sweden, "Live Tomorrow" entered the Swedish Singles Chart at fifty-two on September 8, 2005. Two weeks later, on September 22, it climbed to thirty-one. The song peaked at number twenty on October 13. It was kept on the list for twenty-two weeks and ended at fifty-five.[8]

In Denmark, "Live Tomorrow" debuted at fourteen on the Danish Singles Chart on February 24, 2006. The song reached its peak position of number eleven, the last week in charts, on April 28, 2006.[9]

Music video[edit]

The music video for "Live Tomorrow" was directed by Martin Fodor-Nilsson, who has directed several other music videos for Laleh including "Invisible (My Song)" and "Storebror". It was filmed on the island of Fårö, Gotland on August 2004 and features Laleh singing on the deserted island.[10]

Live performances[edit]

Laleh performed "Live Tomorrow" on several television shows in Sweden including Trackslistan, Faddergalan and Grammisgalan. She performed the song on Trackslistan in October 2005, in connection with the first place of the song. Two months later, in December 2005, she performed the song on Faddergalan live from Ghana in order to support poor African children. She also performed her song "Salvation" which is also from her debut album.[11] In February 2006, she performed "Live Tomorrow" on Grammisgalan where she also performed her single "Forgive But Not Forget" which had been released that month.
