Boten Anna (3:27)

Cover of Welcome to Rainbow

From Welcome to Rainbow and 38 other releases

“Boten Anna” (“Anna, the bot”) is a song by Swedish eurodance musician Basshunter, which appears on his second studio album, LOL <(^^,)>. Due to the song, Basshunter became a noted artist in his native Sweden, as well as Finland, Denmark, Iceland, Norway, Poland and the Netherlands after the release of the single in 2006. The song topped hit charts and, on 3 May 3 2006, was named Norway’s official Russ-song of the year. It was also the most popular song at The Gathering demo party 2006.

The Swedish lyrics of Boten Anna tell the story of a female IRC user mistaken for an IRC bot by the vocalist who later finds out the truth; subsequently, however, he states that she will always remain a bot in his eyes. The song is based on an actual experience of Jonas Erik Altberg (a.k.a. Basshunter), who explained the situation in an interview with the Finnish website His friend said he would create a bot with administrative capabilities to keep order in his channel,; when this happened Jonas saw a new user with administrative capabilities named Anna enter the channel, and naturally thought this was the bot. Months later, he learned that Anna was actually not a bot, but was his friend’s girlfriend; the embarrassment, he says, inspired him to create the song.
