Sadness Is A Blessing

Besides liking old school prog rock and heavy metal, I’ve always had a fondness for musicians from Sweden going back to the days of abba. This video is by Lykke Li and what I really like about her is the diversity – she’s got pop like abba, techno like bjork – and plenty of soul as this video points out. The lyrics could be seen as an addendum to the previous post on acceptance, while the images suggest something more – is this a daughter out of control with her father or a doomed taboo relationship?

Lykke Li Factoid – she pronounces her name like Vicky Lee except with an L instead of a V :
