Listening to Swedish twee

I really love Last.fm. I listen to it at work, and it has introduced me to a lot of new music. If you haven't used it before, you can start by checking out my profile.

Lately, Last.fm has me listening to a lot of Swedish twee. It knows me pretty well. Anyway, I thought I'd share a couple of my favorite songs (both of which just happen to have cute videos).

First, You Can't Hurry Love by The Concretes:



Second, Black Cab by Jens Lekman:

I love The Concretes and that song is one of my favourites, but I had never seen the video...until now! It's so cute. I love the blushing cheeks. Thanks for sharing, Erin.

Brie, I knew you'd be all over at least one of these groups, but I'm glad I was able to share something new. Michael thinks "You can't hurry love" should be our song.

as soon as i read the words 'swedish twee' my heart began to flutter with excitement.

those were both new to me and wonderful!

thanks friend!

It's such a great song!

I like Jens, too, but I haven't listened to him much. We have some CDs at our house that I should probably dig out and put on the stereo while I putter around the house.

Brie, I think Jens is perfect for puttering, and I'm certain that you'll love him.

Do I have to pay the monthly fee to listen to your profile? Ugh - I am ready now - is it worth it!?

Erin said...

No, you don't have to pay a fee to listen to my library. I think you have to pay to listen to my loved tracks, though. I don't pay, but I remember I did give last.fm some money a few years ago.
