tipsy baby.

a couple of nights ago, i heard a house/dance remix of this song. roughly, it was played ten times that night. it was that sort of night with house/dance music (that i think it's an utter and complete waste of sound), but the people present were fun. they all danced and sang and made funny faces. probably the reason of why i misheard the lyrics, just like in the title.

well, here's the original version. dance now.

 and here's another one of her latest clips, directed by the same guy, tarik saleh.
Li Lykke Timotej Zachrisson (born 18 March 1986), better known by her stage name Lykke Li (Swedish pronounciation[ˈlʏ.ˈkɛ ˈliː]), is a Swedish singer-songwriter. Her music often blends elements of pop, indie rock and electronic; various instruments can also be found in her songs, including violins, synthesizers, tambourines, trumpets, saxophones and cellos. Her debut album, Youth Novels, was released in 2008.

Zachrisson was born in Ystad, Skåne; her mother is a photographer, and her father is a musician. The family moved to Stockholm when Zachrisson was a toddler and when she was six moved to a mountaintop in Portugal where they lived for five years. The family also spent time in Lisbon and Morocco, and winters in Nepal and India. She moved to the neighborhood of Bushwick, Brooklyn in New York for three months when she was 19. She returned when she was 21 to record her album.
oh, and captain obvious called, he told me that she's also very, very pretty.

p.s. i still don't like this sort of music (that's why i always keep some jimi hendrix in the car, for example), although i've developed a considerably higher tolerance for it. but i'm intrigued of how she chose to deal with her father issues, considering the clips and the lyrics. the sea's not that deep, it seems.
