Song Of The Day – “Unrequited Love” by Lykke Li
It’s a little bit 1950s Doo Wop ballad…a little bit early ’60s girl group…and a whole lot up-to-the-minute 2011 indie pop. Lykke Li hails from Sweden where she was born Li Lykke Timotej Zachrisson in 1986. She released her debut album in 2008 but it wasn’t until this year and the stunning “Wounded Rhymes” album that she had her major breakthrough making many of the year’s top album lists including mine. The album was produced by Bjorn Yttling of Peter, Bjorn and John.
