A perfectly charming chap. Here is all the stuff I like.Ask me anything
Jens Lekman :: Kanske Är Jag Kär i Dig
the wonderful sample at the end is courtesy of music genius Jorge Ben.
I think this may be my favourite song. The first verse is kinda morbid but aimless but in two lines he shifts the mood and focus completely. “Of course this is nothing to do with anything// I just get so nervous when I’m talking to you.” The second person in pop can be a little cliched because Justin Timberlake, The Beatles et al don’t even pretend to be talking directly to you, whereas Mr. Lekman takes the voice of an awkward coffee date trying desperately for something to say.
Coupled with stunning sampling, the gentlest guitar solo to ever be this affecting and incredible arrangement, this is a standout track in an album of standouts.(171 plays)
