Jens Lekman

Another pop-slinging Swede. Actually, Jens is the "King of Pop-Slinging Swedes". His success has helped a lot of other Swedish artists get attention they wouldn't otherwise have gotten. If you remember the vocabulary section of the SATs, the relationship connection would be:

Jens Lekman : 2005 Swedish Pop :: Nirvana : 1992 Seattle Grunge

His song "You Are the Light" is great. One of the finest pop tunes released in the last few years. "Black Cab" is good too but pales in comparison to "You Are the Light". There is also a link below to watch the video for "You Are the Light" featuring Jens in a suit of armor. Armor? Hey, why not?
