News__ Lykke Li’s Sadness is a Blessing

April 28, 2011 | By

Video for Lykke Li's "Sadness is a Blessing" from her forthcoming album Wounded Rhymes

Move over Lisbeth Salander, Lykke Li is Stellan Skarsgård's new leading lady. In her latest video directed by Tarik Saleh, Lykke Li makes a public spectacle out of her apparently dysfunctional father-daughter relationship with her fellow famous Swede-daddy. Lykke gets wasted on vodka shots and dances around an elegant restaurant in a pretty white dress, until the maitre'd tries to stop her. She just wants to dance dance dance for her papa--oedipal much?

The video is shot beautifully, even if the track falls flat. However--after a quick Google search--we seem to be the only ones who think that (or are willing to say it). Whatever your feelings, we respectfully suggest Gold Panda's remix.
