Swedes Behaving Badly

These guys slay me.

From Letterman circa '02, here's a clip of snazzily dressed Scandinavian power popsters The Soundtrack of Our Lives doing the infernally catchy "Sister Surround."



It's from their (Grammy nominated, as Dave mentions) album "Behind the Music." If you haven't heard it, all you need to know is that basically these guys sound like the Beatles, the Stones, the Who, the Kinks, the Beach Boys, ABBA, the Move, Elvis Costello, Cheap Trick and just about everybody else of that ilk from the 60s through the 80s.

So what are you waiting for? An engraved invitation to go order it at Amazon?

Speaking of Swedes, have you heard any Hives tunes?

They're rather good.

Two things:

The lead singer looks like Brian Wilson during his fat bearded period when Aykroyd and Belushi made him go durfing. I remember when this was on, I went out and bought it th enext day.

Second, the Hives also appeared on Letterman when I got to be in the audience, doing Idiot Walk. They blew the roof off and Letterman loved them.
