Can you have a crush on someone based solely on their name? I guess so.
Before I ever saw a picture of Lykke Li, and having just barely gotten to know her music, I was writing this song. It would have been a throwaway if I hadn't played it one night while Syd and I were producing the Jessie Bridges project last Winter. Simply put, it made us smile.

I honestly giggle when I listen back to this tune. Please don't take it too seriously!


BTW- Lykke (I've been told) means happiness. That works for me. Still a fan too!
