Jens Lekman – You Are The Light

This song is from almost ten years ago. I remember listening to it (or rather, the whole album this song is from) a lot in the car with my husband in our first year together. It’s a happy, catchy, and funny song. I think it needs to be in everyone’s feelgood playlist. The chorus will get stuck in your head for a while but there are many things far worse than having “you are the light by which I travel into this and that” play repeatedly in your head forever.

Jens Lekman is a Swedish singer-songwriter. If you haven’t been properly introduced to his music yet, this page has a good selection of his songs that can be downloaded for free. Be sure to check out his cover of J.S. Bach’s “Minuet in G”, also known as “A Lover’s Concerto”. I just really, really love it. So good and happy! Also check out the one titled “Maple Leaf”. It’s another funny one!
