Lykke Li: Sadness is a Blessing Music Video

      Something new for y'all here. This is Lykke Li's music video for her song 'Sadness is a Blessing', which caught my eye when I first saw it. The song is he seventh track from her latest album 'Wounded Rhymes', and is shot really well. It stars Lykke herself, as well as renowned Swedish actor Stellan Skarsgård, who has stared in many films as a hardened character... and as Bill in the film version of 'Mamma Mia'.
     The video is brilliant and focuses on Lykke as a defiant drinker at a restaurant. None of the characters speak, apart from Lykke's singing, which adds to the magic. As Lykke drinks more and more, she eventually gets up, and starts singing and dancing. I won't spoil the ending, but it a remarkable music video. The song isn't bad either, and the video suits the mood of it perfectly. Check it out, though you might want to follow this link to Youtube as the video below is a tad small.
