It's impossible for me to get through a busy work/school phase without some good pick-me-up music. One of the best artists for this: Jens Lekman. When will he come out with a new album and tour again? Until then, some of my favorite of his songs ...
You Are the Light - This one always makes me smile. The first line is so amusing: "Yeah I got busted, so I used my one phone call to dedicate a song to you on the radio."
Postcard to Nina - A great little story of unrequited love.
Maple Leaves - I admit, this song is on most of my mixes.
