Sharlene Chiu’s FASHION + music pick: “Sadness is a Blessing” by Lykke Li

Sharlene Chiu

When it comes to songs, there are few things I love more than a really good sad one. Lykke Li’s “Sadness is a Blessing”, off her latest album “Wounded Rhymes”, is one that I’ve had on repeat and I dare you to watch the video for it and not be moved. Not only is Lykke utterly mesmerizing in it but the video also features an equally powerful performance by Stellan Skarsgård (of Thor, Good Will Hunting and Alexander Skarsgård-spawning fame) that perfectly compliments the stripped down emotion that bleeds through the song. Go on, have a good cry.
