The Ark - Let Your Body Decide  

Here is a track from a band sometimes hailed as the Swedish Scissor Sisters. The only way to make the Scissor Sisters better would be to make them Swedish, so I had high hopes for The Ark and as you'll soon hear, I was right to do so. Their current single Tell Me This Night Is Over is at no.6 in the Swedish charts right now, but the band made up of Ola Salo (vocals), Jepson (guitar), Sylvester Schlegel (drums), Leari (bass) and Martin Axén (guitar), have actually been together since 1991 releasing records since 96. Let Your Body Decide was their first hit single, released in 2000, doing very well on Swedish radio and reaching no.9 in the charts. It was the follow-up It Takes A Fool To Remain Sane which really propelled the band to stardom, but LYBD is my favourite thanks to it's great lyrics and the squeaky bits before the chorus. It's incredibly catchy too!
