Teddybears Sthlm ft. Paola (Extended Mix) - Yours To Keep  

I know it says extended mix but don't run away quite yet, it's not actually 73 minutes long. It's time for some pop education. Recently there has been lots of discussion of the Teddybears' US launch, and rightfully so as they are little furry geniuses (not genii, I checked), but the discussion should be negative because the new versions of the songs are utterly rubbish. How they managed to turn brilliant songs into boring ones, even with the addition of Neneh Cherry and Annie, I haven't a clue, but they have and I am here to educate any of you who like those songs as to why you should order their Swedish albums instead. This is the video version of the original Swedish Yours To Keep (the song which now features Neneh and Annie) and my personal favourite of the very many versions - there seems to be a new one produced every week at the moment but it'll take a lot to beat this fabulous electro-pop version that would surely fill any dancefloor. Paola is a solo singer who I believe was married to one of the Teddybears, and sadly she never had much success apart from this - how different it could have been if this song was the one beloved by internet music over-analysers worldwide.
