Who: Swedish pop trio active since 1999 with
9 albums on their shelves. Most recent one: the
excellent 2020 longplayer Endless Dreams

Single: YOUNG FOLKS
Released: 7 August 2006 – 15 years ago

More than 260 million spins on Spotify

The song was voted second-best
single of 2006 by NME .

It was on the trio’s 3rd album Writer’s Block.

TUTV: Real 24-carat gold hits are the ones you hum
along, whistle along (which they did themselves), and
sing along years after the release. In the Young Folks
case, 15 years.

And we don’t care about the young folk
Talkin’ ’bout the young style
And we don’t care about the old folks
Talkin’ ’bout the old style too
And we don’t care about their own faults
Talkin’ ’bout our own style
All we care ’bout is talking
Talking only me and you
