Current favorite song

Here, let me share a Swedish song that I've fallen in love with: "Håll om mig nu" ("Hold me now"), by Nanne Grönvall (4.2 MB Mp3). File will be up for about a week. I am terrible at describing music, but it's pop-rock with a fast percussion/synthesizer (?) thing going that I just adore, and listened to loud on repeat a lot while I was driving in the past couple of weeks.

Does anyone know this artist and whether her other songs are similar?

I discovered this through a Princess Tutu vid, which is fabulous but contains series-destroying spoilers and so should only be watched by people who (1) have seen the entire show or (2) know they aren't going to watch the show. (If you're not sure if you fall into the latter category, I have a handy-dandy recommendation post for your perusal.) If you can watch it, though, do, because even my inexperienced eyes & ears can tell that the craft in putting it together is fantastic. [*] Here's a link to high-quality downloads (the "indirect" link takes you to the vidder's home page, which doesn't require registration but may sometimes run out of bandwidth).

[*] I particularly like the set of transitions at 0:54-0:58, the foot-stomp at 1:02, the overlay at 1:23, and the image matched to the drumshot at 2:47, but I could say something about almost every shot.

Oh, and I updated the Princess Tutu icon gallery.
