Pitchfork has put out their list of the top 200 tracks of the 1990s.

Lovefool came in at #66.

To quote from them:

The Cardigans had a career before and after “Lovefool”, but for many they will be forever known for this song’s association with the soundtrack to Baz Luhrman’s wildly tacky update of Romeo and Juliet. It’s a happy accident, then, that “Lovefool” happens to be one of their best. The Cardigans took lounge-pop and paired it with disturbingly sour sentiments– and that was mostly it. It was a chemistry experiment that succeeded about half the time, and on “Lovefool”, everything came together. The song’s tone never settles, dipping and wavering between major and minor keys almost every four bars. Even the sunny explosion of the chorus hits a chilly last note. It’s an ideal musical expression of Nina Persson’s probing, uncertain lyrics, which chart a queasy line between abject pleading and manipulation. –Jayson Greene


Katy Perry says new album will be like The Cardigans

Katy Perry wants the new album to sound like The Cardigans “Lovefool” and Ace of Base “Signs”. So says MTV News.

She then backed off a little bit saying that it was “roller skate music”.

I highly doubt that we’ll be hearing from Katy Perry 16 years from now. Enjoy your 10 minutes of fame.
