Lovefool - The Cardigans

The Swedish band The Cardigans formed in Jönköping in 1992. Heavy metal musicians Peter Svensson and Magnus Sveningsson formed the band together with singer Nina Persson plus Bengt Lagerberg and Lars-Olof Johansson. Their debut album 'Emmerdale' was released in 1994, followed by the second album 'Life' in 1996. Signing to Mercury Records in 1996, their first international release 'First band on the moon' featured the hit 'Lovefool'.

The single peaked at number 2 in the UK singles chart and topped the chart in New Zealand. I found this limited edition white vinyl 7" single while on holiday in London. The band had some further international hits but unfortunately they weren't released on 7" vinyl. What a shame!

My collection: 7"single no. 3262
Found: Record exchange, London, October 20, 2000
Cost: 2 pounds
Tracks: 'Lovefool' / 'Nasty sunny beam'
