#63 – Peter Bjorn and John feat. Victoria Bergsman – “Young Folks” – (2006)

Swedish indie pop band Peter Bjorn and John (no punctuation) released this, their first single, in August of 2006. YouTube was new and MySpace was still kinda-thriving and this made the rounds there rather successfully. In mid-2007 it was picked up on American indie radio stations and, while it didn’t really chart, it still became rather well known. The whistling is really catchy and it’s how most people recognize the song. I’m gonna be honest though: I haven’t heard about Peter Bjorn and John since. But I don’t listen to indie radio, so I wouldn’t really know anyway.
