Swedish singer Lykke Li's “Little Bit” gained so much praise because it had just the right elements for a single: Simple acoustic percussion of a clank or bang added to her provocative lyrics fantasizing about a former love. A breathless intensity that commands our attention the moment we hear small bits of a guitar or saxophone. And more importantly, “Little Bit” became so infectious mainly for the fact that it wasn't a typical pop record. Only Lykke Li could get away with rhyming “tainted heart” with “legs apart” and make it sound so intimate.
