The Wannadies - You And Me Song

Perle Dimenticabili tira fuori pezzi deprecabili e assurdi, trovati conservati, per strani motivi, nel mio personale etere.

Vediamo oggi cosa esce fuori... šŸ™‚

The Wannadies - You And Me Song

Sdolcinatissima canzone che uscì insieme all'ugualmente romantico ma ben meno adolescenziale Romeo + Juliet. Fu il loro più grande successo, esclusivamente per il passaggio film+MTV. Spariti.


"You and Me Song" is a song by Swedish band The Wannadies. Originally released as a single in 1994, it became the group's biggest hit. In April 1996, it peaked at number eighteen in the United Kingdom.

Song information

Appearing on the band's third album, Be a Girl, the song was also included on their next album, Bagsy Me, due to the success of the re-released single and the song's appearance on the soundtrack of Baz Luhrmann's film Romeo + Juliet.

For the second UK single release, the song's title acquired an ampersand. The B-side, "Blister in the Sun", is a cover of a song by the Violent Femmes.


The Wannadies were an alternative rock band formed in 1988 in SkellefteĆ„, northern Sweden.

The band's initial line-up featured Pär Wiksten (vocals, guitars), Christina Bergmark (born 1 March 1963) (keyboards, vocals), Stefan Schönfeldt (born 5 June 1965) (guitars) and his younger brother Fredrik Schönfeldt (bass) with Gunnar Karlsson (drums) and Björn Malmquist (violin).

Initial recording sessions for third album, Be a Girl, proved unsuccessful—first choice producer Dagge Lunquist took paternity leave late in 1993 and a second attempt with producer Micke Herrström had to be abandoned after just a week and a half when, first engineer Adam Kviman, then Herrström were taken sick with hearing injuries.

"Love in June", the only song to be completed with Micke Herrström, was released as a single while the band tried again to record Be a Girl, this time with producer Nille Perned. The album was finally finished by autumn 1994 and was released along with second single, "You and Me Song", to critical acclaim in their native country. Shortly afterwards the band came to the attention of Indolent Records in the United Kingdom who signed The Wannadies in the summer of 1995.
