Kate Havnevik won't teach you a damn thing.

Sometimes when people make me a mix CD, I won't listen to it for at least a couple of years, on account of being so set in my ways and crotchety. But then I will listen to it and what do you know it turns out I like Kate Havnevik:

It's probably for the best that I didn't listen to her when I received a mix with Havnevik on it in 2006. On the one hand, I would have been totally up-to-date-at-the-time on my Norwegian electronica*, but on the other, dominant hand, her lyrics would very well have forced me to shoot myself. In 2008, I'm able to set my chin on my palms and wistfully wist to no one in particular, "Oh Kate, you've got it all figured out, don't you?"

*Although I remember this clip being on rotation in Rome when I was there in 2005, and also I remember not really liking it and wanting more George Harrison.**

**"I've Got My Mind Set on You" makes me want to play 13 Dead End Drive.
