Video: Lykke Li – Sadness is a Blessing

Lykke Li knocks ‘em back in the video for “Sadness is a Blessing,” one of the happy-sad cuts off her tragic sophomore album Wounded Rhymes. Directed by Tarik Saleh, the clip shows the Swedish sprite disrupting the clenched-butt atmosphere of an upscale restaurant, sucking down shots of that Russian stuff and doing her best Stevie Nicks impression by drunkenly dancing in the establishment. She eventually gets the Jersey Shore treatment and is about to be escorted from the spot, but not before her crying Manther steps in for the comfort save.
