"Little Animal" by The Raveonettes

Depending on your tastes in music, you might not have heard of The Raveonettes. The Raveonettes are Danish music duo, made up of f Sune Rose Wagner and Sharin Foo. Their style can roughly be defined as Everly Brothers-style harmonies combined with Phil Spector-style production combined with power chords. The Wikipedia entry on The Raveonettes claims their music belongs to such indie rock, noise pop, surf rock, garage rock, and even post-punk revival. For whatever reason the Wikipedia does not include the genre to which I think their music obviously belongs: power pop. Everly Brothers-style harmonies, Phil Spector-style production, power chords, they all add up to power pop.

Anyhow, if you have never heard a Raveonettes song, here is one for you. It is "Little Animal" from their first full length album, " Chain Gang of Love".  I do have to warn you that there is *one strong word* in the song, so if you are offended by harsh language you might not want to listen to it (think A Christmas Story).
