HEJ! The Swedish word for Hi!

Spanish reader José Antonio recommends Swedish band HEJ!, who makes their own VERSIONS of other people's songs. Versions in capital letters, because this is definitely not one of those typical (and absolutely dreadful) cover bands you'll find at your cousin's wedding. Some of the songs are almost unrecognizable and it's probably a matter of personal taste (or maybe even feelings) whether you can accept this or not. I have not problems with this at all and actually find the whole concept quite interesting, though the cover of the classic Depeche Mode track Enjoy The Silence fails miserable. Below the links for a few of the tracks and hopefully it's completely unnecessary to mention who wrote the originals!!
+ With Or Without You
+ Disarm
+ 100%
+ 3 more songs
