Robyn: Versions of Her Great Pop Songs Delivered in an Intimate Setting

I like a good pop song, and Robyn delivers good pop songs. Several months ago, I saw this video of an intimate performance of a different take on her song "Bum Like You". I love the immediacy of the performance and the way that the shift in instrumentation and tempo, combined with Robyn's emotive delivery, really elevated the song.

The songs are part of something that Cherrytree Records puts on called The Cherrytree House. They’ve also been released as an EP that’s available on iTunes. The original versions are on Robyn’s eponymous album, also on iTunes.
