Lisa Loeb Plays IKEA

IKEA furniture never lasts very long, so it’s vaguely (emphasis on vaguely) ironic that Lisa Loeb, whose “Stay (I Missed You)” and bewitching glasses have lasted longer than we would’ve ever imagined, ended up playing a show in the store. Not exactly a Take-Away, it’s part of Mark Malkoff’s “Mark Lives In IKEA” series of videos (he looks pretty good for a diet of meatballs and lingonberry juice). This on top of her recent blogging … Can you smell a resurgence? Take it away Paramus.

Two strange things here:

  1. Mark’s wife’s favorite singer of all time is Lisa Loeb and
  2. That woman is Mark’s wife. She looks more like an IKEA spokes model, all Swedish-y and such.

Why not have the Knife play? They’ve already proven they can tackle unconventional venues. Whatever, Lisa sounds great, and she got to go home with a well-stuffed gift bag. You can see more of Mark’s in-store hijinx at his site. Oh one thing that never gets answered: How do you say “Lisa Loeb In A Thong” in Swedish?
