Guilty Pleasure

For some people it's Carly Rae Jepsen, Justin Bieber or maybe the boy band classics. But for this girl -when the temperature is spiking, bicycles fill the streets and trees are in full bloom - a little guilty pleasure that ranges somewhere between Meiko and Sara Bareilles and sounds like puppy love, is the sugary sweetness of Lenka.

Featured in your typically happy-go-lucky Old Navy commercials and injected into the drama-filled hospital wards of Grey's Anatomy, the singer-songwriter has made a name for herself as that toothache-inducing pop fairy who will surely can soothe you out of a slump, lift you out of a rut and twirl you around in the middle of a spring day when you need it most.

She doesn't possess a complicated or profound knack for songwriting - with hits like "Shock Me Into Love", "Skipalong" and "You Will Be Mine" - but I keep her pixie voice and easy melodies in my back pocket for those days when anything else wouldn't put the same sort of skip in my step. Today, the day after a week-long wedding extravaganza and long weekend, is one of those days. Happy work week...
