Rock - The Cardigans - My Favourite Game


In this song, written by Cardigans Nina Persson and Peter Svensson, a woman is distraught over the end of her relationship. Her "favourite game" is love, and she is losing.

The group recorded this album in producer Tore Johansson's "Country Hell" studio outside of Malmo, Sweden. Johansson opted to use a Digidesign Pro Tools 24 system to record the album which he hoped would help achieve a "heavier, tighter sound" - but it nearly backfired. He explained :

"I wasn't used to working with computers, and one morning, halfway through the recording, I couldn't find the music. Finally I found it hidden on a hard disk, but it was a couple of scary hours!"

The music video was directed by Jonas Åkerlund (Madonna's "Ray of Light," U2's "Beautiful Day," Lady Gaga's "Paparazzi"). It was filmed over a three-day shoot in the Mojave Desert near Barstow, California. We see Cardigans vocalist Nina Persson drive a 1974 Cadillac Eldorado convertible in the clip. She said:

"It was amazing – the weather was really hot and the car was super-hot. I did try to drive it a couple of metres but that shoot was surrounded by crazy security and insurance matters, so mostly the car is sitting on a truck and I am pretend driving. When you see the whole car it's a stunt woman driving it."

Lyrics

I don't know what you're looking for

You haven't found it baby, that's for sure

You rip me up, you spread me all around

In the dust of the deed of time


And this is not a case of lust, you see

It's not a matter of you versus me

It's fine the way you want me on your own

But in the end it's always me alone


And I'm losing my favourite game

You're losing your mind again

I'm losing my baby, losing my favourite game


I only know what I've been working for

Another you so I could love you more

I really thought that I could take you there

But my experiment is not getting us anywhere


I had a vision I could turn you right

A stupid mission and a lethal fight

I should've seen it when my hope was new

My heart is black and my body's blue


And I'm losing my favourite game

You're losing your mind again

I'm losing my favourite game

You're losing your mind again

I'm losing my baby, losing my favourite game


I'm losing my favourite game (losing my favourite game)

You're losing your mind again (I tried)

I tried but you're still the same (I tried)

I'm losing my baby

You're losing a saviour and a saint
