Weeping Willows is a Swedish indie rock group that started in 1995. The band's first two albums are primarily influenced by the popular music of the late 1950s to early 1960s. With their third album Into the Light, Weeping Willows took a stylistic turn towards a more modern sound with alternative rock leanings. Singer Magnus Carlson has also made albums as a solo artist and is due to duet with fellow Swedish band West End Girls on a cover of the Pet Shop Boys' single "What Have I Done to Deserve This?" in February 2008. The lyrics typically deal with unhappy love, loneliness and heart-ache. In the end of August 2006 Weeping Willows were the 99th most successful band in Sweden since 1985 (just after Elton John) at the list Tracks (statistics maintained by the Swedish Radio). In 2005 they were the at place 80 on the most played bands in the Swedish radio (with a top position of 5 in 2002). Most played songs are "Touch Me" (7th most played song in 2002 in Swedish Radio) and "Stairs" (8th most played song 2004 in Swedish Radio.) The band has collaborated with Oasis member Andy Bell on several occasions.
