"Get Some" is a song by Swedish recording artist Lykke Li from her second studio album, Wounded Rhymes. Produced by Björn Yttling of Peter Bjorn and John, it was released in Sweden on 22 October 2010 as the album's lead single.

Writing and inspiration[edit]

During an interview for The Guardian on 13 December 2010, Li said of the song:

"A lot of people think it's about sex. [...] But it's about power. I was reading the Murakami book The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle, where she goes into this guy's mind by making him fantasize about her, so it's kind of like powerplay. As soon as a woman does anything, they seem to hit a nerve and it's back to sex. At least men seem to think that."[1]

On 3 March 2011, Li performed "Get Some" on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.[2] On March 10, she performed the song on Conan[3] and on Last Call with Carson Daly on March 15.[4]
