Me and Armini

Album: Me And Armini (2008)

Songfacts®:

  • The Sun October 23, 2008 asked Emiliana Torrini about this song. The kooky Icelandic singer explained: "I think there was a woman that stalked a man called Armini. She died and her spirit went into my whisky and into me. Now she keeps stalking him through this song. Poor man. Don't worry Mister Armini, everything will be OK."
  • This along with the rest album was co-written and produced by Torrini's collaborator Dan Carey. In 2003 the pair wrote Kylie Minogue's UK #1 hit "Slow". Torrini explained to The Sun how their musical partnership works: "We work like a band. He is my musical soul mate, best friend, family. I am his daughter's godmother. He is a genius. He writes melodies on the guitar like no one else. He brings funk into everything he touches. We have too much fun to call this a job."
