  • Taken by Trees is the solo project of Victoria Bergsman, who is probably best known for her vocal contribution to Peter, Bjorn & John's hit single, "Young Folks." In November 2009 she recorded a stripped down cover version of Guns N' Roses' tune "Sweet Child O' Mine," to soundtrack a UK TV commercial for the department store John Lewis.
  • The song was also used in the final scene for the 2010 comedy drama film Life as We Know.
