Swedish Pop: Magdalena’s List

 

The other day I attended a gasque (a traditional formal dinner typical of Nation’s life in Uppsala and Lund) at Gothemburg’s Nation and sat next to Magdalena, a really cool Swede who is very passionate about music and at the dinner promised me she would send me a list of classics of Swedish Pop that everyone knows and loves in Sweden.
A few days later she sent me the list, so here it is:

Bert och Heman Hunters – Älskade ängel

 Roger Pontare – Vindarna viskar mitt namn

Mauro Scocco – Sarah

Basshunter – Boten Anna

This song has an English version too which hit the UK charts roughly 10 years ago (the title is’Now You’re Gone’). Who knew he was actually from Halmstad (south-west coast of Sweden).

Glenmark Eriksson Strömstedt – När vi gräver guld i USA

Freestyle – Vill ha dig

Sarek – Genom eld och vatten

Veronica Maggio – Hela huset (ft. Håkan Hellström)

Carola – Främling

Ebba Grön – Staten & Kapitalet

 Broder Daniel – Shoreline

Cornelis Vreeswijk – Somliga går med trasiga skor

 Ted Gärdestad – För kärlekens skull

Lena Philipsson – Det gör ont

E-Type – True Believer

Roxette – Listen to your heart

 Gyllene Tider – Sommartider

Magnus Uggla – Efterfest

Magnus Uggla – Kung för en dag

The Cardigans – My favourite game

Icona Pop – I love it

John Ossi – Whats the point

 Ace of base – All that she wants

Another example of a world famous song that comes from Sweden (although few people know that!).
