Just a hint: if you add two spaces after each line, you'll get line breaks so the whole post doesn't look like one huge paragraph.

Also, you can add an asterisk (*) to make a bullet point list, which is even easier to read.

All brilliant, but most of their songs are in English, which doesn't really help in learning.

You could add "Mr. Jones Machine" and "Page" in the synth section. Maybe also "Saft", "Vision Talk" and "Machinista" (although most of their songs are in English, only a few in Swedish).

My favourite Swedish song is currently "Det Finns Mycket Som Man Inte Känner Till" as sung by Marie Fredriksson.

Black Ingvars... it is mostly children's music set to heavy metal... but is very catchy... the music is easily recognizable... and some of the songs are similar to English children's songs... I find myself singing the songs most all day...
