Swedish Songs

I've been searching for good Swedish songs for a while, I've found a lot of Swedish artists, but most of their songs are in English (like ABBA, Robyn or Tove Lo), so I just start searching "svenska sånger" but my only results were children songs or Swedish versions of Disney songs, can someone recommend me some music? Thanks in advance!

Hmm, I've had that problem as well. I've found this site to be really helpful http://radio.garden/live. Click on the link, then go to Stockholm and select Swedish Hit Radio (it's on the third page of channels.) That station usually has some good music in Swedish.

I hope this helps and happy learning :)

Punk- Bakom Spegeln, by Radioaktiva Räker.

Metal- Carolus Rex, by Sabaton. Ignore the English subtitles, I just put this video up because it's awesome. Swedish history, woo.

Jazz / hip-hop / swing fusion: Fel Del Av Gården, by Movits! That's one you might need some Swedish subtitles for. :D

Of course, no list of Swedish music is complete without good old Ebba Grön. More 80s punk, yay!

Give Monica Zetterlund or Cornelis Vreeswijk a chance.

If you like ABBA, they did record a few of their songs in swedish, and even more of them were translated and re-recorded for the swedish language version of the Musical Mama Mia. Here is Agneta Fältskog singing S.O.S. in swedish.

I've found Norlie & KKV on spotify the other day, and all their clips on YT contains lyric so that's a good way to understand them the first time. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4UxMpjjCsI4

Then starting from them I found that in the recommandations (I only put one song per channel, you can find others browsing) :

I know that pain. Swedes like to use english in music. It is quite different in black metal but you won't understand lyrics so... But I managed to find some music sang in swedish:

You can look for Petra Marklund on youtube. She is also known as September. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f4fB9EXpMTI There are a lot of her songs with both Swedish and English lyrics

Adding to those already mentioned: Säkert! (pop), Timbuktu, Familjen, Maskinen, Imperiet (Thåström's band), Den Svenska Björnstammen (their album "Ett fel närmare rätt" is one of my favourites!), Ansiktet, Olle Ljungström, Magnus Uggla, Melissa Horn (beautiful sung poetry), Jonathan Johansson.

You can google for a program Så mycket bättre, it is a kind of a reality/music show where artists do covers of each other's songs. Some of the covers are really really good (Darin did a good job on the show, Magnus Uggla's version of "Jag och min far" is just brilliant...)

I have a Spotify playlist where I put mostly songs in swedish. Most songs are a couple of years old and its the kind of songs that many swedes know and can relate to, at least in my generation.
