I made this playlist. If you have any song/artist suggestions, please leave them below!

I like to listen to music I really like in a language before I practice, because it motivates me a lot (because I want to be able to understand it)... Worked well with Dutch, and is working with Swedish!

Kent has been my favorite to listen to. The verses are more complex but I usually get the choruses after a few tries. There is also a website that gives good translations. And they have made english version of two albums BUT, be warned they changed the lyrics so they would flow in english better. When I was first starting this messed with me quite a bit because I was less confident in my swedish and thought "Wow! I was totally off in my translation!" But really, they just changed the lyrics (some slightly and some... yeah, a lot). A slightly mellower version of them is a band called Paus (which was just a one time collaboration) but I LOVE that album. Good stuff. Kent has something like 15 albums so plenty to choose from for long car trips (my best friend is 3 hours away one way and I visit usually once a month). Gives me time to listen to music I like and see if I've gotten any better at picking up words since my last listen.

Just don't play vill du ligga med mig då haha... It's sad that that's the first full, complex sentence I learned in Swedish... But by some people's standards it'd be pretty useful so I guess it's not that bad. Gotta learn how to say everything! :D

I listen to a lot of Swedish music, but of course 98% of it is in English. :/

PS: Cornelis Wreesvijk sings in both Swedish and Dutch, so while he might not be your cup of tea that's a 2-for-1.

Maybe a bit too fast to hear everything, but this song is great and has a wonderful message. :) Kapten Röd - Ju mer dom spottar: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MbPNwzFNQ7E

I would also like to suggest two songs by Loke Nyberg, Eldsjäl: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jnwF6j5jSsQ and Aldrig mera rädd: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xqcZ9SXCjyw These two should probably be easier to listen in on while still learning swedish, since he doesn't have a strong accent and sings pretty clearly.

And I really want to +1 on Haskus suggestion regarding Den Svenska Björnstammen - Vart jag mig i världen vänder, such a beautiful song! Great when travelling the swedish countryside. :D

I like to listen to "Den Svenska Björnstammen." They are very good, and I like how they split into really complex harmonies.
