Friday Special: Swedish retro

Today's song Posted on Fri, May 11, 2007 09:29

Siw Malmqvist knew what she was singing about in 1966 in her song “Slit och släng” (=wear out and throw away). Listen to a sample of it here (scrooll down a bit). I recently got my hands on a bunch of Swedish retro songs. The lyrics are very amusing! Do you have a favourite oldie’s song? Post it below then!

Other songs:
“Gå och göm dig Åke tråk”
“Jag Tycker Inte Om Dig”
“Stick Iväg Jack” (Hit the road Jack)

Have a nice weekend everyone! 🙂
