ABBA and stuff

I always joked that I only knew two things about Sweden before I met Arvid: what the flag looks like and that they invented the Swedish massage.

Now, of course, I know a bit more and am also quite interested in Swedish culture and ways of life. There are many, many wonderful things about Swedes. And given that Sweden is less than 10-million people strong, it produces a lot of talented people (and musicians). Wikipedia reports that “[o]n a per capita basis, Sweden is one of the world’s most successful exporters of popular music.”

And this morning I found this woman, wow!

 

Long live Swedish music.
