Three More Songs You Didn’t Know Were Swedish (Round 3)March 22, 2018
Last year, we shared a couple batches of “Three Songs You Didn’t Know Were Swedish” (here and here). We figured it was time to share three more songs to add to your playlist.
Show Me Love
Robyn was just 17 when “Show Me Love” was released in 1997. It was the second song to crack Billboard’s Top 10 off her debut album “Robin Is Here” – the other was “Do You Know (What It Takes).” Robyn, who’s still making music today and contributed the song “Honey” to soundtrack of HBO’s “Girls” in 2017, co-wrote the song with Max Martin; it became one of Martin’s early success stories in the United States.
Now You’re Gone
Dance musician/DJ Basshunter had a couple of big hits, including “Now You’re Gone” and “All I Ever Wanted.” This song didn’t appear on the Billboard Hot 100, but it hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Dance Airplay and No. 1 in the UK.
Big Big World
Emilia Rydberg’s innocent “Big Big World” topped the charts in Austria, Australia, Belgium, The Netherlands, Germany, Norway, Switzerland and Sweden. It hit No. 5 in the UK, and No. 26 on the Billboard Pop chart (92 on the Hot 100).
