Swedish Love!!! (Now Updated With Even More Tracks!!!)



Sweden makes the best new music (along with Australia and France). Klicktrack is a swedish music website that sells songs itunes style. I looked at all the most popular tracks and found some fucking gems. I will upload these gems for you!!!

Hello Saferide - I Was Definitely Made For These Times
^Really catchy/jingly anthem for the kiddies. Gotta love it. Really catchy with cool multi-tracked vocals at the end.

The Embassy - The State 08'
^Even catchier! Awesome bassline and acoustic strums bounce underneath some swedish dude singing in that amazing swedish way! Complete with "ahhhhhhs" and "ohhh yeaaaa".

Jens Lekman - Sipping On The Sweet Nectar (Bogdan Irküks Love Nectar Mix)
^Aw YeaH! Where has this mix been my whole life? I have no idea who Bodan Irkuks is but he made this sunny day sample anthem into a chilled out late night disco slow explosion. This is a must have and will turn summery night drives into super romantic slow-mo movie scenes!!

Melpo Mene - I Adore You
^Why the fuck do I not live in Sweden...so many tunes.

As an encore I am going to upload the rest of the tracks that I haven't already uploaded from Studio's Yearbook 2.

Studio is from Sweden and they, like everyone else who lives there, make amazing music. These tracks are all remixes, they are super chilled out and really spacey. Great for driving, kissing, and water sports.

Williams - Love On A Real Train (Studio Remix)

Rubies - Room Without A Key (Studio Remix)

Brennan Green - Escape From Chinatown (Studio Remix)

UPDATE!UPDATE!UPDATE!UPDATE!UPDATE!UPDATE!UPDATE!UPDATE!UPDATE!
Wow! I found even more sunny summer gems!!

I Are Droid - Time On Time
^Who said all Swedish music is chilled out and totally happy? This song...well it still manages to be sunny somehow but it has edge and is really good.

Air France - Beach Party
^Break out track from Fake Tats fave Swedes Air France. From their earlier EP. Amazing duh.

Parken - Åt Helvete Med Himlen
^I have no idea what the title of this song means..anyone want to translate? It is a strange one though, but totally amazing. It sounds like Swedish hip hop.

Here is the translation dear friend and mutual lover of splendid pop.

Parken (The Park) - Åt helvete med himlen (To hell with heaven)

On the streets the lights are lit again
But I'm still in my bed
And it feels like there's winter in my heart
And all the gates are closed for me

I just want a piece of this now
For all the stones and the soot that I carry
And you could've looked in my eyes
And you could've asked

To hell with heaven
I got nothing to pay for anymore
Now I just want somewhere to fly
Away from you

To hell with heaven
If you don't let me in
I held steady but I lost the grip
And it was a long way down.

Tried to walk but no-one was walking beside me
Tried to smile but no-one was looking at me
Here you disappear between the houses
and you forget what you came here for

In the streets everything is like it used to be
But there's banks of snow at my door
It feels like winter in my heart
And all the gates are closed for me

To hell with heaven
I got nothing to pay for anymore
Now I just want somewhere to fly
Away from you

To hell with heaven
If you don't let me in
I held steady but I lost the grip
And it was a long way down.

But I'd rather burn
then lie down and see
(I'd rather burn)
Then kneel for you and pray
(I'd rather burn)
I've done it before
and I'm doing it again
Doing it again
I'm doing it again

To hell with heaven
I got nothing to pay for anymore
Now I just want somewhere to fly
Away from you

To hell with heaven
If you don't let me in
I held steady but I lost the grip
And it was a long way down.
