Swedish popular music adapting to time, stills popular for year. The period after World War II has influenced this music by American jazz, and then by rock-and-roll from the U.S. and the U.K. in the 1950s and 60s, before developing into the dansband music. Since the 1970s, Swedish pop music has come to international prominence with bands singing in English, ranking high on the British, New Zealand, American, and Australian charts and making Sweden one of the world's top exporter of popular music by gross domestic product.

The most common genres are pop music, dance music, indie pop and rock. But the worldwide fame was brought by pop music.

ABBA is the best-known popular music band from Sweden, and the only one that ranks among the best-known in the world, composed of members Agnetha Fältskog, Björn Ulvaeus, Anni-Frid Lyngstad, and Benny Andersson. With ABBA, Sweden entered into a new era, in which Swedish pop music gained international prominence after winning the Eurovision Song Contest 1974. They sold a total of 380 million records around the world, making them the second-most successful group ever, after The Beatles and continue to sell 2 to 3 million records a year worldwide.

Sweden has had a long, beautiful relationship with pop music. In the '70s there was ABBA, in the '80s there was Roxette, and in the '90s there was Ace of Base and The Cardigans. In recent decades, the success has extended to Sweden's surrounding countries. Scandinavia has became a hotbed for forward-thinking music steeped in pop sensibility and experimental tendencies. While electronic, metal, rock, and hip-hop have all thrived in Sweden, Norway, and Denmark, there is still something special about the pop coming out of the region. When it comes to pop music, it seems that Scandinavia can do no wrong.

The query as well as the search engine work either across the artists themselves or by entering the year of the release. The entries don’t appear on a regular basis as I will not question you at what point in time you’re visiting my site...

Since you are still reading this, I assume you got curious and I can carry on. That’s pretty cool because you will see after some browsing you are going to head to auctioning platforms or to local second hand dealers your choice to track down the one or other missing piece in your record collection. For that part of the journey − good luck!

A few additional words in regards to westcoast music and this site: I’m not interested in getting comments concerning if the material placed on this website actually belongs to the Westcoast genre or not! The beauty of music itself, is its diversity. Westcoast is a collection of Pop, AOR, Jazz, Country, Folk, Rock, e.g… at least in my opinion. So please show some tolerance since words can’t characterize styles of music and emotions anyway.
