Retro Saturday: Melodifestivalen 1979

Onwards to 1979: despite the considerable presence of Tomas Ledin yet again, this time with "Det Ligger i Luften" (video at it wasn't enough to stop Ted Gärdestad's "Satellit" that year. That is still one of my most fondly remembered MF winners, which I still listen to a lot in both its original Swedish and also English versions.

Ted is of course sadly no longer with us: this talented Swedish singer/songwriter killed himself in 1997, aged 41. If you need more info regarding Ted then check out a very informative and respectful entry over at
