Swedish Charts Update

Milow sits at the top of this week's Sverige Topplistan having knocked Alexander Rybak's ESC-winner "Fairytale" off the no.1 spot. "Ayo Technology" is still dominating the European singles charts - I wonder if it will ever get a release in the UK? Does anyone know?

ESC runner-up Yohanna is still at no.3 with "Is It True" - this has also been a very popular song, long after the contest.

Other Swedish acts in the top 10: Promoe, whose very catchy "Svennebanan" is probably going to be around for a long long time and will be one of the biggest summer hits over there; and Dead by April's rock hit "Losing You".

Reunion-mania doesn't seem to be restricted to the UK or USA - some Swedish acts are at it too, like Style - they were big in the 1980s and now they're back with "Vill Ha Dej, Igen" the title is a nod to one of their hits but it's actually a new song featuring the distinctive vocals of Christer Sandelin.

Anders Fernette is still in the top 10 with his cover version of "Hungry Eyes" whilst Elin Ruth Sigvardsson has enlisted Lars Eriksson for her top 10 hit single "Love".

Other Swedish acts in the top 20 this week: Darin, Bad Influence and Niclas Wahlgren.

Erik Hassle is still in the top 20 with "Hurtful" which has been going up and down the top 40 chart in recent weeks. His debut album will finally be released in Sweden on 19th August and has already received much acclaim in blog-land.
