Top 15 Scandinavian hits (according to my daughter)

I wanted to make a list of the best contemporary Scandinavian music but quickly realized that I hadn’t been paying attention. Luckily, I have a daughter who spends quite a few hours every day listening to music and luckily she doesn’t mind teaching her stone age-based mother a thing or two about what I should be listening to.

Here is her list. Check it out and see if you find something you like!

    That looks interesting. I’m going to have fun listening to some new music 🙂

      I must admit that most of it was new to me as well so I had fun listening to it too (while my daughter was breathing down my neck, wondering what I thought of her favorite music 😀 ).

      I hope you enjoy it!

    This is one of my faves with a fan video by a guy who should be a pro. It is about Varangians who were Norse and Finns together, so I guesss it counts as Scandinavian.

    Well I heard about 5 of these scandinavian artists with a pre-teenager son!
    I guess Avicii is known worldwide,his music is always on the radio and Madcon had a brilliant hit song last year.
    Zara Larsson and Lucas Graham are the ones my son is listening to right now!
    Can’t wait to listen to these other artists.

    I enjoyed all the songs, some of them weren’t available in the us but I’m going to search online for them. Thanks for sharing, I love hearing new music from around the world.

    I really like Mads Langer, Lukas Graham and Seynabo Sey. Thank your daughter for me. Would she consider doing this a couple times a year?
