There have been many songs written about Sweden and Swedish towns. In this series, I will share a few with you.
The Northern Irish band, The Divine Comedy, headed by the singer Neil Hannon, released in 1998 the song ‘Sweden’. This bizarre song is about how the singer would like to retire to Sweden when his work is done.
The song includes lyrics such as ‘I am gonna live in Sweden. Please don’t ask me why. For if I were to give a reason. It would be a lie.’
