Another Scandinavian pioneer, and strangely a buddy of Frank Zappa, namely Arne Nordheim:

And now for something completely different, a most delightful, slightly surreal, Swedish childrens song by Michael B. Tretow. It's called "I Ain't Afraid of Raisins"

The lyrics in English, half Google translate, half DJ translate:

I'm not scared of monsters, they do not scare me.
If they try any tricks, they better watch themselves.
I'm not afraid of cones for they never say a thing.
But I'm shy of apple cores and get the hiccups out of gnats.

I'm actually afraid of raisins, it's weird to understand.
I've met many dozen and they are so stupid so.
They are small and they are ugly and they're whining all the time.
Like a crumpled little ball, it is clear that one get scared.

Never trust a raisin, never ever what you do.
And do not try to be friendly, you get nothing back.
Let them keep on whining, they just want to bite you.
They pretend they are nice although they are not kidding me.
They pretend they are nice although they are not kidding me.

Very Happy I was thinking about talking about Tretow (the "fifth member of ABBA") too! He was heavily featured on that radio program I talked about ("Putte Punsch Lyckoshow"). He was involved in this one, though now one knows exactly how Wink

The Alan Parsons Project were pretty trancey for 1978:



Or ambient, even:

The Alan Parsons Project alternated between pop, kind of cheesy stuff and great instrumentals. It may be because I got into them at an early age, that I've always liked bands who go for the eclectic, especially when they mix pop and instrumental/electronic/experimental. Seeing recently that Lloyd Cole was working with Hans-Joachim Roedelius really got my juices flowing!

I really love when a pop group I like throw in intrumental things on their albums. I imagine they think of it as filler stuff, keeping focus on other things, but I often take these songs to my heart.

Like the only sane instrumental They Might Be Giants have ever done:



Or Steve Kilbey's (from the Church) Earthed album, I absolutely love that album:

I first learned about both Robert Wyatt and Ultramarine when hearing "Kingdom":



..and became a huge fan of both in the process. There are two other tracks that are co-written with Wyatt on the United Kingdoms album, but oh how I wish they had done more together.

These are tracks that they didn't collaborate on:
