Top Ten Swedish Songs That Topped The Austrian Charts

Sweden is one of Europe's best known music nations. Artists of the country made it big all across the world, and brought us unforgettable hits that will be remembered no matter how much time may pass.

Of course, over the years, Swedish music also became popular in my home country Austria. These songs by Swedish artists managed to climb straight to number one on the Austrian charts.

NOTE: "Swedish" means the nation the song comes from, not necessarily the language.

The Top Ten

1 The Final Countdown - Europe

Music to this song makes me wanna fly! Incredibly good. Also the delivery - both vocals and the instruments. - Metal_Treasure

December 1st to 31st, 1986. - Martin_Canine

2 Wish You Were Here - Rednex

This has potential of becoming one of my all time favorite songs. Of course, I knew this song and album for longer, but since I made my recent list about artists with 4 or more number one hits in Austria, I have gotten very much into the band and their first studio album (the second and final record doesn't quite hold up, but has its moments), and this song is their masterpiece. It rightfully was such a huge hit. - Martin_Canine

July 23rd to September 30th, 1995. - Martin_Canine

3 All that She Wants - Ace of Base

March 28th to May 8th, 1993. - Martin_Canine

4 Joyride - Roxette

This song is my idea of good pop rock. Yes, it's pop but still hard rocking (guitar sound, rhythm, riffs, solo, etc). I needed to say that because many of the current bands that are labeled pop rock have little-to-no-rock in them. - Metal_Treasure

March 31st to June 8th, 1991. - Martin_Canine

April 15th to May 14th, 1978. - Martin_Canine
