Learn the Swedish language by listening to music
Learning a language it is beneficial to listen to and sing along to music in that language. You learn new words but more importantly you get a sense of the rhythm and intonation of the language, as well as learning pronunciation.
Below is a link to a popular summer song in Swedish, by Tomas Ledin. It is called “Sommaren är kort” – summer is short.
To learn the Swedish language by listening to music you need to pick up the words in the song. I have made a Sommaren är kort – glosor translating Swedish into English.

For anyone who can get Spotify, there is a fantastic learning resource in Tunigo, the lyrics app.
* Open Spotify
* Click on “App Finder”
* Find and add “Tunigo” (nothing is actually installed). It’s now added to your Apps list.
* Play any track with Swedish lyrics – something reasonably popular, else lyrics might not yet have been added yet
* Click back on Tunigo in your Apps list
Now you’ll see the lyrics coming up line by line.
Here’s a Spotify playlist of Swedish songs. Follow it:

Excellent! I think the app is TuneWiki though. I had it added already but had never before tried it. Now I have and it worked on the first song! It left out the Swedish letters Å Ä Ö though, but not in the second tune. Really useful!
