Swedish charts show Tracks celebrates 25 years on the air

Written by roxeteer on September 14, 2009 to and .

The charts show Tracks has been broadcast on Swedish Radio P3 weekly for 25 years. Kaj Kindvall has been the host of the show all the way from September 8, 1984. Tracks celebrated this milestone last weekend when the show aired its 999th episode.

For Roxette fans this is interesting because on the Tracks all-time chart, Roxette is at #3 when the listeners' votes are summed up. Per Gessle is at #87 and Gyllene Tider at #96. Marie Fredriksson did not make the Top 100.


congratulations roxette!
....marie isn’t on top 100...very strange

Yeah, hats up to mighty Roxette!

Why strange? She hasn’t had so many singles, Per and GT aren’t that far from #100 either.

Great for Roxette!!!
Sounds a little strange though, I always thought swedes liked GT and Gessle solo better...
too bad for marie, she deserved to be on the top 100 as well
Who’s at #1?

Gyllene Tider disbanded in 1985, so I would think GT’s position on this chart is basically based on Gå & fiska!

The reason why GT is not in a higher position is because basicly all of their singles are released during the summer month (gå & fiska, juni, juli, augusti, Det är över nu..) and the Tracks list iist is not broadcasted during june, july or august. During summer months the list is replaced with “Sommartoppen”, and on that list I’m pretty sure GT is top 10 or something.

Here’s a list with the top songs from the last 20 years on Sommartoppen, both Gessle (Här kommer alla känslorna), Roxette (Dressed for Succes) and Gyllene Tider (Tuffa Tider, Gå & Fiska!, Det är över nu) are on there.

I see, well that explains things
