Sweden

On this page are all the Swedish sales chart positions for Abba, Agnetha Fältskog, Frida and related items. The chart is combined singles and albums up to August 1975. From then, no charts were produced until 14 November 1975, when the charts were separated into Top 20 singles (Top 40 from 1991) and Top 40 albums. Recent Swedish charts are the Top 60 singles and albums from the Sverige Topplistan web site.

Tio i topp ("The Top Ten") A weekly voting-based Swedish radio chart, broadcast between October 14, 1961 and June 29, 1974. Each broadcast was preceded by a preselection for the chart, entitled Trettio i test ("Thirty Tested Songs"), where five challengers were selected for the final voting. Sometimes, one and the same song would be entered in the preselection several times. From the book "Tio i Topp!" (the Top Ten) by Eric Hallberg & Ulf Henningsson and available from here.

Svensktoppen charts began in 1962 and Agnetha and Frida feature heavily on the lists. These are the main charts that people quote when referring to Agnetha and Frida's pre-solo number 1 singles.

Thanks to Fredrik Augustsson, Claes Davidsson, Michael Lundgren, Grant Whittingham, Harry Ehler, Gary Collins, Mattias Olsson, & Robin Andersson. Special thanks to Carl Magnus Palm for additional clarification and assistance.

Key to Abbreviations:

Date: This is the date the single or album first appeared in the chart.
Title: The title of the single or album. With singles, if there are two titles listed on one line, that single was considered a double A side.
HP(1): The highest position the item reached in the charts, and if it reached number 1, the amount of weeks spent at that position.
TI: This stands for "Times In" which is basically how many weeks the item spent on the charts. Note that in Sweden, the charts were not produced over summer for a number of weeks, and also for a few weeks over the Christmas / New Year period.
NP: The number of programmes the song played on the "Tio i topp" radio chart.
