Swedish Smorgasbord

Sweden House Smorgasbord, New Berlin, Ohio
Originally uploaded by bayswater97

You don’t need to speak Swedish to enjoy today’s veritable smorgasbord of tacky musical treats, sent to me by a fellow blogger whose identity shall remain shrouded in mystery. Though I suspect he is just trying to distance himself from the music.

The kitschy compilation contains joyous salutes to cigarettes and hula hoops, a love song to the Beatles, inexplicably set to the tune of “Girl from Ipanema”, and an oozing rash of corny ricky-ticky cha cha, boogie, and twist numbers. Then there’s my favorite for the title alone, “Plywood Brothers” which seems to reference Duke Ellington, but I'm not sure.

Please enjoy the Dumma Svenskar (Silly Swedes) compilation responsibly.
