Benny Andersson top of the pops

Abba star Benny Andersson has achieved yet another musical milestone. The song 'Du är min man' (You are my man') by Andersson's orchestra and Helen Sjöholm has now spent a record 143 weeks on the Swedish top ten list, Svensktoppen.

And there are no signs that the song is set to drop off the list any time soon. When the latest chart was announced by Sveriges Radio on Sunday, Andersson and Sjöholm had climbed back up one spot to fourth place.

The chart has existed in various forms since 1962. Only songs composed by Swedish citizens are eligible for the consideration of a jury that votes on the week’s best tracks.

Over the years the list has been dominated by dance bands, ballads and the sort of Eurovision schlager music for which Sweden is famed.
