Why Isn't Ted Gärdestad's Beautiful Music More Well Known? Everyone has a favourite musician who, for some reason, remains unknown and unfairly overlooked. At least for some swedes it might be this musical giant who worked alongside with the well known Benny & Björn of ABBA fame. warning: first link a 2.7 meg mp3

Ted's dead, baby, Ted's dead.

You shouldn't mock the afflicted, so I'm not going to.

Whiny Abba fans and poor web design, colour me unsuprised.

I loved this song. It sounded like military cadence (which you can actually buy CDs of to run or exercise to). Not to mention Mark Johnson's famous, "King of Love." As soon as I heard "Hubba-Hubba-Zoot-Zoot" on the posted link, I was ready to run out and get every single Ted Gardestad CD on the market, and make him my favorite star. Then I read that he had killed himself. That always creeps me out. Nick Drake. Elliot Smith. Larry Williams. The Badfinger boys. Love 'em. but I can't give myself over to them wholeheartedly. There's always that suicide thing...
