Gyllene Tider featuring other artists throughout the years

It is one of my hobbies to keep a sort of database of Swedish artists and their connections. It is a fact that there are many many artists in Sweden, and many of them have worked together at a certain point in their career. I think specially the time of the 70ies – 80ies was a period of many collaborations. I started with this many years ago and I am trying to bring my paper-excel database into a better platform. Who knows where this will end.

I also have to mention that the fact that I started to listen to the Swedish Per & Marie material opened the doors for me to other Swedish music and some of these artists have become a fix part of my music collection. And this collection is growing year after year.

Gyllene Tider is, of course, no exception, so I wanted to share part of these findings here.

Marie Fredriksson – Sang backing vocals on  “The Heartland Café” and duet with GT “Ingenting av vad du behöver” from “Puls”. She also sang “Vandrar i ett sommarregn” with GT on TV and joined GT on stage a couple of times before. On the other side, GT also joined Roxette in 2010 in Halmstad.

  

Eva Dahlgren – sang “Vandrar i ett sommarregn” in “Puls”. As far as I know, GT never played this song (or any other) live together. It’s about time!

Niklas Strömstedt – sang “Da’n före da’n” with Gyllene Tider, taken from Glitter, glögg & rock ‘n’ roll. Played as musician and sang backing vocals on “The Heartland Café” and other albums. On his TV program “Tack för musiken” he and Lasse Winnerbäck performed “Honung och guld”.

 

Christoffer Lundquist – Produced Gyllene Tider’s albums “Fin 5 Fel” and “Det är dags att tänka på refrängen”. Ex member of Brainpool. Brainpool and Gyllene Tider sang “My Sweet Lord (she’s so fine)” on TV together.

Wilmer X – joined GT on stage during Återtåget, sung “Marie i växeln” together. They also formed The Lonely Boys together with some of the GT-ers in 1995.

 

Anne-Lie Rydé – “When Love Is On The Phone” from “The Heartland Café”.

Lasse Lindbom – produced many GT songs and albums. He also recorded some songs written by Per, he performed “För dina bruna ögon skull” on Melodifestivalen in 1980. The song is also recorded by GT.

Clarence Öfwerman – like Christoffer, produced Gyllene Tider’s albums “Fin 5 Fel” and “Det är dags att tänka på refrängen”.

Snippet of Marie’s song from Magnus Lindgren’s album

As we reported some weeks ago, the upcoming album by Magnus Lindgren, “Souls”, will feature a song sung by Marie.

In an EPK uploaded to Magnus’ YouTube, Magnus reveals that the song is called “On a Sunday” and that it was written 10 years ago for an album they had been working on together but “was never released”. He also explains that the lyrics were written by Marie and her husband Mikael Bolyos “on a Sunday afternoon”, and thus the title.

You can listen to a short “snippet” of the song, which has been recorded again for this album, in the video below.

The release date of the album is still unknown.
