Olle Adolphson

Genre swedish, svenskt, Visor, singer-songwriter, folk

Olle Adolphson (born May 2, 1934 in Stockholm, dead March 10, 2004) was a much loved Swedish writer, singer and songwriter.

Adolphson's theme was, according to himself, "to see the great in small things and the small in big things". Some of his most loved songs follow that description, for example Gustaf Lindströms visa ("The Ballad of Gustaf Lindström", about the human victims of urban renewal), Trubbel ("Trouble", about male disappointments and defeats), and Nu har jag fått den jag vill ha ("Now I've got the one I want", about the futility of getting one's wishes).

Adolphson wrote most of his songs in a short period, from the late 50s to the early 70s, afterwards turning to film and choir arrangements, but is still regarded as one of the four great Swedish songwriters of the 1900s, together with Birger Sjöberg, Evert Taube and Cornelis Vreeswijk.
