This is a list of all records, that peaked as 1# on the Swedish "Tio-I-Topp" chart.
It was a voting list, with a jury that voted direct in the radio broadcast, and the rules changed over the years.
From the beginning it was 30 tracks in "Trettio I Test". Ten were eliminated.
There were 20 tracks each Saturday, but five were eliminated before the broadcast. First you voted on 5 tracks, that should NOT be on the list. Then you voted on the rest to get the Tio I Topp.
When finished, the list will contain some hundred tracks.
The list will start on the 14th of October, 1961, and end on the 29th of June, 1974.
I will add them in order of when they reached the 1# position.
Most RCA and RCA Victor 45rpm releases at this time were not really Swedish releases. They were German releases, but sold in Sweden.
Tio-I-Topp went on export in appr. 1965. BBC Radio One f. ex. started an own variation called "The Top Ten Game".
There was also a production between 6 countries (Sweden
, England, Norway, Belgium, Switzerland and Finland) called "European Pop Jury" based in London, UK. BBC:s Johnny Beerling and SR:s Klas Burling were the producers.
But that's another story.
