Som en vind - Edin-Ådahl

There was something completely naff about the Swedish entry for the 1990 Eurovision Song Contest. Well, maybe it's just me, but a quote like 'Like a wind / blowing within me' seems a bit vulgar. It wasn't Sweden's biggest success in the Contest, because it finished 16th.

Edin-Ådahl consisted of brothers Bertil and Lasse Edin and Simon and Frank Ådahl. Between 1980 and 1994 they recorded eight Swedish and five English albums, some of which were filled with Christian music. Their Swedish albums were pretty successful in Sweden, but the English albums suffered from poor distribution and, according to some, lousy lyrics. What a surprise...
