Svensktoppen (Swedish: [ˈsvɛ̂nːskˌtɔpːɛn]) is a weekly record chart airing on Sveriges Radio. Until January 2003, the songs had to be in the Swedish language.[1][2] Svensktoppen has aired since 1962[2], except for the years 1982–1985[3]. In the years leading up to the January 2003 change, the programme was strongly dominated by dansband music.[4]

The first number one hit song was "Midnattstango" performed by Swedish crooner Lars Lönndahl.

New rules on 17 January 2016 restricted the maximum length for a song to chart to one year.[5]
