Ellinor Nilsson: The Beatles i Sverige år 1963. En studie om The Beatles radioinspelning på Karlaplan och gruppens mottagande i media under samma turné [The Beatles in Sweden 1963. A study of The Beatles’ radio recording on Karlaplan and how the group was depicted in Swedish media during the tour]. Uppsala universitet: Institutionen för musikvetenskap, examensarbete 15 högskolepoäng, 2012.
In October 1963 The Beatles started their first tour abroad, which took place in Sweden. Except for their concerts and their participation in a television show, they also did one recording to be broadcasted on radio. The aim of this study is to define how come The Beatles chose to travel to Sweden and why the group was an interesting product for the Swedish organizers. The study compares the group’s radio recording with the same but published songs and introduces articles and announcements from newspapers of the same time.
One inference of the study is media’s focus on The Beatles’ appearance. That their recording on Karlaplan has more distorsion and a higher BPM number than their record recordings is another. The several connections between The Beatles and Sweden is, what I interpret, the main reason why Sweden was the tour’s destination.
