Ted Gärdestad – Take Me Back To Hollywood

Ted Gärdestad from Sweden is one of my favourite singers. Enormously popular in his homeland, it was decided to launch him internationally in 1978. The result was the English language album “Blue Virgin Isles” (his previous albums had all been in Swedish) which was even released here in Australia.

The lead single from the album was the song “Take Me Back To Hollywood” and I remember seeing the clip once on Countdown. Unfortunately, the song wasn’t a hit and I never saw the clip again – until five minutes ago for the first time in over 30 years.

You Tube is a wonderful invention and allows one to see things that you would never dream of seeing. This is one of them.

A young Molly Meldrum (minus the hat) intro-ing and outro-ing “Take Me Back To Hollywood”. He mispronounces Ted’s name terribly!
