Frankincense from the album A Proggy Christmas. This is very creative (ignore the video). Lots of synth in this:

That's probably the most played Swedish christmas song in history.

Even though you can see an Oberheim 2-voice and EMS VCS3 in there those synths were not used on the actual studio recording, as is often
(but not always) the case with music videos. As far as I can remember the song was recorded with a SCI Pro-one and a Boss DR-55 rhythm box.

Adolphson & Falk were definitely one of the best Swedish synth bands back in the '80s, my favorite albums being "Med Rymden i Blodet" (1982) and
"Över tid och Rum" (1984). I very much like Greg Fitzpatrick's synth work on both records.

I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.

Bumping because I just discovered this. My favorite Christmas carol + Alison Moyet + a Fairlight? Nice

Shocked that no one has posted this yet. C'mon - DX7 tubular bells, Jupiter-8 pads...
