Abstract [en]

In this article, Hans Alfredson's 1965 phonogram (LP) and illustrated children's book Blommig falukorv (Flowery Frankfurters) are analyzed with the help of play theory. The argument is that Johan Huizinga's theory of play provides a particularly fruitful approach to storytelling across media. The analysis focuses on a selection of the songs/texts from Blommig falukorv, categorizing them under the headings "Songs about Play," "Playful Humor and Nonsense," and "A Pornographic Appendix for the Youngest." Our reading of Blommig falukorv shows that play theory provides a useful approach to storytelling across media; in addition, Blommig falukorv appears to be a particularly rich case of storytelling play, as witnessed in the choice of subjects, language forms, visual style, musical composition, orchestration, and oral delivery and performance.
