The lyrics of ”Det bästa” (The Best) was written by the Swedish poet Karin Boye in 1922. In a few sentences it describes life, god and loneliness. Albin Johansson, aka PAL, used these words and composed a minimalistic pop song with an 80s wibe, performed by the classical singer Sabina Zweiacker.

Composed, produced, and mixed by Albin Johansson. Mastered by Hans Olsson Brookes. Cover painting by August Hagborg (Photo: Erik Cornelius/Nationalmuseum).


Det bästa som vi äga,
det kan man inte giva,
det kan man inte säga
och inte heller skriva.

Det bästa i ditt sinne
kan intet förorena.
Det lyser djupt där inne
för dig och Gud allena.

Det är vår rikdoms råga
att ingen ann kan nå det.
Det är vårt armods plåga
att ingen ann kan få det.
