In the 1960s his career started of with becoming the first one ever to score a number 1 single on the new Swedish chart "Svensktoppen" (the most important chart). The year was 1962 and the song were called "Midnattstango", which stayed on the charts in 18 weeks. Between the years 1962-1972 he had 35 songs on the chart, including some classic Swedish tunes such as: "Visa Mig Hur Man Går Hem", Söker Du Så Finner Du" (both 1964), "Tusen Och En Natt" (1966), "Kvällens Sista Dans" (1967) & "Allting Är Så Underbart" (1970).
