Adolphson–Falk is a Swedish synthpop band, fronted by Tomas Adolphson (music, vocals) and Anders Falk (lyrics, music, vocals). Greg Fitzpatrick (keyboard) and Dagge Lundquist (mixing) were of importance for the successful electronical sound.

Tomas Adolphson and Anders Falk met while completing their compulsory national service in 1968 and started their collaboration. In the 1970s they released a handful of singles and the album Nattexpressen and participated in Melodifestivalen 1979. The breakthrough was when the single "Blinkar blå" ("Flashing Blue") was played in the Swedish radio show Eldorado in 1981. The single was followed by the album Med rymden i blodet (With space in my/the blood). The single "Mer jul" ("More Christmas"), with its self-ironic lyrics about Christmas obsession and with sounds from Kalle Anka och hans vänner önskar God Jul (From All of Us to All of You) spicing up the background, was a hit in 1984 and in 2013 is still the most often played Swedish Christmas tune on Swedish radio.[1]

The theme of the lyrics on Med rymden i blodet was mostly radio engineering, astronomy and how man is related to cosmos. Over the years the theme has shifted from one of technology/natural science to a more colloquial one.
