The song was awarded given a Grammis award for "Song of the year 1996" and the song also won a Rockbjörnen award in the "Swedish song of the year 1996" category.[1]

Scoring a Svensktoppen hit for seven weeks between 20 July and 31 August 1996, it peaked at 5th position.[2] The song also charted at Trackslistan.

Lyrical, the song asks for relaxing with leisure activities, like fishing, to escape stress, today (1996) as well as back in the 17th century.

The "Väder-Annika" character from the Rally radio program performed the song in August 1996 as "Slå och smiska" using the stage name "Läder-Annika" causing controversies in newspapers.
