Ted was the second album from Swedish singer/songwriter Ted Gärdestad, released in 1973 on the Polar Music label. It contains the hits "Jag Ska Fånga En Ängel", "Sol, Vind Och Vatten", "Come Give Me Love" as well as his 1973 Melodifestivalen entry "Oh Vilken Härlig Da'" (#4). The album was produced by Benny Andersson, Björn Ulvaeus and Ted, engineered by Michael B. Tretow and features vocals by Agnetha Fältskog and Anni-Frid Lyngstad.

An English-language version of the track "Jag Ska Fånga En Ängel" entitled "Gonna Make You My Angel" was released as the B-side of non-album single and Melodifestivalen entry "Rockin' 'n' Reelin'" in early 1975. "Gonna Make You My Angel" remains unreleased on CD.
