Berndt Arvid Freddie Wadling (August 2, 1951 – June 2, 2016) was a Swedish singer, actor and opera writer. He was born in Gothenburg. His 30-year musical career extended from punk to classical ballads.

In the 1980s and 1990s, he was vocalist of the Swedish alternative pop/rock duo Blue for Two. The duo started in Gothenburg in 1984 with him on vocals.

After Two for Blue stopped performing by the end of the 1990s, Wadling developed a solo career. He released a great number of albums, and very notably the highly acclaimed En skiva till kaffet (1999) and Jag är monstret (2005). He also recorded songs by John Dowland with the Forge Players in 1998.

Wadling died on June 2, 2016 in Västra Frölunda, Sweden at the age of 64.
