Selected song  "Det blir alltid värre framåt natten"

For the Eurovision Song Contest 1978, Sweden held a national final called Melodifestivalen 1978. The winner and representant was "Det blir alltid värre framåt natten", sung by Björn Skifs, and written and composed by Peter Himmelstrand.

At ESC in Paris, 22 April, Björn Skifs intended to cause controversy by singing in English, which could make him disqualified. Instead, he sang a part of the song in nonsense words, but fortunately only Swedes knew the words were wrong. He finished 14th (out of 20).
