History

Danielsson won the right to perform at Gothenburg by winning the Swedish national final, Melodifestivalen 1985, where she was the first singer to perform. The song won by seven points over the second-place finisher, Dan Tillberg with his song "Ta min hand."

At Gothenburg, the song was performed sixteenth on the night, after Switzerland's Mariella Farré and Pino Gasparini with "Piano, Piano", and before Austria's Gary Lux with "Kinder dieser Welt." At the end of judging that evening, "Bra vibrationer" took the third-place slot with 103 points. Finland and Norway both awarded Sweden 12 points that night. Danielsson's performance was backed up by dancers Mary Johnson and David Johnson.

Sung in contemporary schlager music style, the singer relates her strong emotions upon falling in love with a man with whom she had just met. She is concerned about things moving too fast, but in the end, she feels "good vibrations" and is very happy with what has transpired.

After Eurovision, the song was placed at #12 on the Swedish charts, and it stayed in the top 50 for eight weeks.
