◄1977 1978 1979►

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 were wrong. He finished 14th (out of 20).
