Retro Saturday: Bjorn Skifs

I noticed his name among the Swedish Grammy nominations this week. So let's take a little nostalgia trip with the man who represented Sweden at ESC in 1978 and 1981.

"Fangad i en Drom" which he sang in Dublin in 1981 was my favourite of his two entries, although I never figured out the significance of the gloves :) indeed his styling was completely wrong but his vocals were just right for the drama of the song.

"Det Blir Alltid...." from Paris in 1978: indeed his styling wasn't any better three years earlier either, this achieved notoriety in Sweden for him just making up the words as he went along.
