Friday’s X-mas Quote – Sweden 1963!

Our quote today is from the Swedish entry of 1963. The selected entry was “En gång i Stockholm” by Monica Zetterlund.

Monica Zetterlund was born on 20 September 1937, in Hagfors, Sweden. Her real name is Eva Monica Nilsson. She was an established singer and actress in Sweden, having released 20 albums upon her death in 2005.

In 1963, she represented Sweden in Eurovision. Her song was “En gång i Stockholm” and it was composed by Bobbie Ericson and Beppe Wolgers. It placed 13th (last) in the final with no points at all.

Kom med mig, sa min vän

Nu faller vinterns första tysta snö

Och sommaren är slut

The quote is in Swedish as it is the rest of the song and it means “Come with me, said my friend, now the first silent wine snow falls and the summer is over.”

Sanna Nielsen reenacts the Eurovision performance during Melodifestivalen 2015.
