Friday’s X-mas Quote – Sweden 1996!

Our quote today is from the Swedish entry of 1996. The selected entry was “Den Vilda” by One More Time.

One More Time was a three-member band that was formed in 1991. Its members are Peter Grönvall, Nanne Grönvall and Maria Rådsten. The band went to have global success with their song “Highland” entering the UK charts and one of their albums was certified gold in South Africa. One More Time never really dissolved and the members have revealed their plans on a fifth album.

Their Eurovision entry “Den Vilda” was composed by Peter Grönvall. The lyrics were written by Nanne Grönvall and the conductor of the live performance was Anders Berglund. The entry placed 3rd in the final of the contest with 100 points.

Droskan försvinner i natten

Och snön blir till drivor utmed vägens kant

Hovslagen ekar bland bergen än

Lekande sorglöst som ett vattenfall

The quote is in Swedish as it is the rest of the song and it means “The carriage is disappearing in the night and the snow becomes snowdrifts along the road. The sound of hoofs are still echoing in the mountains, playing carefree like a waterfall”
