"Det blir alltid värre framåt natten" (English translation: "It Always Becomes Worse When the Night Comes") was the Swedish entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1978, performed in Swedish by Björn Skifs.

At the Eurovision Song Contest 1978 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 these were wrong.

It was succeeded as Swedish representative at the 1979 Contest by Ted Gärdestad with "Satellit".
