"Fantasiaa" (Fantasy) was the Finnish entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1983, performed in Finnish by Ami Aspelund. In 1977, Aspelund's sister Monica had represented Finland in the Contest with the song "Lapponia".
The song was performed ninth on the night, following Switzerland's Mariella Farré with "Io così non ci sto" and preceding Greece's Christie Stassinopoulou with "Mou Les". At the close of voting, it had received 41 points, placing 11th in a field of 20.
The song is sung from the perspective of a young woman watching a man and his dog in a park. She asks a series of questions about him, and wonders if this might be "the beginning of a crush". Aspelund also recorded the song in English, then under the title "Fantasy Dream".
