Melodifestivalen 1985 was the selection for the 25th song to represent Sweden at the Eurovision Song Contest. It was the 24th time that this system of picking a song had been used. 90 songs were submitted to SVT for the competition. The final was broadcast on TV1 but was not broadcast on radio. The presenter, Eva Andersson, was the 1980 Miss Sweden. No orchestra was used, as all songs were performed to backing track. There have been claims that this was because SVT could not afford to hire the orchestra for two shows, as they were hosting the Eurovision Song Contest in 1985.

17 year old Pernilla Wahlgren, singing "Piccadilly Circus", was the favourite to win. However, she finished 4th and the following day Lasse Anrell from Swedish newspaper Expressen was "angry". 85% of the Expressen readers who phoned afterwards said that "the wrong song" won.

Kikki Danielsson won with the song "Bra vibrationer", which throughout the years has become something of a signature song. This was the fourth victory in a row for Bert Karlsson's label Mariann Grammofon AB. Five of the songs were, alone or not, written by Ingela 'Pling' Forsman and Monica Forsberg.
