For the Eurovision Song Contest 1972, Sweden chose their entrant in a national selection called Melodifestivalen 1972. About 1,000 entries were submitted, and Sveriges Radio picked 10 of them for the final. Family Four, last year's representant, won, again with a song written by Håkan Almquist. It was called Härliga sommardag, meaning Wonderful summer day.

At ESC, they finished 13th (out of 18).
