"Beatles", written by Sven Olov Bagge and Claes Bure, was the song that, performed by Swedish dansband Forbes, won the Swedish Melodifestivalen 1977. The song's lyrics are about the popular 1960s British rock group the Beatles and include the phrase "Yeah, yeah, yeah" as an homage to the Beatles song "She Loves You". Forbes took the song to the United Kingdom for the Eurovision Song Contest 1977, with Anders Berglund as conductor. The audience cheered at the song, not unexpectedly since the contest took place in the United Kingdom, but the jury had another opinion. The song finished last, with only two points, from West Germany.
At the Swedish singles chart, it peaked at #3.
