"Dansevise" (English title: "I loved you"; English translation: "Dance song") was the winning song of the Eurovision Song Contest 1963 performed in Danish by Grethe and Jørgen Ingmann representing Denmark. This was the first entry performed by a duo to win the Contest and also the first Scandinavian winner.
The song was performed eighth on the night, following Finland's Laila Halme with "Muistojeni laulu" and preceding Yugoslavia's Vice Vukov with "Brodovi". At the close of voting, it had received 42 points, thus winning from a field of 16.
The song is a moderately up-tempo tune in which the singer hymns the praises of dancing, specifically with her "beloved friend".
Jörgen Ingmann died on 23 March 2015 in Denmark at the age of 89, after he separated from his wife Grethe in 1975.
