"Den vilda" (translation The wild one, English version The Wilderness Mistress) is a winter-related song by Swedish band One More Time. It won the Melodifestivalen 1996 contest and hence became the Swedish entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 1996 in Oslo, Norway.

The song was performed as the 23rd and last in the Eurovision Song Contest of 1996. It was written by Peter Grönvall. At the close of the voting it had received 100 points and placed 3rd of the 23 entries. It also peaked at #7 on the Swedish singles chart.[1]

Dansaðu vindur[edit]

"Dansaðu vindur" is a 2013 adaptation of the song and is interpreted by Eivør Pálsdóttir (alternatively Eivör Pálsdóttir) from Faroe Islands. It uses the music of "Den vilda" with new lyrics in Icelandic language. It became a hit in the winter of 2013 in Iceland. The single is taken from the 14-track Icelandic compilation album Frostrósir - Heyr himnasmiður with contributions by a number of well-known artists.
