"Hægt og hljótt" ("Slowly and quietly") was the Icelandic entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1987, performed in Icelandic by Halla Margrét Árnadóttir.

The song is a ballad, with the singer describing the end of an evening at a restaurant or a nightclub, at which point "We all disappear slowly and quietly into the night".

It was performed fourth on the night (following Austria's Gary Lux with "Nur noch Gefühl" and preceding Belgium's Liliane Saint-Pierre with "Soldiers of Love"). At the close of voting, it had received 28 points, placing 16th in a field of 22.

It was succeeded as Icelandic representative at the 1988 Contest by Beathoven with "Þú og þeir (Sókrates)".
