"Som en dröm" ("Like a dream") was the Swedish entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1967, performed in Swedish by Östen Warnerbring, the winner of Melodifestivalen 1967. The runner-up in the pre-selections was Warnerbring himself with his second entry, "En valsfan". Furthermore, in 1960 Warnerbring and Inger Berggren had won Melodifestivalen with "Alla andra får varann" but then Sveriges Radio had selected Siw Malmkvist to perform the song in London.[1]

"Som en dröm" was performed seventh on the night, following the Switzerland's Géraldine with "Quel cœur vas-tu briser?" and preceding Finland's Fredi with "Varjoon - suojaan". At the close of voting, it had received 7 points, placing 8th in a field of 17.

The song was succeeded as Swedish representative in the 1968 contest by Claes-Göran Hederström, singing "Det börjar verka kärlek, banne mig".
