◄1975 1977 1978►

Sweden selected their entry for ESC 1977 in the show "Melodifestivalen 1977". The winner was the song "Beatles" by a group called Forbes. It was a tribute to the rock band The Beatles, who had split up some years earlier, and was written by Sven-Olof Bagge and Claes Bure.

The contest was held in London, and Forbes performed 12th. The voting went on to be a disaster. Sweden received 2 points from Germany and nothing else, giving them their first last place since 1963. To date, there has not been anymore.
