Hanne Krogh Lykken Er
0.0/10 rating (0 votes)

Draw Position 18, Final Position 17, Points (Final) 65

"Lykken er" ("Happiness is", the title is often rendered with an ellipsis) was the Norwegian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1971, performed in Norwegian by Hanne Krogh.

The song is a moderately up-tempo number, with Krogh describing what she sees as examples of happiness - a series of small pleasures such as "an old hat/Which used to belong to your best friend" and "breakfast in bed".

During Preview Week, Krogh was shown singing her song sitting on top of a cliff, standing on roofs, walking down the pier in her hometown, and running with local children. On the night of the Contest, she sang the song in a ball gown, with elbow-length gloves and a parasol, which was used as a prop of sorts at different points in the song.

The relatively high score for such a low finish is due to the voting structure in place at the time, where each entrant was effectively guaranteed 34 points.
