Jahn Teigen Mil Etter Mil
0.0/10 rating (0 votes)

Draw Position 2, Final Position 20

"Mil etter mil" was the Norwegian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1978, performed in Norwegian by Jahn Teigen.

The song is a ballad, with Teigen describing his long journey to find someone and telling this person that he simply cannot walk any further - having walked "mile after mile" already.

By all accounts, Teigen did not like Carsten Klouman's brass-dominated jazz arrangement; when the song was issued as a record a few weeks after the contest, it was in a rock version with more drums and guitar, a bit of strings and no brass. This version was recorded in Norwegian and English (English lyric by American singer/songwriter David Cooper), it was a huge hit in Norway and was also issued in many other countries. Teigen also recorded a mock-Russian version on his best-selling comedy album Brakara with the group Prima Vera; this version had most of the guitars mixed out.
