"Listen To Your Heartbeat" (Original Swedish title: "Lyssna till ditt hjärta") was the Swedish entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 2001.

Friends greatly resembled former Swedish Eurovision winners, ABBA. The group comprised two female singers, a blonde and a brunette, a male pianist, two male guitarists and a female backing singer. The blonde singer, Nina Inhammar, sported a red jacket and trousers over a sparkly beige top, and a brown belt decorated with diamond studs. The brunette, Kim Kärnfalk, sported an off-the-shoulder white top, and dark red leather trousers, with a black belt.

"Listen To Your Heartbeat" became part of a controversy after it was claimed that it was plagiarised from Belgium's 1996 entry "Liefde is een kaartspel". At first this was denied by the Swedish composers, Thomas G:son and Henrik Sethsson, but after the Belgian songwriters and the author's organisation SABAM pressed for legal action, a cash settlement was agreed.

A Japanese version of the song can be heard as the opening for the anime series Di Gi Charat Nyo! from 2003.
