Haegt og Hljótt

Another Nordic Eurovision tune today, but I think this must rank as possibly the most obscure song I’ve played in my 365 Songs collections! Haegt og Hljótt (translated as “Slowly and quietly”) was performed by Halla Margrét Árnadóttir as the Icelandic entry in the 1987 Eurovision Song Contest. I think this has a lovely melody and nice chord progression, so I’ve added it to my collection! And in case you were wondering, it finished 16th on the night that Johnny Logan won for the second time with Hold Me Now (which I played back in 2010 around this time!)
