Being one of the biggest names in pop music, you would wish for the Beatles that if they got a musical tribute, it would be a worthy one. 'Beatles', written by Sven Olov Bagge and Claes Bure, was not that song. It was a calculated move by the Swedish band Forbes to use English phrases, motivated by the fact that the 1977 Eurovision Song Contest took place in the United Kingdom.
The audience cheered at the song, but the juries had another opinion. The song finished last, with only two points from West Germany.
At the Swedish singles chart, it peaked at number 3, amazingly.
