Biography

Björn Nils Olof Skifs (born 20 April 1947) is a Swedish singer, songwriter, actor, and screenwriter.

Björn Skifs formed his first musical group Slam Creepers in 1962. Slam Creepers split in 1969 and Skifs went on to form a new band, Blåblus, in 1972. As the singer of Blue Swede, the band had a #1 hit on Billboard Hot 100 in 1974 with a cover of "Hooked on a Feeling". This was the first time ever any Swedes had come that far in America.
Skifs left the band in 1976 to pursue a solo career.[citation needed] He recorded the duet "Med varann" with Anni-Frid Lyngstad for his 1975 album Schiffz.
Skifs appeared as The Arbiter on the original studio album for Chess, released in 1984. A single and video, "The Arbiter's Song" was released in 1985. Skifs also recorded several demos for the album, including "One Night in Bangkok", later performed by Murray Head. Skifs did not perform the role on stage; in the original London production the character was played by Tom Jobe.
Povel Ramel gave Skifs the Karamelodiktstipendiet award in 1984.
Björn Skifs represented Sweden twice in the Eurovision Song Contest, both in the 1978 contest and in the 1981 contest. In 2000, he hosted Melodifestivalen, the Swedish heat of the Eurovision Song Contest, along with nine other presenters.
In 2002, he had a major hit with the song "Håll Mitt Hjärta" (Hold My Heart) which is a Swedish version of André de Lang's song "Same Ol' Story". It stayed on Svensktoppen between 27 April 2003 and 8 January 2006 for a total of 142 weeks.
