From Bobbysocks!'s 'Let it Swing' to 'Fairytale' by Alexander Rybak, Norway has a Eurovision history to be proud of. Here, on the day of Carl Espen's semifinal performance, is a Spotify and YouTube playlist of the country's finest moments.

Norway has won Eurovision a respectable three times: in 1985 with Bobbysock!s' 'La det Svinge' or 'Let it Swing'; in 1995 with Secret Garden's orchestral Nocturne; and, most memorably, in 2009 with Fairytale, by the violin-wielding Belorusian Alexander Rybak.  

Here's a Spotify playlist bringing together some of Norway's best entries from the distant and more recent past, followed by the four finalists from this year's Melodi Grand Prix, and ending with Carl Espen, whose Silent Storm is this year's entry. 

And here are videos of the country's three winning entries:
