Tor Endresen San Francisco
"San Francisco" was the Norwegian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1997, performed in Norwegian - with some lyrics in English - by Tor Endresen.
The song is a moderately up-tempo number, with a sound similar to rock music from the late 1960s. Endresen delivers a paean to San Francisco as an idealised paradise from that decade, with lyrics containing many references to slogans ("Make love not war"), people (Jimi Hendrix and John Lennon) and song titles ("California Dreamin'", "Blowin' in the Wind") from that era, as well as key events such as the moon landing and the Woodstock festival.
The chorus further idealises the city and the period, with it being described as "A time of peace, a spring of youth/No guns, no war, no disco/Just lovely flowers in your hair".
