"Dansevise" (English title: "I loved you"; English translation: "Dance song") was the winning song of the Eurovision Song Contest 1963 performed in Danish by Grethe and Jørgen Ingmann representing Denmark. This was the first entry performed by a duo to win the Contest and also the first Scandinavian winner.

The song was performed eighth on the night, following Finland's Laila Halme with "Muistojeni laulu" and preceding Yugoslavia's Vice Vukov with "Brodovi". At the close of voting, it had received 42 points, thus winning from a field of 16.

The song is a moderately up-tempo tune in which the singer hymns the praises of dancing, specifically with her "beloved friend".

The song was succeeded as contest winner in 1964 by Gigliola Cinquetti performing "Non ho l'età" for Italy.

It was succeeded as Danish representative at the 1964 Contest by Bjørn Tidmand with "Sangen om dig".

The Danish band Outlandish has made a cover of the song called "Kom igen" which is featured in the game FIFA 07.

DR decided to include "Dansevise" in the opening sequence of the Eurovision Song Contest 2014 Grand Final.
