"Casanova" was the Norwegian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1977, performed in Norwegian by Anita Skorgan.

The song is an up-tempo number, with Skorgan describing her husband, who is absent at the time. She is uncomplimentary about this, singing that he sees himself as a Casanova or a Don Juan figure, and this irritates her. In this particular instance, he claimed he was going for a walk, but "his suit and car are gone", implying something else.

The song was performed fifth on the night, following Austria's Schmetterlinge with "Boom Boom Boomerang" and preceding West Germany's Silver Convention with "Telegram". At the close of voting, it had received 18 points, placing 15th in a field of 18.

It was succeeded as Norwegian representative at the 1978 contest by Jahn Teigen with "Mil etter mil".
