"Brandenburger Tor" ("The Brandenburg Gate") was the Norwegian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1990, performed in Norwegian by Ketil Stokkan. The song is inspired by the collapse of the Berlin Wall, with Stokkan singing about the amazement that many Europeans felt as the Wall came down, and also at the reunification of Berlin, with the titular Brandenburg Gate no longer representing the border between West and East Germany. As befits the triumphant lyrical theme, the song is performed over an up-tempo beat.
