"Alltid sommer" (English title: "All I Ever Wanted (Was You)") was the Norwegian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1998, performed in Norwegian by Lars Fredriksen.

The song is an up-tempo number, with Fredriksen telling his lover what a change she has made in his life. He likens this change to the arrival of a perpetual summer, and tells her that "you won my life".

The song was performed twenty-second on the night, following Finland's Edea with "Aava" and preceding Estonia's Koit Toome with "Mere lapsed". At the close of voting, it had received 79 points, placing 8th in a field of 25.

It was succeeded as Norwegian representative at the 1999 Contest by Van Eijk with "Living My Life Without You".
