"Door de wind" ("Through the Wind") was the Belgian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1989, performed in Dutch by Ingeborg. The song was composed by Dutch singer-songwriter Stef Bos.

The song was performed sixth on the night, following Turkey's Pan with "Bana bana" and preceding the United Kingdom's Live Report with "Why Do I Always Get it Wrong?". At the close of voting, it had received 13 points, placing 19th in a field of 22.

The song is a mid-tempo love ballad, with Ingeborg explaining to her lover that she "never feel[s] lost" as a result of him, despite the titular wind. Ingeborg also recorded the song in English, as "Breakaway".

It was succeeded as Belgian representative in the 1990 Contest by Philippe Lafontaine singing "Macédomienne".
