"Intet er nytt under solen" ("There's nothing new under the sun") was the Norwegian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1966, performed in Norwegian by Åse Kleveland. In the Norwegian selections before 1977, all competing songs were performed twice, with big and small orchestra, but this is the only song to have been issued in two versions; Åse Kleveland's record using the big arrangement and Grynet Molvig issuing a version with the small orchestra. This song was Norway's best placing until 1985.

The song was performed sixth on the night, following Yugoslavia's Berta Ambrož with "Brez besed" and preceding Finland's Ann Christine with "Playboy". At the close of voting, it had received 15 points, placing 3rd in a field of 18 - Norway's highest finish at the time.

It was succeeded as Norwegian representative at the 1967 contest by Kirsti Sparboe with "Dukkemann".
