"Tænker altid på dig" (English: Always thinking of you) was the Danish entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1980, performed in Danish by Bamses Venner.

The song was performed seventh on the night, following Italy's Alan Sorrenti with "Non so che darei" and preceding Sweden's Tomas Ledin with "Just nu!". At the close of voting, it had received 25 points, placing 14th in a field of 19.

The song is sung from the perspective of a man parting from his "friend" (although the lyrics suggest a lover) and promising that he will be "always thinking of you".

The performance is memorable in Eurovision folklore for the colour-coordinated (red and blue) shirts and overalls worn by the four members of the group.

It was succeeded as Danish representative at the 1981 Contest by Debbie Cameron and Tommy Seebach with "Krøller eller ej".
