Touch My Life (With Summer), alternatively You touched my life with summer as it states the Eurovision official website, was the Norwegian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1975, performed in English by Ellen Nikolaysen.

The song is a love ballad, with Nikolaysen singing to a lover and describing her feelings about the relationship they had over the recent summer. In the final verse, she makes mention of "what you left in me/Something that will grow, everyone will know", which is apparently a literal reference to pregnancy, rather than a figurative reference to memories, as the final lines describe the lover's return and "Then we'll be three, under the summer sun".

The song was performed sixth on the night, following Luxembourg's Géraldine with "Toi" and preceding Switzerland's Simone Drexel with "Mikado". At the close of voting, it had received 11 points, placing 18th in a field of 19.

It was succeeded as Norwegian representative at the 1976 contest by Anne-Karine Strøm with "Mata Hari".
