"Kloden drejer" ("The planet's spinning") was the Danish entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1983, performed in Danish by Gry Johansen.

The song was performed fifteenth on the night, following Germany's Hoffmann & Hoffmann with "Rücksicht" and preceding Israel's Ofra Haza with "Khay". At the close of voting, it had received 16 points, placing 17th in a field of 20.

The song is a love song, with Gry juxtaposing a meeting between two people and the serenity it can bring with the chaos of daily life.

It was succeeded as Danish representative at the 1984 Contest by Hot Eyes with "Det' lige det".
