'Venners nærhet' was the Norwegian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1989, performed in Norwegian by Britt Synnøve Johansen.
The song is a ballad, with Synnøve singing about the power that friendship can have, even when the rest of the world is against the friends in question.
The song was performed eighth on the night, and ended up 17th in a field of 22 competitors at the close of voting.
This single, released in Germany, puts the English version, 'Words of friendship' on the A-side, and the original Norwegian version on the B-side.
