"Like The Wind" was the Belgian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1999, performed in English (only the second time that Belgium had entered a song entirely in English) by Vanessa Chinitor.

The song was performed second on the night (following Lithuania's Aistė with Strazdas and preceding Spain's Lydia with "No quiero escuchar"). At the close of voting, it had received 38 points, placing 12th in a field of 23.

The song features Chinitor explaining that she needs to be "like the wind", in the sense that it is eternal and doesn't care about what happens to be in its way. For her Eurovision appearance, Vanessa wore a red dress which left her shoulders bear, whilst her female backing singers appeared in black. She was also accompanied by a man in a grey suit, who played the Mongolian nose fluit.

It was succeeded as Belgian representative at the 2000 Contest by Nathalie Sorce with "Envie De Vivre".
