"Einfach Weg" (English translation: "Just Get Away", also "Simply Gone") was the Austrian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1984, performed in German by Anita.

The song was performed thirteenth on the night (following Yugoslavia's Izolda & Vlado with "Ciao, amore" and preceding Germany's Mary Roos with "Aufrecht Geh'n"). At the close of voting, it had received 5 points, placing 19th (last) in a field of 19.

The song is about the singer's need to get away from her life, regardless of what others might think.

It was succeeded as Austrian representative in the 1985 Contest by Gary Lux singing "Kinder dieser Welt". Gary actually provided backing to Anita.
