"My Heart Goes Boom" was the Norwegian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 2000, performed in English by Charmed.

The song is an up-tempo number, with the lyrics describing the first time a young woman saw her lover. Attracting most attention, however, were the lines "You were standing in the shadows, looking quite impossible/I lost my mind and popsicle". The unusual imagery (particularly when coupled with Israel's entry of the same year featuring the line "I want a cucumber") has led some observers to describe the 2000 Contest as having a food theme.

The song was performed eighth on the night, following Malta's Claudette Pace with "Desire" and preceding Russia's Alsou with "Solo". At the close of voting, it had received 57 points, placing 11th in a field of 24.[1]

It was succeeded as Norwegian representative at the 2001 Contest by Haldor Lægreid with "On My Own".
