Tor Lars Oskar Endresen is a Norwegian singer and composer who represented Norway in the Eurovision Song Contest 1997 in Dublin with the song San Francisco, which finished in joint last place with Nul Points.
Endresen was part of a popular Norwegian TV show in the early 1990s, a show with pop music from the 1950s and 1960s called Lollipop, as a singing bartender. The show went on for 30 episodes, and there were released three albums (English lyrics) with music from the show which sold very well in Norway.
A single called "Black Rain" which was released from his album "Call Me Stranger" in 1986, was nearly chosen as the themesong for the James Bond film "The Living Daylights" in 1987. The choice fell to fellow Norwegians 'a-ha'.
He has been awarded two film music awards from Disney for his singing contribution to the Norwegian version of Disney films.
