EurovisionEdit

This was Spain's first appearance at the Eurovision Song Contest, and the first occasion on which a full song was in Spanish language in the Contest.[4][5]

The song was performed first on the night, preceding Monaco's Colette Deréal with "Allons, allons les enfants". At the close of voting, it had received 8 points, placing 9th in a field of 16.[6]

It was succeeded as Spanish entry at the 1962 Contest by Victor Balaguer with "Llámame".[7] Conchita Bautista returned to the contest in 1965, singing "Qué bueno, qué bueno", again representing Spain.[8]
