"Kinder dieser Welt" (English translation: "Children Of This World") was the Austrian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1985, performed in German by Gary Lux. The song was written by Englishman Mick Jackson, better known for penning the disco hit "Blame It on the Boogie" in 1978. Lyricist Michael Kunze had previously co-written Silver Convention's 1977 entry for Germany, "Telegram", and in the late 70s both Kunze and co-writer Geoff Bastow had also worked as session musicians and composers for other successful Germany-based disco acts like Boney M. and Amanda Lear.

The song was performed seventeenth on the night (following Sweden's Kikki Danielsson with "Bra vibrationer" and preceding Luxembourg's Margo, Franck Olivier, Diane Solomon, Ireen Sheer, Malcolm and Chris Roberts with "Children, Kinder, Enfants"). At the close of voting, it had received 60 points, placing 8th in a field of 19.

The song is a ballad about the innocence and power of children.

It was succeeded as Austrian representative in the 1986 Contest by Timna Brauer singing "Die Zeit Ist Einsam".
