"La fiesta terminó" (Spanish pronunciation: [la ˈfjesta termiˈno], "The Party's Over") was the Spanish entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1985, performed in Spanish by Paloma San Basilio.

The song was composed by Juan Carlos Calderón, internationally best known for writing Mocedades' 1973 entry "Eres tú, a song that only finished second in the actual Contest but still went on to become a worldwide hit.

"La fiesta terminò" was performed fifth on the night, following Denmark' s Hot Eyes with "Sku' du spørg' fra no'en?" and preceding France's Roger Bens with "Femme dans ses rêves aussi". At the close of voting, it had received 36 points, placing 14th in a field of 19.

The song is a melancholy ballad about a finished relationship. San Basilio sings that "the party's over" and asks her former lover not to insist anymore; "What good is loving without love? Why put more wood on a fire that's already burnt out...?"

It was succeeded as Spanish representative at the 1986 Contest by Cadillac with "Valentino".
