For the 1995 Eurovision Song Contest, held in Dublin for the second consecutive year, the UK entered "Love City Groove", performed by Love City Groove. It finished in 10th place with a total of 76 points.

The selection for the UK's entry took place on Friday 31 March 1995 in A Song For Europe '95, hosted, as ever, by Terry Wogan.
