So Laang We's Du Do Bast

"So laang we's du do bast" (English translation: "As long as you are there") was Luxembourg's entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1960. Performed by Camillo Felgren, the song represented two firsts for Luxembourg by being sung in Luxembourgish (all of the country's previous entries had been in French) and by a male singer. It failed to achieve a first in the voting, however, coming 13th out of 13 entries after receiving just one point.

No commercial recording was ever made of the original Luxembourgish version by Camillo Felgren. However, he did record a German-language version 40 years later.

The song is in the chanson style, with Felgren telling his lover that he will continue to love her "as long as you are there". If she leaves him, he sings, he will continue to do so but she won't notice.

The song was performed third on the night (following "Alla Andra Får Varann" from Sweden's Siw Malmkvist and preceding "Det Var En Yndig Tid" performed by Denmark's Katy Bødtger).
