Xandee performing "1 Life" for Belgium.

"1 Life" was the Belgian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 2004, performed in English by Xandee.

The song was performed thirteenth in the final, to which Belgium was prequalified (following Bosnia and Herzegovina's Deen with "In the Disco" and preceding Russia's Yulia Savicheva with "Believe Me"). At the close of voting, it had received 7 points, placing 22nd and forcing Belgium to qualify through the semi-final at their next Contest appearance.

The song is an up-tempo Euro disco number, with Xandee singing about the need to take advantage of every opportunity because we only have "one life".

It was succeeded as Belgian representative at the 2005 Contest by Nuno Resende with "Le grand soir".
