"Sing Little Birdie" (1958) ►

"All" was the United Kingdom entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 1957 performed in English by Patricia Bredin. At a length of 1:52 minutes, it had the distinction of being the shortest entry in the history of the Contest until 2015 as well as being the first song to be performed in English.

The song was performed 3rd on the night (following Luxembourg's "Amours mortes (tant de peine)" and preceding Italy's "Corde della mia chitarra", the latter coincidentally being the longest entry in the history of the contest at 5:09 minutes). The song was placed 7th out of 10 songs, and received a total of 6 points.

No studio recording of the song is known to exist.
