"Die ganze Welt braucht Liebe" (The whole world needs love) was the Austrian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1958, performed in German by Liane Augustin.

The song was performed ninth on the night (following Germany's Margot Hielscher with "Für Zwei Groschen Musik" and preceding Switzerland's Lys Assia with "Giorgio"). At the close of voting, the song had received 8 points, placing it fifth in a field of 10.

The song is a ballad, in which Augustin sings that the entire world needs love and asks if it should be any different for her. She answers her own rhetorical question in the negative.

The song was succeeded as Austrian representative in the Eurovision Song Contest 1959 by Ferry Graf singing "Der K und K Kalypso aus Wien".
