"Du hast mich so fasziniert" (You fascinated me so much) was the Austrian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1960, performed in German by Harry Winter.

The song was performed seventh on the night, following Norway's Nora Brockstedt with "Voi Voi" and preceding Monaco's François Deguelt with "Ce soir-là". At the close of voting, it had received 6 points, placing it seventh in a field of 13.

The song is in the chanson style popular at the Contest at the time, with Winter singing about a girl who fascinated him somewhere in Europe (possibly in Madrid or Rome) and about whom he can't stop thinking. At the end of the song, however, he reveals that "everybody knows it, but you" - in other words, he never admitted his fascination to the girl.

The song was succeeded as Austrian representative in the 1961 contest by Jimmy Makulis singing "Sehnsucht".
