"Hou toch van mij" ("Do love me") was the Belgian representative at the Eurovision Song Contest 1959, performed in Dutch by Bob Benny.
The song was performed eleventh on the night (following the United Kingdom's Pearl Carr & Teddy Johnson with "Sing Little Birdie"). At the close of voting, it had received 9 points, placing 6th in a field of 11.
The song is a plea from Benny to his lover to "love me as much as I love you", comparing the degree of his love to various other things as well.
It was succeeded as Belgian representative at the 1960 Contest by Fud Leclerc performing "Mon amour pour toi".
