"Il me donne rendez-vous" (English translation: "He Makes a Date with Me") was the French entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1995, performed in French by Nathalie Santamaria.

The song was performed twelfth on the night (following Croatia's Magazin & Lidija with "Nostalgija" and preceding Hungary's Csaba Szigeti with "Új név a régi ház falán"). At the close of voting, it had received 94 points, placing 4th in a field of 23.

The song is an up-tempo number, with Santamaria describing a series of dates with her lover, including a trip to the Marquesas Islands.

It was succeeded as French representative at the 1996 Contest by Dan Ar Braz & L'Héritage des Celtes with "Diwanit Bugale".
