"Life Looks Better in Spring" is a song composed by Nasos Lambrianides and Melis Konstantinou. The song, produced by Jon Gregory and performed by Jon Lilygreen and The Islanders, represented Cyprus at the Eurovision Song Contest 2010, competing in the second semi-final on 27 May, and qualifying Cyprus to the final for the first time since 2004. In the final, the song was performed fifth in the draw, and ended 21st with 27 points.

"Life Looks Better in Spring" has two unusual features for a Eurovision entry: The title of the song doesn't appear in the lyrics (Although "life will be better in spring" does), and it doesn't have a bridge.

The song was the outright winner in the Cypriot National Final, held on 7 February 2010 at CyBC studios in Nicosia, Cyprus.[1][2] So far, it is the only song that managed to receive 12 points from both the televoters and the professional jury in a Cypriot selection.
