"Love Song" was the Polish entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 2004, performed in English (with some lyrics in Spanish) by Blue Café.

The song is an up-tempo number, heavily inspired by Latin music. Lead singer Tatiana Okupnik sings that she wants to be loved, and that "Every night/I sing this way". The bridge is delivered in Spanish, in keeping with the musical style, and features Okupnik telling her lover that she wants to be his girl and that she enjoys feeling like a girl around him.

As Poland had finished the 2003 Contest in the top 10, the song was pre-qualified for the final. Here, it was performed nineteenth (following Ireland's Chris Doran with If My World Stopped Turning and preceding the United Kingdom's James Fox with "Hold On To Our Love"). At the close of voting, it had received 27 points, placing 17th in a field of 24 and requiring Poland to qualify through the semi-final at the next Contest.

It was succeeded as Polish representative at the 2005 Contest by Ivan & Delfin with "Czarna dziewczyna".
