"Monsieur" was the Luxembourgish entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1989, performed in French by Park Café, a six-piece band fronted by American singer Maggie Parke.

The song is an up-tempo number, with the lead singer describing a man who "lives in a dream" (or even "in Tooneland", according to the backing vocals) and believes that he will make it big in Hollywood. She sings, further, that "I believe/that I'm his star", seemingly regardless of the success he might enjoy.

The song was performed eleventh on the night, following Sweden's Tommy Nilsson with "En dag" and preceding Denmark's Birthe Kjær with "Vi maler byen rød". At the close of voting, it had received 8 points, placing 20th in a field of 22.

It was succeeded as Luxembourgish representative at the 1990 Contest by Céline Carzo with "Quand je te rêve".
