The 1995 OGAE Second Chance Contest was the 9th OGAE Second Chance Contest, organized by the members of international Eurovision Song Contest fan club OGAE to select the best song not to make it to the Eurovision Song Contest through their national finals. This year's contest was held in Örebro in Sweden after Gladys del Pilar won the 1994 Contest with "Det vackraste jag vet".[1]

Nine songs competed in the contest with Slovenia, Israel, and Denmark returning to the contest. However a number of countries were forced to withdraw: Estonia, Finland, Netherlands, and Romania were all forced to miss the contest due to being relegated from the 1995 Eurovision Song Contest; Austria, Cyprus, Hungary, Iceland and Russia were also absent from the contest due to no national finals being held in the country for this year's Eurovision. Furthermore Malta did not take part although a national final was being held.

For the second time "Guest Juries" were used in the contest, allowing OGAE branches from countries who held no national final for Eurovision 1994 to compete in Second Chance. The Guest Juries for the 1995 contest came from France, Netherlands, Italy, Germany,and Spain.

Sweden were the winners of the 9th edition of Second Chance, represented by singer Cecilia Vennersten with "Det vackraste ", a song composed by Peter & Nanne Grönvall with lyrics by Nanne Grönvall & Maria Rådsten. The runner-up position went to the United Kingdom's Deuce, while third place was awarded to Ireland and Naoimh Penston.
