"Sehnsucht" ("Longing") was the Austrian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1961, performed in German by Jimmy Makulis.
The song was performed third on the night, following Monaco's Colette Deréal with "Allons, allons les enfants" and preceding Finland's Laila Kinnunen with "Valoa ikkunassa". At the close of voting, it had received one point, placing it 15th in a field of 16 (joint last place with Belgium's "September, gouden roos", performed by Bob Benny).
The song is in the chanson style and features Makulis singing about the joy which will be around him when "you" (a former lover) return to him.
The song was succeeded as Austrian representative in the 1962 Contest by Eleonore Schwarz singing "Nur in der wiener Luft".
