For the 1995 Eurovision Song Contest, held in Dublin for the second consecutive year, the UK entered "Love City Groove", performed by Love City Groove. It finished in 10th place with a total of 76 points.

The selection for the UK's entry took place on Friday 31 March 1995 in A Song For Europe '95, hosted, as ever, by Terry Wogan. After three years of having one act perform all the nominated songs, the UK national round for 1995 reverted to a multi-artist format which remained in place until 2010 (from 2011 onwards the BBC have internally selected performer and song).
