◄ "Sou fräi" (1992)   

"Donne-moi une chance" (English translation: "Give me a chance") was the Luxembourgish entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1993, performed in French and Luxembourgish by the duo Modern Times. The song was the third ever Luxembourgish entry to feature lyrics in the Luxembourgish language, in this case however only partly.

The song is an up-tempo, rock-influenced number, with the vocalists pleading with each other to "Give me a chance to tell you" about how they feel while on a romantic date. Modern Times also recorded the song in English, as "Heaven Only Knows".

The song was performed fifteenth on the night (following Ireland's Niamh Kavanagh with "In Your Eyes" and preceding Slovenia's 1X Band with "Tih deževen dan"). At the close of voting, it had received 11 points, placing 20th in a field of 25.

The song remains the last Luxembourgish representative at the Eurovision Song Contest, as after the 1993 Contest Luxembourg opted to stop competing.
