|"Falter im Wind"|
|Eurovision Song Contest 1972 entry|
Richard Schönherz, Manuel Rigoni
|◄ "Musik" (1971)|
|"My Little World" (1976) ►|
The song was performed eleventh on the night (following Finland's Päivi Paunu and Kim Floor with "Muistathan" and preceding Italy's Nicola Di Bari with "I giorni dell'arcobaleno"). At the close of voting, it had received 100 points, placing it fifth in a field of 18 songs.
The song is a folk-influenced number, directed at the titular butterfly and dealing with the impermanence of life.
Due to disagreements over the voting structure, Austria did not enter the Contest from 1973 to 1975. The song was thus succeeded as Austrian representative in the 1976 Contest by Waterloo & Robinson, performing "My Little World".
