"Here Today Gone Tomorrow" was the Irish entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1982, performed in English by the Welsh family quartet The Duskeys. Performing the song were sisters Sandy Kelly and Barbara Ellis, and their cousins Nina Duskey and Dan Duskey.
The song is an up-tempo number in which both male and female singers castigate their lovers for being unfaithful (in the case of the first verse, the gender is unclear, however it is implied to be female). The lover is told "Baby, love me all of the time/Or I don't really wanna know".
The song was performed seventeenth on the night, following the Netherlands' Bill van Dijk with "Jij en ik" and preceding Germany's Nicole with "Ein bißchen Frieden". At the close of voting, it had received 49 points, placing 11th in a field of 18.
Dan Duskey later fronted the group Palace who finished 5th in the 1986 A Song For Europe contest in the UK with the song Dancing With You Again.
