"Chansons pour ceux qui s'aiment" (English translation: "Songs For Those Who Love Each Other") was the Luxembourgish entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1976, performed in French by German schlager singer Jürgen Marcus.
The song is a ballad, with Marcus singing about the power of love songs to remain in the memories of those who hear them regardless of the other events in the world. Marcus also recorded the song in his native German under the title "Der Tingler singt für euch alle".
The song was performed fifth on the night, following Israel's Chocolate, Menta, Mastik with "Emor Shalom" and preceding Belgium's Pierre Rapsat with "Judy et Cie". At the close of voting, it had received 17 points, placing 14th in a field of 18.
