Long Live Love was the United Kingdom entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 1974 in Brighton performed by Olivia Newton-John.

It was performed second on the night following Finland and preceding Spain. Considered a strong favorite despite the fact Olivia herself wasn't fond of the song, at the close of voting it finished in fourth place with 14 points.

Lyrics

Long, long live love
Love is to care
Caring and sharing
Long, long live love

All the kids, like ten tin soldiers
In a row follow hand in hand
Sister Anna, carrying the banner
For the Sally Annie Band
 
Singing songs of praise and glory
We all learned to love their story
Good things are comin' to ya
Glory, glory, hallelujah

Long, long live love
As long as we live
Living for giving
Long, long live love

On a wet day, dry day, great to be alive day
Brother takes the stand
Cymbals ringing, everybody singing
With the Sally Annie Band

Just a band of happy people
Teachin', preachin' love is equal
When you feel the spirit move ya
Glory, glory, hallelujah

Long, long live love
Love is to care
Caring and sharing, long
Long live love, love, love, love, love

Oh... long, long live love
As long as we live
Living for giving
Long, long live love
