You Can Count On Me was the Irish entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1986, performed in English by Luv Bug.

The song is an up-tempo number, with the singer recounting a relationship she hopes might begin again. It appears that her lover had made the promise "You can count on me" before ending the relationship, so the singer suggests that by living up to these words, the world might become a happier place.

The song was performed twelfth on the night (following Israel's Moti Giladi & Sarai Tzuriel with Yavo Yom and preceding Belgium's Sandra Kim with J'Aime La Vie). At the close of voting, it had received 96 points, placing 4th in a field of 20. It was succeeded as Irish representative at the 1987 Contest by Johnny Logan with Hold Me Now.
