"À chacun sa chanson" (English translation: "To Everyone His Song") was the Monegasque entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1968, performed in French by the duo Line & Willy. The song is a duet about the power of music itself. The duo explain that they only want to "sing about love" as it makes them - and their listeners - happier.

The song was performed seventh on the night, following Switzerland's Gianni Mascolo with "Guardando il sole" and preceding Sweden's Claes-Göran Hederström with "Det börjar verka kärlek, banne mig". At the close of voting, it had received 8 points, placing 7th in a field of 17.

It was succeeded as Monegasque representative at the 1969 Contest by Jean Jacques with "Maman, Maman".
