"Marie-Blanche" was the French entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1970, performed in French by Guy Bonnet. Bonnet had made his debut in the Contest in 1968, when he co-wrote the lyrics to Isabelle Aubret's "La source".
The song was performed sixth on the night (following Belgium's Jean Vallée with "Viens l'oublier" and preceding the United Kingdom's Mary Hopkin with "Knock, Knock Who's There?"). At the close of voting, it had received 8 points, placing 4th in a field of 12.
The song is a ballad, with Bonnet singing about the wonder of the world when the titular character (his lover) is with him. Bonnet also recorded the song in Italian under the same title, "Marie-Blanche".
