"¡Qué bueno, qué bueno!" (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈke ˈβweno, ˈke ˈβweno], "How Good, How Good!") was the Spanish entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1965, performed in Spanish by Conchita Bautista.

This was Bautista's second appearance on the Eurovision stage, in the 1961 Contest she had performed Spain's very first entry, "Estando contigo", then placing 9th in a field of 16.

The song is an up-tempo flamenco-inspired number, in which Bautista describes "how good" everything feels, now that she knows that her feelings for her loved one are reciprocated and his kisses are meant for her, and her only. Bautista also recorded an Italian language version of the song under the title "Che bueno, che bueno".

The song was performed third on the night, following United Kingdom's Kathy Kirby with "I Belong" and preceding Ireland's Butch Moore with "Walking the Streets in the Rain". At the close of voting, it had received the dreaded nul points, 0 points, placing 15th (equal last) in a field of 18.

It was succeeded as Spanish representative at the 1966 Contest by Raphael with "Yo soy aquel"
