"I Love the Little Things" was the British entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1964, performed in English by Matt Monro. The song was written by Tony Hatch

The song was performed eighth on the night (following France's Rachel with "Le chant de Mallory" and preceding the Germany's Nora Nova with "Man gewöhnt sich so schnell an das Schöne"). At the close of voting, it had received 17 points, placing 2nd in a field of 16.

The song deals with Monro telling his lover that he loves the little things she does and says, that he is so much in love with her that he wants to stay together forever. "When you touch me and hold me And kiss me tenderly I know I'm so lucky That you came along for me"

It was succeeded as British representative at the 1965 Contest by Kathy Kirby with "I Belong".
