Draw Position 10, Final Position 3, Points (Final) 20

"La source" ("The Spring") was the French entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1968, performed in French by Isabelle Aubret. This was Aubret's second appearance on the Eurovision stage, in 1962 she had won the Contest with "Un premier amour". In turn, one of the lyricists of "La source", Guy Bonnet, would return to the Contest as an artist in 1970 and 1983, singing "Marie-Blanche" and "Vivre" respectively.

The song deals - unusually for songs at the time, especially in the Contest - with the topic of rape, with Aubret describing such an event in some detail. Aubret also recorded the song in German, then under the title "Such' mich dort, wo die Sonne scheint".

 At the close of voting, it had received 20 points, placing 3rd in a field of 17.
