"Why Me?" was the winner of the Eurovision Song Contest 1992, performed for Ireland by Linda Martin.

The result was also notable as the song was composed by Johnny Logan, who had previously won the Contest with "What's Another Year?" and the self-composed "Hold Me Now". Logan is, to date, the only person to win the Contest with a song composed for him, win the Contest with his own song and then compose another winner.

The song is a ballad, building in intensity towards the end. The singer describes her thoughts about her lover and asks why she is the lucky one to have his love, as against anyone else.

The song was performed seventeenth on the night, following the United Kingdom's Michael Ball with One Step Out of Time and preceding Denmark's Kenny Lübcke [da] & Lotte Nilsson [da] with "Alt det som ingen ser". At the close of voting, it had received 155 points, placing 1st in a field of 23.

The song was succeeded in 1993 as winner by Niamh Kavanagh, also representing Ireland, with "In Your Eyes".

Logan covered the song on his 2001 album, Reach for Me.
