"One Good Reason" was the Dutch entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1999, performed in English by Marlayne. The song is a moderately up-tempo number, with Marlayne telling her lover that they can overcome whatever obstacles life places in their path by remaining strong in their relationship. She sings that if he can give her "one good reason" to stay together, she can give him two. Significantly, this was the first occasion on which no Dutch language version of a Dutch Eurovision entry was recorded. It was succeeded as Dutch representative at the 2000 contest by Linda with "No Goodbyes".
