"Quédate esta noche" (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈkeðate ˈesta ˈnotʃe], "Stay this Night") was the Spanish entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1980, performed in Spanish by Trigo Limpio.

The song is a romantic up-tempo number with influences from disco, in which the trio sings "If perhaps I made a mistake/I want to say I'm sorry". They go on to sing "Put away the keys/and put the suitcase back in its place again" and the chorus is a direct invitation to the other part; "Sleep beside me tonight/Stay beside me tonight/Love me a lot tonight/I'll be yours tonight..." Trigo Limpio also recorded the song in French, as "Viens rêver" (translated: "Come and Dream").

The song was performed 18th on the night, following Ireland's Johnny Logan with "What's Another Year" and preceding Belgium's Telex with "Euro-Vision". At the close of voting, it had received 38 points, placing 12th in a field of 19.

It was succeeded as Spanish representative at the 1981 Contest by Bacchelli with "Y sólo tú".
