Maria was a contender to represent the UK at the 1976 Eurovision Song Contest but was eventually placed 7th at the 'A Song For Europe' national selection show held on February 25th at the Royal Albert Hall in London, hosted by Michael Aspel and broadcast live on BBC1. The winning song, Save Your Kisses For Me by Brotherhood Of Man was chosen by the votes of 14 regional juries.

Two alternative versions of Maria were issued on 6003 525, a German release completely different to the UK release, with a German language version and a disco instrumental version.

Release date from booklet 'The New Singles' No. 613.

 Confusingly, it seems that there were two different Sunshines who recorded for State and had a pop at Eurovision. This one featured Rod McQueen, who co-composed "Beautiful Sunday" for Daniel Boone. The other one was the Irish version.
