"Amar pelos dois" (English: Loving for both of us) is a song performed by Portuguese singer Salvador Sobral and written by his sister Luísa Sobral. The song won Festival da Canção 2017 and the Eurovision Song Contest 2017, giving Portugal its first ever win since their debut in 1964. It is the first winning song entirely performed in a country's native language since Serbia's " Molitva" in 2007, and the first winner written in triple metre since Ireland's " The Voice" in 1996. It gathered 758 points, setting the record for the most points ever achieved by a song in the contest.

Composition

"Amar pelos dois" was written and produced by Luísa Sobral, Salvador Sobral's sister. "Amar pelos dois" is a bossa-nova inspired jazz song with a length of three minutes and five seconds (3:05) that moves at a tempo of 92 beats per minute. [1] [2] [3] The song is written in triple metre. It has minimalistic instrumentation consisting of strings arrangements, done by Portuguese composer Luís Figueiredo, and piano without background vocals. Salvador Sobral stated that "Amar pelos dois" is "influenced by those old songs from the Great American Songbook, and it also has a touch of the beautiful bossa nova melodies". [4] Lyrically, the song is about a lost love and the continued attempts to get her back. [5] [6] Sobral described it as "a love song. A sad one". [4]
