Os Amigos Portugal No Coração
"Portugal no coração" ("Portugal in my heart") was the Portuguese entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1977, performed in Portuguese by Os Amigos.
The song is a ballad in praise of Portugal itself. The song is about freedom, brotherhood and hope. Many of the verses of the lyrics are acclamations of the end of the dictatorship that lasted for 48 years, and the end of the wars that the Portuguese people had been forced to fight on the African colonies by that dictatorship. It's also a love hymn from Portuguese people to their ex-colonies people, whom they had fought.
