Bem Bom

"Bem bom" (Very good) was the Portuguese entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1982, performed in Portuguese by Doce.

The song is an up-tempo number inspired by Portuguese folk music, describing the beginning of a relationship from the perspective of a woman. They sing about how they feel at 1am, 2am, 3am, 4am, 5am, 6am, 7am and 8am as the relationship develops from the initial flirting ("a touch, a sparkle in your glance") through to "Breakfast for two" at the start of the new day.

Somewhat strikingly, the four female vocalists were dressed in musketeer outfits during their performance.

The song was performed first on the night, preceding Luxembourg's Svetlana with "Cours après le temps". At the close of voting, it had received 32 points, placing 13th in a field of 18.

It was succeeded as Portuguese representative at the 1983 Contest by Armando Gama with "Esta balada que te dou".
