"O meu coraÃ§Ã£o nÃ£o tem cor"
("My heart has no colour") is a song recorded by Portuguese singer LÃºcia Moniz. The song was written by Pedro OsÃ³rio and JosÃ© Fanha. It is best known as the Portuguese entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 1996, held in Oslo.
The song is a moderately up-tempo number. Moniz sings in praise of the Portuguese language and Lusophone culture in general, describing the result of the former Portuguese Empire as a "tricontinental party" in which "What's far away is still close in songs". Such a theme is common in Portuguese entries, for example the country's 1995 entry.
Moniz names the various dances and musical styles throughout the Lusophone community, singing that "We dance the samba, the marrabenta too/We weep the fado and roll the coladeira" among others. Mention is also made of the variety of foods found throughout the community, with fig, papaya and guarana all being things which the "lips" of Moniz' listeners have a "rowdy craving" for.
The song was performed fourth on the night, following Spain's Antonio Carbonell with "Â¡Ay, quÃ© deseo!" and preceding Cyprus' Constantinos with "Mono Yia Mas". At the close of voting, it had received 92 points, placing 6th in a field of 23, Portugal's best Contest result until their win in 2017.
It was succeeded as Portuguese entry at the 1997 contest by CÃ©lia Lawson with "Antes do adeus", which recorded Portugal's worst result since the Carnation Revolution.
Moniz herself would go on to a career as an actress after a successful musical career in her home country. While most of her success was achieved in Portugal, she appeared as AurÃ©lia in Love Actually
