I’ve tried to write
A million other songs but
Somehow I can’t move on, oh you’re gone

Takes time, alright
And I know it’s no one’s fault but
Somehow I can’t move on, oh you’re gone

Saudade
Saudade
Nothing more that I can say
Says it in a better way

Saudade
Saudade
Nothing more that I can say
Says it in a better way

Tem tanto que trago comigo
Foi sempre o meu porto de abrigo
E agora nada faz sentido
Perdi o meu melhor amigo

E se não for demais
Peço por sinais
Resta uma só palavra

Saudade
Saudade
Nothing more that I can say
Says it in a better way

Saudade
Saudade
Nothing more that I can say
Says it in a better way

Nothing more that I can say
Says it in a better way

I’ve tried, alright
But it’s killing me inside
Thought you’d be by my side always

Great we share the same favourite.

I think that Aurea is the most famous one? She has also won the MTV Europe - Best Portuguese Act twice and her singles and albums are very successful (like almost hitting #1 in Portugal most of the time).

Not sure about her fanbase, though (if they really pick up the phone to vote for her) or if other acts have become more social media-friendly and so on...
Aurea as the biggest fan base of this year's contest and is a long time favorite by the portuguese eurobubble to represent the country.
Sadly I don't think she has the best song in this year's competition, the lyrics are a bit basic and in english, if they were basic in portuguese it could be forgiven as people in europe will not understand her, but that's not the case.

A very good selection for FdC. I like the fact that little by little it is getting more and more modern. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Pongo & Tristany, with a good staging they can absolutely bring a GREAT result. I LOVEEEEE IIIIIIIIIT. DYING !!
I also like Syro, The Mister Driver and Norton. I would be happy if anyone of these won.

But it better be Pongo & Tristany ❤️❤️

I think she has by far the worst song lol like.

F***** bad slam poetry to a minimal instrumentation for 2 and a half minutes and only THEN does it become a proper song? and even then it's her screaming WHYs all over the damn place. It's a musical mess, and frankly calling it "music" is a stretch when the "instrumentation" is a handler tapping the same piano key over and over again.

I totally expect her to win because you know, the Portuguese taste is the total opposite of mine (cf to last year, where the top three were all in my bottom four lol xheartand every act i liked in semi 1 that wasn't a pre-show contender was IMMEDIATELY booted) but at least i'll have fun ripping into her when judgment day comes.

speaking of bad music, holy fuck i'm OBSESSED with Inês. WHAT IN THE SUPERCALIFRANGILISTICEXPALIDICIOUS IS THIS??? It's Passe-Partout on bleeping ROIDS, swerving into language changes so abrupt and nonsensical it gives me a whiplash. She rhymes "Baku" (in Portugese) with "menu" (in English)??? What IS this? I want to see this live, like... tonight to know whether i can stan it properly or not!

Last year the portuguese judges gave a 12 to Bulgaria and Aurea falls into that kind of indie ballad, with the biggest fanbase of the competition it will be easy for her to win the contest.
The only way that it don't happen is if Syro beats her, that is also a indie ballad and he has a big fanbase, but me, personally, would rather see Portugal not send a ballad and trying something new like Pongo and Tristany, but Pongo and Tristany is the type of song that can fall flat with the wrong staging and the Conan Osiris vibes that it gives me can be a bad omen.

After a quick first round, I'm happy with this selection. I liked a handful of songs, though I'm pretty sure it's going to be Syro vs Aurea. (I prefer Maro and Jonas...)

But the one that made me instantly happy and that I played more than once was Pongo e Tristany. Such a joy!

If I'm been fair, this NF isn't bad. But maaaaaaaan they should get more variety. IDK why, IDK if it's actually real or maybe just the impression I get but portugal's NF always seem to have more ballads than most NF's. They can be good but it's really hard to listening them all in one sit because by the end, a lot of them sound really same-y.
