Bem bom - Doce

The female quartet Doce, consisting of Laura Diogo, Lena Coelho, Fátima Padinha and Teresa Miguel, represented Portugal during the 1982 Eurovision Song Contest with the catchy pop song 'Bem bom' ('Very good'). During their performance, the four women were dressed in musketeer outfits.

They finished 13th in a field of 18 competitors. The single was released in several European countries, but failed to chart outside of Portugal.

For the love of Conchita - Doce

The Portuguese girl group Doce was formed in 1980 by Laura Diogo, Lena Coelho, Fátima Padinha, and Teresa Miguel. They participated in the Portuguese national final for the Eurovision Song Contest in 1980, but finished second. In 1981 they tried again, with the song 'Ali-Bábá, um homem das Arábias', which finished fourth. Their third try in 1982 was successful: the song 'Bem bom' brought them to Harrowgate to participate in that year's Contest.

After this song was released as a single, they followed it up with 'For the love of Conchita'. It didn't chart in most countries, except for Portugal. I bought the single while buying a stack of singles in my favourite shop round the corner, just out of curiosity.
