"Amour, Amour" ("Love, Love") was the Luxembourgish entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1987, performed in French by Belgian singer Plastic Bertrand.

This was the third occasion on which Luxembourg had been represented by an international act which had already enjoyed a level of fame - with both Nana Mouskouri and disco duo Baccara previously doing so. Plastic Bertrand had previously achieved success with "Ça plane pour moi" in 1977, a decade before the Eurovision appearance and had had a series of hits in the francophone world all through the late 1970s and early 1980s.

The new wave- and synthpop-inspired song, co-written by Plastic Bertrand himself, deals with the power of love. The singer describes himself as going into a "dungeon" for the sake of the emotion, as well as being "full of good vibrations" as a result of it. Further, love is likened to a "cowboy", with those whom it possesses being likened to "Indians". The lyric also contains a description of the singer experiencing love on "Friday the Thirteenth", with a sixteen-year-old girl. Plastic Bertrand also recorded an English-language version of the song, however retaining its original French title; "Amour, Amour".

The song was performed thirteenth on the night, following the Netherlands' Marcha with "Rechtop in de wind" and preceding the United Kingdom's Rikki with "Only the Light". At the close of voting, it had received 4 points, placing 21st in a field of 22.

It was succeeded as Luxembourgish representative at the 1988 contest by Lara Fabian with "Croire".
