Music, lyrics and versions

Written and composed by Daniel Balavoine, the song deals with various situations of war and misery in the Third World (at that time, the famine ravaged the Ethiopia and there were some conflicts as the war in Iran / Iraq) and the music video shows certain of these situations. The verses use the same form of words to rhyme, but each verse has "its own identity through its musical color". "The first [verse] is smooth, in contrast with the second one in which percussion are very marked".[2]

The song is also available on Balavoine's posthumous greatest hits compilations Sans frontières (2005) on which it appears also in a remixed version, and Les 50 plus belles chansons (2008).

Charts performances and covers

In France, the single went to #16 on 16 April 1986 on the SNEP chart, and reached number five seven weeks later. It totaled 18 weeks.[3] With about 360,000 units sold, the song is currently the 941st best-selling single of all time.[4]

"Sauver l'amour" was covered in 2005 by Star Academy 5 (France) on its album Chante Daniel Balavoine.[5] and also by Valérie Dall'Anese. Some members of Les Enfoirés performed the song which was included in their 1997 album Le Zénith des Enfoirés.[6]
