"Santo Santo" (Saint Saint) is the first single song by Só Pra Contrariar from the album Juegos de Amor. The tune has its origins in Raffaella Carra's greatest hit "Tanti Auguri" from the 70's.

Song history[edit]

The group was enjoying a lot of success with their album and one of the reasons of the success was this song, "Santo Santo," a duet with international pop star Gloria Estefan, which took this song to the number two spot in the Spain singles chart.

The song is sung in the form of a prayer asking to a love saint to help both (Estefan and Pires), to find their true love. The song has been recorded in two languages, Spanish and Portuguese.

In the Latin Grammy Awards of 2000 this single received a nomination for Best Pop Vocal Performance by a Duo or Group, which was awarded to "Se Me Olvido Otra Vez" by Maná.
