Dói, Dói, Dói was introduced in early 1960 by Aracy de Almeida as a-side to Pra Que, shortly before Vera Lúcia issued the song as a-side to Leva-me Contigo. Both versions were arranged by Carlos Monteiro de Souza, and both singers included the song on their concurrent albums, with Vera Lúcia’s published a bit earlier.
A timelessly modern version was recorded by the highly talented Sandra, who was tragically killed in a car crash a few days after she received an award for her excellent debut album A Voz Balanco… Samba 35 mm. Except for the song Nuvem, arranger and tenor saxophonist Marco Ruppi aka Marko Rupe reutilized all arrangements from Sandra’s A Voz Balanço… Samba 35 mm the next year on the album Sambalanço credited as Orquestra Moderna de Sambas.
