"Amours mortes (tant de peine)" (English translation: "Dead love (so much sadness)") was the Luxembourgish entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1957, performed in French by French singer Danièle Dupré.

The song is in the chanson style, with Dupré asking a former lover how she is meant to forget him and the pain his leaving caused her.

The song was performed second on the night (following Belgium's Bobbejaan Schoepen with "Straatdeuntje" and preceding the United Kingdom's Patricia Bredin with "All"). At the close of voting, it had received 8 points, placing 4th in a field of 10.

It was succeeded as Luxembourgish representative at the 1958 Contest by Solange Berry with "Un grand amour".
