Salvem el món was the Andorran entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 2007 in Helsinki performed by the group Anonymous. This was the first Andorran entry not to feature monolingual Catalan lyrics and not to be performed by a female soloist, with all the members of the band being male.

The song is a pop punk number, the first such song ever to be performed at the Contest. Lead singer "N!ki" sings about his disbelief at the state of the world, remarking that "The world is in danger and you don't do anything". He sings that this is because everyone is only interested in their own lives, and is unwilling to do anything for the greater good. Thus, he proposes that everyone unite and think about things they can do to improve the world. The chorus is delivered in English, with the band singing that humanity as a whole has treated the world badly, having in fact "turned [it] upside down". The theme of a call to action was made more explicit in the performance, with Niki calling out "Thank you! We can still save the world!" after the song was finished.

It was performed 21st in the semifinal following Malta and preceding Hungary. At the close of voting, it finished in 12th place with 80 points, missing the final. This was, however, Andorra's best result.

Lyrics

Ja no entenc per què tot el món va al revés
I no volem trobar solucions als problemes que hi han
No vulguis ser el que no ets

Sempre estàs pensant en si vius bé
I no hi ha temps per lo demés
El món en joc i no fas res

Tots estem d’acord ho podem fer
Podem unir-nos, fer-ho bé
Reflexiona tu mateix, tu mateix

(One, two, one, two, one, two, three, four)

Left, right, up and down, turned upside down
That’s how we treat the world right now
Can’t hide the fact that it’s happening

We can do our world some good
We can make a change, that’s what we should
Time will tell us, but we must act now

El problema sembla ser
Que l’interès no és el mateix
Arreglar d’un cop el món
És possible (si ho fem tots)

Tots estem d’acord ho podem fer
Podem unir-nos, fer-ho bé
Reflexiona tu mateix, tu mateix

(One, two, one, two, one, two, three, four)

Left, right, up and down, turned upside down
That’s how we treat the world right now
Can’t hide the fact that it’s happening

Left, right, up and down, turned upside down
That’s how we treat the world right now
Can’t hide the fact that it’s happening

We can do our world some good
We can make a change, that’s what we should
Time will tell us, but we must act now

Left, right, up and down, turned upside down
That’s how we treat the world right now
Can’t hide the fact that it’s happening

We can do our world some good
We can make a change, that’s what we should
Time will tell us, but we must act now

Si vols pots fer-ho, podem canviar-ho
Transforma la realitat
We still can act, but we don’t react
‘Cause we only care about what we have
About what we have

(One, two, one, two, one, two, three, four)

I can’t understand why the world is upside down
And we don’t want to find solutions to the problems
Don’t want to be what you are not

You’re always thinking whether your life is good
And there’s no time for the rest
The world is in danger and you don’t do anything

We all agree we can do it
We can unite, do it well
Think by yourself, by yourself

(One, two, one, two, one, two, three, four)

Left, right, up and down, turned upside down
That’s how we treat the world right now
Can’t hide the fact that it’s happening

We can do our world some good
We can make a change, that’s what we should
Time will tell us, but we must act now

The problem seems to be
That the interests are not the same
Fixing the world now
It’s possible (if we all do it)

We all agree we can do it
We can unite, do it well
Think by yourself, by yourself

(One, two, one, two, one, two, three, four)

Left, right, up and down, turned upside down
That’s how we treat the world right now
Can’t hide the fact that it’s happening

Left, right, up and down, turned upside down
That’s how we treat the world right now
Can’t hide the fact that it’s happening

We can do our world some good
We can make a change, that’s what we should
Time will tell us, but we must act now

Left, right, up and down, turned upside down
That’s how we treat the world right now
Can’t hide the fact that it’s happening

We can do our world some good
We can make a change, that’s what we should
Time will tell us, but we must act now

If you want, you can do it, we can change it
Transform reality
We still can act, but we don’t react
‘Cause we only care about what we have
About what we have

(One, two, one, two, one, two, three, four)
