"Samba de uma Nota Só" ("One-Note Samba") is a bossa nova song composed by Antônio Carlos Jobim with Portuguese lyrics by Newton Mendonça.
Mendonça went on to co-compose music and lyrics for Desafinado, Meditação, and Samba de uma nota só.
It was first recorded by João Gilberto in 1960 for his album O Amor, o Sorriso e a Flor.
Richard S. Ginell, writing in AllMusic, says, "This vitally important record introduced João Gilberto, Antonio Carlos Jobim and thus, bossa nova to the United States in 1961, a year before Stan Getz scored a hit with "Desafinado.... Several Jobim standards-in-waiting -- "One Note Samba," "Corcovado," "Meditation," "Outra Vez" -- were heard for the first time in North America on this LP."

Rogério Skylab parodied the song as "Samba de uma Nota Só ao Contrário" on his 2009 live album Skylab IX.
The album includes guest appearances by Löis Lancaster of Zumbi do Mato (who previously collaborated with Skylab on Skylab II), Maurício Pereira of Os Mulheres Negras (with whom Skylab wrote "O Mundo Tá Sempre Girando", off his 2007 release Skylab VII) and Marcelo Birck of Graforreia Xilarmônica (who co-wrote the previously unreleased track "Samba de uma Nota Só ao Contrário", whose title parodies Tom Jobim's 1963 hit "Samba de uma Nota Só").
