Default Historia de un Amor

Barack Obama released his list of favourite books, movies and songs for 2018. On his list was this version of “Historia de un Amor”, a bolero written in 1955 by Panamanian Carlos Eleta Almarán for his brother, after his brother’s wife died.


Many artists have interpreted this song over the years. Here’s a version by Mexican singer, Guadalupe Pineda:

Ya no estás mas a mi lado corazón
En el alma sólo tengo soledad
Y si ya no puedo verte
Por qué Dios me hizo quererte
Para hacerme sufrir mas

Siempre fuiste la razón de mi existir
Adorarte para mi fue religión
En tus besos yo encontraba
El calor que me brindaba
El amor y la pasión

Es la historia de un amor
Como no hay otro igual
Que me hizo comprender
Todo el bien, todo el mal
Que le dio luz a mi vida
Apagándola después
Hay que vida tan obscura
Sin tu amor no viviré

Siempre fuiste la razón de mi existir
Adorarte para mi fue religión
En tus besos yo encontraba
El calor que me brindaba
El amor y la pasión

Es la historia de un amor
Como no hay otro igual
Que me hizo comprender
Todo el bien, todo el mal
Que le dio luz a mi vida
Apagándola después
Hay que vida tan obscura
Sin tu amor no viviré
Siempre fuiste la razón de mi existir
Adorarte para mi fue religión
En tus besos yo encontraba
El calor que me brindaba
El amor y la pasión

Default ¡Hoy es domingo!

I love, love, love this song by Argentine musician Diego Torres, with well-known Panamanian singer-songwriter Ruben Blades about the joys of Sunday!


Here are the words in Spanish, with English translation below. As is usually the case, it sounds better in Spanish...

Como me gusta estar de nuevo en casa
Y despertarme lleno de su olor
A ese café de la mañana
Que siempre corre hasta la cama
Y duerme hasta el despertador

Hoy tengo cita con la almohada
Y una reunión con el ventilador
Una salida con mi perro
Por que no entiende de pretexto
Y dejo en pausa mi sillón

Hoy, hoy es domingo
No hay compromisos con el reloj
Porque hoy, hoy es domingo
No hay nada mejor

Te saco un vino en la cocina
Y un buen asado espera en el carbón
Aunque tengamos mil problemas
Hoy descansamos de las penas
Alimentando el corazón
Que nadie rompa este momento
Es día de celebración
Hay que brindar por la alegría
Afuera la mala energía
Por que mañana lunes se acabo

Hoy, hoy es domingo
No hay compromiso con el reloj
Porque hoy, hoy es domingo
No hay nada mejor
Hoy, hoy es domingo
No hay compromiso con el reloj
Porque hoy, hoy es domingo
No hay nada mejor

Hoy es domingo y no es bueno pa’ trabajar
Hoy es domingo, el día para disfrutar
Mañana es un día de fiesta, no me lo discuta usted
Que yo tengo el almanaque, en español y en ingles

Hoy es domingo y no es bueno para trabajar
Hoy es domingo, el día para disfrutar

Pero que mira que cuando se encuentran
Dos latinos siempre da igual
Que lunes, que martes, que miércoles
Que siempre domingo será
Hoy es domingo y no es bueno para trabajar
Hoy es domingo, el día para disfrutar
El domingo se va a misa, para lo del espiritual
Se reúne la familia y amigos, a celebrar


How I like to be home again
And wake up full of its smell
Of morning coffee
Wafting to the bed
And sleep until the alarm goes off
Today I have an appointment with the pillow
And a meeting with the fan
An outing with my dog
Because he does not understand excuses
So I put my armchair on pause

Today, today is Sunday
There is no commitment to the clock
Because today, today is Sunday
There is nothing better

I'll give you some wine in the kitchen
And a good barbecue is waiting on the coals
Although we have a thousand problems
Today we rest from our worries
Nourishing the heart
Let no one interrupt this moment

It's a day of celebration
Let’s give a toast to happiness
Let go of bad energy
Because tomorrow Monday it’s over

Today, today is Sunday
There is no commitment to the clock
Because today, today is Sunday
There is nothing better

Today is Sunday and it is not for working
Today is Sunday, the day to enjoy
Tomorrow is a holiday, do not argue with me
Because I have a calendar, in Spanish and in English
Today is Sunday and it is not for working
Today is Sunday, the day to enjoy

But when two Latinos meet
It doesn’t matter if it’s Monday or Tuesday or Wednesday
It will always be Sunday

Today is Sunday and it is not for working
Today is Sunday, the day to enjoy

On Sunday you go to church, to look after the spiritual
You get together with family and friends, to celebrate

In honor of the “Fiestas Patrias” being celebrated currently in Mexico, here is some música muy mexicana. Guadalupe Pineda is one of my favourite singers. (I have quite a few “favourites”.) What I hadn’t realized previously is that she and singer Pepe Aguilar are first cousins. I love the music, the outfits, the energy.

Default Angela Aguilar “La Llorona”

Now that we’re in October, with Día de Muertos a few weeks away, here is an interpretation of the Mexican classic folksong “La Llorona”, as sung by an up and coming Mexican singer, Angela Aguilar. Her father is well known singer Pepe Aguilar, who is the son of Mexican singers/actors Antonio Aguilar and Flor Silvestre. A musical family dynasty. Angela is just 16 years, but already has a great voice and stage presence. The imagery in this video is also beautiful.
