Today, to wrap up love month, a song that falls on the tragic side of love.
This one was on a compilation CD I purchased soon after returning from Spain the first time. I would listen to it over and over again.
Following the words you'll find a collection of videos one of which is Pepe de Lucía and his daughter Malú singing it live, another from the Spanish version of The Voice, one of a little boy who will blow you away, one with some very cool dancing, and one from La Macanita.
Sueño De Amor (Al Alba)
Pepe de Lucía
Te marchaste al alba
Llenaste mi cuerpo con el fuego de tu amor
Y te fuiste al alba
Y al alba, y al alba
Last week we were remembering Paco de Lucía. Today let's remember Camarón with this video.
Chorus from Como el Agua by Pepe de Lucía
Como el agua clara
que baja del monte,
asi quiero verte
de día y de noche
Like clear water
that flows from the hills,
I want to see you
day and night
You can listen to the original recording here.
And below is a live television performance. It's queued up to where the song begins, but if you speak Spanish you might enjoy the video that precedes it.
