Por Apellido Rosa | The Weekly Letra

I first heard today’s letra sung by Camarón. I would go back on the recording and listen to this particular letra over and over and over again. Those words! And the way he sang the last two lines especially always got me, and still gets me. (Below you can see a video of him singing it live and another of Pepe de Lucia singing for Pepita Ibarz.)

Whoa | Viernes con una Letra

Below is the verse.

Followed by a video - possibly my favorite sevillanas ever - of Camarón singing it, with Tomatito and Joaquín Amador on guitar and Manuela Carrasco dancing.

Sevillanas 
Isidro Muñoz

Pa qué me llamas prima, 
si me crucifica que te mire,
si me crucifica tu mirada

Si cuando me tienes te retienes  
y eres como el vuelo de tu enagua

pa qué me llamas?

Viernes con una Letra | and more alegrías

Today another letra that Vicente sang. Something happened while he sang me this letra, something that had the potential to really throw me off.  But it actually didn't.  It was weird.  It was like I noticed it happening and kind of watched myself continue dancing.  I guess it kind of caused me to become more focused, in a sense.  I want to tell you about it some day...

But, hoy es viernes.  So we have a letra.  And you can listen to it here, sung by a coro with Tomatito playing guitar.  It's Cañailla, from his Barrio Negro album.

Alegrías
Popular

Anda y ven
Replicale al orgulloso amor
Anda y ven
Dile porque llora mi corazón
Si solo intento vivir con mi triste alegría
haciendo que la luna también encaje cada día
Por eso quiero que salga el sol.
Sueño con tus besos,
tú y siempre tú.
