My Heart Shook Inside My Soul | The Weekly Letra

One more Canastera for you to watch, María Terremoto. I can't stop listening to it, especially this coletilla she frames everything with (From Paco de Lucia's Almonte ... I love this chorus so much that I've included two other video versions following hers for you to check out.)

los almonteños
y el corazón se me estremeció en el alma

cogí la manta la eche en el suelo

Viernes con una Letra | Sol

Ok, in honor of the beautiful sun we've been seeing here in Portland this week, here's the little fandangos coletilla. I taught it to my nieces in December. They were the cutest singing it, and Margot danced to it with a fan.

Quítate de sol que te quema
quítate del sol que te pone
la carita morena

Get out of the sun that burns you
Get out of the sun
that turns your little face brown

Ricardo, by the way, loves fandangos. Here is a falseta he set for me a couple of years ago...  He'll be here in less than two weeks! Como siempre, comments are invited and welcomed.  You may leave one below.
