No mujer, no llorar por Bob Marley
Lyrics: Good friends we've had, Good friends we've lost along the way
Buenos amigos que hemos tenido, buenos amigos hemos perdido en el camino
Rompecabezas by Aterciopelados
Y es que fueron, fueron tus abrazos que como sablazos me hicieron pedazos afiladas fueron tus miradas quedé destrozada y en llanto inundada. Roja y loca, la flama de tu boca me quemó, y apagarme me toca.
Your hugs Like sword slashes dismembered me Your looks where sharp I was left destroyed and flooded in tears red and crazy the flame from your mouth burned me and I must put it down
Tu llenas mis sentidos... como una noche en un bosque
Como las montañas en primavera...como un paseo en la lluvia
Como una tormenta en el desierto... como un océano soñoliento azul
Tu llenas mis sentidos... vuelva a llenarme de nuevo
You fill up my senses... like a night in a forest
Like the mountains in springtime... like a walk in the rain
Like a storm in the desert... like a sleepy blue ocean
You fill up my senses... come fill me again
Guess the song and the artist.
Lay Lady Lay (across my big brass bed) Bob Dylon.
Stay Lady Stay (while the night is still ahead)
Thanks to Marianne we got the words in Portuguese. First time I have ever been able to "connect" to that language - sounds great.
I don't really have a favorite song or whatever, I have more like a favorite of the day that i put on repeat a lot, and this happens to be it:
La claridad me dice ya voy, la sombra me mato mi voz, sin ella estoy muda, se enfria, se enfria, se enfria el calor...
I like the flow of the song. Thanks jeezzle, c'mon nobody listens to music here? I know we can come up with more than this!! Any song or genre is acceptable.

'New York Nagaram' is one of my favourite song from the movie 'Jillunu oru kadhal'. Its about a man on how he miss his wife so badly while he was in new york for some official work. This song is sung and composed by A.R.Rahman.
These are my favourite lines
My pen wrote your name 100 times in my daily planner
Just as I wrote, ants came from all over, even your name turn into honey?
Even in this chill weather why is this winter season like hot summer to me?
Oh beloved, come to me.. if you are here even a burning charcoal will become a snowball !
Here's another of my very favorites:
Al Otro Lado Del Rio by Jorge Drexler
- Clavo mi remo en el agua
- Llevo tu remo en el mío
- Creo que he visto una luz al otro lado del río
I dig my oar in the water...I hold your oar in mine...I think I have seen a light on the other side of the river....

Esta luz nunca se apagará by the Smiths, covered by Mikel Erentxun here in Spanish link text There is a light that never goes out
Mikel already translated it though, and he took quite a few liberties I must say!
You Tube site above is an all time favorite of Stairway to Heavenspanish guitar style.
I do not know if there is a spanish translation of the words. link text
Well, this is not may favorite song of all time, but it has particular meaning for our family.
The song is Burn, Baby Burn (Disco Inferno) made famous by the Trammps in the movie "Saturday Night Fever". My brother-in-law plays the bass guitar. He along with a close family friend, have toured with the Trammps from the 1980's until the present day. We just saw them in concert in Atlantic City recently.
From the third verse:
Up above my head, I hear music everywhere...
Por encima mi cabeza oigo música en el aire -
