Una paloma blanca, I'm just a bird in the sky....

Una paloma blanca, over the mountains I fly.
No one can take my freedom away.

Ahh, the '70s! :eyes:

2. The George Baker Selection, 1975.
Ya gotta say this for the '70s: the music was diverse as hell!

3. AM Radio...
You could hear everything on AM Top 40 radio; stations like CHUM, KHJ, WIXY, CKLW etc are heads and shoulders over what passes for radio now..

4. Giuro che ... Vado Via
One of these days, I'm going to actually interest one of you Philistines in non-English-language music :)

--p!

Vado Via
(E.Riccardi - L.Albertelli, 1973)

Vado,
Questa volta ho deciso che vado,
Ma perch non me l'hai detto tu,
Di non poterne pi

Dentro
A quel mezzo sorriso un po' spento
Ho scoperto i difetti che hai
Ma come avr potuto amarti mai?
Giuro che ...

Vado via,
Casa tua
Pi non c'
E' meglio se ...

Io
Ti lascio,
Adesso
Che posso,
Ti lascio
Non son pi quel ragazzo che sai,
Ma non avr
Ripensamenti mai ...
Giuro che ...

Vado via ...
Casa tua
Pi non c' ...
E' meglio se ...

Tremo,
Sul confine di un mondo sereno
Il mio viaggio finisce con te,
Ma come avr potuto amare te?
Giuro che ...

Vado via ...
Casa tua
Pi non c'
E' meglio se ...

Io
Ti lascio,
Adesso
Che posso
Ti lascio
Adesso
Che posso
Ti lascio,
Ti lascio
Adesso
Che posso ti lascio

6. I'll see your La Bamba and raise you a Yin-Yang
It's about two years old, so if you're in radio, you might have heard it. The name of the band, Jarabe De Palo, is idiomatic and it seems to literally mean "Picket-Fence Syrup".

Then again, even though it's in Spanish, it's not Salsa. More like northern Spanish folk-punk rock.

--p!
Yo soy no Ricky Martin ...


Yin-Yang
(Jarabe De Palo)

Yin-Yang
menos es ms
polos opuestos que nunca se juntan

Yin-Yang
vienen y van
lneas paralelas que nunca se cruzan

bien mal
madera o metal
puntos de vista que no se preguntan

tal cul
azcar o sal
los que se oyen pero no se escuchan

Yin-Yang
eva y adn
desequilibrio por una manzana

Yin-Yang
bastos o espadas
palos opuestos en una baraja

Yin-Yang
salir o entrar
de un laberinto lleno de puertas

Yin-Yang
delante o detrs
los que se buscan pero no se encuentran

cmo vas cmo lo ves
si tu veleta y la ma sealan rumbos distintos
cmo vas cmo lo ves
si tu maleta y la ma viajan en vuelos distintos

(BIS)

cmo vas cmo lo ves
si tu receta y la ma tienen sabores distintos
cmo vas cmo lo ves
si tu cabeza y la ma viven paisajes distintos

7. Eres T
Here's what I was looking for before Yin-Yang distracted me -- Eres T by Mocedades (Juan Caldern and band), and a hit at that (1973-1974 in Europe, then the USA).

The English version, "Touch the Wind", as usual, was a flop. For once the lyrics didn't suck, but lacked the poetry of sound of the original. The literal translation of the phrase Eres T is "It's You".

--p!


Eres T
(Letra y msica de Juan Carlos Caldern)

Como una promesa, eres t, eres t.
Como una maana de verano.
Como una sonrisa, eres t, eres t.
As, as, eres t.

Toda mi esperanza, eres t, eres t.
Como lluvia fresca en mis manos
como fuerte brisa, eres t, eres t.
As, as, eres t.

Eres t como el agua de mi fuente (algo as eres t)
Eres t el fuego de mi hogar
Eres t como el fuego de mi hoguera
Eres t el trigo de mi pan.

Como mi poema, eres t, eres t.
Como una guitarra en la noche,
todo mi horizonte eres t, eres t.
As, as, eres t.

Eres t como el agua de mi fuente (algo as eres t)
Eres t el fuego de mi hogar
Eres t como el fuego de mi hoguera
Eres t el trigo de mi pan.
Eres t...
