In 2000 – Music

I used to have a tab for music but I think it is not of easy access, so I decided to add my music posts as regular ones.

You will see them once in a while, mainly pop-rock Latin music, mainly mexican.

Natalia Lafourcade – Mexican

AllMusic.com

Review by Phil Freeman

Perky singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Natalia Lafourcade came out of nowhere in 2003 with this chirpy yet surprisingly self-assured debut. Primarily produced by Loris Ceroni, who’d also worked with the substantially harder-rocking Alejandra Guzmán, the album nevertheless reflects Lafourcade’s sensibility throughout. Songs combine acoustic guitar and a strong bossa nova influence with dashes of turntable, electronic beats, and textural sound effects like vinyl crackle.

Human

This is a new recording from my daughter Miranda. It’s a cover from Christina Perri.

I can’t say much because for obvious reasons… The music is played by one of his friends.

I hope you like it, you won’t get disappointed.




With One More Look at You

Had to choose between image or sound quality. I chose poorly since the sound video was much better, but with this one, one can see all the intention and passion.

I can’t say I know word by word of this track, though I do. A Star is Born, a film from 1976. For some strange reason I now all the songs and lyrics. I wouldn’t promise you a great picture, but I would recommend it if available still.

 

….I will solve the mystery, if you are the prize…

Refresh this tired eyes, with one more look at you…

I might overcome the anger that I have learn to know

Find my peace of mind I’ve lost so long ago

Your gentle touch has made me strong again…

And I belong again

For when you look at me, I’m everything and more that I had dreamed I’d be….

 

 

Everything: I don’t want much I just want more…

Reflection – Song

My daughter had this great desire to do dubbing for Disney’s TV programs, from English to Spanish. She really never gave up thinking she would find the way to do it.

I always think nothing is imposible, but thought this might be not that easy since she is only 13 years old. Good things come with one’s hard work. That is the lesson she taught me and I know is not the only lesson I will learn from her.

Here is the recording for her casting (in Spanish, and of course worth listening to), and she chose: Reflection, a song that plays in a film named Mulan. The photograph at the very bottom, is she in the studio.

Song:

The lyrics really show my daughter’s character. Yes, she got in.

Look at me,
I will never pass for a perfect bride,
or a perfect daughter,
can it be,
I’m not meant to play this part,
Now I see,
that if I were truly to be myself,
I would break my family’s heart
Who is that girl I see,
staring straight,
back at me,
why is my reflection someone I don’t know,
somehow I cannot hide,
who i am,
though i’ve tried,
When will my reflection show,
who I am inside,

when will my reflection show,
who I am inside

Reflection - Mulan
