My favorite song
Usually when I say to someone that I have a favorite song they look weird to me. Why? Because the great majority of people that I know cannot pick just one song. Oooookay … I have a favorite song but non a second or a third, not either a top 10 … these depends on the day. Not big deal, huh? ;).
What is my favorite song?
My favorite song is Paloma by Andres Calamaro. Andres Calamaro is an Argentinian singer born in 1961 and has been member of some pretty famous (at least in Spain) rock bands like “Los Abuelos“ de la nada or “Los Rodriguez”.
Why is my favorite song?
First of all was the first song that I heard by Andres Calamaro around eight years ago. Calamaro is one of my favorite singers (I don’t have just one, I have plenty).
I like the lyrics, from the first letter to the last one. Of course I love the music of the song too, from the first guitar until the end of the song.
In eight years I can’t count the times that I heard. Trust me, tons of times :P.
For me the most important reason, this song is not just a period of my life, it’s not just a person or a situation. I associate with several people (friends, family, girls, strangers), cities, places, situations, etc. across the years. So if you have been around me long enough you probably are a part of this song too :).
I’ve been twice in Calamaro’s concerts and in both he played Paloma (I just have been in two concerts because from 2000 to 2005 he didn’t make concerts). I hope to be in my third concert in September!.
And what about you? Do you have a favorite song?.
So here it’s the song and the tyrics, enjoy it!.
