Nowbody calls me Ignacio. I’m plunchete, man!

My favorite song

Posted in About Me, life, music by plunchete on May 13, 2010

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😛.

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!.

Andrés Calamaro – Paloma 1999

Mi vida fuimos a volar
con un solo paracaídas
uno sólo va a quedar
volando a la deriva
Vivir así no es vivir
esperando y esperando
porque vivir es jugar
y yo quiero seguir jugando
Le dije a mi corazón
sin gloria pero sin pena
no cometas el crimen, varón
si no vas a cumplir la condena
Quiero vivir dos veces
para poder olvidarte
quiero llevarte conmigo
y no voy a ninguna parte
No te preocupes, Paloma
hoy no estoy adentro mío
tu amor es mi enfermedad
soy un envase vacío
No te preocupes Paloma
no hay pájaros en el nido
dos ilusiones se irán a volar
pero otras dos han venido
Si me olvido de vivir
colgado de sentimientos
voy a vivir para repetir otra vez
este momento
Te bajaría del cielo, mujer
la luna hasta tu cama
porque es muy poco de amor
sólo una vez por semana
Puse precio a mi libertad
y nadie quiso pagarlo
te cambio tu corazón por el mío
para mirarlo y mirarlo
Ampas de gloria, mujer
quiero un pedazo de cielo
para invitarte a dormir
en la cama o en el suelo
un sacrificio ritual bien o mal
yo quiero hacerle a mi estrella
sin principio ni final
no quiero vivir sin ella
Quiero vivir dos veces
para poder olvidarte
quiero llevarte conmigo
y no voy a ninguna parte
No te preocupes, Paloma
hoy no estoy adentro mío
tu amor es mi enfermedad
soy un envase vacío
No te preocupes Paloma
no hay pájaros en el nido
dos ilusiones se irán a volar
pero otras dos han venido
