Tell me, my love… (Dime, mi amor)

Spanish version


Al compás dormilón de nuestro tango,
con mi brazo ciñiendo tu cintura,
murmurando mil frases de cariño,
entreviendo mil cielos de ventura.
Yo quisiera saber si hay en tu pecho,
todavía, esperanza para mí,
si la ausencia y la distancia no han borrado
el amor que yo en tus ojos entreví.

Dime mi amor,
dime mi amor
si aún me quieres;
si la ausencia no mató tu querer,
si hoy, como ayer,
puedo creer…
Dime mi amor,
dime mi amor
si aún prefieres
mi corazón
que hoy para ti
pongo en mi triste canción.

Al compás dormilón de nuestro tango,
con mi brazo ciñiendo tu cintura,
murmurando mil frases de cariño,
entreviendo mil cielos de ventura.
Yo quisiera saber si hay en tu pecho
todavía esperanza para mí,
si la ausencia y la distancia no han borrado
el amor que yo en tus ojos entreví.

hector maure

I am not afraid to admit that I have a weakness for Hector Mauré. Whenever, for a heretical reason, I haven’t been able to listen to tango for a few days, the first gentle reminder is a subtle, involuntary repetition, inside my brain, of the words ”Allá, junto a la ribera, un tano feliz vivía….”.

Hector Mauré was the singer who, perhaps, forced Juan D’Arienzo to adapt to a more lyrical style during a few years. The song that you are about to hear is still relatively up-beat compared to other Mauré songs, but still much more sensitive than your regular D’Arienzo. However, as a fanatical D’Arienzologist, I feel morally obliged to present a more… noisy counterweight from the same year (1941) soon.

Fellow worshippers of Hector Mauré ought not to despair, though, because my blog will definitely provide you with much more of this in the future.

Netanyahu Will Be Speaking in Winston Churchill’s Shadow

the 1st think come to mind when I read about this speach

TIME

A leader of a close U.S. ally arrives in Washington to speak before Congress for his third time, as relations between the two countries begin to fray.

That was British Prime Minister Winston Churchill in January 1952, making what TIME then called a “cautiously billed” visit to the United States to attempt to restore the close ties that had carried the U.S. and Britain through World War II.

The same description might also work for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who addresses Congress on Tuesday, becoming only the second foreign leader to address Congress three times. The close relationship between Israel and the U.S. has been buffeted by Israeli policies in the West Bank (opposed by the White House) and by U.S.-led negotiations with Iran over its nuclear program (opposed by Netanyahu). Now, Netanyahu is hoping to convince Washington to see eye-to-eye with him on Iran’s nuclear program.
