La tercera es “Here today”, de Paul McCartney.

And if I say I really knew you well, What would your answer be? If you were here today. Uh, uh, uh, here today. Well, knowing you, You’d probably laugh and say that we were worlds apart. If you were here today. Uh, uh, uh, here today. But as for me, I still remember how it was before And I am holding back the tears no more. No, no, no, I love you, uh. What about the time we met? Well, I suppose that you could say that we were playing hard to get. Didn’t understand a thing, But we could always sing. What about the night we cried? Because there wasn’t any reason left to keep it all inside. Never understood a word, But you were always there with a smile. And if I say I really loved you And was glad you came along. Then you were here today, Uh, uh, uh, for you were in my song. Uh, uh, uh, here today.

DOS BELLAS CANCIONES RELACIONADAS CON CUBA

Cuba no sólo es un semillero de grandes músicos, también ha sido la inspiración para que extranjeros escribieran libros, hicieran películas o compusieran canciones.

Esta semana les dejo aquí en mi blog dos canciones que me gustan mucho, inspiradas en esa isla tan musical.

El disco ABRE (1999), de el argentino Fito Páez, contiene esta hermosa canción: “Habana”.

En el álbum ALEVOSÍA (1995) del español Luis Eduardo Aute, hay una canción totalmente bella: “Hemingway delira”.

BONUS TRACK. He aquí una espléndida versión de “Hemingway delira” del cubano Eliades Ochoa, que vale la pena ser escuchada
