Induced by the mil-civvy thread, "Al los caidos" = "To the fallen", a traditional Spanish mil tune re-interpreted (the band changed the text quite a lot, especially the line "No quisieron querer a otra bandera" (= "They did not want to love another flag") to "No quisieron querer a otra tierra" (= "They did not want to love another country"), so now the main part says:

Quote:
No quisieron querer a otra tierra / They did not want to love another country
no quisieron andar otro camino / They did not want to take another way
no supieron morir de otra manera / They did not know how to die in another way
a todos los caídos
/ To all the fallen
Quote:
Rindamosles honores
a los hombres que han caído
el recuerdo nunca es muerte
no caeréis en el olvido

Valerosos temerarios
la muerte nunca os asustó
aceptasteis el destino

Orgullosos y leales
España en vuestro corazón
honor y gloria a los caídos

No quisieron querer a otra tierra
no quisieron andar otro camino
no quisieron morir de otra manera
a todos los caídos

No quisieron querer a otra tierra
no quisieron andar otro camino
no quisieron morir de otra manera
a todos los caídos

En la lucha camaradas
nunca os disteis por vencidos
siempre todo por la patria
vuestro honor es nuestro orgullo

Valerosos temerarios
la muerte nunca os asustó
aceptasteis el destino

Orgullosos y leales
España en vuestro corazón
honor y gloria a los caídos

No quisieron querer a otra tierra
no quisieron andar otro camino
no quisieron morir de otra manera
a todos los caídos

No quisieron querer a otra tierra
no quisieron andar otro camino
no quisieron morir de otra manera
a todos los caídos

Here the original (lyrics in the vid):

Ok, as promised, my valentines day selection: http://ohlmer.es/blog/938

... and the unforgettable Klaus Nomi, how I have been missing this gorgeous voice art covering from soprano to bass...:

Thanks for sharing this Rattler, and yes, it's art. Very unique indeed.

My contribution for the evening.

Hope you enjoy.

Glad you liked it!

One of his performances (a Henry Purcell composition) I wish fo my folks to put on for my funeral:

Quote:
What power are thou, Who from below
Hast made me rise, Unwillingly and slow
From beds of everlasting snow!
See'st thou not, how stiff, And wondrous old,
Far unfit to bear the bitter cold.
I can scarcely move, Or draw my breath
Let me, let me, Freeze again
Let me, let me, Freeze again to death!

While maybe not technically the best countertenor ever, he sure was way a head of his time (and maybe still is 20 yrs after his death?) with his magic voice and performance.

This one for the people that had nobody on Valentines to direct their love to, may lightning strike again!


Enjoy!
