Let’s laugh


Spanish song

One of my favorite songs in Spanish. Like 11 years ago, I used some of the lyrics to create a message for my wedding anniversary.

Si me dieran a elegir una vez más
Te elegiría sin pensarlo
Es que no hay nada que pensar
Que no existe ni motivo, ni razón
Para dudarlo ni un segundo
Por que tú has sido lo mejor, que tocó este corazón
Y que entre el cielo y tú yo me quedo contigo
Si te he dado todo lo que tengo
Hasta quedar en deuda conmigo mismo
Y todavía preguntas si te quiero
Tú de que vas.
If I had to choose one more time
I would choose you without thinking
There is nothing to think about
That there is no motive, nor reason
To doubt it for a second
Because you have been the best, that touched this heart
And that between heaven and you, I stay with you.


For some people, today (3 May) is a sad day.

And this is the reason why – on 3 May 1987, Dalida committed suicide by overdosing on barbiturates.  She left behind a note which read, “La vie m’est insupportable… Pardonnez-moi.” (“Life has become unbearable for me… Forgive me.”).

Yolanda Cristina Gigliotti (17 January 1933 – 3 May 1987), better known as Dalida was an Egyptian-born Italian singer and actress who performed and recorded in more than ten languages, including Arabic, Italian, Greek, German, French, English, Japanese, Hebrew, Dutch and Spanish.

Twice honored with the Oscar mondial du succès du disque (the “World Oscar of Recording Success”), she is the only European singer to have won this award more than once. Dalida ranks among 7 biggest singers of all time.

If you don’t know her, listen to the next two songs. They are beautiful….and the fact that they are in Franch adds something extra.

Rest in peace, Dalida!
