If you don’t feel like dancing, you soon will. One of the happiest performances I’ve ever seen. Love this guy.
I remember listening to this song as a lonely 16-year-old, living on my own for the first time, somehow aching for someone I hadn’t met yet to “come home” and be with me. The other day I came across it again (though I hadn’t heard this wonderful live version before – that voice!) and I was once again hit with a sense of longing. And I thought that – just one more time in my life – I would like to fall in love again. Well, you never know…
Update: It seems I need to point out that I am really very happy these days and not actually needing this. It was just a thought I had while hearing this song again. So I would prefer that the person stalking me and leaving unwanted comments find something better to do.
This is Carlos González. We’ve known each other by sight for well over 20 years. I remember many times returning exhausted after evening English classes and being soothed by his lovely guitar playing as I passed him on my way home. These days I pass him on my tapas tours and clients are always charmed.
Then one day a couple of months ago we saw each other in the street, in a different part of town and we both stopped – suddenly both out of context – and then I said… “hey, I know you!”. And we started to chat. You can find Carlos almost every evening in the Plaza del Triunfo next to the Cathedral in Sevilla. Stop by and listen (and buy one of his CDs!). He’s a lovely man and a brilliant guitarist.
