"And my most ardent desireIf you think that looks good on your screen, you should hear Elizeth sing it, her voice melting from dreamy resignation to trembling passion, jealousy and anger.
May God pardon me the sin!
Is that another woman by your side
Kill you in the hour of a kiss."
This week, I finally paid attention to my second-favorite song on the album, "Só Voce, Mais Nada," which I think means "Only You; Nothing Else." Translating even more shakily than before, I hear the first verse as:
"Only you, nothing elseThe first song covers obsession and doom. The second has atmosphere down, I'd say.
In the silence of the night
The emptiness of the street
When nothing happens
Only you go on."
What new noir songs have you heard since last year's list? And what makes noir noir for you?
