There is a very emotionally disturbing song, “llorando”, from the movie Mulholland Drive (2001)
The song is so touching that when it is playing, it makes me listen intently, and it changes my brain's state into a deep philosophical sorrow on human suffering, and often i broke into silent tears all over my face.
While in 2001 when Mulholland Drive with this song came out, i researched on the web who's the singer. I found the singer's site with email, and sent her $1 thru PayPal. (1 dollar is small, but in my opinion is the right way to express my deep appreciation. At the time, it's the dot com era with lots of new visions of web stores and economy, and the concept of Micropayment is still alive. Though, i think she probably doesn't even know what PayPal. is, and i doubt she actually got my dollar.)
The song〈Llorando〉 is a Spanish version of the song “Crying” by Roy Orbison (1936 – 1988).
Here's the lyrics.
Yo estaba bien por un tiempo, volviendo a sonreír. Luego anoche te vi tu mano me tocó y el saludo de tu voz. Y hablé muy bien de tu sin saber que he estado llorando por tu amor. Luego de tu adiós sentí todo mi dolor. Sola y llorando, llorando, llorando, llorando No es fácil de entender que al verte otra vez Yo seguiré llorando Yo que pensé que te olvidé pero es verdad es la verdad que te quiero aún más, mucho más que ayer. Dime tú qué puedo hacer no me quieres ya y siempre estaré llorando por tu amor (x2). Tu amor se llevó todo mi corazon y quedo llorando llorando por tu amor.
I was all right for a while, I could smile for a while But I saw you last night you held my hand so tight As you stopped to say hello Oh, you wished me well, you couldn't tell That I've been crying over you, crying over you And you said, so long Left me standing all alone Alone and crying, crying, crying, crying It's hard to understand but the touch of your hand Can start me crying I thought that I was over you But it's true, so true I love you even more than I did before But darling, what can I do For you don't love me and I'll always be Crying over you, crying over you Yes, now you're gone and from this moment on I'll be crying, crying, crying, crying Yeah, crying, crying over you
Here's a mixed version, with scenes from the movie.
I bought both the DVD and soundtrack too. All the songs are fantastic. amazon All the music is composed by Angelo Badalamenti.
