Song of the day: Piensa en mí

It seems that Agustín Lara has been one of the favorite composers of the most-renowed tenors. His songs have been sung countless times by Plácido Domingo, Luciano Pavarotti, Fernando de la Mora, Alfredo Kraus, Rolando Villazón, Juan Diego Flores, José Carreras, Andrea Bocelli, and the list goes on and on.

This time I want to share a performance that happens to be very original for me. Recently, Roberto Alagna has released a new album called “Pasión”, where he pays tribute to some of the most appasionate songs from Latin America. As probably you might have guessed, some songs from Agustín Lara are present in this album. The first track is also the one that gives the name of the title of this post: “Piensa en mí”. There is actually a video released for this song from Roberto Alagna, which I post following:

The lyrics are quite easy to get and, depending on the perfomer, they vary a bit in some words to make it sadder or more romantic. Following I write down the lyrics in Spanish from Alagna’s version and its corresponding translation in English. Sing it! Sing it with passion!

Spanish English
Si tienes un hondo penarpiensa en mí.Si tienes ganas de llorarpiensa en mí.

Ya ves que venero

tu imagen divina,

tu párvula boca

que siendo tan niña

me enseñó a pecar.

Si tienes un hondo penar

piensa en mí.

Si tienes ganas de llorar

piensa en mí.

Ya ves que venero

tu imagen divina,

tu párvula boca

que siendo tan niña

me enseñó a pecar.

Piensa en mí

cuando beses.

Cuando llores

también piensa en mí.

Cuando quieras quitarme la vida.

No la quiero, para nada.

Para nada me sirve sin ti.

Piensa en mí

cuando sufras.

Cuando llores

también piensa en mí.

Cuando quieras quitarme la vida.

No la quiero, para nada.

Para nada me sirve sin ti.

If you have a deep sorrowthink about me.If you want to crythink about me.

You see that I worship

your divine image,

your infant mouth

that being so young

taught me to sin.

If you have a deep sorrow

think about me.

If you want to cry

think about me.

You see that I worship

your divine image,

your infant mouth

that being so young

taught me to sin.

Think about me

when you kiss.

When you cry

also think about me.

When you want to take my life away

I don’t want it, not at all.

It is useless without you.

Think about me

when you suffer.

When you cry

also think about me.

When you want to take my life away.

I don’t want it, not at all.

It is useless without you..

¡Piensa en mí!
