Every Little Thing About You - The Mavericks - Live

Even though this is a "modern" American song...the lyrics are all tango...and the rhythm is totally danceable...everyone loves it when I play this at our milongas here in Aspen...the version I have is still live...but much better...more energy and emotion...

dear alex,

(reposted from my blog:)

an excellent find! there are so many traditional tangos being turned into alternative versions… why can’t it be the other way around, so that non-tango songs can be made into a traditional golden-age sounding tango?

maybe the musical creativity of the golden age is lost to us forever, with the passing of an era?

Hi Nuit,

Yes, I have actually thought of commissioning someone to turn this one into a tango...

My spanish is not so great...

"Todas Pocas Cosas"

Babel Fish says...

"cada pequeña cosa sobre usted"

I like "Pocas Cosas" or "Pequenas Cosas"...

It's interesting how difficult it is to get the same meaning in two different languages... I'm sure there is a colloquialism in Spanish that would come closer to the English meaning of the title...

Oh well... enough...
