Soy un hombre muy honrado
Que me gusta lo mejor
Las mujeres no me faltan, ni el dinero, ni el amor
Jineteando en mi caballo
Por la sierra yo me voy
Las estrellas y la luna, ellas me dicen donde voy

Ay, ay, ay, ay
Ay, ay mi amor
Ay mi morena de mi corazón

Me gusta tocar guitarra
Me gusta cantar el son
Mariachi me acompaña cuando canto mi canción
Me gusta tomar mis copas
Aguardiente es lo mejor
También el tequila blanco con su sal le da sabor

Ay, ay, ay, ay
Ay, ay mi amor
Ay mi morena de mi corazón

Me gusta tocar guitarra
Me gusta cantar el son
El mariachi me acompaña cuando canto mi canción
Me gusta tomar mis copas
Aguardiente es lo mejor
También el tequila blanco con su sal le da sabor

Ay, ay, ay, ay
Ay, ay mi amor
Ay mi morena de mi corazón
Ay, ay, ay, ay
Ay, ay mi amor
Ay mi morena de mi corazón

    translated by yours truly. If your asking yourself why the hell does antonio banderas have a song attributed to his name? well the answer is that Mr. Banderas wrote this song for the Robert Rodriguez movie "Desperado" maybe you've heard of it? anyway Antonio played a carachter that was a mariachi (a traveling mexican musician) and with the help of Los Lobos, this suprisingly very good song was produced. I suggest you donwload it, even without a knowledge of spanish, the song is gr8 to listien to. I'm not sure if its on the soundtrack so the best thing to do would be to download it. And see the movie while ur at it its great as well. its part of a three part series along with "El Mariachi" Robert Rodriguez's first movie, being the first part, and the upcoming movie, "Once upon a time in Mexico" being the third part. Starring Antonio Banderas, Johnny Depp, Selma Hayek, Danny Trejo, Cheech Marin, and so on.

    "A mujeres no me faltan" I thought that meant "I lack no woman"? So it would be, "I lack no woman, money or love"?

    Just doesn't make sense if he says that he doesn't need any love when the rest of the song is pretty much a love song to Morena? Or is the "Morena", i.e. the brunette, the horse? And he sings that he doesn't need love, money or love but just a horse and the plains so-to-speak?

    I am honored man and i like the best of life i don't lack in women money or love

    Mounted on my horse i ride through the mountain side the stars and the moon they will be my guide

    Oh,oh,oh oh oh my love oh my brunette beautiful love

    i love playing my guitar i love singing "The Son" my band is always with me every time this song is sung

Techno Ted
Audioslave
Techno Ted may be a person who caused Chris incredible emotional pain & trepidation as well as moments of peace & happiness but now is removed and awaiting his fate. Darling may be a different person who is also free of him and can live her life free of Ted's tyranny. "In between all the laughing, and daydreams ... lies: a desert of truth" Lies are like a desert or the omission of Truth: Where there were Lies then Truth was absent. The song, "Techno Ted", may be a cathartic celebration of the downfall of this person.

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.
