A Song For Sunday #2

Filed under: A Song for Sunday,Music — rmangum @ 2:42 am

Evening all. Well, I’ve committed myself to putting a new song up every Sunday and writing about it, but I’m usually committed to moderate-to-hard drinking on Saturday night, so we’ll see how the the writing holds up. This week I shall be quite brief. Here’s this week’s entry, on the occasion of the Oscars (not that I’ll probably even watch the thing), one of my favorite songs from a film in recent years:

Llorando- Rebekah del Rio

This is an acapella Spanish version of Roy Orbison’s “Crying”, as heard in David Lynch’s film Mulholland Drive. This is perhaps my favorite Lynch movie, and the scene the song is featured in is one of the best. What can I say about the song? The original is a masterpiece, and so is this gorgeous, haunting cover. Enjoy!

Now, I’m off to crash in front of the t.v. Night,all.

  1. Oh come now, Saturday wasn’t that heavy. Sure you’re not more hungover from the BBQ?

  2. Well, that and staying up all night. But I am beginning to think that barbecue is a dangerous and addictive substance.
