Though Valentine’s Day is over, I thought that I should still write a short article about a love song I like very much. I want to share it with you and you might fall in love with it too, in case you haven’t heard it before.
The song is entitled Angelina, it is sung by the pop operatic group Il Divo and it is included on their fourth studio album, The Promise (2008). The song revolves around a passionate dance, which is a metaphor for the addictive love and lust that the couple can’t get enough of. It is a fiery dance that chases away fear and heals the pain, but it ceases at the break of dawn, just to bring the lovers back together the very next night.
When the two are separated, everything is depressing without the presence of their significant other, who can quench their thirst for lust and their love for dancing. The romantic Spanish lyrics and the rhythm of this song make me imagine a sexy flamenco dancer who slowly seduces a foreign girl by introducing her to his culture and by patiently teaching her the steps and moves of this passionate dance he knows too well. Sounds like a nice idea for a romance novel, who knows?
That’s all for today’s post! If you are still interested in this beautiful theme, check out my poem, The Spanish Dancer. Until next time!
