Kraus, Alfredo – Estrellita (little star)
January 7, 2009 in Daily theme
Days ago I talked you about names on trial. Immediately my family the most part phoned me to say:
Your name is beautiful, wonderful, great, lovely… and so on.
In “names on trial” I said you that I share my name with dogs, horses, cats, cleaning products and so on. Also, with songs among them there is one for me very special .
This song is part of my personal imagery. This song brings me many years ago to a sunny but cold winter morning, when I see my mother in the kitchen cooking hot chocolate. A chocolate very different of those ones you can buy nowadays in the market (two minutes in the microwave and that’s all). She always used Amatller chocolate. On Spain we call it “chocolate a la piedra ” (stone chocolate).
When my father finished shaving, I run to the bathroom to clean his razor, an old razor like this one.
While I was trying don’t cut myself with the blade, my father opened the radio lid. It was something like this, you can see above. But our radio wasn’t a Telefunken, our radio was made my older brother.
In that old radio, just every Sunday, at least I remember it in that way we can listen this song.
In that time, for me, Alfredo Kraus was only the blue eyes man in the disk cover
