Overview

Not all music is here to stay; many melodies are listened once and then get lost forever. But Guadalupe Loaeza has taken in her hands the deed of collecting the stories behind the songs that all world sings and remembers.
How was the life of Carlos Gardel, the best tango singer of all times and admired by its interpretation of ""Volver"" (Going Back)? Which is the story of ""The Marseillaise"", considered one of the most beautiful national hymns in the world? Who were the inspiring Muses of ""Lili Marleen"", the most popular song in the Second World War? With her enjoyable and very personal style, Guadalupe Loaeza makes a journey through the lives and the songs ""that are here to stay"", as a radio broadcasting slogan, famous in Mexico, called this memorable creations.
As the author says, perhaps the music is, after chocolate and sex, the best food for body and soul. Music lovers will doubtless enjoy the reading of these stories that will make them recall, meet and sing along with Frank Sinatra or the Macondo cumbia, and even move their feet with the ""virus"" of Cancan. Everything is in this book: anecdotes, smiles, some sad and even tragic stories, and all the magic behind the music that is here to stay.No toda la música ha llegado para quedarse; muchas melodías se escuchan una vez y se pierden para siempre. Pero Guadalupe Loaeza se ha encargado de reunir las historias que se encuentran detrás de las canciones que todo mundo canta y recuerda. Como dice la autora, tal vez la música sea, después del chocolate y el sexo, el mejor alimento para el espíritu y el cuerpo. Sin duda, el lector disfrutará con la lectura de estas historias que lo harán evocar, conocer y cantar con Frank Sinatra o con la cumbia de Macondo, y hasta mover los pies con el "virus" del Cancán. En este libro hay de todo: canciones que tienen detrás de sí anécdotas, sonrisas, algunas historias tristes y hasta trágicas, pero todas ellas han llegado para quedarse.
