A Sunday morning here.
A new 'episode' of the "Evolution of a Song" series started by chococat a while ago.
An old Portuguese song.

A song for lovely miss V.
Very few words, but in many languages.
The wind in Belize keeps rattling palm trees.
Also known as "puddlewonderful." This is my contribution to the challenge and so, there's [more inside]
buriednexttoyou filter: last September, he posted a demo of his song, Moving Pictures. I immediately fell in love with it, and recently decided to make a cover of it. I asked him if he wouldn't mind, and he didn't, so here it is. He is got serious talent, and If you are one of those who loves finding great new music, good surprises await you at his site.
A little something my girl and I put together.
Dazzling Caracas. Forever in present tense.
V never used to believe me I was truly in love with her. She always said one day I'd get my things and disappear into that world I seemed so enamored with. Words couldn't convince her. The song did.
Another not-in-English one.
Crickets, guaguancó rhythm, double bass, jarana guitar, one singing voice and another one rapping.
I'm always unsure about posting the songs in languages other than English here, so I'll post this one with the question, would you listen to the song even if you don't understand the lyrics?
A quick snippet, to keep you entertained while a proper song is ready. This one was recorded for a TV program here, some time ago.
I must have had a sad, sad look when she turned to say goodbye, because she tilted her head, raised her hand, touched my face and said: don't worry, we'll be fine. And it was right then when she said it that I realized we were going to be perfectly fine indeed, we were just not going to be together anymore. I went back into my house and wrote this song.
21st century Brazilian Forró.
This one is by one of the guys in my band, on his own. Why am I posting it? Because I consider him to be Chicago's best kept secret and I want everybody to find out how good he is. David Boddiger, ladies and gentlemen.
Someone asked for more rockabilly. This is a song written by some friends, Los Esquizitos, performed and recorded here by us, with a drum track laid by their drummer.
CollaborationFilter: I had this song I could never considered finished because it sounded dreadful in my voice. Then I discovered Metafilter Music and here I discovered chococat. Like pretty much everyone else who heard his music, I was blown away. And so I asked him if he would help me out with the song. Cool guy he is, he did. And this is the result.
One in Japanese, fellows. I know there are a few of you who speak Japanese out there, so if the lyrics of this song don't really make sense, don't get offended, take it on a "best effort" basis. The lyrics were translated by the girl who sings in it, who is half Mexican, half Japanese. Also, if anyone can provide confirmation that it actually says something, it would be great, all this time we've only been able to hope the words actually say something and they were not taken from a refrigerator manual.
"Once I was running, running from..." 2 distorted acoustic guitars, a bass, a beatbox, one person yelling and some whistling.
Another one for the guitarron tag. For this one we invited a friend to sing, Marie Afonso, who used to be in Zap Mama. Two voices, a guitarron, an acoustic guitar and shakers. I really like what came out. Hopefully you will like it too.
About a month ago, I discovered this song in MuFi. The guitarron in the song seemed to intrigue some, I said my band also used a guitarron, that I would post songs with it, and perhaps we could get the guitarron tag going. Here is one of them, now let me hear your opinions.
A song originally by Mono Blanco, performed here by my band. We decided to EQ it in such a way that it would sound as if coming from an old radio. Being upbeat and cheerful, I thought it would be a good way to start the week.
Short tomwaitsy song, without any of Tom Waits' actual talent. It may sound better on headphones.
Small song I did for a weekly TV show in Venezuela.
Traditional Zapoteca song.
