Spanish song: El dí que me quieras
This beautiful and melancholic tango song, about the hopes of one who’s fallen in love, was recorded in New York around 1934. It was sung by the legendary singer Carlos Gardel.
Acaricia mi ensueño
Caress my imagination
It’s a beautiful song but the third stanza is a bit of an issue in Spanish. It says that the fireflies “harán nido en tu pelo” (will nest in your hair). Some think the line goes “Arácnido en tu pelo” (Arachnid in your hair). The problem is pretty funny, but the confusion is understandable given the amount of nature references that appear in the song, and the fact that right afterward the song mentions fireflies, even though these are coleopterans and not arachnids.
