|Paula Fernandes (1)|
It was a short day in volunteering. After words, I took some flyers to a constituent’s house and that was such a lovely moment. We spoke endlessly about this and that, having a nice glass of tea with lemon. I enjoyed this instance in my day.
It is important to note that a wonderful side bar to blogging is meeting and appreciating so many amazing people, their culture and music from all corners of the world. One of my friends from Brazil sent me a video clip, today and I just fell in love with this lady’s sexy style, sultry vocals and beautifully made videos. So, without further ado, let me introduce her.
The sensuous beautiful lady I am featuring tonight goes by the name of Paula Fernandes, yes with an “s” and not a “z”. She is Brazilian singer, song writer and 2011 Latin Grammy Award winner for "Best Music Album Sertaneja". Her genre is considered MPB, sertanejo, country. Just a little background, the sertanejo music style originated in the 1920’s from the Brazilian countryside and the song that I am going to feature is incredibly romantic. The lyrics translated into English are listed below. The song is titled “Passáro de Fogo or Firebird”(2) which was uploaded by Universal Music Brazil onto YouTube on September 30, 2009.
This music is just haunting, inspiring, sizzling white-hot with sensuality and passion that cannot be resisted by a diehard romantic like me. I hope you enjoy this incredible artistry as much as I do and have a blessed weekend.
“Passáro de Fogo or Firebird”(3)
You'll give yourself to me
Like our very first time
You'll get delirious with love
You'll feel my warmth
You'll be mine
I am the fire bird
That sings in your ears
I 'm going to win this game
By making love to you like mad
I want this outlawed love for myself
My erratic soul, my independent heart
Both run a serious danger (of falling in love) because of you.
I want to discover your secrets
To drive your mind crazy
To be more than a friend
Don't say no
A new love
A new romance to yourself
(As you get) Far off the ground
I will be your feet,
Carried by wings of dream heading to your heart
Let yourself feel it
Give yourself over
Ride on my body
Oh my eternal passion
