Song of the Day: Mocedades, “Eres Tu”

Today we’re looking for a foreign love song. Of course, for people outside the US, this means it could be a song from the US….

The song I’ve chosen is "Eres Tú," written in 1973 by Juan Carlos Calderón and performed by the Spanish band Mocedades. It was Spain’s entry in the 1973 Eurovision Song Contest, where it finished second, and was released as a single in 1974. It was a Top Ten hit in the US, Canada, the UK, and much of Europe, and reached #30 in Australia. The lead vocal is sung by Amaya Uranga.

A translation of the lyrics, by LyricsBox:

Like a promise you are, you are
like a summer morning.
like a smile you are, you are
that’s how you are

Like a hope you are, you are
like fresh rain in my hands
like a strong breeze you are, you are
that’s how you are

You are like the water of my fountain
you are the fire of my home
something like that is what you are
something like the fire of my bonfire
something like that is what you are, in my life
like my poem you are, you are
like a guitar at night
like my horizon you are, you are
that’s how you are

You are like the water of my fountain
you are the fire of my home
something like that is what you are
something like the fire of my bonfire
something like that is what you are, in my life
something like that is what you are
something like the water of my fountain
something like that you are,like the fire of my home

    1. That’s one of those songs that I liked despite myself when I was in high school. Now, I don’t let that bother me. I like the singer’s voice: it’s not the best I’ve heard, but it’s really pleasant.
