Caruso
Lucio Dalla 1986 Many tenors have sung this. Perhaps the most popular version is by Luciano Pavarotti. I added a bit of modern guitar. I think my next version will be in a swing.

Dalla wrote this song about the Italian tenor Enrico Caruso (1873-1921).

Corazon Espinada
Carlos Santana;
Jose Fernando emilio Olvera Sierra
1999



Viby Latin rock, great for Cuban cha-cha, or salsa. I managed to replicate Carlos Santana's guitar sounds on my keyboard.

The song's title is about a heart that is stung by thorns.
