Several days ago in the course of conducting a web search, Vicki Overfelt came across a 2008 Rifftides mini-review of a Rosa Passos album, Romance. She used the comment function to ask if anyone could help her find the object of her search. She wanted the words to “Desilusión,” a song Passos wrote with lyricist Santiago Auserón and recorded on her 2006 CD Rosa. Skeptical that other trollers might find her plea so long after the initial item, we nonetheless posted the query.
Lo and behold, yesterday Rubén González sent a message from Rosario, Argentina, with the Spanish lyrics to “Desilusión.” We thank Sr. González. To see the original review in its Recent Listening, In Brief setting and the chain of correspondence containing the lyrics, go here.
