The Horror Honeys: Revenge Wednesday Jam ~ 'Llorando'

Revenge Wednesday Jam ~ 'Llorando'

Yo estaba bien por un tiempo
volviendo a sonreir
luego anoche te vi
tu mano me toco
y el saludo de tu voz
te hable muy bien y tu
sin saber
que he estado llorando por tu amor
llorando por tu amor

David Lynch's Mulholland Drive is one of my favorite films. Jay Brannan is one of my favorite singer/songwriters. But when you combine the two? Watch my face melt off with happiness. In my mind, the pivotal scene in Mulholland Drive has always been the one featuring singer Rebekah del Rio as she sings "Llorando," and teaches Naomi Waats and Laura Harring that reality is nothing more than an illusion. This scene at the Club Silencio never ceases to move me, in part because of del Rio's performance. So Jay Brannan's equally moving cover of del Rio's cover of Roy Orbison's song (that's a hell of a chain, I'm aware) is my new favorite thing.

Watch both versions of the song below!
