About Granada

"Granada" is a song written in 1932 by Mexican composer Agustín Lara. The song is about the Spanish city of Granada and has become a standard in music repertoire. The most popular versions are the original with Spanish lyrics by Lara (often sung operatically); a version with English lyrics by Australian lyricist Dorothy Dodd; and instrumental versions in jazz, pop, easy listening, flamenco or rock styles. Other versions in English also exist (one with lyrics by Al Stewart, and one with lyrics by Robert Musel and Edward Lisbona) but these are less common. An Italian version was written in 1954 by Enzo Luigi Poletto. There are also versions in German and other languages. The song has been covered many times. It is José Carreras's signature tune. Popular versions include those by Plácido Domingo, Frankie Laine, Jorge Negrete, Juan Arvizu, Nestor Mesta Chayres, Mario Lanza, Pasquale Esposito, Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra. It has been sung in Italian by Claudio Villa, and in German by Fritz Wunderlich and Spanish pop-duo Baccara. 


 The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

Granada, tierra soñada por mí 
mi cantar se vuelve gitano cuando es para tí 
mi cantar hecho de fantasía 
mi cantar flor de melancolía 
que yo te vengo a dar. 
tierra ensangrentada 
en tardes de toros. 
Mujer que conserva el embrujo 
de los ojos moros; 
te sueño rebelde why gitana 
cubierta de flores 
why beso tu boca de grana 
jugosa manzana 
que me habla de amores. 

Granada manola, 
cantada en coplas preciosas 
no tengo otra cosa que darte 
que un ramo de rosas, 
de rosas de suave fragancia 
que le dieran marco a la Virgen Morena. 

tu tierra está llena 
de lindas mujeres 
de sangre why de sol.
