What a wonderful surprise, to find the graphic Inspectorjury made of the two of us dancing The Tango! Inspectorjury, words cannot convey what I'm feeling right now! I'm dancing on a cloud!

This page, along with the song and lyrics, both in English and Spanish, Por Una Cabeza, by Carlos Gardel and Alfredo Le Pera, is dedicated to YOU!

"Life is like Tango... sad, sensual,
sexy, violent and quiet."

Although, The Tango became the national music of Argentina, it is a combination of many different cultures. It is a dance of sensual passion which brings one to extreme pleasure.

I am multi-cultural; my mother came from Mexico, my Grandmother from Spain and my Father from Lebanon, and by the grace of God, I AM AN AMERICAN FIRST! YAY! I chose my Mother's and Grandmother’s culture instead of my Dads, and the music is just one of the many loves of my life. I am a LOVER of Latin music, and love dancing the Chachachá, Las Cumbias, El Merengue, El Mambo, La Bachata, and El Reggaeton, but the Tango has to be my most favorite. If you really want to get theatrical and have fun, just place the stem of a red rose between your teeth and dance away!

"Other music exists to heal wounds; but the tango
when sung and played is for the purpose of
opening them, for the purpose of sticking your
finger in the wound and to tear them until they bleed."

Scent of a Woman is one of my favorite movies, for many reasons, but the scene where Lt. Col. Frank Slade and the girl dance the Tango to the song of Por Una Caveza, has to be my favorite!

Inspectorjury, you have brought tears to my eyes, tears of happiness. Now you and I have two songs which will belong to only us until the end of time, that Hillbilly song with the banjos, and now this one; The Tango!

You have made my life so happy, how could I ever live without you! And to think I almost threw away this wonderful and once in a lifetime relationship you in Cyberspace! I was such a fool, but thank God my brother's knocked some sense into me before it was too late.

I think about you EVERY single day, and I Love you with all my heart,




Por una cabeza de un noble potrillo
que justo en la raya afloja al llegar
y que al regresar parece decir:
no olvides, hermano,
vos sabes, no hay que jugar...

Por una cabeza, metejon de un dia,
de aquella coqueta y risueña mujer
que al jurar sonriendo,
el amor que esta mintiendo
quema en una hoguera todo mi querer.

Por una cabeza
todas las locuras
su boca que besa
borra la tristeza,
calma la amargura.

Por una cabeza
si ella me olvida
que importa perderme,
mil veces la vida
para que vivir...

Cuantos desengaños, por una cabeza,
yo jure mil veces no vuelvo a insistir
pero si un mirar me hiere al pasar,
su boca de fuego, otra vez, quiero besar.

Basta de carreras, se acabo la timba,
un final reñido yo no vuelvo a ver,
pero si algun pingo llega a ser fija el domingo,
yo me juego entero, que le voy a hacer.

Losing by a head of a noble horse
who slackens just down the stretch
and when it comes back it seems to say:
don't forget brother,
You know, you shouldn't bet.

Losing by a head, instant violent love
of that flirtatious and cheerful woman
who, swearing with a smile
a love she's lying about,
burns in a blaze all my love.

Losing by a head
there was all that madness;
her mouth in a kiss
wipes out the sadness,
it soothes the bitterness.

Losing by a head
if she forgets me,
no matter to lose
my life a thousand times;
why live?

Many deceptions, loosing by a head...
I swore a thousand times not to insist again
but if a look sways me on passing by
her lips of fire, I want to kiss once more.

Enough of race tracks, no more gambling,
a photo-finish I'm not watching again,
but if a pony looks like a sure thing on Sunday,
I'll bet everything again, what can I do?
