about

Alvaro got in touch with me and jokingly asked me for a birthday song. I avoided the subject, but then he sent me a picture he had drawn of me: alcione.tumblr.com/post/872776865

I really liked it, so I said "well, I'll have to make you a birthday song now" and I thought it was ages away but he sent me a message yesterday saying "I can't wait for my birthday song!" and I had forgotten all about it but I hate letting people down so I made him this song today when I should have been doing something else! It's not particularly well mixed / mastered, but I REALLY SHOULD BE DOING OTHER THINGS so it will do! Happy Birthday Alvaro, hope you like your song!

lyrics

Hola Alvaro! Es tu cumpleaños hoy. Aquí está una pequeña canción para ti. Es muy funky, así que espero que tengas unos zapatos para bailar pulg. Sí sí, todo el mundo. Es tiempo de fiesta! Levante la copa de Alvaro Troncosco. Beber con alegría, amigos, y ondeando las manos en el aire!

Oh Alvaro it's your birthday. You're gonna have a good time tonight, gonna have a good time tonight.
Oh Troncosco, it's your birthday. You're gonna get right down tonight, gonna get right down tonight.

You're not boring, you like drawing, wish you were touring the universe, you converse with your lady, Magdalena, you ain't in spain but chile, really far away but you daydream every day, you don't believe in time and space, it's just play,
taste time travel unravel dimensions we create tension with tenses, past and future,
The truth is beautiful, cuticles covered in ink coz you think while you illustrate characters, far out landscapes, handshakes having to be covered in pastels and crayon, you play on paper, take a moment to taper the pencil til it's sharp, draw a smiley face coz when it gets dark it's party time.

Oh Alvaro it's your birthday. You're gonna have a good time tonight, gonna have a good time tonight.
Oh Troncosco, it's your birthday. You're gonna get right down tonight, gonna get right down tonight.

You like music, you always choose it over no music, to me that proves it,
You play in Moreno, say no more, you just love it, but you adore your wife quite above it,
I saw your stuff on the net, we haven't met yet, but you drew a portrait of me and I was impressed, and I want 300 more, so get drawing hombre!

sí sí, amigo! Es tu cumpleaños, así que más vale estar bailando! Tienes un gran tiempo con tus amigos, y bailar hasta el amanecer.

Oh Alvaro it's your birthday. You're gonna have a good time tonight, gonna have a good time tonight.
Oh Troncosco, it's your birthday. You're gonna get right down tonight, gonna get right down tonight.

Un gran abrazo, Alvaro!
