Cheiro de Gardênia





Perfume de Gardenia
Gregório Barrios
 
Perfume de gardenia
Tiene tu boca
Belissimos destellos
De luz en tu mirar
Tu risa es una rima
De alegres notas
Se mueven tus cabellos
Cual ondas de la mar
Tu cuerpo es una copia
De venus y siteres
Que envidian las mujeres
Cuando te ven pasar
Y llevas en el alma
La virginal pureza
Por eso es tu belleza
De un mistico candor
Perfume de gardenia
Tiene tu boca
Perfume de gardenia
Perfume del amor

Blue Gardenia
Nat King Cole
 

Blue Gardenia
Now blue I'm alone with you
And I am oh so blue
She has tossed us aside
And like you, gardenia
Once I was near her heart
After the teardrops start
Where are teardrops to hide

I lived for an hour
What more can I tell
Love bloomed like a flower
Then the petals fell
Blue gardenia
Thrown to a passing breeze
But rest in my book
Of mem-or-ries

I lived for an hour
What more can I tell
Love bloomed like a flower
Then the petals fell
Blue gardenia
Thrown to a passing breeze
But rest in my book
Of mem-or-ries
Composição: Bob Russell / Lester Lee




The Blue Gardenia (2006)

My only blues piece, "The Blue Gardenia" was written at the request of pianist John Martin, to whom it is dedicated. The title reflects my love for the legendary blues singer, Billie Holiday who wore her heart on her sleeve and a gardenia in her hair. Gardenias also happen to be my most favourite flower. This recording is from John Martin's Wirripang Cd release "Tunes for Mademoiselle". 

From the liner notes for "Tunes for Mademoiselle" : 

"The Blue Gardenia was written for John Martin by master miniaturist Phillip Wilcher and is a beautiful example of a piano blues, representing a slight change of direction for this most romantic of Australian composers. It is simple and uncluttered, displaying Wilcher's great ability to write music free of excess that is always attractive and engaging."




Blue Moon
Billie Holiday
 
Blue moon
You saw me standing alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own

Blue moon
You knew just what I was there for
You heard me saying a prayer for
Someone I realy could care for

And then there suddenly appeared before me
The only one my arms will ever hold
I heard somebody whisper, "please adore me"
And when I looked, the moon had turned to gold

Blue moon
Now I'm lo longer alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own
Composição: Lorenz Hart / Richard Rodgers



Blue Gardênia
Cauby Peixoto
 
Blue Gardênia
Flor da recordação
Traz ao meu coração
Lembranças do amor primeiro
Gardênia pétalas já sem cor
Sombras de um grande amor
Que o passado levou
Teu perfume vagou
Tão pouco vagou
Nem brindou, se afogou, quem me abandou
Blue Gardênia
Flor da recordação que se desfolhou
No coração
I lived for an hour
What more can I tell
Love bloomed like a flower
Then the petals fell

Blue Gardênia
Flor da recordação

Que se desfolhou no coração
