Raphaelismo ilustrado

So you still don’t know what being in love is like? Stress no more: Spanish crooner Raphael gives you no less than twelve different definitions of such state in Estar enamorado (To be in love), a song from 1981 written by the singer’s habitual partner in crime, Manuel Alejandro.

Together, Raphael and Alejandro have formed one of the great partnerships in music, bringing scores of brilliant romantic classics to the Spanish songbook over the 1960’s and 1970´s. Estar enamorado is one of their last and most powerful creations.

The song is a festival of infinitives, a real bacchanal of verbs in their -ar and -ir forms, matched with an array of big, primordial nouns such as el día y la noche, (day and night), el mundo (the world), el tiempo, (time), la vida (life), la muerte (death), el mar (the sea), árboles y rosas (trees and roses) or tu voz (your voice).
