Jeanette - Porque Te Vas on Serie 3x4 (Karina, Massiel, Jeanette)


"Porque te vas" (Because you are leaving) is a song performed by the singer Jeanette written by José Luis Perales and remained relatively unknown at the start of 1974. Only when the song was used in Carlos Saura's 1976 film Cría Cuervos (Raising Crows), and the film went on to be honored at the Cannes Film Festival (Jury grand prize) and the Berlin Film Festival (Jury special prize), did the song become internationally known and a hit.

In Austria it reached number 13, in Switzerland number 4, and in Germany it even reached number 1. Although after "Porque te vas" Jeanette never achieved similar international success, she continued singing relatively successfully in Spain and Latin America, and to a lesser degree in France, well into the 1990s.

In 1978 the Brazilian singer Lilian Knapp recorded a Portuguese version of the song titled "Eu sem você" (B-side of another version of a Jeanette song, Soy Rebelde). The song was covered in 1996 by the Brazilian pop-rock band Pato Fu (album "Tem mas acabou"), and in 1997 by Mexican female group "Aurora y la Academia". Also José Luis Perales, author of "Porque te vas", recorded the song featuring Amaia Montero from Spanish group La Oreja de Van Gogh In 2006 by the duo Los Super Elegantes (aka Milena Muzquiz and Martiniano Lopez Crozet). The song which is on the album "Channelizing Paradise" also has an English version done as part of the track.

Jackson Browne - Doctor My Eyes on Jackson Browne (Saturate Before Using)
"Doctor, My Eyes" is a 1972 song written and performed by Jackson Browne and included on his debut album Jackson Browne. Featuring a combination of an upbeat piano riff coupled, somewhat ironically, with lyric about feeling world-weary, the song was a surprise hit, reaching #8 on the Billboard Hot 100 in spring 1972, after debuting on the chart at #80. Browne would not see the chart's Top 10 again until 1982's soundtrack hit "Somebody's Baby", although "Running on Empty" just missed the Top 10, reaching #11. Billboard ranked "Doctor My Eyes" as the No. 92 song for 1972. In Canada, the song peaked at number four.
