El Duelo

Today we bring to you a Chilean Rock Classic from La Ley. This song was released in 1995 from the album “Invisible”. Invisible was a huge success for the band as they were still mourning the death of one of the founding members of the group, Andres Bobe. The band (Cuevas, Rojas, Clavería, Frugone, and Aboitiz) soon shot to international fame.

The song rose on the charts again in 2001 when La Ley performed the song for an MTV Unplugged session with the addition of the Mexican singer, Ely Guerra.

Sing along:

Con una lagrima de fe sobre tu piel
olvide la grieta que dejo tu amor
pero ese instinto taurino de tu ser
me obligo a azotarte tiernamente

Sin dolor no te haces feliz
sin dolor no te haces feliz
sin amor…
no sufres mas
Toda esa noche provocaste ver en mi
lo que a nadie muestro en la intimidad
pero ese tipo de mirada que hay en ti
me obligo a matarte lentamente
Sin dolor no te haces feliz
sin dolor no te haces feliz
sin amor… lentamente
Sin dolor no te haces feliz
sin dolor no te haces feliz
sin amor
no sufres mas

 

The song in English easily translates to “Bereavement”. Here are the loosely translated lyrics.

With a tear of faith over your skin
I forget the wound that left me your love
but that taurine instint of you being
forced me to flog you
tenderly

Without pain you’re not happy
without pain you’re not happy
without love …
you don’t suffer anymore

that night you provoked in my
what to anybody I show in the intimacy
but this way of looking in you
it forced me to kill you
slowly

Without pain you’re not happy
without pain you’re not happy
without love …
slowly

Without pain you’re not happy
without pain you’re not happy
without love …
you don’t suffer anymore
