Don't Cry For Me Argentina - Madonna Music: Andrew Lloyd Webber Lyrics: Tim Rice The song was written in 1976 in memory of Evita Perón, the second wife of Argentine President Juan Perón. Footage in the video is from the film: «Eva Perón» by Juan Carlos Desanzo, starring Esther Goris and Victor Laplace. The song was initially performed by Julie Covington and its name came from an inscription on the plaque of Evita Peron's grave at Recoleta cemetery in Buenos Aires. Madonna sang the same song in 1996, in the musical drama: Evita, directed by Alan Parker and written by Parker and Oliver Stone. The film starred Madonna as Evita Perón, Antonio Banderas as Ché and Jonathan Pryce as Juan Perón. It won't be easy, you'll think it strange when I try to explain how I feel that I still need your love after all that I've done. You won't believe me all you will see is a girl you once knew although she's dressed up to the nines at sixes and sevens with you. I had to let it happen, I had to change couldn't stay all my life down at heel looking out of the window, staying out of the sun. So I chose freedom running around, trying everything new but nothing impressed me at all I never expected it to. Don't cry for me Argentina the truth is I never left you all through my wild days my mad existence I kept my promise don't keep your distance. And as for fortune and as for fame I never invited them in though it seemed to the world they were all I desired. They are illusions they are not the solutions they promised to be the answer was here all the time I love you and hope you love me. Don't cry for me Argentina. Don't cry for me Argentina the truth is I never left you all through my wild days my mad existence I kept my promise don't keep your distance. Have I said too much? there's nothing more I can think of to say to you but all you have to do is look at me to know that every word is true.

Created by Dimitris Tsaganos - Artist: Madonna - "Don't Cry for Me Argentina" is a song from the 1978 musical "Evita" with music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Tim Rice. The musical concentrates on the life of Argentine political leader Eva Perón, the second wife of Argentine president Juan Perón. Sung by the title character Eva Perón, the song was titled "It's Only Your Lover Returning" before Rice settled on the eventual name. It appears early in the Act II as Evita addresses the crowd from the balcony of the Casa Rosada and features a sweeping melody tied to broad emotional themes of regret and defiance. She speaks to her adoring supporters, revealing that despite her initial goal of achieving fame and glory, she has found her true calling to be the people of her country. "Don't Cry for Me Argentina" appeared also near the end of the show, as the spirit of the dead Eva Perón exhorts the people of Argentina not to mourn her. Tim Rice points out that in this instance "cry" refers to shouting or calling out rather than weeping. As a child stamp collector, Tim Rice had been fascinated by Eva Perón's image on the Argentine stamps, but was unaware of her significance in Argentina's history. He began research and the more Rice investigated Eva Perón, going so far as to travel to Buenos Aires to research her life with many documents and contacts, the more fascinated he became by the woman; he even named his first daughter after her. It was not until 1996 that "Evita" came to the big screen. Alan Parker directed the film, with Madonna in the title role, Antonio Banderas as Che and Jonathan Pryce as Perón. The film was nominated for five Academy Awards. Madonna's interpretation, not only in this song but in the whole musical, is wonderful and exciting... ___________________________________________________ *Correction in 2nd Image (title): "Don't *Cry* for Me Argentina" ___________________________________________________ "Don't Cry For Me Argentina" It won't be easy, you'll think it strange When I try to explain how I feel That I still need your love after all that I've done You won't believe me All you will see is a girl you once knew Although she's dressed up to the nines At sixes and sevens with you I had to let it happen, I had to change Couldn't stay all my life down at heel Looking out of the window, staying out of the sun So I chose freedom Running around, trying everything new But nothing impressed me at all I never expected it to Don't cry for me Argentina The truth is I never left you All through my wild days My mad existence I kept my promise Don't keep your distance And as for fortune, and as for fame I never invited them in Though it seemed to the world they were all I desired They are illusions They are not the solutions they promised to be The answer was here all the time I love you and hope you love me Don't cry for me Argentina Have I said too much?

Another Suitcase In Another Hall Lyrics: [Eva:] I don't expect my love affairs to last for long Never fool myself that my dreams will come true Being used to trouble I anticipate it But all the same I hate it, wouldn't you? [Chorus:] [Eva:] So what happens now? [Che:] Another suitcase in another hall [Eva:] So what happens now? [Che:] Take your picture off another wall [Eva:] Where am I going to? [Che:] You'll get by, you always have before [Eva:] Where am I going to? Time and time again I've said that I don't care That I'm immune to gloom, that I'm hard through and through But every time it matters all my words desert me So anyone can hurt me, and they do [chorus] Call in three months time and I'll be fine, I know Well maybe not that fine, but I'll survive anyhow I won't recall the names and places of each sad occasion But that's no consolation here and now. [chorus, with Che's lines being sung by the starlets] [Huevo:] Don't ask anymore.
Waltz For Eva And Che lyrics [Che:] Tell me before I waltz out of your life Before turning my back on the past Forgive my impertinent behavior But how long do you think this pantomime can last? Tell me before I ride off in the sunset There's one thing I never got clear How can you claim you're our savior When those who oppose you are stepped on, Or cut up, or simply disappear? [Eva:] Tell me before you get onto your bus Before joining the forgotten brigade How can one person like me, say, Alter the time-honored way the game is played? Tell me before you get onto your high horse Just what you expect me to do I don't care what the bourgeoisie say I'm not in business for them But to give all my descamisados A magical moment or two [Che and Eva:] There is evil, ever around Fundamental system of government Quite incidental [Eva:] So what are my chances of honest advances? I'd say low Better to win by admitting my sin Than to lose with a halo [Che:] Tell me before I seek worthier pastures And thereby restore self-esteem How can you be so short-sighted To look never further than this week or next week To have no impossible dream? [Eva:] Allow me to help you slink off to the sidelines And mark your adieu with three cheers But first tell me who'd be delighted If I said I'd take on the world's greatest problems From war to pollution, no hope of solution Even if I lived for one hundred years [Che and Eva:] There is evil, ever around Fundamental system of government Quite incidental [Eva:] So go, if you're able, to somewhere unstable And stay there Whip up your hate in some tottering state But not here, dear Is that clear, dear? Oh what I'd give for a hundred years But the physical interferes Every day more, O my Creator What is the good of the strongest heart In a body that's falling apart? A serious flaw, I hope You know that
