"I discovered this band when I was spending time in Barcelona. They are very well-known in Spain, but not so well outside that country. Let's change that!"
15 Points Per Correct Answer - No time limit
For starters, tell me if the following is true: the band name, "Amaral", is the last name of lead singer and founding member, Eva.
Amaral won the MTV Europe Music Award in 2002 for their album, "Estrella de mar" ("Starfish"). Which of the following songs is NOT featured on that album?
Moriría por vos
The British rock band Placebo sang a famous song called "Without You I'm Nothing". Amaral have released a song with a similar title in Spanish (but it has nothing to do with the Placebo song). What is the title of that song?
Soy nada sin ti
Sin ti no soy nada
Sin ti no soy nadie
One of my favorite songs is an almost minimalistic track from Amaral's self-titled first album (1997). It features a tango-esque bassline, and an excerpt from the lyrics reads, "La libertad es una amiga traidora / Y me dejó abandonada" ("Freedom is a treacherous friend and left me all alone"). Which song is it?
Lo quiero oír de tu boca
No soy como tú
No existen los milagros
Siento que te extraño
Amaral's biggest hit to date was "El universo sobre mí". From which platinum-winning album comes this song?
Una pequeña parte del mundo
Estrella de mar
Pájaros en la cabeza
Gato negro dragón rojo
The energetic "Subamos al cielo" is the first track on the 2000 album, "Una pequeña parte del mundo". Which of the following is NOT mentioned in the lyrics?
flying carpets ("alfombras voladoras")
party drums ("los tambores de fiesta")
the seed of the moon ("la semilla de luna")
the black angel ("el ángel negro")
Complete this lyric from the 2008 album, "Gato negro dragón rojo": "Las chicas de mi barrio llevan..."
"... el sol en la cintura"
"... la luna en el corazón"
"... anillos y collares"
"... nada más que sus pieles"
"Alerta", also from the 2008 album, contains the following lyrics: "Su reino por un amigo / Que le acompañe esta noche / Que pronunciara al oido / Las sílabas de su nombre" ("Her kingdom for a friend / Who will keep her company tonight / Who will whisper into her ear / The syllables of her name"). The girl that the lyrics are talking about is addressed as what?
"Moriría por vos" (from "Estrella de mar"), along with Robinson and Dorian Gray, references an American actor and movie. Which?
Sean Penn in "Dead Man Walking"
Tom Hanks in "Sleepless in Seatlle"
Nicolas Cage in "Leaving Las Vegas"
Ralph Fiennes in "The English Patient"
Despite the first line being, "Aún no apagues la luz / Quiero verla en tus ojos brillar" ("Don't put out the light just yet / I want to see it shining in your eyes"), the song containing those lyrics is about ending a relationship.
