If like me you’ve been Netflix bingeing on Narcos the past few weeks, you would not have been able to escape the awesome opening theme “Tuyo” by Brazilian, Rodrigo Amarante.
Apart from that glorious opening number, everything about this series is HOTTT, the plot, dialogue, the ladies and the rest of the music too! For me it’s up there with The Soprano’s and Breaking Bad as one of the all-time greats
So here’s a bunch of covers, edits and remixes of that awesome opening number but before that, the amazing lyrics:
I am the fire that burns your skin,
Soy el fuego que arde tu piel
I am the water that kills your thirst.
soy el agua que mata tu sed.
Of the castle, I am the tower,
El castillo, la torre yo soy
the sword that guards the treasure.
la espada que guarda el caudal.
You, the air that I breathe,
tu el aire que respiro yo
and the light of the moon on the sea.
y la luz de la luna en el mar.
The throat that longs to be choked
La garganta que ansio mojar
that I’m afraid I’ll drown in love.
que temo ahogar de amor.
And which desires you are going to give me.
y cuales deseos me vas a dar
just to look is treasure enough,
mi tesoro basta con mirarlo,
it will be yours, it will be yours.
tuyo será, y tuyo será.
Let’s start with the original in all its glory:

A darker Tech-House edit and I love what they did with this one too:

Really love the vaudeville vibe of this:
There’s a thousand more I bet but let’s end with the official soundtrack to the series that you can buy from most digi stores;
Silver or Lead?
