[Music] Astor Piazzolla – Woe

I have a love/hate relationship with the music of Astor Piazzolla.  His music is stunning and sensual, but, as I’m sure many of you have done, I tied the artist to a person who left my life 5 years ago.  Still, as I prepare to enter my 46th year in a few hours, it’s time to remove all melancholy and prepare for a fresh year in my life.

[Music] Luisa Ereno – Oblivion

I’ve heard some incredible versions of Astor Piazzolla’s ‘Oblivion’, some leaving a rather nasty bit of nostalgia with them. But of all the versions I’ve checked out, I’ve not once heard lyrics with it. This version, sung by Luisa Ereno, turns out to be quite a treat.

[Video/Animation] Astor Piazzolla – Oblivion (Ryan Woodward, animation)

An extremely bittersweet composition by nuevo tango master Astor Piazzolla, tied to a lot of memories, some good, many bad and tragic. The animation done by Ryan Woodward is quite touching – tasteful and appropriate for this piece.
