ana maría gonzález, josé mojíca & silvana roth – solamente una vez (1942)

Solamente una vez“, written by Agustin Lara, was first recorded by Ana María González & José Mojíca (January 21,1942). An English version of the song was recorded a few years later by Dora Luz, as “You belong to my heart“, which was used in Disney’s The Three Caballeros, but the lyrics are really lost in translation.

walt disney & salvador dalí – destino (1946/2003)

Why had I never heard of this?! In 1946 Disney and Dalí conceived this animated story of Chronos, the personification of time who falls in love with a mortal.

Dalí described the film as “a magical display of the problem of life in the labyrinth of time”. Disney called it “a simple story about a young girl in search of true love.”

The song is performed by Dora Luz.
