Noche De Ronda (Nightwatch)
Agustín Lara, born in Veracruz, Mexico, has expressed the sorrow of unrequited love with a sensibility that no other composer has been able to emulate. He loved women, bohemian life and beautiful melodies. Married to María Félix (and a few other beauties), he wrote more than 600 songs, many of which have become classics of the Latin repertoire, including "Noche de Ronda." Some Mexican music historians believe that the song was inspired by Lara's anguish while waiting for María Félix's arrival one night.
