Listen to the girl As she takes on half the world Moving up and so alive In her honey dripping beehive Beehive It's good, so good, it's so good So good Walking back to you Is the hardest thing that I can do That I can do for you For you I'll be your plastic toy I'll be your plastic toy For you Eating up the scum Is the hardest thing for Me to do Just like honey

Ya no puedo más No sé cómo explicarlo Miro alrededor No te veo a mi lado Y no sé por qué me tuviste que dejar Sin ninguna explicación Sin poder decirte adiós Busco en el cajón Todos tus regalos Cierro el corazón A nuevos fracasos Y no sé por qué me tuviste que dejar Sin ninguna explicación Sin poder decirte adiós Algo que te haga olvidar (algo que te haga olvidar) Y que no te pueda recordar (y que no te pueda recordar) Es mejor no vernos nunca más Por qué me tuviste que dejar Sin ninguna explicación Sin poder decirte adiós

L'autre soir je t'attendais Quand un garçon s'est approché Il a vu que je pleurais Il a voulu me consoler Tout le temps qu'il me parlait C'est à toi que je pensais C'était lui qui me parlait Mais c'était toi que j'entendais Mon Dieu faut-il que je t'aime Faut-il que je t'aime Pour te dire ça Mon Dieu faut-il que je t'aime Faut-il que je t'aime Pour te dire ça Il était tellement gentil Vive les vacances et c'est parti On a été au karting Au driving et au bowling Tout le temps qu'on s'amusait C'est à toi que je pensais C'était toi qui étais là C'était lui qui n'y était pas Mon Dieu faut-il que je t'aime Faut-il que je t'aime Pour te dire ça Mon Dieu faut-il que je t'aime Faut-il que je t'aime Pour te dire ça Quand il m'a raccompagné Il aurait voulu m'embrasser Mais je lui ai expliqué Que j'étais presque fiancée Juste un baiser sur la joue Bonne nuit merci beaucoup C'était lui que je quittais Mais c'était toi qui me manquais Mon Dieu faut-il que je t'aime Faut-il que je t'aime Pour te dire ça Mon Dieu faut-il que je t'aime Faut-il que je t'aime Pour te dire ça

Um amor que se acabou, um romance terminou Mas não é o fim, não e o fim para mim Faça como eu, leva a vida a cantar Sempre que houver canção para se cantar eu canto Cante e esqueça a solidão, a vida é toda sua Prometo assim mesmo tentar esquecer O que de ruim acontece a você Então cante, é o jeito de viver Em paz consigo mesmo Cante si há musica no ar Não há porque chorar Cante, cante sempre uma canção Que fale só de amor E esqueça os problemas que a vida nos da Agora o momento é o que o tempo desfaz Então cante sempre que houver canção E tudo mais vai melhorar Um amor que se acabou, um romance terminou Mas não é o fim, não é o fim para mim Faça como eu, leva a vida a cantar Sempre que houver canção para se cantar eu canto Cante, cante sempre uma canção Que fale só de amor E esqueça os problemas que a vida nos da Agora o momento é o que o tempo desfaz Então cante sempre que houver canção E tudo mais vai melhorar

There were so many times When my hands needed care Your were there to protect them And the nights I was low When my faith was too small Your were right there to save it From the iced days of Christmas To the warmth of July You've been always so gentle Though I'm not always easy You've been always so mild I just wanted to thank you For being here by my side When my hands needed care Your were there to protect them And for singing my songs With the voice that I love You're my favourite boyfriend Though I'm not always easy You've been always so mild I just wanted to thank you For being here by my side When my hands needed care Your were there to protect me

Today you pushed my heart around Because we're always on the ground Today you tried to hold me down But tomorrow things will change When I'm an aeroplane I'll leave you standing the rain When I'm an aeroplane You won't see me again When I'm an aeroplane I'll leave you waiting for the train When I'm an aeroplane You won't see me again Today I'm just a little car You stop me from getting very far Today I might be where you are But tomorrow I'll be gone When I'm an aeroplane I'll leave you standing in the rain When I'm an aeroplane You won't see me again

I used to kiss him just for fun I didn't have my head straight Every tear's a lesson learned That's what my mama said I thought I found what I thought I'd lost I didn't have my head straight Every tear's a lesson learned That's what my mama said Days by his side I know they are gone Oh so gone I used to kiss him just for fun I used to kiss him just for fun Just for fun He used to talk in his sleep at night He never mentioned my name Every tear's a lesson learned That's what my mama said Days by his side I know they are gone Oh so gone Thoughts of my mind I know they are wrong Oh so wrong I used to kiss him just for fun I used to kiss him just for fun Just for fun I used to kiss him just for fun I used to kiss him just for fun Just for fun I'm running out of love

“You Are The One” is a delicacy - moving and enjoyable. Cristina Quesada and her delicious voice give us a good handful of extraordinary minutes on this first album, which is a diverse and incredible collection, with a ton of covers and some original songs. The album is lucky enough to include a fantastic collaboration with Javi and Coral from BAND À PART and Luis Elefant. Cristina uses the songs that she has hand-selected by other artists and creates her own world with them, one that is as delicate as her way of singing is. And that is how she gives us this “You Are The One”, which is beyond a shadow of a doubt a huge delight to even the most stubborn music lovers.

Opening the album with a cover of “Just Like Honey”, revealing the similarities of THE JESUS & MARY CHAIN song with Phil Spector’s “Be My Baby”, is like betting on the winning horse right from the start. The song is two minutes full of intensity and sweetness, arranged with the wisdom of a goldsmith. After that comes “Ya No Puedo Más”, a previously unreleased song by our beloved NIZA, which was recorded along with the demos for that “Canciones De Temporada” and now stands here as an acoustic folk-pop delicacy with delicious arrangements. And since she dared to sing the first song in English, only to jump to Spanish for the next one, the third song on the album is “Faut-Il Que Je T'Aime”, an original song by France Gall that sounds really good dressed up in techno-pop with some baroque bursts that were made especially for this occasion - a French classic from the 60s reinterpreted in the purest early-80s, French techno-pop style. An unexpected surprise widens the breadth and range of an album that showed very early on its total lack of musical prejudices. A proper musical homage, and it’s like an ode written by a singer who has been proving her devotion since she started playing the violin at 7 years old. And, as if there were any doubt, the time for Portuguese has come, with a version of ABBA, “Cante (Enquanto Houver Canção)”, that passes through a bossa sieve with the same ease that flows through the melodies and the impeccable arrangements on the whole album. To close the A-side, a new surprise, a tremendous version of “My Favourite Girlfriend” by MILKYWAY, from the album of demos that Guille released just a few years ago.

The B-side opens with its super famous cover of “Pineapple Princess”, which gave her debut single - which sold out so quickly - its title. Though this time, the ukulele lets some of the spotlight go to the casiotones, the space effects, and the drum kits, so that we can travel at the speed of light to the center of Shibuya. Delicious and fun. We almost forgot about Italian! “Cielo” represents our Latin neighbors, written at the time by LITTLE PEGGY MARCH and arranged by none other than Ennio Morricone. And then Brazil gives us color again with an evocative, sunny, and summery song that has always been on Elefant’s list of favorites. “When I'm An Aeroplane” is the first of the original songs, written by Cristina Quesada herself and by Paul Bevoir, with a catchy chorus and celestial arrangements. And, did you think that we were going to leave J-pop out of this 11-song world-tour? Agnes Chan wrote “Hinageshi No Hana” in 1972 and Cristina, who isn’t afraid of any language, revives it in a magnificent soul-pop exercise. One of our current favorite groups, ALPACA SPORTS, also has some room on here with “Just For Fun”, which Paul collaborates on, playing the ukulele. And to close the album, we have another song by Cristina and Paul, the one that gives the album its name, “You Are The One”. It’s a marvelous song that would fit right in on a Christmas album by THE RONETTES, with echoes of Bacharach’s pianos, sung by Cristina in English and Spanish, and it even has Andreas Jonsson of ALPACA SPORTS singing choruses. As if there was any doubt that music knows no linguistic boundaries, “You Are The One” proves itself to be an exquisite and necessary journey through different countries, languages, and styles of music, thanks to Cristina’s magical voice and Javi and Coral’s hard work in the BAND À PART laboratory. It’s an enormous demonstration of the love of music, without limits and without restrictions.
