Vuestros ojos tienen d'amor no sé qué

composer
author of text

 
Vuestros ojos tienen d’amor no sé qué (‘Your eyes contain I know not what of love’), an anonymous song from Spain, Vuestros ojos was included by Robert Dowland in his Musical Banquet of 1610, a compendium of ‘delicious airs, collected out of the best authors in English, French, Spanish and Italian’, and it is the rhythmic epitome of fashionable melancholy. The je ne sais quoi of love, mentioned in the title, is carried in the beloved’s eyes, which ‘freeze’, ‘rob’, ‘wound’ and even ‘kill’ the watchful lover, producing a paradox of pleasurable persecution: ‘If you look at me, / I blame you.’
