Dare I ask what kinds of movies you've been watching?
That was an unexpected crossover that just can't be ùnseen. (No matter how hard one tries!) Had to detox from that disco nightmare!
Good Bad Weird:
Magnificent Seven 2016:
Blood and sand (not combat):
Sword fight montage (not just one movie):
Crimes of Grinwald
In Her Eyes
Probably others I forgot about
I do understand why Nina Simone and Eric Burdon and Joe Cocker (reggae) and other versions are preferable for some movies.
I don’t really understand why anyone wouldn’t like the flamenco version, but then some people don’t understand why I don’t like cantaloupe. There is no explaining taste.
“Flamenco” comes from the Spanish word for “Flemish”.
During the time when the Netherlands were subject to the Spanish crown, the Flamenco stomp was part of the Flemish fencing style. Adding it to a dance was something that happened; and Spaniards liking it and imitating it was also something that happened.
So maybe it makes sense that some flamenco tune would get associated with cinematic sword fights.
Why this one in particular, though?
