|Mísia - Senhora da noite||
despite the great resistance observed in the tradicional fado circuits.
The lyrics however are not from the "traditional" fado repertoire, but were written by poets selected by Mísia or purposely wrote for her. So, for the instrumental classic "Fado violetas" are words by the poet Florbela Espanca who died in 1930 and for "Ulissipo" a poem by Rosa Lobato de Faria.
For the title track, on the music by the iconic guitarist Armandinho, Hélia Correia wrote about a mysterious woman in the night, "Tarde longa" by Lidia Jorge, is about love, and indeed almost all of the pieces. Mísia has only on music of Fado Menor, "O manto rainha" a self-authored text. Stands out on the Fado Corrido the cheerful "Garras dos sentidos II", that says the "passions are a joyful celebration of tears." The reversion to the classical repertoire is enhanced by a cheerful potpourri of traditional fado with texts of the "eternal queen" of fado, Amália Rodrigues.
