Madonna 在電影 Evita 中的 “Don't Cry for Me Argentina”
阿根廷人在首都布宜諾思艾利斯，修建了一個 伊娃貝隆 的像在某大廈前，來紀念這位短命的女士。
【The Telegraph】President Cristina Kirchner, who often invokes Evita's memory in speeches to supporters, unveiled the forged steel portrait that covers one side of the health ministry building three months ahead of a presidential election in which she is running for a second term.
"She was the most hated but the most loved, the most offended, insulted and discounted but the most venerated – the most humiliated but today eternally victorious," the president said. "She taught us that to confront the powerful carries a high price."
The giant Evita image, which is 31 meters (100 feet) tall and 24 meters (79 feet) wide, looks down on the busy avenue that cuts across the centre of downtown Buenos Aires, depicting a glamorous Evita with her trademark topknot hairstyle.
Evita, an actress who married late president Juan Peron, is adored by many Argentines for helping women get the vote, securing labour benefits for the working classes and founding hospitals and orphanages.
"Eva Peron is an authentic cultural and historical icon for all Argentines," Mrs Kirchner said at the Tuesday evening inauguration, during which she referred to the late first lady in almost religious terms.
而 Evita 就是 伊娃·貝隆 María Eva Duarte de Perón ，也讓我認識到一首好歌：『不要為我哭泣, 柯珍天娜！』之後有套電影由 娜姐主演的 Evita，也是用 Don't cry for me Argentina 做 theme song 主題曲。
【維基百科】Evita 是前阿根廷 貝隆總統的妻子，她在 1952年便因癌病，在布宜諾斯艾利斯逝世，死時年僅 33歲。
之後 伊娃·貝隆 遺體被防腐保存，並陳列在一個紀念館中。1955年貝隆總統被一次軍事政變推翻後伊娃·貝隆 的遺體首先被運往意大利米蘭，16年後即1971年被移送到西班牙。
伊娃·貝隆 的一生，在英國音樂舞臺劇 Evita 音樂劇中得到再現，後來更被改編為電影和連續劇，在被改編成的電影中，由著名搖滾歌星 麥當娜 飾演 伊娃·貝隆 的 Evita 電影是最廣為人知的作品。
聽 Evita (soundtrack) 當然是不可缺少的了，插曲《You Must Love Me》也是膾炙人口的好歌，而主題曲：《Don't Cry for Me, Argentina》可以一聽再聽！
如今阿根廷人還沒有忘記 Evita 貝隆夫人，而現今的阿根廷的女總統 Cristina Kirchner 也需要借助 貝隆夫人，謀取她的第二個總統任期。
Suzan Erens 與 André Rieu 合作的版本
Don't Cry For Me Argentina (Evita) lyrics Andrew Lloyd Webber It won't be easy You'll think it strange When I try to explain how I feel That I still need your love After all that I've done You won't believe me All you will see Is a girl you once knew Although she's dressd up to the nines At sixes and sevens with you I had to let it happen I had to change Couldn't stay all my life down at heel Looking out of the window Staying out of the sun So I chose freedom Running around trying everything new But nothing impressed me at all I never expected it too Don't cry for me Argentina The truth is I never left you All through my wild days My mad existence I kept my promise Don't keep your distance And as for fortune and as for fame I never invited them in Though it seemed to the world They were all I desired They are illusions They're not the solutions They promise to be The answer was here all the time I love you and hope you love me Don't cry for me Argentina Don't cry for me Argentina The truth is I never left you All through my wild days My mad existence I kept my promise Don't keep your distance Have I said to much? There's nothing more I can think of to say to you But all you have to do Is look at me to know That every word is true 細讀歌詞令我深思，整首歌詞像是一篇演說，政治人物講的有幾多成真呢？ 結尾：『Have I said to much？ There's nothing more I can think of to say to you. But all you have to do is look at me to know that every word is true.』 後後補： You must Love me 伊娃貝隆 患上不治之症 伸延閱覽： Evita Peron statue unveiled in Buenos Aires telegraph.co.uk Eva Perón 谷歌搜尋 伊娃·貝隆 維基百科 María Eva Duarte de Perón 維基百科 Evita 電影 維基百科 Evita 音樂劇 維基百科 Evita (original soundtrack) 維基百科
