Incredible Beauty: Erika Marozsán in Gloomy Sunday
Discovered this incredible beauty: Erika Marozsán (born 1972).
The song she sings is Gloomy Sunday. (1933)
“Gloomy Sunday” is a song composed by Hungarian pianist and composer Rezső Seress in 1933, as Vége a világnak (End of the world), with alternate Szomorú vasárnap (Hungarian pronunciation: [ˈsomoruː ˈvɒʃaːrnɒp]) (Sad Sunday) lyrics written by László Jávor. The original lyrics depicted a war-stricken Hungary and a silent prayer to God. Jávor's lyrics are a mourning to a lost lover and a pledge to commit suicide to meet said lover again in the afterlife.
The song has been sung by several singers. I first heard of it by Sarah Brightman in around 2000.
