But back to “Puerto Alegria”, let’s say it’s like a pupil of “Copacabana”, without the murderous enigma of the classic. This really is the answer to Barry Manilow’s main inquiry in the song: “they were young and they had each other, who could ask for more?” This conversational song celebrates true love in the most breezy and platonic ways. We tend to drown our own immediate feelings, but when true love shows up, be prepare for those emotions to arise. Sound-wise, let's say it's an accurate depiction of the heartbeat. Love so intense and so pure, it puts you in marriage-mode the minute you see it, “Casate conmigo aquí en Puerto Alegría.”
