Enrique Iglesias plays Enrique Iglesias
A youtube found footage classic.
How many times did you give it a listen?
The original.
And the original.
Enough to have it as a new take on Echo and Narcissus?

Echo - the beautiful and the speechless. Repeating.
Narcissus - the beautiful and the appearing. Mirroring.

Their ancient conversation is well known.

Who's there?
Who's there?
Why do you run from me?
Why do you run from me?
Let's meet.
Let's meet.
May I die before what's mine is yours?
What's mine is yours?

Their recent interaction is known even better.

All I need is to look in your eyes.
Look in your eyes.
Say you'll be mine.
Be mine.
I will follow you wherever you may be.
You may be.

Some people ask if it is really him singing?
Well, I always wonder which version they mean.
Here comes one of them.

Art work by Thomas Hauri

It is no more than half a dozen of words. That will do to overwrite three tales of Italo Calvino’s invisible cities and contemplate Warszawa emerging. It instantly embraces Maurilia, Zirma and Ersilia. It makes their new geography. They reterritorialize. They distend and fit the turnpikes of Warszawa. We follow.
