A Telenovela's Soundtrack-Part III: Stories' Musical Themes

(Note: Since blogging is new for me, please forgive the clumsiness of my links to music. They will open in a new window and may take a bit to load. With some browsers, the link might not work the first time you click on it. Try again, please)

Just like the most important characters may have their own musical theme, the main storylines also do. Some of these aren't written specifically for a particular plot or telenovela, but work well, nevertheless.

For example, Roque Valero's Ando de Puntillas became the theme of Patria Mía and Vicente in Cosita Rica.

There are themes, though, that are composed with a specific plot in mind. Below, two examples:

In Cosita Rica, Frank Quintero wrote Ella Dos Veces, for the story of Cacique, Verónica and María Suspiro.

In Ciudad Bendita, Roque Valero composed Cuando te Miro, for the love story of Juan and Bendita, the protagonists.
