There are two movies my teachers played for us faithfully in school: The Temptations TV movie and Selena. It got to the point where I knew all of the lyrics to every song that appeared in both films, with “Dreaming of You” being my favorite from Selena.
Every time I hear this song I immediately think about the death scene from the biopic, causing me to shed a few thug tears. It’s crazy to think that she was only 23 when she was murdered in ’95. In recent news, her widower, Chris Perez, announced that he has penned a book about his late-wife entitled To Selena, With Love. It really is a shame that her life was cut so short.
R.I.P. to the queen of Tejano music, Selena.
