Starfucker (yes, that’s the band’s name) released this song in 2008, but it still gives me shivers in 2011. Named after Queen Isabella I of Castile who helped lay down the foundations for Spain’s unification. A beautiful song for such a strong figure.
A couple quotes about her taken from Wikipedia:
Of her, contemporaries said:
- Fernández de Oviedo: “To see her speak was divine.”
- Fray Francisco Jiménez de Cisneros, her confessor, praised “her purity of heart, her big heart and the grandness of her soul”.
