O meu tema mais recente “Pirata dos Meus Sonhos”, com video no Youtube, foi uma historieta inspirada pela era dos descobrimentos e pelos navegantes do mar. Criei e escreví a letra, a música, o arranjo musical e a produção do video. Este tema também foi escrito em Espanhol.

O meu tema mais recente Boneca Gira, com video no Youtube, foi uma criação inspirada pelo meu lado sonhador ou de fantasia. Criei e escreví a letra, a música, o arranjo musical e a produção do video. Desde pequena que estava curiosa de saber se as bonecas têm sentimentos.  Então pensei, se eu fosse boneca o que é que eu faria? Agora estou certa que elas têm vida própria!  Tal como as pessoas, elas sonham em amar alguém. Afinal, todas as bonecas querem ser reais, e eu quero ser boneca!

Este tema também foi escrito em Espanhol.

My recent song Boneca Gira, Cute Doll with video in Youtube was a creation inspired by my childish side.  I created the lyrics, music, musical arrangement and the production of the imaginative video.  Since I was a little girl, I was very curious to know if the dolls actually have feelings.  So I thought if I was a doll, what would I do?  Now I am certain that the dolls have their own lives, and just like us they dream of falling in love.  All dolls would like to be real, I want to be a doll!

This song was also written in Spanish.

Céu, Céu Azul | “Blue, Blue Sky” - Stella Jurgen | Music, Lyrics and musical arrangement | Música, Letra e Arranjo Musical

A minha canção chama-se “Céu, Céu Azul” e foi escrita em Português, e depois traduzida em Inglês “Blue, Blue Sky.  Escreví este tema durante o inverno quando a neve cubria os passeios e fazia muito frio aquí no Canadá, a pensar num lugar onde eu gostaria de estar…. Portugal.  Quando a minha alma precisa alimento eu penso em momentos lindos e deixo que a minha imaginação tome conta de tudo.  Eu produzí este video em Oakville, Ontario, Canadá e as fotografias foram tiradas em Portugal durante uma das minhas visitas a Cascais, onde eu morei, Lisboa onde eu frequentei as Belas Artes, e no Algarve onde eu  gosto de aproveitar a praia.  Esta é uma composição da minha autoria, letra, música e arranjo musical, para lhe dar um toque pessoal também produzí o video.

My song is called “Céu, Céu Azul and it was written in Portuguese also known as “Blue, Blue Sky” later translated in English. I wrote this song in winter when the snow covers the sidewalks and when it’s very cold in Canada. I was thinking of a place where I wanted to be…Portugal. When my soul needs nourishment I think of beautiful moments and let my imagination take over.  I produced this music video in Oakville, Ontario, Canada with photography shot in Portugal during one of my visits to Cascais where I lived, Lisbon where I went to Fine Arts and Algarve where I love to enjoy the beach.  I composed and arranged this song just to have a personal touch, and also produced the video.  Enjoy.
