¡Otra semana, otra canción! Esta semana, nosotras tenemos Chino y Nacho’s “Andas En Mi Cabeza”, con Daddy Yankee.
How fun is this one!? Our small town has about 3 restaurants. Three, that is, that are not taco or hamburger chains. (Even those are scarce.) Our favorite is run by a Mexican-American family, and they recently hired a young waitress who struck up a conversation with my wife and me about various Latino groups we all like.
¡Otra miércoles, otra canción! Esta semana, tenemos Jesse & Joy’s “Mi Tesoro”.
Hangin’ with las Hermanas Huertas
Here’s another sweet love song from one of my favorite couple of hermanas (the other being HA-ASH, of course). It’s fun to listen to, fun to watch, and fun to learn with, inasmuch as the lyrics flash across a window full of psychedelic colors and shapes. (Sorry, all you old-timers — no bouncing ball to follow here.)
The tune is upbeat, and Joy’s beautiful voice takes it over the top. Read More
¡Otra semana, otra vídeo de música: Sin Bandera’s “Que Lloro”!
At long last…
I don’t know why this was still sitting around in my drafts drawer. Since September of last year! It’s a lovely song. Sad — “y no te vuelvas si no quieres que lloro por ti, que lloro sin ti” — but beautiful, all the same.
So many of the beautiful songs are sad, and vice versa. Not sure why. Anyway, Read More
Hola amigas. Otra semana, otra vídeo — “Estés Donde Estés” (wherever you are).
This is a song I first encountered about a year back, when I first discovered Ha-Ash. It is the 2nd track on their latest album, Primera Fila — Hecho Realidad. But it debuted 11 years before as the sisters’ second single in 2003, and as the 4th track from their 1st album, Ha-Ash, released the same year.
I am a sucker for melancholy mixed with a driving rhythm, and this number has that in spades, right from the start:
Recuerdo tus besos…
Y en la distancia puedo oír tu voz…
Diciendo que esto no eran una adiós
Buen día, amigas. ¡Otra miércoles, otra canción! Esta semana, tememos “Por Última Vez” (For the Last Time), de Matisse.
La Canción de la Semana
I came across this video back when I started exploring Matisse, after encountering them, originally, as featured artists in the HA-ASH video “Sé Que Te Vas” (22 de junio de 2016). While I fell in love with their style — both musical and visual — from the start upon seeing this very video, I couldn’t bring myself to share it, because, frankly, it’s just too melancholy. (Even for me!) Read More
