Buenos días, amigas. ¡Otra miércoles, otra canción! Esta semana, os traemos Maná’s “Mi verdad” (“My Truth”) — un dúo con Shakira.
Divergence on Shakira
My day-job boss and I usually enjoy some of the same tunes. Not always, but sometimes. A couple of days ago, though, I came across this Maná-Shakira combo and IM’ed him the link. His response? “Shakira’s voice is like nails on a chalkboard to me.”
Well, that’s not this case with esta gemela, I assure you! Read More
Buenos días, amigas. ¡Otra miércoles, otra canción! Esta semana, os traemos HA-ASH’s “¿De Dónde Sacas Eso?” (“Where Do You Get That?”).
Sacar: to take out, to remove
This week’s canción features, yet again, the verb “sacar” (conjugated sacas herein), in its lyrics. The word is quite the chameleon, being used to express ideas from “remove” to “leave” to, in this case, “get/understand”. Versatile; eh? The lyrics in this one are quite clever, reminding us somewhat (in spirit) of those in “Perdón Perdón“:
Buenos días, amigas. ¡Otra miércoles, otra canción! Esta semana, os traemos Paty Cantú’s “Clavo Que Saca Otro Clavo” (“Nail That Drives Out Another”).
Hooked on Paty (y Lu, también)
Recently, I have been listening to a lot of Lu and Paty Cantú. Stands to reason, I guess, since I purchased a couple of albums of their work recently and have been testing my ripping software. (Side note: While I love using Linux in most cases, it’s working with AV that makes me miss my MacBook at times.)
Paty’s voice grew on me. That is, when I first heard her, I liked her. One of the first few videos I shared was actually a Paty Cantú hit called “Suerte“, as a matter of fact.
¡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
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
