Hola, amigas. ¿Están listas para otra canción de la semana? Si es así, ¡nosotros darte “Aparador”, de Paty Cantú, con María Barracuda y Niña Dioz!
This week’s canción (if you’ll pardon my Spanglish, as you usually do) is one I had never stumbled across on YouTube before receiving it as a Christmas gift this year on the Paty Cantú album, La Más Completa Colección (link for purchase below). As with last week’s pick, I noticed that I was recognizing more and more of the lyrics (letras) and leaning on sites like Google Translate and LyricsTranslate.com less and less. ¡Qué chévere!
Paty, along with María and Niña, are singing about how people demand that they conform to the mold most celebrities (esp. female) are expected to fit — appearance-wise, anyway. But she’s not an “aparador” (a store window) — she’s “a voice, a sound, a song, both to love and to pain”. Well, I’m not sure who ticked her off, but she and her girls are stompin’ mad about it, and that’s a good thing, since this number really gets the feet moving!
Well, that’s it for this week. I hope to update you a bit on my progress using Duolingo this weekend. But for now…
¡Hasta luego, amigas!
