I’ve been wanting to post for a while some of my favourite non-English songs, so here is a selection of just five… I may do this regularly to share what I’ve found. (Yes, some of these are recent chart hits.. but they’re catchy and on my list to stay.)
1. Échame la culpa – Luis Fonsi & Demi Lovato
A funky, upbeat tune that you won’t be able to resist dancing to (however badly, no judgement here).
2. Despacito – Luis Fonsi feat. Daddy Yankee
You knew this was coming. And you’ve probably already heard it but it doesn’t mean you are impervious to how fun this song is!
3. Sofia – Alvaro Soler
A song I happened upon by chance in an Italian playlist last summer. Reminded me why I learned Spanish in the first place.
4. Havana – Camila Cabello feat. Daddy Yankee
This is the actual Spanish version with Daddy Yankee, and is in fact even more amazing than the original.
5. Porque te vas – Jeanette
An odd little song that I discovered back in second year while enduring the film Cria Cuervos… the film is an acquired taste but the song is enjoyable. (This video has the text so you can sing along. Also with a French translation).
And that’s that. For now. Doing this has reminded me from a bunch of other songs that I want to share, next time for sure.
