Spanish songs | To be fluent


I love music.

I sing in the shower. I sing in the car. I sing while walking the dog - although I do not try to sing too loud, so I do not make my neighbors nervous.

So it seemed logical that I should learn Spanish through songs. >

Music fits perfectly into any language study schedule, regardless of how much or how little you practice each day. Every week, I choose a Spanish-language song. I spend a few minutes on the first day working my way through the lyrics, and then I just listen to it twice every day for the rest of the week. If you do not already use music in your language study, then you would like to know how to do it.

Might want to start! Every Friday, I'll post youtube video of a Spanish song, along with the lyrics in both Spanish and English. I try to listen to a wide variety of styles, so if you do not like this song, come back next Friday to listen to something else.

* Please note: Actually Translating the song (using a combination of the words in my head, translations that I find online, Google translate and a Spanish-English dictionary) is a big part of my learning. I'm a student of Spanish, and a fairly new one at that. This is ongoing work, so I hope you will correct any errors or share any insight into the meaning of the original song. Or if you want to translate it yourself, I would love to compare our versions!

Sanz

Ay payita mia, guardate poetry
Keep yourself happy pa'ti < / P>

Baby, keep your poetry
Keep your joy to yourself Shakira

I do not ask that every day be sunny
I do not ask everyone Friday is a holiday
I'm not asking you to come back begging forgiveness
If you cry with dry eyes
And talking about her
Ay love hurts so much

It hurts me so much

Shakira

That you went without saying where
> Ay amor was a torture
Losing you

That you left without saying where
Oh my love, it was like torture
Losing you

>

I know I have not been a saint
But I can fix it, love

I know that I have not been a saint
But I can fix it, my love < / P>

Shakira

Not only bread lives the man
And no excuses alive I

Man does not live on bread alone and I Do not live on excuses

Sanz

Only mistakes are learned
And today I know that my heart is yours

We only learn from our mistakes
And now I know that my heart is yours

Shakira

You better guard all that
Another dog with that bone
And we say goodbye > I can not ask for the winter to forgive a rosebush
I can not ask the elm trees to deliver pears
I can not ask the eternal to a mere mortal
And walk throwing the pigs thousands of pearl S

You're best to keep all that to yourself
Give that bone to another dog and let's say good-bye
I can not ask that winter give a rosebush < Br> I can not ask that an elm bear pears
I can not ask the eternal from a mere mortal
And walk about casting thousands of pearls before the swine

Sanz

Oh my love, it hurts so much
It hurts me so much
Do not believe in my promises

Sanz Do not go down, do not go down
Hey, darling look, do not cut yourself
From Monday to Friday you have my love
Leave me on my Saturday that is better
Hear me Black do not punish me anymore
Because out there without you I do not have peace
I'm just a very repentant man
I'm like the bird that returns to its nest
I know I have not been a saint < Is not made of cardboard

Do not go, do not go
Listen baby, look, do not back down
From Monday to Friday you have my love < I'm only a very repentant man
I'm just a very repentant man
I'm not alone, I like the bird that returns to its nest
I know That I have not been a saint
But I'm not made of stone (cardboard)

Shakira

Shakira

Everything I've done for you
It was torture to lose you
It hurts so much that it is so
Keep on crying forgiveness
I'm not going to cry over you anymore

Everything that I did for you
It was like torment losing you
It hurts me so much that it's like this
Keep crying for forgiveness
I will not cry for you anymore < / P>

A few notes:

The words "black" and "bold" were jarring to me when I first read them. According to the ever-trusty Google, it seems that in Columbia and other parts of Latin America, they are often used the terms of endearment - like "baby" or "sweetheart".

There's a part of This song that I simply can not sing , no matter how often I try. The bit about the dog and the bone is fast .

Do you know any great Spanish songs that I should add to my list? I'm always looking for new music!
