Aurora: Gracias para compartiendo este video. Es muy interestante.

Deseo que hubiera aprendido español cuando era joven.
Pero nunca es demasiado tarde.

Thanks. I always enjoy hearing about individuals who creatively help people learn. With respect to "Eres tu", I had a little trouble hearing the words because of all the background noise.

Franco de Vita "Te Amo"
Así nos hubieran visto,
Estábamos ahí sentados
Frente a frente.

No podía faltarnos la luna,
Y hablábamos de todo un poco,
Y todo nos causaba risa
Como dos tontos.

Y yo que no veía la hora
De tenerte en mis brazos
Y poderte decir

Te amo
Desde el primer momento en que te vi
Y hace tiempo te buscaba
Y ya te imaginaba así.
Te amo
Aunque no es tan fácil de decir,
Y defino lo que siento
Con estas palabras
Te amo

Y de pronto nos rodeo el silencio,
Y nos miramos fijamente
Uno al otro.

Tus manos entre las mías
Tal vez nos volveremos a ver
Mañana no se si podre
Que estas jugando

Me muero si no te vuelvo a ver
Y tenerte en mis brazos
Y poderte decir

Te amo
Desde el primer momento en que te vi
Y hace tiempo te buscaba
Y ya te imaginaba así...Read More

I watched that very video "Eres tu" countless times. It was one of the first song I learned in Spanish.

Hola amigos,

I've never really heard of Lamas before, but "Eres tú" is a very popular song, specially with Spanish group called "Mocedades", formed by the Uranga brothers, which were very very famous in the 70's and 80's . My parents used to listen to "Eres tú"., "Tómame o déjame", "Amor de hombre" , and "Quién te cantará?.

Other artists from spain that were popular in México (and that my parents still listen to) are Jose Luis Perales("Y como es el" "Un velero llamado libertad","Ay amor" with mocedades), Rocío Durcal("Amor eterno","Como tu mujer", "Me gustas mucho") and Camilo Sesto ("Perdóname", "Jamás", "llueve sobre mojado" and my favorite "Tarde o temprano"), among others artists.


Enjoy some good old spanish music!

Great, I'm listening the to your parent's music...

- "Y como es el". Sad but beautiful.
- "Tómame o déjame". Depressing! Aye. What a contrast with "Eres tú"!
- "Ay Amor". José Luis Perales with Mocedades - what a wonderful combo.
- "Me gustas mucho". Really cute / fun.

Many thanks, Cristian. Please pass on more titles as they come to mind. Listening to these is really expanding my vocabulary. A delightful surprise for me in learning Spanish is just how much I enjoy latin/hispanic music.

Holaaaaa
I'm glad you liked those old love songs (and some sad songs also) from the 70s, and 80's.

Yes! "Tómame o déjame" has some serious and hard lyrics. In the song the woman is telling his husband, basically , that she already knows he is cheating on her, she says "No tienes porque inventar, si tu ropa huele a leña de otro hogar"...You don't have to make up stuff (Of why you are coming home late) because your clothes has the smell of another's house firewood (probably from a chimney).

From Jose Luis Perales, I can remember other nice songs such as "Un bolero para una despedida", and "Quisiera decir tu nombre". My dad had a lot of old records, cassettes and CDs from Jose Luis Perales, and they bring me memories of when I used to drive his pick up truck during a few weeks, because my car was not working, and I listened to a CD from Perales all day long...Read More

My mom is a big fan of Rocio Durcal, she got very sad when Rocio died , back in 2006. Her real name was Maria de los Angeles de las Heras (My mom's name is also Maria de los Angeles). She was from Spain but her success in Mexico made her move to my country and was even known as the "Most mexican spaniard". Juan Gabriel, a very popular mexican songwriter and singer , wrote most of his songs for Rocio to sing them. Other songs from her are: "Como han pasado los años
(great song!!!) "Fue un placer conocerte", "La gata bajo la lluvia", "Fue tan poco tu cariño" and "La muerte del palomo".

Camilo Sesto was liked by both my parents, I probably know the lyrics of all his songs, because Camilo's songs were played a lot in my home when growing up. Even if I am rock and heavy metal fan , I must admit I am a big fan of Camilo Sesto. I think he has some songs with Rocio Durcal. His songs are very passionate and some are heartbreaking. My favorite songs are "Tarde o temprano", "Melina", "Vivir así, es morir de amor", "Has nacido libre", "Donde estés y con quien estés" and "Con el viento a tu favor"(I love the sound of the mandolins in the back) .

Enjoy!

While I was in Manila, I was listening in you tube a rendition of "Eres Tu" being sung by a Korean singer. It is a big place and what's interesting is the audience singing their heart out with "Eres tu"
