MOODYMedia's theme for this week is:
Nada. It's a freebie. ;) LOL...
So since I'm heavily immersed in augmenting my Spanish lessons right now, I'm constantly singing in Spanish, speaking, thinking, eating, writing, and breathing that language. All of my songs today will be in the beautiful Spanish language, peeps. Let's see if I can find a few that I have been singing for ya!
While I was in college a la Universidad de Miami, my Mexican/Colombian friend Victor gave me a tape of Timbiriche, and this song was on it. After I learned the female parts to "Muriendo Lento" (or "Dying Slowly"), the two of us would hang out in my dorm room and sing it at the top of our lungs, full of feeling and heart. Haha! We probably drove my neighbors nuts. Victor was an unrequited love, alas, and we have since ended the friendship over our political differences, but the song - if you can get past the cheesy dancing - is a good one. Give it a listen.

"La Rana" (or, "The Frog") is a totes magotes adorbs song that I learned in my AP Spanish class, back in high school 20 years ago! I've never forgotten it. Basically, it's a cute kids' song where the frog starts singing, and a fly comes along and makes him shut up. Then a spider comes along when the fly starts singing, and makes him shut up. Then a rat to the spider, a cat to the rat, a dog to the cat, and a man to the dog, each in turn shutting the one below it up as it starts to sing. Finally, when the mother-in-law comes along and starts to sing, not even the devil could shut her up! jajajaja

That's all I can find, because I don't know the titles of the others I've been singing and don't feel like going on a lyric hunt! Maybe next freebie day I'll be a little less lazy. ;)
As an aside, it's really irritating to me that the YouTube page keeps telling me the page is in Spanish and asks if I want it translated to English. NO! I don't need that, thanks!
Reminds me of the old joke:
Q: What do you call someone who speaks three languages?
A: Tri-lingual (or multi-lingual)
Q: What do you call someone who speaks two languages?
Q: And what do you call someone who speaks one language?
Gah. iNo puedo soportar mas!
(I know I'm missing accent marks there, too, but my brain doesn't remember which ALT code that is at present, and again, I'm lazeeeeee.)

Now go! Listen and enjoy, and visit and stuff. See ya...
