What’s that one song in the “Latin” music genre that sets your blood on fire? You know what I’m talking about… that song that makes you break out those pretend salsa moves, while the self projected image of yourself- the one who is a Dancing With the Stars contestant- moves across the stage . OK, maybe that’s just me. But then again I’d like to think that I’m not the only one that fits that description…
Apart from the enjoyment factor though, music also has educational value for me. Most- or maybe all of the songs that I listen to- have served the purpose of helping me to master Spanish. After singing these songs a few hundred times you would pick up a word or two in Spanish as well, believe me!
Below I will share a few of the songs that I find irresistible. They help me to get my head in the zone (think Sean Paul), and I can’t help singing along and busting a move or two when I hear them. Enjoy!
This list is nowhere close to being exhaustive! I could go on for forever and not come to the end of my list of favourite songs, but time (and sleep) have formed an alliance against me, so I will give up for now. I hope they got you dancing or at least tapping your feet, even though some of them may not be the more well-known songs from the “Latin” genre.
