Mi amigo, Federico, randomly dropped a fun multilingual song in my comments and so that got me thinking of my favorite Spanglish songs. Here they are! Be sure to leave yours in comments! Please be aware, most of these songs are not appropriate for niños. There is strong language in some songs, and music videos in general, even if the language isn’t strong, tend to objectify women, so please use discretion.
Kevin Johansen + The nada – Guacamole (Gracias, Federico!)
Me gustas tú by Manu Chao
Frijolero by Molotov (WARNING: Very strong language)
You ready for some old skool? That’s It/Ya Estuvo by Kid Frost
Señorita by Los Lonely Boys
Electro Movimiento by Calle 13 …This song came out last year, but it is puro 1980’s in style.
Pitbull featuring Akon – Shut It Down
Rico Suave by Gerardo … Ay. Dios. Mio. Qué raunchy! I was like 10 years old when this song came out. I didn’t understand the lyrics back then but was fascinated by the video. I can’t believe my parents let me watch MTV at that age.
Cha Cha by Chelo
Stand by Me by Prince Royce
Dejalo Ahi by Fulanito
Yo Digo Baila by Mexican Institute of Sound
If You Want it by Pacha Massive
Okay, now which Spanglish songs do you like? Díme in comments!
