A couple more special songs

Standard

The slide guitar at the beginning of this song is so beautiful it almost hurts. The arrangement is breathtaking.

This one is raw and powerful. Even before I worked out all the Spanish lyrics I still bawled my eyes out!

There are some much more upbeat ones too (they’re from Shakira’s 1998 MTV Unplugged concert/album), but these are my two favourites of the moment.

  1. Nice selections, especially the second one, and I don’t bother working out the lyrics.

    Shakira’s voice is awesome. She’s also a beautiful dancer. This is my favorite Shakira video. Her Arabic heritage comes out here:

    • Yes, I like her Arabic dancing too! And her voice is amazing.
      The lyrics of “Inevitable” turned out to be really powerful and special, but maybe just for me. 😉
