Spanish Stroll by Mink DeVille and Vamos by the Pixies are about the only (partially) Spanish language songs I own.

Thank you! BTW, I love how Argentine and Spanish musicians have always been in tune with each other. Even several famous Argentine musicians have lived (and succeeded) in Spain: Moris, Rubi, Calamaro, Ariel Rot, Federico Aubele... As I said in this thread some months ago, the golden age of Spanish-language pop and rock began in Madrid with two Argentines and three Spaniards in 1978. Tequila!! Thanks to these boys under the "blessed" musical influence of the colossal Chuck Berry and The Rolling Stones, rock in Spanish finally became a massively-successful event for the whole Hispanic world. I still remember that chorus ♫ "Me voy.... me voy... me voy de casaaaaa...." ♫



Me vuelvo loco
("I'm Losing my Mind") and Me voy de casa ("I Leave the Nest")


And in the 90's, Los Rodríguez. Amazing band too:


Mi enfermedad ("My Disease")

"Estoy vencido porque el mundo me hizo así......I've lost heart because the world made me this way.
No puedo cambiar.............I can't change.
Soy el remedio sin receta..........I am the medicine without a recipe
y tu amor mi enfermedad.........and your love is my disease.
Estoy vencido porque el cuerpo de los dos.........I've lost heart because this body, mine and yours,
es mi debilidad........is my weakness.

Esta vez el dolor va a terminar.............This time, pain is gonna end.

(...)"

Punk rock now: Siniestro Total. One of the best (if not the best) bands in the genre. Apart from the already-mentioned "classic" I'll Dance on Your Tomb, here you are a few more hits, with their characteristic mocking tone. These are Asssumpta (who was "a girl from Barcelona") and Pueblos del mundo ("Peoples of the World"):



♫ "Pueblos del mundo: ¡extinguíos!..........Peoples of the World: kill yourselves!
Dejad que continúe la evolución........Let evolution go on.
esterilizad a vuestro hijos........Sterilize your children.
Juntos de la mano..............Let's go together hand in hand
hacia la extinción............towards the extinction.
" ♫


Cuenca minera ("Coal-mining Area") is a funny song about some crazy miners. Hermano, bebe ("Brother, drink") is a brilliant ode to alcohol:


"(...)
Hermano, bebe,............................Drink, brother,
que la vida es breve,......................because life is short,
y aunque a ti no te lo pareciere.......and believe it or not,
el más grande bien........................even the biggest good thing
siempre es pequeño.......................is always small.
No seas berebere, Mohamed...........Don't be a Berber, Muhammad.
(...)"


*Ayatola, no me toques la pirola ("Ayatollah, Don't Piss Me Off", 1982) was "dedicated" to Khomeini (when he prohibited music in Iran). Nowadays we could dedicate it to Ahmadineyad.
*Bueno, pero no empecemos... (an homage to Pulp Fiction)
*http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pPv3-HMkteQ (a sarcastic song about chastity)
*http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GfrjdS0Y_SU
*http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rxPOvgUFCzM
*Cristina...


And now, shoegazing. De la monarquía a la criptocracia ("From Monarchy to Cryptocracy") by Triángulo de Amor Bizarro, and Nunca estás a la altura by Klaus & Kinski:

More top-notch rock: Loquillo (since 1980). This singer's pseudonym refers to the Spanish name for the famous cartoon character Woody Woodpecker. Until 2007 he was accompanied by several musicians, forming the well-known band Loquillo y Trogloditas, one the best acts of the Spanish-language rock scene in the 80's and 90's.



A few examples:

El rompeolas ("The Breakwater") and La mataré ("I'll Kill Her"):



♫ "No hables de futuro,...........Don't talk about the future,
es una ilusión.............that's an illusion
cuando el rock & roll...............since rock & roll
conquistó mi corazón...............won my heart.
" ♫
(El rompeolas)

Cadillac solitario ("Lonely Cadillac") and Cuando fuimos los mejores ("When We Were the Best"):



♫ "Siempre quise ir a L.A.,..........I always wanted to go to L.A.,
dejar un día esta ciudad,..........to leave this town one day,
cruzar el mar en tu compañía...........to cross the sea together with you.

Pero ya hace tiempo que me has dejado.......But it's been long since you left me

y probablemente me habrás olvidado..........and you probably don't remember me anymore.
No sé que aventuras correré sin ti........I don't know what adventures I will have without you.

Y ahora estoy aquí sentado........And now I'm here sitting

en un viejo Cadillac segunda mano..........in an old second-hand Cadillac.


(...)

Quizás el Martini me ha hecho recordar.........Maybe the Martini has woken my memories up.
Nena, ¿por qué no volviste a llamar?...........Baby, why didn't you call me again?
Creí que podía olvidarte sin más..........I thought I could just forget you...


(...)

El amanecer me sorprenderá..................Daybreak will catch me
dormido borracho en el Cadillac,.......sleeping it off in the Cadillac,
bajo las palmeras, dulce y solitario..........under the plam trees, sweet and lonely.
Y dice la gente que ahora eres formal...........And people say you're serious-minded now.
Y yo aquí borracho en el Cadillac,.........And I'm here, drunk in the Cadillac,
bajo las palmeras, dulce y solitario.........under the palm trees, sweet and lonely.
Y no estás tú, nena..........And you're not here, baby....
" ♫

Todo el mundo ama a Isabel ("Everybody Loves Isabel") and Rock & Roll Star:



And (click) Autopista ("Highway"), En las calles de Madrid ("In the Streets of Madrid"), María, La mala reputación ("The Bad Reputation"), Simpatía por los Stones ("Sympathies for the Stones") and many more. As I said, this is a top band. There are several compilations. And they released two excellent live albums too.

* Los Romeos (Spain, 1989-1996; there's an Argentine band also named Los Romeos, of which we''ll talk later on). Rock and power-pop. They only published three albums, but they're full of great songs. Especially the third one, Sin conexión ("Without Conexion", 1996).

Me comeré tu corazón ("I'll Eat your Heart") and Arañas mi piel ("You Scratch my Skin"):



♫ "Me comeré tu corazón,......I'll eat your heart,
me beberé tu sangre.....I'll drink your blood...
" ♫


Mi vida rosa ("My Rose-Colored Life") and Dentro de mí ("Inside of Me"):



♫ "Pienso todo el día en acariciar...........All day I think about caressing
tu dulce cuerpo hasta llegar.........your sweet body until reaching
al reino que ya conocemos.........the kingdom we already know.
" ♫
(Mi vida rosa)


And (click) Déjame caer ("Let Me Fall"), Muérdeme ("Give Me A Little Bite"), Lejos, muy lejos ("Far, Very Far"), Un poquito de amor ("A Little Bit of Love"), Mi cielo ("My Sweetheart") and Sueño loco ("Crazy Dream"), among others.

^ Don't worry, that's not a "musical sin" (at least not a serious one). I admit I like some Juanes' songs too. For instance, these two:



(translations here and here)

And especially this one (translation here):



♫ "Es por tiiiiiiiiiii........" ♫

I enjoyed both of these songs, Zaqarbal.

The punk-like boldness of the "From Monarchy to Cryptocracy" song appealed to me, and the video has some memorable images.

The consistently pretty, almost ethereal sound of Nunca estás a la altura by Klaus & Kinski jangled on in me for quite a few minutes after listening to it. Really, very nice.
