Default Latin love songs

Nobody does love drama like the latin do love drama! And since I'm practically married to a latin guy, I've been exposed to quite a lot of this stuff. I'll be putting some of my favorites here.

Spanish drama:
Camilo Sesto


Jose Luis Perales


Mexican drama:
Juan Gabriel (huge gay icon)

(last 5 minutes are basically a mariachi freakout)

Italians singers are on the place for me.

^^ Both great songs, but I would say the second one does not fall under the thread theme, since he is singing about his love of being Italian.

Speaking of Italian love songs, here's a beaut:

Riccardo Cocciante:


Italians have a thing for rough vocals I guess.

You're right.

Richard not Riccardo
If you know Eels - That Look You Give That Guy



Edit : This one does not fall under the thread theme too. At least, it's a love song.
Sorry

Oh I think it qualifies, I mean it's a love song and technically the French and Italian are latin too (although I have to confess I was only thinking of Spanish language songs).

Thanks, it's quite lovely.

Something contemporary (although it's a cover of an older song):

Rosalía 'Me quedo contigo' :

The vocal range, pronunciation, words terminaisons and others details are way different. It's why french is not exactely on the same category. It's a latin language spoks by a mix of celts, germans and romans peolples.
