Happy Monday and welcome to the dance floor. You may remember me writing last week about how music unites us. That regardless of how we look, think or live when music is at play we are as one. Well music also is universal in language.
Think back have you ever heard a song on the radio with lyrics in another language? Or maybe gone to an opera where the songs are sung in italian or latin? You may now have understood the words but you enjoyed the music. It most likely made you feel something.
You see we don’t always have to understand the lyrics for the music to take away. the beauty is in how we feel when we hear it. Maybe it makes us feel sad because it reminds us of something. Then again it could make you feel happy and you want to get up and dance.
Whatever the feeling you get music can take you on a ride. I once read a quote by Hans Christian Anderson that read “Where words fail, music speaks.” this is so true. So today I thought I would introduce you to some of the music I’ve enjoyed by artist that don’t’ always sing in english.
Ricky Martin ~ La Mordidita
Nena ~ 99 Luftballons
Falco ~ Rock me Amadeus
Vanessa Paradis ~ Commando
Let’s Talk; Who are you listening to today? Is there an artist that doesn’t sing in english that you enjoy?
