5 New(er) Songs for Spanish Class

I’m back after a bit of a break! Hopefully, I can share some ideas with all of you as often as I can, however, my personal life is about to get a bit more hectic because I’m expecting!

Here are 5 new(er) songs that my students have been really enjoying. 

  1.  “La Bicicleta” por Shakira
    • My students love this song! I was a little more hesitant to show the original music video, because there is a bit more skin showing and hips moving than I feel comfortable with. However, this Just Dance is an awesome way to get the kids up and moving while listening to the music.
  2. “Los Charcos” por Dani Martin
    • A highly unusual music video. It is about a man that creates a female robot, teaches her how to be human, and falls in love with her in the process.
    • Nice, slower lyrics.
  3. “Bailar” por Deorro ft. Elvis Crespo
    • A music video that involves a quinceañera. Dad gets jealous that his daughter is in love with a boy, so he does all he can to prevent the boy from making it to his daughter’s quinceañera.
    • One of my students’ favorites.
  4. “Tu Enemigo” por Pablo López ft. Juanes
    • Great song about tolerance and acceptance. Based on the singer’s experience with traveling to the US and getting stopped and questioned at customs every time he comes here.
    • Quote from the beginning of the song: “La tolerancia es el fundamento de convivir en paz y entendiendo que en el mundo somos diferentes”
  5. “Déja Vu” por CD9
