So this song is in spanish. A version of it was the theme song to a telenovela my mom and I used to watch when I was a little girl. It’s such a sweet love song. 


Te Quiero Tanto
Si talvez pudieras comprender

que nose, como expresarme bien

si talvez pudiera hacerte ver

que no hay otra mujer mejor que tu para mi.

Si talvez me harias muy feliz,

si talvez me lo podrias decir,

si talvez, detalle a detalle, podrias conquistarme seria tuuya.

Te quiero tanto, tanto,tanto, tanto, tanto, cada dia un poco mas

te quiero tanto, tanto, tanto, tanto, tanto, para mi no hay nadie igual, no lo hay

te quiero tanto, tanto, tanto amor, que ya no puedo mas.

Pues talvez, el mundo aprendera con nuestro amor, lo bello que es amar

y talvez lo vuelva a repetir pareja por pareja el mundo entero al fin.

Te quiero tanto, tanto,tanto, tanto, tanto, cada dia un poco mas

te quiero tanto, tanto, tanto, tanto, tanto, para mi no hay nadie igual, no lo hay

te quiero tanto, tanto, tanto amor, que ya no puedo mas, ya no puedo mas, ya no puedo mas.

Do You Remember

Do you remember when we first met?

I sure do, it was some time in early September

You were lazy about it, you made me wait around

I was so crazy about you I didn’t mind

So I was late for class, I locked my bike to yours

It wasn’t hard to find, you painted flowers on it

I guess that I was afraid that if you rolled away

You might not roll back my direction real soon

Well I was crazy about you then and now

The craziest thing of all is over ten years have gone by

And you’re still mine, we’re locked in time

Let’s rewind

Do you remember when we first moved in together?

The piano took up the living room

You played me boogie-woogie I played you love songs

You’d say we’re playing house now you still say we are

We built our getaway up in a tree we found

We felt so far away but we were still in town

Now I remember watching that old tree burn down

I took a picture that I don’t like to look at

Well all these times they come and go

And alone don’t seem so long

Over ten years have gone by

We can’t rewind, we’re locked in time

But you’re still mine

Do you remember?

World Mental Health Day: Pick Me Up Playlist Tag

This is such a great tag! World Mental Health Day was on October 10th this year and I completely missed it. So thank you Sophia Ismaa for tagging me in this! You know what’s funny? I actually made a playlist of songs that make me happy after a conversation I had with my therapist years ago. These songs are on that playlist. And I do listen to it every once in a while when I start to feel down. 

RULES:

  • Link back to ‘Pick Me Up Playlist’ creator – Laura Spoonie
  • Tag the blogger who nominated you
  • Mention how music helps your Mental Health
  • List 10 songs that you would consider to be a part of your ‘Pick Me Up Playlist’ (optional: mention a little bit why each song is on your list)
  • Tag 10 other bloggers to join in with the ‘Pick Me Up Playlist’ Challenge

1. Wannabe – Spice Girls

It’s the Spice Girls! I still want to be Baby Spice lol. Enough said. 

2. El Chico del Apartamento 512 – Selena

My Queen ❤ !!!! This song is light and fluffy. In a nutshell: it’s about a girl that has a crush on her neighbor; the guy in apartment 512. 

3. Livin’ on a Prayer – Bon Jovi

“You live for the fight when it’s all you got”

4. 99 Red Balloons – Nena

First heard it on Gilmore Girls. But it reminds me of college. I remember one of my college roommates putting it on a party playlist at some point. 

5. Love on Top – Beyoncé

This song makes me ridiculously happy. The first time I heard it was when Beyoncé sang it at the MTV awards and revealed she was pregnant. That joy is radiating off of her and it’s contagious 😀

6. La Tortura – Shakira Ft. Alejandro Sanz

My other queen ❤ !! I still have the cassette tapes of her early music lol. It’s nostalgia coupled with great music. 

7. Young Folks – Peter Bjorn and John

It’s the whistling. As soon as I hear it, it puts me in a good mood. 

8. Do You Love Me – The Contours

I love dancing to this song when no one is watching. Also, it’s The Contours. No real explanation needed.

9. Paradise – George Ezra

It’s an upbeat, lovey-dovey song. 

10. Me Vale – Maná

OH MY GOD this song!! It’s an anthem!! Whenever people like to voice their unasked for opinion regarding my life choices, I listen to this song. Instant mood booster. In a nutshell: it’s a guy talking about how he doesn’t give a damn about what people think of him and calling them out on it. Loose translation of one of the lyrics: “Instead of criticizing my life and pointing out what’s wrong with it, you should focus on yourself.” Yes!!!

The Rose That Grew From Concrete by Tupac Amaru Shakur

Wow. I shouldn’t be surprised that I was so moved by this little book of poems. It’s real; raw beauty in written form.

I don’t actually read that much poetry. It’s simply not for me. I’m too literal of a reader. “Just tell me what you’re saying” was my most frequent outburst when I read Shakespeare’s sonnets. My bff loves poetry though. So any poetry I’ve read this year is all her doing. I had been meaning to read this book for a while and I’m so glad I finally did. 

We all know who Tupac was. I think we’re all familiar with his story. As a 90’s baby I know the impact his music had, and continues to have on generations of people. I also know the characterization that the media frequently portrayed and still portrays of this young man was/is completely wrong. 

To read these poems, is to get a peek at an incredibly talented and sensitive soul. These poems are real. Really real. They delve into some topics that are unfortunately still relevant today. And this last poem. Buckets of tears. Buckets.
