Rock music in Spanish?

2
votes

This is probably a long shot, but...

While traveling through south america, several times I've come across spanish covers of classic rock songs - songs like "Hotel California" and other really well-known songs with the same music but sung in espanol by different singers. I never really paid much attention before but was thinking this past week how good of a learning tool this would be since I already know all the english lyrics to these songs. I can't seem to find the CD locally. Has anyone else bought the cds (or similar), or is it available online somewhere?

Thanks.

Hey, thanks for the responses...still haven't been able to find it but I did end up picking up a gypsy kings cd and it is really good. Which is good because peruvian music is absolutely awful and I want to tear my hair out every time I hear it...

I think Gypsy Kings do Hotel California in Spanish - if that helps at all to find the cd smile

And in the meantime here's their lyrics:

[Hotel California Lyrics by The Gypsy Kings][1]

Por el camino del desierto El viento me despeina Sube el aroma de colita Luna, luna de nadie Ella a lo lejos Una luz centela La idea de mi estar

Quedar por la noche Alli estaba a la entrada Y las campanas a sonar Y me di con llamarme mismo Que es puerta del cielo Ella enciende una vela En muestra del camino Suenan voces en el corredor Y lo que indican diciend

(In English)

Welcome to the Hotel California Such a lovely place Such a lovely place

Welcome to the Hotel California Such a lovely place Such a lovely place

Ella al lado que brillaba Tenia una Mercedes Rodeada de chicos guapos Ella llamaba amigos

Cuando viene despacio Del tumba de verano Aquel era pa recordar Y otro pa olvidar

Le pedi al capitan Que sirve el vino Y pedi con un amor Tenido este alcohol De este sesenta y nueve Famosa y que llamando Pues me va a despertar La noche para decir

Welcome to the Hotel California Such a lovely place Such a lovely place

Welcome to the Hotel California Such a lovely place Such a lovely place

(Speaking)

El espejo en el techo Champana en el hielo Y ella dijo somos todos prisioneros De propia voluntad Y en los cuartos principales Hacen sucias esta Hasta aca a la bestia Pero no la logra a matar

(Singing again)

Mi ultimo recuerdo Corria hacia la puerta Ver una candela en el camino Por donde habia llegado "Relax" dijo el portero Por mi es honor recibir Puede salir cuando quiere Pero nunca yo partir

Welcome to the Hotel California Such a lovely place

It isn't Hotel California, but I recently purchased some kid song CDs in Spanish off of ebay for $5 each- including S&H. They are great for learning some new words and phrases. Simple words with music makes it nice. There were no lyrics with them, but that makes it fun to see what you can pick out and I used the translator to translate the titles just to make sure I had a good idea on what the song was about.

I don't know, but I'm curious to see the answer. I heard a Spanish language version of Hotel California the other day. Very cool.
