Thursday Tunes – Shakira

Welcome to the Thursday Tunes! Each week, I will showcase music, whether new or old. Hopefully you will find something that interests you here!

I’m sure almost all of you have heard of Shakira at one point or another.  She’s had a lot of hit songs, and going to be releasing her new album She Wolf in a couple of weeks.  But have you heard Shakira’s music from before she hit it big in the United States?  Her early Spanish music is simply amazing, even if you don’t speak Spanish.  I love her Grandes Exitos album – a greatest hits CD.  This is a CD I’ve had for years and have listened to it hundreds of times – it’s on constant rotation in my car.

My favorite song off of Grandes Exitos is “Estoy Aqui” which also happens to be one of my favorite songs of all time!  I also love the songs “Si Te Vas” and “No Creo,” but honestly, every single song off this CD is excellent.  Grandes Exitos can be purchased from the Amazon MP3 Store for $9.99.

  5. I am a huge Shakira fan – but believe it or not, I prefer her earlier Spanish stuff. She’s gotten too hip with her English work. I love her voice – and you can really see and feel her in her earlier songs like – she has more of that electronic feel to her now.

    Some of my faves are:
    Ciego, sordo, muda
    Si Te Vas
    Moscas en la Casa
    Inevitable

    These are just some but there are so many more. Great choice this week.
