Get In The Valentine’s Day Mood With This Playlist Of Spanish-Language Love Songs

Whether you’re a cynic about love or a hopeless romantic, you won’t be able to escape that Valentine’s Day is here. So why not embrace it? Remember, all you need is love! So, if you need some convincing of that — or if you’re counting down the days to Valentine’s Day — we have just what you need to get in the mood.

We’ve compiled the most beautiful Spanish love songs that are perfect for giving you (or your loved ones) the most love vibes ever. Back in the day, people would give their crush a mix with their favorite songs. Think of this love music list as your mix that will give you all sorts of emotions, and feel free to pass it on to your luva(s).

Be aware these songs are about love. Not about broken hearts or forcing someone to fall in love with you, but real love that is here to stay.

RBD – “Tu Amor”

Instagram/@rbd.porsiempre

We know that RBD has a ton of songs about love, but “Tu Amor” has to be one of our favorites. Yes, it’s in Spanglish, but it still counts!

Jose Jose – “Amar y Querer”

YouTube

There’s a rumor that Jose Jose invented love. Okay, while that be a lie, Jose Jose is the king of love songs. This one, in particular, is extra romantic. He always makes us feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

Los Enanitos Verdes – “Luz de Dia”

Instagram/@enanitosverdes

There are not many Spanish rock songs that will make you cry, or can explain the true wonders of love, but this song does exactly that. Enanitos Verdes may not have been the most popular rock band, but this song is the most beautiful rock ballad ever.

Selena – “Amor Prohibido”

YouTube

Selena has a lot of wonderful songs about love, but remember, this mix isn’t about love that is lost (or that doesn’t exist). This song not only screams that love is real, but she also says, people don’t want them to be together, just like Romeo and Juliet.

Juanes – “Nada Valgo Sin Tu Amor”

Instagram/@juanes

Oof.

That’s what this song by Juanes makes us feel. When he released this song, Juanes was still becoming a household name. However, he hooked us in real good with this track.

Los Zafiros – “He Venido”

Instagram

Let’s go old-school for a bit, like real old school. Los Zafiros — a Cuban harmony vocal group — were around during the ’60s, but their music is timeless. This song is beyond romantic, take a listen and you won’t know what hit you. It may sound retro, but it’s a classic.

Shakira – “Tu”

YouTube

We will admit that there’s one other Shakira song in the mix. The girl has too many love songs, but “Tu” is one of her earlier tracks nad it’s so darn amazing.

Luis Miguel – “Mucho corazon”

YouTube

Luis Miguel is a master at love songs. He has a way of singing that makes you think he is in love with you. That’s probably why he has so many fans.

Sin Bandera – “Entra en mi vida”

YouTube

“Entra en mi vida/ Te abro la puerta/ Sé que en tus brazos ya no habrá noches desiertas” if those lines don’t make you feel love, then you are officially a robot.

Julieta Venegas – “Lento”

YouTube

If you’ve ever been in love (that deep obsessive love) you know the feeling of not wanting it to end. That’s what “Lento” by Julieta Venegas makes you feel. She wants every moment to be slow and magical, and that’s what the song really is. 

Christian – “No podras”

YouTube

Christian’s voice is rare, or we should say his pitch is out of this world. Sometimes people say that there is no way you can truly describe what love is. If you listen to this song by Christian, you will know exactly what love is.

Franco de Vita – “Te Amo”

YouTube

Even before we had experienced love (or even puberty), we had no idea what love was or anything. But for some reason, this song by Franco de Vita was everywhere, and women loved it so much. We automatically associated love at first sight with this song and knew that love could exist on any corner — if we only we had our heart open.

Fey – “Media Naranja”

YouTube

Some say that you’ll know if you found “the one” if they are your soul mates or if they compliment you in every way. Clearly Fey knows all about that feeling because she describes it perfectly in this song. And it will make you dance!

Tito El Bambino – “Llueve el Amor”

YouTube

Sometimes love can best be explained through motion. Tito El Bambino exudes romance through this music and “Llueve el Amor” will have you thinking that it does rain love.

Marisela and Marco Antonio Solis – “La Pareja Ideal”

YouTube

Marisela and Marco Antonio Solis were an actual couple, and who could ever question that? Their duets have so much chemistry. It’s a shame they are no longer together, but in our mind, they will always be the ideal couple.

Prince Royce – “Darte Un Beso”

YouTube

Oh, Prince Royce… Valentine’s Day would suck without you and your lyrics and your music, and your beautiful face! We will just leave it at that.

Luis Fonsi and Juan Luis Guerra – “Llegaste Tú”

YouTube

If someone said to you: “Yo soy el hombre más afortunado/ Me ha tocado un ser/ El que conoce cada línea de tu mano/ El que te cuida/ Y camina a tu lado,” you would simply respond by saying “you had me ‘yo.'”

Cafe Tacvba – “Eres”

YouTube

Cafe Tacvba may seem like a typical rock band but these guys are anything but typical. In fact, not only will they make you dance, and rock out, but also release one of the most beloved love songs of all-time.

Shakira – “Estoy Aqui”

YouTube

Here’s that other Shakira song that we had to include. This woman knows and understands all the intricacies of real love. She’s amazing at putting it on paper and singing it to the masses.

Wisin & Yandel – “Gracias A Ti”

YouTube

This song may seem like it was written for the fans of Wisin & Yandel but at the heart of it, it’s about love and showing that other person how much they mean to you. And if you can’t say it on Valentine’s Day, when else can you say it? The answer to that is every day

20 Sexy Questions To Reignite Your Bond With Your Girlfriend

Glee /Fox

Falling in love with the right person and learning everything you can about her is easy and natural. But although you might think you know everything you can about your special lady, we bet that there are still questions that are left unanswered in your life. For one, do you know everything you can about her sexuality? Probably not. But don’t worry because learning about her in a more intimate setting is something that can help you two get closer and strengthen your relationship in the long run.

That’s where these 20 sexual questions come in. These sexy questions are all things that you can ask your girlfriend tonight, tomorrow and the next day. And they are all guaranteed to bring further intimacy and continue to build your bond. So, get to cuddling and share some details of your sexy past and even sexier future — and get ready to hear hers.

1. Have you ever skinny dipped?

uniquehotels/Instagram

This kind of question is sexy in and of itself because it forces you to talk about two things that are very alluring: Nakedness and being daring. It’s a question that can definitely create a lot more conversation and you can talk about where you’ve skinny dipped or, even better, where you want to skinny dip in the future, together.

2. Where would you love to have sex?

mervearici964/Instagram

People can have a lot of different answers to this question, so it’s definitely one that you want to ask your girlfriend earlier on in the relationship or when you are feeling that things are getting a bit stale. It’s the kind of question that can lead to a lot of really interesting conversations, honestly. And plans. Don’t forget to make the plans.

3. What is the sexiest thing about women to you?

tothetop_duo/Instagram

Women are sexy, period. And you probably already knew that since you find your girlfriend pretty darn sexy, too, but have you ever stopped to think what exactly makes her sexy to you? Ask this question of her and you both might end up surprising each other with what the conversation brings.

4. Do you like to be dominant or passive?

matheusfinva/Instagram

Every relationship is complicated and everyone’s sexual desires are complicated but you can really delve deep into your girlfriend’s desires by asking her this question. It might even spark a fuller conversation where you talk about your own preferences, too.

5. What’s the ultimate role play for you?

sexy_bisexual_15/Instagram

Role-playing is something that can take your relationship to the next level or get you out of a rut. It’s also something that can simply inspire some interesting conversations, which is why this is definitely a question that you should ask your sweetie. Maybe just wait until you’re in a really intimate moment first, though.

6. Who is your secret celebrity crush?

hereisgina/Instagram

Talking about your celebrity crushes is a sure-fire way to invite some fun conversation and intimacy into your relationship. Of course, the key here is to ask your girlfriend about her secret crush. You know, there’s always somebody that she may name that is unexpected and will solicit more sexy questions.

7. Are you more rough or passionate?

neva.s.withrow/Instagram

Passion is an excelleny thing to have in a relationship but it’s definitely not the only thing. And when it comes to having sex, people tend to have a style. Some like it really rough and dirty while others like it passionate and sensual. Although neither is right or wrong, it’s good to know what your girlfriend prefers by asking her this question.

8. What kind of talk do you like, if any, in bed?

salsagalnyc/Instagram

Some people like sexy talk. Some people do not. Some people like it super dirty. Some do not. You may not know exactly what your girlfriend prefers just yet because it can be an awkward subject to just bring up out of the blue, so why not ask her? This way, you’ll have something new and totally sexy to talk about in bed.

9. What’s the sexiest thing someone has done to you?

caitlin.b.abramson/Instagram

You can definitely make this a really interesting question if you ask what someone has done “to” her and “for” her. It will definitely mean two different responses, but I bet both of them will be surprising and interesting. Just don’t be afraid to share your own answer to this question, too.

10. What’s your favorite body type?

_lorena_alexandra_/Instagram

One way to talk about the things that you each find sexy is to talk about the type of bodies that you find most attractive. This can be an interesting thing to bring up but definitely make sure to only bring it up if you are comfortable in your body and relationship, since you don’t want to get jealous over what she says.

11. What’s your view on “50 shades”?

50 Shades of Grey is a book and movie franchise that changed the world or, at least, the way women behave sexually. All of a sudden, it became okay (and even encouraged!) to be kinky. But how much do you know about your girlfriend’s opinion on the books and the sexy topic? Now’s the time to ask!

12. Have you ever had sex more than once in a day?

briandteelive/Instagram

No matter how good your sex life is, there is always room for improvement. When you are getting more intimate with your partner, you might want to know what their “record” is in terms of the most times they have ever had sex. And then, I suggest, you improve upon that number.

13. Where do you like being touched the most?

_asvp_angelina_/Instagram

Some of us fully admit that our breasts are the most sensitive place while others love gentle little kisses behind the ears. And some of us still find something else so erotic that it makes sex even better. This is a great question to ask earlier in your relationship so that you can make sure to touch that part more and more.

14. Have you ever had sex in a public place?

latinaslovetravel/Instagram

Sex in public is still a taboo subject but it’s one that we should be discussing more because, for some people, it’s the pinnacle of sexuality. Whether or not you are turned on by it, it’s something that you should think about and consider with your partner. That’s why you should find out if she’s ever done it in a public place.

15. What is your favorite sexual position?

entrepretas/Instagram

Everyone has a favorite sex position and anyone who claims not to is clearly lying. This is definitely a daring question to ask your sweetie but it’s one that can lead to greater sexual satisfaction. If you know what they like (and know what you like), then you can do a lot more in the bedroom to bring pleasure to each other.

16. Have you ever been so horny that you couldn’t control yourself?

icandeeevents/Instagram

This is definitely a sexy picture and an even sexier image to have of your girlfriend, though you’ll probably want to make sure that you’re fairly secure in your relationship before bringing this one up. It’s also best to talk about this when you are having a particularly intimate moment, perhaps laying in bed at the end of the day.

17. Have you ever been to a strip club? 

mmadalynne/Instagram

Who says that men are the only ones that get to enjoy strip clubs? Us ladies can love them too, and perhaps you’re even the kind of couple who has ventured out to one together. But even if you’re not, this is a fun topic to bring up with your special lady and hear about her experience.

18. Have you ever gotten with someone you weren’t allowed to?

word2mylocs/Instagram

One way to talk about taboo subjects in your relationship is to do it out in the open. That’s why you should definitely bring up whether your girlfriend has ever been with someone she wasn’t supposed to. Sure, it can lead to some interesting conversation… But it can also lead to some interesting revelations.

19. What kind of outfit would look best on me?

plussizebodylove/Instagram

This is the kind of question that you’ll want to ask your girlfriend when you are feeling particularly comfortable with her. But, when it comes right down to it, it would be a good idea to know what your partner likes for you to wear… and visa versa. That way, you can both always look great for each other.

20. Have you ever tried tantric sex?

bree_ivyy/Instagram

If you didn’t know this, tantric sex is about having a really intense, connected experience during sex (either by yourself or with a partner). It’s something really enjoyable that couples can enjoy together but, before you try that, you should definitely talk to your partner about whether or not she has tried it before… and what her experience was. And if not, perhaps it’s an experience you can have together.

Shakira’s Song ‘Whenever, Wherever” Reaches No. 1 After Her Super Bowl Performance But Latinos Have Always Adored Her

Entertainment

Shakira’s Song ‘Whenever, Wherever” Reaches No. 1 After Her Super Bowl Performance But Latinos Have Always Adored Her

Columbia / Instagram

As the youngest in five, I rarely had the chance to travel alone.

How could I? With a paranoid mom and a closed-off dad, it was hard to ask for permission to venture out on my own. Sure, I had traveled a lot including abroad but I was either always with a family member or close friends. One year, my friend Sandra and I ventured throughout Mexico — a country I had never discovered on my own. When I was younger, I mostly stayed in the state of Nayarit because that’s where my family is from. So I never had a reason, or the courage, to learn more about the surrounding states in Mexico.

That was until my friend Sandra introduced me to a magical city, right in the center of the country.

queretaromex / Instagram

She had studied in Queretaro, Mexico, as part of her study-abroad program in college. I felt a little ashamed that someone like me — a proud Mexican Latina — had never been there, let alone any other state outside of Nayarit.

She took me there years later when I was 25 and fell in love with this incredible historic city — and sequentially someone else too.

ready4trips / Instagram

One night — at a club — I saw a man, unlike anyone I had ever seen before.

Think of a Mexican version of John F. Kennedy Jr. He was dapper, preppy, and totally hot.

Giphy.com

Completely out of my league too — or so I thought.

I didn’t think I’d ever see him again, but the following night we returned to that same club and there he was, but this time at the table next to ours.

“Scarface” / Giphy.com

I coyly started dancing with him because why not? We ended up dancing the entire night together and I felt like I was literally floating.

Being there, in Queretaro, among local Mexicanos, listening to their music — unfiltered and unAmericanized, I had never felt that alive in my life.

qbarlounge / Instagram

This is when I discovered so much incredible Latin music like FobiaCafe Tacuba and Shakira.

I should rephrase that. I discovered Spanish-speaking Shakira years after she had released her 1998 album “Dónde Están los Ladrones?”

The album catapulted her into a Latin superstar and I was in awe of her rocker chick vibe.

shakixfan / Instagram

While I loved my individuality as an alternative Chicana, I sure didn’t embody the independent woman I longed to be.

Even though I expressed a love for Spanish rock music, I was in a lot of ways very shy.

DaddyIssues / Instagram

But Shakira’s album made me feel different.

The song that truly moved me on that album is called “Si te vas.”

At first listen the song comes off as a ballad but it’s much more of a painful rock song that happens to be about a loss of love — as most songs are.

However, in this track, Shakira’s angst is infused throughout it just by the way she vocalizes certain aspects of the words.

shakixfan / Instagram

But this is my favorite part:

“Si te vas si te vas si te marchas

Mi cielo se hará gris

Si te vas si te vas ya no tienes

Que venir por mi

Si te vas si te vas y me cambias

Por esa bruja pedazo de cuero

No vuelvas nunca mas, ya no estaré aquí.”

But back to my imaginary love story. His name was Antonio.

Giphy.com

And he was an architect that lived in Queretaro. I was infatuated, to say the least. After our night of dancing, we went on a couple of dates, and one, in particular, that is too steamy to get into.

Soon after I returned to California soon after still on cloud nine.

Youtube.com / Giphy.com

But that’s all it took.

I really thought I was in love with this Mexican heartthrob.

sova02 / Instagram

When I returned to my real life, Antonio and I kept in touch.

We emailed, talked on the phone, and in my head, I was already scheming about how to go back to see him.

ABC / GIphy.com

I didn’t know how I would go back to Queretaro, but I knew that I had to. What I felt for Antonio was undeniable and I wasn’t going to let anything get in my way.

I didn’t tell anyone about my plan.

ptrzykd / Giphy.com

I would just sit in my room — yes, I was a 26-year-old that still lived at home — and listened to Shakira’s album and think about Antonio.

One day it hit me. I would save money, enough for three months’ worth of rent, and move to Queretaro.

CW / Giphy.com

I talked to my parents about it and simply said: “I need to get away and just write.”

My parents didn’t fight with me over the plan.

Giphy.com

I secretly think they just wanted me out of the house. And so I saved, and saved, and saved, every penny I could get my hands on. When I finally had enough, I bought a one-way ticket to Mexico City. I don’t even remember being scared.

I just remember having a direct plan and listening to my Shakira playlist.

@trulysocial / Instagram

It didn’t feel like I was alone either. When you’re traveling alone and listening to music, it’s like your famous friends are there right there with you.

I stayed at the most picturesque house in Queretaro and didn’t even tell Antonio that I was coming to town.

Tumblr

Yes, that was probably a mistake, but I didn’t care to hear anything negative. I guess underneath I knew what I was doing was kind of nuts, but love makes you do crazy things. When I did tell Antonio that I was in town, he said what I was dreading:

“You didn’t come here for me, did you?” he said.

“No! Of course, not. I came to write,” I said quickly.

“Oh, that’s good, because I have a girlfriend,” he said.

I think at that moment my body went numb because I don’t remember feeling sad or angry, just kind of in shock.

“How long have you been with her?” I said. I should note that it had only been a few months since I had last seen him.

“Always,” he said. “I’ve always been with her.”

The next couple of hours were a daze, but I cried myself to sleep that night. Here I was in Queretaro, all alone, and three more months to go. The next morning, I got up early, turned on my Shakira playlist and went for a run.

Even though I was sad about the fact that Antonio had a girlfriend the entire time we were together, I realized how special it was that I was in this amazing city.

For the next three months, I did write.

I wrote a lot in fact, and I also met someone else.

Identity / Giphy.com

That relationship didn’t go beyond my time in Queretaro, but I loved knowing that heartbreak would not be the end of me.

The joy of being alone in Queretaro and doing exactly what I had envisioned all on my own was all I needed.

qrobici / Instagram

Even now when I listen to “Si te vas” I never feel sad about Antonio, just pure happiness that I did something pretty extraordinary and have memories that will last me a lifetime.
