11 Selena Songs You Probably Haven’t Heard, But We Swear Will Become Part Of Your Everyday Playlist

We all know the classics like “Como la flor,” “Bidi bidi bom bom” and “Amor prohibido,” but our queen Selena had way more songs in her repertoire than just those three.

“La llamada”

Sometimes you need tell your cheating ass boyfriend to stop calling you. Selena does that for you in this song, but of course, she makes it sound much prettier. This one goes out to all you CANALLAS!

“No me queda más”

Sometimes you need a song that’ll get help you flush out the (little bit of) feelings you still have for the one who walked away. This one… this one goes straight to the heart. We can say it’s the equivalent of a Chente song.

“El chico del apartamento 512”

Enough with the sappy love songs about a crush that turns into a happily ever after. This song tells us Selena’s the real deal because she knows not every story ends up like a Taylor Swift song. Plus, it’s so cute how she perfectly describes all the jitters we feel when we see him — whether it’s reciprocated or not. Oh man, that guy from apartment 512… still makes our heart skip a beat!

“La carcacha”

“Amor prohibido” is cute, but have you listened to “Lar carcacha”? And the video, giiiiirl, the video is so ’90s. Mullets, cheesy green screen graphics and random pythons floating around… But we’re living for everything, especially Selena’s shimmies.

“No debes jugar”

No one knows how to call out a guy more beautifully than Selena. It’s like, dude, do you want me or not? Because I’m not staying around for your games.

“Baila esta cumbia”

There’s something about cumbias that just get us going. Plus, when Selena says “baila esta cumbia,” you say, “Yes, queen,” and you dance. Just one question, where do we get those pants and that belt?

“Fotos y recuerdos”

Warning: You’ll need tissues. This song was meant for an ex she misses, but ugh, screw that ex. Hearing this song will instantly make you think of her and how much you miss her. It’s one to cry to, but a good one.

“Besitos”

Is it too late to start a petition to get this song on the radio? We seriously need to listen to this song more often… it’s so retro and catchy! #necesitotusbesitoscadanochecadadia

“Techno cumbia”

Before there was EDM, before Bieber made house music cool again, even before tribal, there was Selena remixing cumbia and techno music. She even gave it a hint of reggae. When this song first came out, we didn’t give it enough credit… but we’ve come around!

“¿Qué creías?”

Selena didn’t sing rancheras very often, but when she did, she slayed! She put so much passion into it… why this isn’t a hit, we still don’t know.

“Enamorada de ti”

This one’s definitely not a cumbia, more 90s pop… we dig it. Makes us want to kick on our leather knee-high boots and slide around the kitchen like she does.

This Cholo Goth Video Is So Gothtastic It Listens To The Cure In The Rain

YouTube / Pitchfork / Prayers

Your cholo goth faves, Prayers, released the video for their latest single, “Black Leather,” through Pitchfork on Friday and IT IS GLORIOUSLY GOTH. It even features Kat Von D! It’s more goth than a raven sitting on a skull reading Bolaño in the rain. It’s more goth than Siouxsie Sioux contemplating La Santa Muerte while listening to The Cure in a cemetery. It’s more goth than opening a mazapan and having it break in your hand while Morrissey plays on a loop through your brain.

Let’s zoom in for a closer look at the video’s gothiest moments:

1. Kat Von D Lookin’ Somber AF On A Balcony

3. These Abuelitas, Who Probably Know Something We Don’t

Those mantillas are hiding something far more sinister than just the fact that the cookie tin is full of sewing supplies.

4. This Man And His Snake

5. (Which Was Not A Euphemism)

I like them. I would give any of them my last clove cigarette.

8. This Man’s Migraine

Nothing makes you want to chill in a catacomb like a migraine. Ergo, migraines are goth.

9. Her Bangs

Also, her forearm skirts.

10. This Girl And Her Necklace

The other guys are goth, but he’s the most goth.
