Whether you’re a cynic about love or a hopeless romantic, there’s no denying Valentine’s Day is here. To embrace the official day of love, I’ll be listening to these love songs en español nonstop. Think of it as your V-day CD mix.
“Tu Carcel” by Los Bukis
Yes, this song is super old school, but you can’t help but sigh every time you hear Marco Antonio Solis’s voice.
“No Me Queda Más” by Selena
You cannot have a love song playlist without including Selena. This song, is the most heartbreaking, which is why it can’t go MIA from your Valentine’s Day mix.
“Incondicional” by Luis Miguel
Love is supposed to be unconditional, and no one says that better than Luis Miguel.
“Entre Más Me Ignoras” by Mexrrissey
Morrissey is the epitome of sadness, so when you sing his songs in Spanish it’s 100 times worse, in the best way possible.
“Eres” by Café Tacvba
This song perfectly pens everything you love about your significant other. It describes why you love them and says everything you think of them – but a million times better.
“Luz De Día” by Enanitos Verdes
I seriously considered this song to be my wedding song. Its soothing melody and incredible lyrics are enough to make any heart melt.
“Ciega, Sordomuda” by Shakira
Old school Shakira is completely bad ass. This song speaks to me on a deep level because it reminds me of how blind I can get when it comes to love. That’s what you call pasión.
“Trátame Suavemente” by Soda Estereo
We miss Gustavo Cerati — lead singer of Soda Stereo — so much! But one listen to this song and it’ll feel like he’s serenading you outside your window.
“Amor” by Cristian Castro
We often wonder whatever happened to Christian Castro. Either way, he’s left us so many great love songs, but this one is the best. Listen to it once and it’ll be ringing in your head all day long.
