Of course I have!! They are not *famous* the mainstream kind in Mexico but they're on the news after they did the soundtrack for a movie, I think they worked with Hans Zimmer. I have seen them in some cultural shows. (Mental note to myself : I need to get their music for Dad but soon)


There's another fantastic duet who have done amazing songs Jesse y Joy. I first saw them in a talk show and when they performed the third song I was already a fan. Their style is pop, but it's the good honest not saccarine kind.



And this song makes me so happy.



It's a true shame that sometimes excellent bands from Spain and Latinoamerica are not that popular in English spoken languages, and it's even worst when crappy singers do the crossover like Enrique Iglesias and Shakira. Shakira was a fantastic songwriter until she dyed her hair blond and turned herself into a pole dancer. I'm sorry Shakira but you know that's true.


Listen to this song. You would never believe it's the same person that wrote stuff like Loba.




A loose translation:

To love you, I need a reason, and it's hard to believe that there's no more than one in this love.

there's so much left inside this heart, and in spite of the saying "The time are wise", the pain is still felt.

Because all the time I spent next to you, left tissues (or wounds) very inside of me.

And I learned to take away seconds to time, you made me see the sky much deeper

next to you I think I gained a few kilos, with all your so many sweet kisses that you gave me

you made me developed the sense of smell, and I finally learned to love cats

you lifted from the paviment my shoes, to escape both flying for a while

but you forgot a final instruction, because I still don't know how to live without your love

and I discovered what a rose means, and you taught me to say white lies

to meet you at not appropiate hour, and to replace words with a look

and because of you I wrote more thousands songs, and even I forgave your mistakes

and I knew more than thousand ways to kiss, and I finally learned to love.


Amazing poem. Again, too bad now Shakira writes bullshit.

Here comes the sun….. Scoobie-doobie…… Something in the way she moves…..attracts me like a cauliflower… Bop. Bop, cat bop. Go, Johnny, Go. Beware of Darkness…  I believe in SH...

Well, before you get onto singers like Katherine Jenkins and Charlottle Church, there's lostprophets, Badfinger, The Automatic, Feeder and Bullet For My Valentine*.

*I may have used Wikipedia for a few of those.

That's right, Canada and Australia, an area the size of New Jersey and with a population the same size as Albania produces more famous rock groups than you.

I love Thin Lizzy!!!!! The Boys Are Back In Town is quintessential rock.

Come on Daniel, NSync and Backstreet Boys can't both be underrated, it's either one or the other. Here were my thoughts (when I was younger...) NSync is basically only one guy, name one other band member? But BSB is a much greater collection, although they didn't have any superstar. (Nick Carter, lol)
So I'd say BSB was more underrated. Actually, neither were underrated because they were two of the most wildly successful pop groups of all time.

I feel like living in the world of The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch novel right now.

I'd like to say "thank you" on behalf of the group and ourselves and I hope we passed the audition. John Lennon
