I thought that I would practice my Spanish to English translation skills by translating some songs — I’ve recently done partial translations of Marc Anthony [1], as well as Shakira and Gianmarco when I talked about What Were Good Lyrics. I’ve also done full translations for Polvos Azules: A Cinephile’s Paradise, and random songs of Los Nosequien y los Nosecuantos [1][2].

So I thought I would pick an oldie, the 1995 Gianmarco release — some say it’s a 1994 release, but my copy has a 1995 print — of Entre la Arena y la Luna (Between the Sand and the Moon). Obviously, I can’t post ALL lyrics on one go, so I’ll probably add them as I work on them. Gianmarco’s lyrics weren’t as complicated then — and they’re pretty short — so they should be fairly easy to translate.

Sure, the Volkswagen clip is CGI, but you gotta admit that a hover car is so damn cool.

Plus! With the Google Self-Driving Car – it’s so much awesome, right? Though, I’m still divided with the whole big car thing… I still think Dr. Nakamats might be onto something.

I’m shocked that I don’t have a helena bonham carter tag. O_O

I can’t believe Ella got married. I mean, I can believe that Selina would — I had a whole year to realize that — but, YOU KNOW, it was Ella. Did you think Ella would be getting married? In any case, did you think Ella wouldn’t be the last one getting married?

The more you know~

You’d be crazy, Amy. How can Marc Anthony FIGHT! with himself?

Of course, he can! He’s got exact versions of his songs in different languages! So which ones are better? Obviously, Marc Anthony flies that Spanish/English barrier easily, but his Spanish discography, let’s just say, it’s more prolific and slightly more meaningful.

It’s almost too much of a shame to find the VEVO version of his song I Need You, when the better version — equally corny, but much more meaningful Spanish lyrics — of Te Amare [MV] has only been uploaded by a fan.
