she's a poet. she has an incredible way with words. this is the Shakira I love! her latest musical doings have been pretty disappointing, I have to say (although I LOVE the video to "Did it again"), but I'm a huge, huge fan of her earlier work. she is gorgeous, talented and hard working, and used to be so fresh and original... she's mainstreaming a bit nowadays, isn't she? I still hope she goes back to what she was in the Pies Descalzos, Donde Estan Los Ladrones and Laundry Sevice era.

I agree. I understand she went more mainstream for more sales (probably) but why she had to do that after Oral Fixation, i've no idea. She can go back to writing those amazing lyrics and change the music scene. She has enough fans to be able to do that. She's practically legendary now. It's been since 1993.

I just understood the "the girl is mine" and "hahaha"

I picked up Spanish learning materials for the summer and studied them but I've put it on pause because we're going French in school so...

I absolutely agree with all those of you *winks @ Ash* who admire Shakira's songwriting skills. She truly has a way with words. I think she one of the best female musicians out there and i must say that unlike some of y'all i verrrrry much appreciate her newer deliveries. Not only is she a great video artist and a superb lyricist, but she is also a complete pro and a talented life performer :clap:

What follows is a selection of lyrics and videos of hers that I love. I've already posted most of these lyrics in that favorite lyrics thread from two years ago, but they are well worth the repeat.


You're a song
Written by the hands of God
Don't get me wrong cause
This might sound to you a bit odd
But you own the place
Where all my thoughts go hiding
And right under your clothes
Is where I find them

[video=youtube;uwBwKcQ1k84]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uwBwKcQ1k84&ob=av2n [/video]
Underneath your clothes
There's an endless story
There's the man I chose,
There's MY territory
And all the things I deserve
For being such aaaa good girl honey.....
:D



Ayer conocí un cielo sin sol
y un hombre sin suelo
Un santo en prisión
y una canción triste sin dueño
Ya he ya he ya la he
Y conocí tus ojos negros
Ya he ya he ya la he
Y ahora sí que no
puedo vivir sin ellos yo

[video=youtube;DAlTlcXGGe4]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DAlTlcXGGe4[/video]
Le pido al cielo sólo un deseo
que en tus ojos yo pueda vivir
He recorrido ya el mundo entero
y una cosa te vengo a decir
Viajé de Bahrein hasta Beirut
Fuí desde el norte hasta el polo sur
Y no encontré ojos así
como los que tienes tú



I'm crazy but you like it.....

We're getting closer
This isn't over

[video=youtube;p2cdDuDvkA8]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p2cdDuDvkA8&feature=related [/video]
I just loved this one during the World Cup, same as K'naan's songs


You're the one I need
The way back home is always long
But if you're close to me I'm holding on
Cause there's nothing like your smile made of sun

[video=youtube;RkmgolV7n2s]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RkmgolV7n2s[/video]


Que se terminen las películas de acción
Que se destruyan en el mundo los placeres
Y que se escriba hoy una última canción

[video=youtube;WlSBl0YUZcc]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WlSBl0YUZcc&ob=av2e [/video]
Pero que me quedes tú
Y me quede tu abrazo
Y el beso que inventas cada día
Y que me quede aquí
Después del ocaso
Para siempre tu melancolía
Porque yoooo, yoo sí, sí
Que dependo de ti
Y si me quedas tú
Me queda la vida



I never really knew that she could dance like this
She make a man want to speak Spanish
Let me see you move like you come from Colombia

Oh boy, I can see your body moving
Half animal, half man
I don't, don't really know what I'm doing
But you seem to have a plan

[video=youtube;DUT5rEU6pqM]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DUT5rEU6pqM[/video]
My hips never lie. My mouth might, every now and then, because it has to, but my hips and my tears are always honest.

Cause of the full moon out in the cold, winter air lol

It may seem to you that I am in a place
Where I’m losing the direction of my life
But I’m sure that this is nothing but a phase
“Right back at ya,” his eyes so vïle


[video=youtube;mqqLoUcLX5I]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mqqLoUcLX5I [/video]
Cuando menos piensas sale el sol


[video=youtube;eXQXs3Lr0UA]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eXQXs3Lr0UA&ob=av2n[/video]
I loooove this one. The beat is just sick and Wayne is awesome in it.


[video=youtube;weRHyjj34ZE]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=weRHyjj34ZE[/video]
Whenever, wherever
We're meant to be together
I'll be there, you'll be near
And that's the deal my dear


Yo me propongo ser de ti
Una victima casi perfecta

[video=youtube;GKlpL4FhzUs]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GKlpL4FhzUs&ob=av2e[/video]
Y asi como ves
Estoy viva aun
Sera cuestion de suerte.
Creo que empiezo a entender
Despacio,despacio,comienzas a caer
Que nos deseabamos desde antes de nacer
Te siento,te siento,desde antes de nacer

And my favorite Shakira song of all time.....:D

I can't hide
what I've done
Scars remind me
Of just how far that I've come



If the rumors about her pregnancy and impending wedding are true, i would be so very happy for her. She deserves nothing but the best in life. And from one Sha chick to another :p i'd like to offer her some more than friendly advice - she has and i am sure will continue to have a brilliant career ahead of her, but fulfillment for a woman resides first and foremost in having a real man by her side and a beautiful family of her own.

Dios te bendiga chica, a ti y a todos los que quieres
y gracias....por todo
*m sal*


And btw of this kinda stuff, i'd like to dedicate all of the above songs to my nerdy guy, who can get on my last friggin' nerves at times, but which i'll always love no matter what. Today being the 8[SUP]th[/SUP] is his patron saint day and like every month we try to do somethin' special for one another on our days.

LOVE YA geek of mah life *smoooch - just make sure you remove them lip gloss marks i left* :innocent:

She writes better in Spanish.

@Shaaaby: It's my native language also, but I write better in English than in Spanish. Thx for the rep, btw. =P
