Alejate de Mi & Mientes - Camila / by airi katsuta

I've always liked listening to Spanish songs, like Shakira or Selena when I was learning Spanish back in middle school. I didn't really understand what they were singing about but it just sounds so good. I learned English by listening to songs so maybe I'll be able to understand Spanish by listening more.

So lately, I've been listening to 100.3 La Kalle, which is a Latin radio station. I've had enough of the over-saturated pop songs on 104.7 or 101.5. Hey, I love Lady GaGa or Bruno Mars but if it's playing every 10 minutes, my ears starts to hurt. Anyways, after listening to 100.3, I discovered this band called Camila. Their ballads have so much emotions in it, and even though I don't understand what they're really saying, I can feel it, if that makes any sense.
