    Feliz Navidad y Año Nuevo!

    Saludos a todos!

    Well, another holiday season is here and I just want to wish everyone happy festivities this year for whatever you may be celebrating. Christmas is always a festive time in latin countries, a time for celebrating, enjoying food with loved ones, respecting the religious origins of the season and just overall having a wonderful time. Of course, a large part of celebrating is the enjoyment of music. The song I have selected here does a superb job of embodying the feeling of Christmas in latin countries and I just want to share it with you. I apologize for the lack of a full sample of the song (though you can listen to the midi sample on this link) but it is not an easy one to find so please accept this translation as a small token for you all during this season

    Salsa Cubana (El cuerpo me pide) by Elvis Crespo and Victor Manuelle

    (chorus)
    During Christmas time my body asks me that I have lots of fun, let’s go out.
    No one stays behind, this is going to be good, to the sound of sweet music, its time to have fun.

    The doors open and Christmas time is in full swing.
    There’s a lot of noise and I’ve brought this party to sing to you.
    A bunch of friends have come to celebrate with you.
    My body asks me just for fun at Christmas time.

    chorus

    We’ll be singing all night until the sun rises.
    But we’ll have a great time even if you leave early.
    Move your bones, this party gets is driven by this rumba.
    My body asks me just for fun at Christmas time.

    chorus

    With the sounds of aguinaldo, salsa and guaracha during this holy night,
    And then we’ll continue dancing until the new year.
    On the feast of the wise men we want to be gathered with good music.
    My body asks me just for fun at Christmas time.

    My body asked for this party I gave you.
    Since I know you liked it, I’ll do it again.

    Since my body asked for this party I brought it to you.
    I don’t know if you wanted it but my body said, ‘let’s go, let’s go!’
    Since my body asked for this party I brought it to you.
    Hey, Victor, if your body is asking for a party then let’s go to your place and start the dance.
    Since my body asked for this party I brought it to you.
    Hey, Elvis, you see so many people entering your place in a hurry and I’m not seeing your smile.
    Since my body asked for this party I brought it to you.
    You’ll go back to your place and that’s why I have I have my people in the spirit waiting for you.

    My soul breaks but I gently bring this party to you.
    You’re already saying bye but where are you off to?
    My soul breaks but I gently bring this party to you.
    That’s how I wanted to see you, leaving my party.
    My soul breaks but I gently bring this party to you.
    I knew there were many houses to choose from but I chose yours.
    My soul breaks but I gently bring this party to you.
    Tomorrow I’ll go to yours with my own party.
    My soul breaks but I gently bring this party to you.
    There’s like 50 cars and there’s more noise to come.
    My soul breaks but I gently bring this party to you.
    The other 75 cars are waiting at your place.
    My soul breaks but I gently bring this party to you.
    Well, this party is done but now we’re of to the house of…

    Felices Fiestas!

    Sigan bailando!
