#RomanticTuesday 8-9-16

Hi everyone and happy Tuesday! I had a hard time deciding which song to pick for Romantic Tuesday so I picked two (Two for Tuesday?). The first song, “Can I have this Kiss Forever” is a duet with Whitney Houston and Enrique Iglesias. The song was released in 2000. More than 3 million copies in the U.S. were sold. The song also topped the charts in Switzerland and the Netherlands.

The second song, “Nunca te OlvidarΓ©” (Never forget you) was the theme song for the Mexican telenovela (soap opera) “Nunca te OlvidarΓ©” in 1999. Enrique Iglesias only sang in Spanish when he was starting his music career. I became familiar with his music in the early 90’s. Telenovelas are a huge deal for many Hispanic and Mexican households. My grandmother continues to watch them on a daily basis. Unlike American soap operas, Mexican novelas only last for a few months. Several American soap operas last for decades. There was a couple of telenovelas I enjoyed as a child. They’re no longer on my to-watch list. The second video includes the song in Spanish with lyrics in English. Have a great Tuesday, everyone! I might be back on Wednesday with 915 Art. If not, I’ll be back on Friday.

  6. Now that it is clear what Lady G likes, I’m happy to see that her emergency alerts can spring up at any time, and anywhere. Next, I suppose she can turn a grey sky blue, or make it rain whenever she wants it to. πŸ˜‰

  9. I do. I just think the second song is a better song. She sounds as good as she ever did. I just don’t think the song is all that great though.
