I wrote this in Inglés as well. If you want that version, click here . I figured since this is in Spanish, I would write it in Spanish.
My sister told me I should listen to Ricardo Arjona. Gave me three CD’s and listened to them.
I have to be honest, the first time I heard his album “Adentro,” I thought, “Well, I is not Mana or Nek, but I like it ok.”
And then I decided to do a post on the album. So I listened a few more times. While I was doing work or at home or while he was saving the princess brown beasts.
And you know what? I love it.
The first time I heard it, two songs came to me.
First, “Goodbye Melancholy.” When I hear this song, it made me want to be in a musical where I am in Central Park and there is a crowd of people around, all singing and dancing with me. As the.
Or she (but not because I am not a “she”)
I liked the other is “I Like You Want To.” It’s pretty angry, I feel. I especially like the second verse where it says:
I could give up, lose my freedom,
I want to as I hope,
I could walk in the fire,
to make you want me like I want.
Some of the piano riff in the beginning and the violin in the middle (it was not like a guitar solo, but I like anyway) caught my attention.
After listening to this album a few more times, I heard the mandolin in “Of Time in Month” and “Penguins in bed.” And when I heard “Wet,” was pretty sure he was listening to them.
And when I listened more, I’m sure it’s a sarcastic song paisas trying to reconquer the land northward.
Listening to “No Me Importa Nada” I felt like I was listening to Santana, and “Bar” is definitely something you expect to hear on a jazz lounge in Mexico.
In the end, I really liked this disk. I was surprised. I’ll get more of the music of Arjona. Look for it later.
