Mereces Ser Feliz

Mereces Ser Feliz–You deserve to be happy.

I love Shakira’s song “Dia de Enero.” I can’t get it out of my head recently, so I might as well share it. It’s her love song to Argentine Antonio de la Rua (from from the album Fijacion Oral Vol. 1.) It’s a song about healing a long distance love’s wounds. (“My crazy love is your best doctor.”)

If you haven’t seen my friend Ricki’s new blog, take a look and enter her contest.

  1. I LOVE that slogan! And *sniff*–don’t understand the language, but I do like Shakira’s voice. 😉

    Thanks so much for the shout-out re: the blog! Wish there was some way to send a cake or syrup your way, too.

  2. Great song – thank you for sharing!

    I’ll go check out your friend’s blog too.

  3. I adore that song. Actually I adore every Shakira song. I walked down the aisle to Para Obtener Un Si. 🙂

    This song reminded me of her older songs when she was just starting out. I really admire her lyrics.

  4. Bonjour!

    Thanks for checking out my blog! Nice to meet you!

    How exciting to be living in exotic S.A. How long do you plan on living in Chile? Do you miss the states? I love the fact that you have a blog disclosure policy. I might have to “borrow” your idea (but I’ll link back to you:)

    Thanks for dropping by. You can use the blog disclosure w/o crediting me. I can’t take credit for creating it. 🙂 I look forward to reading more of your expat experiences in Paris!

  5. I too LOVE that song! Her lyrics in general are great because they’re so personal and real…none of this “I love you to the moon and back” crap, just real stuff like “I like your silly accent”. That’s what love is, all the little stuff.

  6. I consider myself Shakira’s “bigger” fan 🙂

    I love this song, it takes me back to the end of 2006 and being pregnant with Dallin.
    Ohhhhh the memories!

    I love when music transports me to a past moment. That would be a sweet memory, Tania.

  7. I like that song. I loved Shakira’s older stuff– although the new stuff is slowly growing on me. It is more catchy, but I feel has lost some of the meaning.

    I agree, Claire. I think that her newer producers must be moving her toward mass appeal. Her older songs were less Britney influenced.
