Nothing worse than Salsa in English :kicks
Maybe you don't listen to much salsa but most of the songs in English start off with the singer singing the commercial remake in English and then ending the song with the Spanish version of the lyrics.
This is not only commercially attractive but you can actually learn the Spanish lyrics for what they were singing in English if you are not a versed Spanish language speaker.

Like these ones for example, they start with English lyrics and end with Spanish! Love it!!

Lol, please stick to soca tande.
Got some disappointing news for you. I probably appreciate as wide a variety of music as you do if not wider and that includes salsa.

As a DJ and music lover I simply have a wide music appreciation and that includes salsa which I have been a fan of since the 90's and I am also a pretty good Salsa dancer as well.

boy, you sure love to compare yourself to others. Is that your only to get some lil self-gratification? Anyone you can play two songs back to back are now called DJ, so you calling yourself one is not any proof of great musical knowledge much less appreciation.

I am not just calling myself a DJ my friend! I have probably been playing music and DJing before you started appreciating music depending on how old you are.

Point I was making is don't try to stereotype me when you don't know how old I am or how long I have been DJing professionally which is since in the 80's for your information.

Therefore it is not your place to tell me to stick to soca to fit your ignorant stereotype. But this is typical of the ignorance of many folks on Imix trying to judge folks they have never met and probably will never meet.

You ate the one who went on stereotyping. I only told you that it's best to stick to soca.

If you don't understand that trying to tell me to stick to soca is trying to stereotype me then you are not really as clever as I was hoping you were.

Sounds 10x better in Spanish
What does, the songs I posted which have both English and Spanish lyrics?
And if so do you realize that the original versions of all those songs were done in English?

So are you telling me that if you were in a salsa party that you will only dance to the part of the song sung in Spanish or are you going to appreciate and dance to the whole song?

No I listen to plenty of Salsa. Everything you just wrote is the exact thing I detest about the "newer" Salsa. That goes for Bachata as well. One of the many reasons the genre died. Not everything has to be in English. Not everything has to be a cover of some popular American song. I'll take my Salsa en Español por favor.

I never argued that everything has to be in English, I simply said that I like many of the commercial covers that include both English and Spanish.
That does not mean that I don't also like the traditional all Spanish salsa songs.

Maybe I appreciate many of the commercial covers because English is my first language and it nice to understand what they are singing and to then also learn the equivalent words in Spanish.

Here is another one I like that came out many years ago:

Merengada - No Woman, No Cry

And here is one of my favourite all Spanish traditional salsa tracks performed live by the Queen herself:

Celia Cruz - Bamboleo (Live 1989)

Getting back to more of the commercial/classic salsa tunes in English and Spanish, here are another two of my favourites:

Orquesta la Palabra - Lady
<iframe width="550" height="400" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/BjNmFOro5Xc?feature=player_detailpage" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>


Actually I think this one is in English and Italian!

Jimmy Sabater & Son Boricua - Volare

And here is my all time favourite salsa group Africando, most of the core members hail from Senegal and the lyrics are usually sung in Senegalese or a combo of Senegalese and Spanish.

Africando - Betece
<iframe width="650" height="400" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/8SnCg81oVXA?feature=player_detailpage" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>


I think this time they sing this one in French and prove yet again that a good salsa classic doesn't always have to be sung in Spanish.

Africando - Aicha
<iframe width="650" height="400" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/GvuvHhP5YXQ?feature=player_detailpage" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>


Here is another one which I think is sung in Senegalese & Spanish! Wicked!!

Africando - Lindas Africanas (African Salsa)
<iframe width="650" height="400" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/ML5q-0RXrbg?feature=player_detailpage" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>


And here is my favourite salsa version of La Bamba, always gets me going at a salsa party.

Africando - Sabador La Bamba

There is no such language as Senegalese. Africando is singing in Wolof. Aicha is a remake of a french pop song in the 90s by Algerian singer Cheb Khaled.

Does not take away from the point pro is making and that is the music is fantastic regardless of the language.

Btw thanks for posting these pro. I've just become a fan of this group.

Okay thanks for that. At least I recognised that they mostly sing salsa in their native African language rather than in Spanish.
