Learn Spanish with Bilingual Music

kenneth parnell ·

Listening to one of my favorite songs, all of a sudden it was clear that someone had translated it into Spanish and published the lyrics. That is our first song.

Some I used to know Gotye with translated lyrics in Spanish

 Of course many people have done songs with Spanish and English Lyrics.

Some of the most famous are 

  • Los del Río – “Macarena” ...
  • Pitbull – “I Know You Want Me” ...
  • Ricky Martin – “Livin' La Vida Loca” ...
  • Madonna – “La Isla Bonita” ...
  • Shakira – “Hips Don't Lie” ...
  • Carlos Santana – “Oye Como Va

 Another approach would be to enjoy Spanish music and view English translations,


this playlist brings together hours of tunes translated.

One great way to learn a language is to read a book in a new language that you have already read. Doing this technique with music is helpful, and luckily stars such as Beyonce provide the bilingual material. One song is Irreplaceable, first the English version.

Beyoncé - Irreplaceable

 and en Espanol.

Beyoncé - Irreemplazable

We will be posting more Spanish music and in the meantime you can listen to radio from: Mexico -  Argentina - Spain - Portugal or preview the worlds's best Spanish course Platiquemos.
