Soulful Mexicans


Just heard on Twitter that the 1st song “Besame” (Kiss Me)  is doing really well on the charts & I had heard talk about it before, but just hadn’t gotten around to listening to it. I finally listened to it and it’s really good, very romantic song.  Once again Camila makes it on to the blog with this live performance of the song. These guys are so talented! They’re brilliant composers and awesome musicians. Song number two is a song I found and knew instantly I had to share. This girl’s got some killer vocals. She’s classy, she’s jazzy what a mellow and soulful vibe.  Hope u have a romantic evening & ENJOY!

LYRICS TRANLSATION by: MegaSuper Chido

I’m a singular case.

One that I should analyze.

Don’t know what they gave or what they did to me, but I am no longer normal.

Fate outdid itself and a prank wrung me out.


This is not my house & this is not my wife.

And this guy you see before you isn’t me.

This isn’t me.

Crazy, you looked like a crazed woman to me.

I love it when you’re crazy, come closer to me and kiss me here on the mouth.

Don’t be like that.  I love it when you tease.

You looked like a  crazy woman to me.

And come kiss me here on the…


Everything is confusion and we’re looking for salvation.

This is not my story  nor  is this my memory. I wasn’t’ me who killed you.
How to make you understand? You are not going to believe me.

This is not my bed, this is not my spectrum,  And this guy you see before you isn’t me.

Crazy, you looked like a crazed woman to me.

I love it when you’re crazy, come closer to me and kiss me here on the mouth.

Don’t be like that. I love it when you tease.

You looked crazy to me.

And come kiss me here on the….

I don’t do anything other than dance & dance.

With your sweet little face I live dreaming & Thinking .

And If you wish,  I will live fighting & fighting. I will bring out the animal instic in you

Mexican Pop : The return of OV7


The news is out & it’s official, OV7 is making a comeback! Some rumor that not everyone will be back, & that Kalimba(ex member turned solo artist) will not be part of the comeback, while other sources say that he indeed has expressed the desire to preform once more with his former group.  Who is OV7? During an era that can be described as the reign of boy bands &  pop princesses OV7 was a coed pop group that enjoyed much popularity in Mexico.  The band gets it’s name from the musical “Grease” OV7 stands for = Onda Vaselina 7 which would translate to something like = Grease Vibe 7.  The group says about it’s comeback:  That their break up was premature, and they want to recover things lost, because the group was dissolved when they still had a lot to give.  They feel that no one with their style or vibe is on the scene at the moment and they want to bring back just that.  Die hard fans are besides themselves as a result of  the comeback news, it’s like a piece of their youth is retrived, and revived.

An invitation from the guys to be part of the comeback

One of OV7’s top hits “Sha ba da ba da” Lmao ahhh the 90’s.  I remember this song from when I took a trip to Mexico when I was like 14- 15,  it was big.  I remember watching the video on MTV at my aunt’s house, and dancing in front of the television.
