Inside: The best Spanish love songs: A Latin Playlist.
It’s no secret that Spanish is a romantic language– and no, I don’t mean that it’s one of the Romance Languages! Rocket Languages says:
As one of the world’s most widely spoken languages, Spanish tops off our list as one of the world’s most romantic languages because of its passionate, sensual sound.
Hah! I think this is probably true. No wonder Latin music and poetry are famous. And of course, music in Spanish can make your perfect background for Valentine’s Day, or whatever love-is-in-the-air sort of time it may be.
You’ll notice this list is more classic– I’m working on the following lists to add to my Songs in Spanish collection:
- Valentine’s Day Songs for Spanish Class
- Sad Spanish Songs (A Break-up Playlist)
- Classic Spanish Songs (Folk Songs)
Let’s take a tour of our top picks!
Spanish Love Songs
1. Bésame Mucho
Can it get any more classic than Bésame mucho? This is an iconic Spanish love song that belongs on every romantic Latin list.
2. No Te Apartes de Mí – Vicentico
I love this duet: “Todo amor que yo espere de la vida , Lo he encontrado solo en ti..”
3. La Cosa Más Bella – Eros Ramazzotti
Eros Ramazzotti’s voice is unmistakeable, as are the lyrics in this classic.
4. Rayando El Sol – Maná
I love Maná, so this romantic song is one of my personal favorites. Anytime you hear this one, people start singing along too.
5. Te Amo
Of course, Franco de Vita and a song that croons Te amo over and over belong on the top love songs list.
6. Es Por Ti – Juanes
Juanes is another iconic Latin singer and Es por ti is one of his best love songs. I love this live version.
7. Si Tú No Estás Aquí
This is the essence of Latin music: guitar, lilting voice, and sentiment. Beautiful. Some songs capture the giddiness of new love; this one holds the depth of that couple who’s been through think and thin.
8. Sin Miedo a Nada – Alex Ubago
9. La Canción Más Bonita del Mundo – La Oreja de Van Gogh
This was one of the first songs I learned as a young Spanish speaker. Still love it!
10. Te Regalo una Rosa – Juan Luis Guerra
Here’s some Spanish love bachata-style (and incidentally, what we danced to at our wedding!).
11. Luz de Día – Enanitos Verdes
12.Yo No Sé Mañana – Luis Enrique
More lighthearted than most on this list, Yo no sé mañana speaks to the uncertainty of new love with an upbeat salsa tone.
13. Todo Cambió – Camila
