Sola (Then)  performed by Rocio Durcal  1977
Composed by Antonio Morales/ Simon Napier Bell

This is my most favorite song in the world. I love it because it is a classic, latin, late 1970's, sultry, soft, dinner party or alone-with-someone-special type of track. The instrumentation is not totally typical of latin music (fast rhythm, very ornate), it is soft and easy. The vocals are absolutely velvety and very sensual. Although it is a "sad" song, it is one of those songs that makes you want think about that special certain someone.

from Una Vez Mas (Ariola LA-045)
available on CD - Rocio Durcal – Su Historia y Éxitos Musicales Vol. 1 (BMG/Ariola (2004))

You Will Remember Me (Detalhes)  performed by Roberto Carlos  1981
Composed by Roberto Carlos-Erasmo Carlos

This is another one of those latin songs that was translated to English for the benefit of those that never heard of Roberto Carlos or his original version of this very popular song (Detalhes). It is a beautiful yet tragic love song. I prefer the original, although this version's orchestration and vocals are very similar to the original.

from Roberto Carlos '81 (CBS 850.295/4-464255), available on CD (CBS)

Te Quiero Tal Cómo Eres (Just The Way You Are)  performed by Jose Jose  1977
Composed by Billy Joel

This is an "excelente" version of Billy Joel's version of "Just The Way You Are". This album was recorded in 1977, beginning his era with BMG/ Ariola records. The executives, happy to have a performer like JOSE JOSE, provided him with the best musicians, numbers and producers of the time. Included in this album are 2 numbers by Mexico's greatest: Juan Gabriel ("Ya lo pasado, pasado" & "Ahora No !"). Among others credited are Napoleon ("Lo que no fue, no sera"), Adan Torres("Almohada"). Of the 10 numbers included, 7 were top ten hits in Mexico, Colombia and the U.S. Leaving disco to other performers that needed to launch their productions to the international market, Jose Jose's album is just pure old-fashioned latin love songs, songs still heared today.

from Lo Pasado, Pasado (Ariola LAN - 127), available on CD (Ariola)

Mi Querido Amor (My Cherie Amour)  performed by Cristian Castro  1994
Composed by Stevie Wonder/Henry Cosby/Sylvia Moy

I love this Spanish version of the Stevie Wonder classic because it the new instrumentation. It is still very Stevie Wonder with a new, latin flair. The vocals are absolutely amazing, this guy can really sing.

from El Camino Del Alma (Fonovisa SPCD - 0503), available on CD

Poxa (Pôxa)  performed by Evandro Marinho  2001
Composed by Gilson de Souza

I love this song, it reminds me why I love Brazilian music. Its very sexy, sultry and classically bossa nova. There about 50 versions, but this one I enjoy a lot. Any other recommendations?

from O Som Do Barzinho vol. 6, available on CD
