    As some of you know, I'm spanish and, without being really proud of my country and/or how it has been going for the last century, I do have a feeling of love for some parts of our culture. I consider myself an ignorant, yet I like music quite enough and, after talking to Ghost and being asked to make a youtube playlist, I've decided to share a few songs and names, mostly trying to get those guys -who aren't really that known as they should in my opinion, although Paco de Lucía does have a big name so he might not really fit the list- get into you and your common playlists if you like them.

    I am, however, and as I said, an ignorant, so I can only post some of the most 'known' names.

    Most Paco de Lucía songs are beautiful, for example:

    Triana, a spanish flamenco-rock that mixed flamenco and progresive rock in the 70's:

    Isaac Albeniz, to me the greatest 'classical' spanish composer -although he's not really classical, but whatever-:

    (Played by the spanish pianist Alicia de Larrocha)

    Manuel de Falla, who was a great composer (and friend of Albeniz):

    (de Larrocha too)

    Francisco Tarrega (another spanish composer, this one for the spanish guitar):

    (This might sound strangely known if you own a NOKIA phone)

    Spanish zarzuela (kind of opera that only exists here and is always happy, uptempo, talks about normal 'people' issues) by one of the greatest composers of the genre:

    Also, if you wish, you can ask me for some particular kind of music and to my degree I'll try to help you find it. I also like music from all over the world, so I'd love to hear any songs you like.

      For several years I've been a fan of modern spanis music such as raggaeton and other stuff like bachata

      That stuff is normally from South America, not from Spain. For granted, we speak the same language and our cultures are really similar, but at that point I'd say we're different. Also, I don't really like that music...

      Sometimes I become a bit 'dense' when talking about culture, Spain and other related durbbies; probably that dense because I don't know enough to be concise and, more than that, probably wrong. But meh, opinions, who cares...

        I guess it's pretty good for dancing and clubbing; it's very popular here too and girls get crazy when they get some of it... I don't really understand why, though.

        It's provocative lol. Lots of hidden meanings, gives them a romantic feel. :razz:

        'Romantic'. If you understand the language most of the songs are just about fucking 12 diff. women and treating them all as meat-holes-that-eventually-talk. Meh. It's a bit dull if you ask me.

        lol Yeah, I do and that's what I was relaying when I said it's provacative. Like hacerte mi mujeres might sound like become my wife but it's really saying let's fuck each other. It's suggestive music, and that's why the young people like it so much.
