OMG- I thought "I need to know " was just a couple years old. I just looked it up and it was released in 1999. Seems like yesterday....

El Cumbanchero was a tough one that I learned about 6 months ago. I get requests for this one all the time, now. It took about two weeks to learn the lyrics in Latin. Here's a good rendition of the song I found.

I think I could sing it in Spanish but Latin would be even harder smile

For "new" we've been doing Adele's version of the not so new Bob Dylan song, "To Make You Feel My Love". Just doing it solo piano to start then bringing in some warm pad sounds to build a bit towards the end. It's one of the few songs we leave fairly 'naked' without any vocal harmony. Makes a nice sonic lull and quiet spot in the program.

smile Obviously, I meant to say Spanish. I often wondered, though, why Latin Music is not called Spanish Music. And, of course, if the song is Brazilian, which is referred to as Latin American, why is it sang in Portuguese, which to me is a lot more difficult than Spanish. But then, in American we sing in British, don't we? wink

Cheers,

Gary cool

I appreciate the traditional Spanish version of El Cumbachero by Puerto Rican composer Rafael Hernandez Marin, yet interestingly enough, another rendition I also like is the rock guitar version that Finnish band, Topi Sorsakosiki & the Agents did back in 1984. Thanks to my Synthzone finnish buddy Heikki (aka: the Wolf) for introducing me to this band and Finnish Iskelma music in general.

Gary ... here is a version of Al Di La I just put together that might help you with the pronunciation ... An friend of mine from Italy finds it 'interesting' that I sing Italian with an American accent ... grin

http://soundcloud.com/tony-mads-usa/al-di-la-for-gary-6-5-12

I 'assume' you have the Italian lyrics to work with ... If not let me know and I will e-mail them to you ...
Buona Fortuna amico mio,
