Amores Perros – Love is a Bitch – Lyrics Translation

The film Amores Perros has been compared to films like Pulp Fiction because of its quality story and directing. From that film comes an excellent song by one of my favorite bands, Control Machete. There are only so many songs which words can really touch your soul and this song is one of them for me. I listened to it this morning and I just had to share. Amores Perros has been translated in some English markets as Love is a bitch, but like many other translations it falls short to really convey the message that the orignal language gave. I hope you enjoy the translation and get to listen to the song.

Gypsy – Gitana

Gitana – Gypsy by Willie Colon

As a kid, I spent hours learning the lyrics to this song. I had my first tape recorder and this song just really captivated my young mind. I had to be around 7 or 8 and I memorized all the lyrics. Now thinking for my Cielo’s mesmerizing eyes I thought of it again ;)
