Are you ready for some sweet Spanish music?Â I’ve got a Friday Song for youâ€¦
La canciÃ³n de viernes:Â HoyÂ by Gloria Estefan
Gloria Estefan released this song in 2003 in both Spanish and English. The English version is called Wrapped.
The video for this song was filmed in Peru in the legendary city of Machu Picchu; and the lyrics for the song were written by Gian Marco Zignago, a Peruvian songwriter and singer.
Here are the lyrics in Spanish for Hoy, the (almost) literal translation and the English lyrics for Wrapped. I’ve included lyrics up to the end of the first chorus.
Hope you enjoy the music.Â Have a wonderful weekend!
Thanks for sharing this song! I love the more literal translation. So poetic and pretty. 🙂
It is. Don’t see why there are so many changes in the “Wrapped” version… but I’m not a songwriter 😉
It is interesting to see how the two versions are alike and different all at the same time.
Yup. Language. Lol
I love Gloria Estefan. Thanks for sharing!
Very welcome! I love her 80s and 90s stuff as well. Will have to go play some 🙂
Definitely. I loved the movie “Music of the Heart,” too.
Love her!! Thanks for the translation!
Her music!!! â¤ï¸ðŸ’œðŸ’š 🙂
It’s been a while since I’ve heard this song. I used to like it a lot back then. Happy Friday to you!
It is rather soothing. Lol.
Great song!! Thanks for sharing 🙂
You’re welcome 🙂
