Lucky 1 23-11-2020 03:30 PM

Okay, some explaining....I live on Mustang Island just south of Port Aransas TX and a bit north of Corpus Christi TX so this next one is kinda our "home town girl" from Corpus Christi who made it big (but was tragically murdered in 1995 at age 23)

Selena Quintanilla who many consider to be the queen of Tejano music. Tejano means a mix of Spanish and Texas cultures.

Selena did it all from traditional Spanish music to Tejano to pop (in English) and when she played the Astrodome in Houston TX she sold the place out....more than 65,000 people packed into the Astrodome...holding the record there for ticket sales...even out selling KISS in that venue.

Selena holds a special place in Texans hearts...the poor girl from the west side who made it big only to be tragically murdered......in death she is has been literally immortalized in Texas.

So, I'm going to give everyone a taste of what she did....

First something in traditional Spanish

No Me Queda Mas (there's nothing more) A young woman lamenting the loss of her lover.

Now a Spanish song in Tejano

Bidi Bidi Bom Bom (She's saying that her heart goes "bidi bidi bom bom" when she sees a boy she likes)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RKGbjJarMeA

Now some pop in English....this one was released posthumously a couple of months after she died

Dreaming Of You

Lucky1 -Thank you! Re: Selena
Because of you I found so much about her I didn't know!
I left TX years ago so was not aware.

Did they find out who did it? A rejected fan?

A couple of female singers I admire - who get right into - embody the spirit of things:

Everyone immediately knew who did it.... Yolanda Saldivar ,head of Selena's fan club had been embezzling money....Selena confronted her in private and she shot her.

This is very much the short version...a lot when on...

Saldivar is serving life in prison without parole.

Okay....one more!

Como La Flor (like a flower) Live at the Houston Astrodome

Rest in Peace Selena....como mi duele ella se ha idio (how it hurts me she's gone)

ImthatIm listened to all of the Playing for Change this morning! Great way to start the day! Hopeful! :smile:

sentient, I really enjoyed the lyrics of the songs.

Lucky 1 thank you for sharing Selena, she had such innocence and such a beautiful voice. It is so sad, her story.

And Miss H, Still waiting for you to bare your musical soul. (P.S.- I like the new color. Does this mean you passed your test?)
