9 Songs That Are MUCH Better In Spanish (VIDEOS)

Latinos are loyal to their artists. We buy their albums, follow them on tour and are rooting for them from the time they started out with poetic tunes, jet black hair and a rocker attitude and after they flipped the switch, went blonde, dainty and started dancing very sensually -- yes, we're looking at you Shakira.

It's not that we're not happy they reached crossover stardom, we are (sort of). The truth is, sometimes, we really miss the old them. We're nostalgic for the time when Marc Anthony, Ricky Martin and Shakira were artists you only listened to at home and with your Latino friends.

Don't get us wrong, we're not trying to be selfish (but we can't control it). And in honor of that love for Spanish music we've taken the liberty of choosing 9 songs that are a thousand times better in Spanish.

Perhaps not all of these were originally recorded by Latino artists, but it's safe to say they sure knew how to give it their own flair.
