every time i re-discover my Dreaming of You CD, it’s my favorite again, and i can’t stop listening to it for weeks. Selena is still the cat’s pajamas!
after Meet the Press on Sunday mornings, everything is infomercials and shit. so today i was channel surfing, and the movie Selena was on TNT or some channel like that (you know, the ones that play underappreciated bad movies from the past 10-15 years.) and i remembered how much i loved her back in the day. i had her Dreaming of You CD and it was my favorite. i remember reading the CD booklet and trying to figure out what the Spanish lyrics meant (my espanol wasn’t so good back then.) the songs “I Could Fall in Love” and “Dreaming of You” were the biggest songs off that CD (yeah, now you know who i’m talking about), but “Como la Flor” or “Amor Prohibido” were my favorite songs of hers.
i also remember seeing her outfits and thinking how tacky and cheesy they were. not anymore. thems were awesoooome! but her voice was amazing.
to be honest, i’m not a huge fan of norteña or conjunto music (Mexican polka-sounding music.) but every once in a while, i’ll be in the mood where it’s exactly what i want to hear. it’s fun! and it’s impossible to take yourself seriously when you’re listening to it.
but Selena was the shit! she’s the reason i got interested in tejano music. it’s the best stuff to listen to on a summer afternoon. it makes me feel cool. not temperature-wise, but aweseomeness-wise. i’m gonna start listening to it now to get into the warm-weather mentality. viva verano!
