Watching music 4:38 videos is a good 4:07way to learn a language 5:02, odd thing is I was 2:44 hoping to 3;03 learn Spanish 59:58. Emilie Simon of La Marche de l'empereur fame sings for us. All from the glorious youtube. Other than the last one from the rather better google.video.

I adore the vocalist and the very beautiful but serious cellist.

Hmm.. the formatting of this post is a tiny trash can, overflowing with large bags that, under the pressure of their contained rotted eyeballs have split open on a busy thoroughfare. *Squelch*

La Casa Azul and Las Escarlatinas and other new(ish) Spanish bubblegum bands are good for Spanish, i find.

I was a teeny bit skeptical since the French have a habit of heaping praise on musicians and actresses who are uncommonly beautiful, which in the Anglo world is ... something to be skeptical of. But sometimes they're right, too. She's a bit Portishead and Bjork.
