You Want To Talk About Romantic?

Well, let me tell you - Spanish is the way to go.

I recently bought an external hard drive (500 GBs, people. 500!) to upload all my music and documents onto (and clear up much needed space on my laptop). And since then, I've been popping CD after CD and listening to a couple songs that I'd forgotten existed. And I've realized my collection of Latin music is much larger than I thought. And I also realized that, although I'm not one for romantic music at all, I must admit that hearing love poetry being sung in Spanish sounds so much more romantic and touching than it ever has being sung in English. Perhaps many of you may not be able to appreciate this (not speaking Spanish and all), but gosh darnit (and I hate to admit it) I think I could let myself be serenaded by a couple of these Spanish love songs.

And believe me, hearing someone tell you, "Te amo" is so much more heart-fluttering than "I love you." Gosh. English can be such a bland-sounding language.

Hm, not a big fan of French. It's all right, but when it comes to romantic, sensual languages, I think the top one is Portuguese (Brazilian portuguese, anyway). Now I just need a hot Brazilian. :)
