(¿Qué horas son, mi corazón?)
(Te lo dije bien clarito)
(Permanece a la escucha)
(Permanece a la escucha)

Doce de la noche en La Habana, Cuba
Once de la noche en San Salvador, El Salvador
Once de la noche en Managua, Nicaragua

Me gustan los aviones, me gustas tú
Me gusta viajar, me gustas tú
Me gusta la mañana, me gustas tú
Me gusta el viento, me gustas tú
Me gusta soñar, me gustas tú
Me gusta la mar, me gustas tú

¿Qué voy a hacer?
Je ne sais pas
¿Qué voy a hacer?
Je ne sais plus
¿Qué voy a hacer?
Je suis perdu
(¿Qué horas son, mi corazón?)

Me gusta la moto, me gustas tú
Me gusta correr, me gustas tú
Me gusta la lluvia, me gustas tú
Me gusta volver, me gustas tú
Me gusta marihuana, me gustas tú
Me gusta Colombiana, me gustas tú
Me gusta la montaña, me gustas tú
Me gusta la noche (me gustas tú)

¿Qué voy a hacer?
Je ne sais pas
¿Qué voy a hacer?
Je ne sais plus
¿Qué voy a hacer?
Je suis perdu
(¿Qué horas son, mi corazón?)

Doce, un minuto

Me gusta la cena, me gustas tú
Me gusta la vecina, me gustas tú (Radio Reloj)
Me gusta su cocina, me gustas tú (una de la mañana)
Me gusta camelar, me gustas tú
Me gusta la guitarra, me gustas tú
Me gusta el reggae, me gustas tú

¿Qué voy a hacer?
Je ne sais pas
¿Qué voy a hacer?
Je ne sais plus
¿Qué voy a hacer?
Je suis perdu
(¿Qué horas son, mi corazón?)

Me gusta la canela, me gustas tú
Me gusta el fuego, me gustas tú
Me gusta menear, me gustas tú
Me gusta la Coruña, me gustas tú
Me gusta Malasaña, me gustas tú
Me gusta la castaña, me gustas tú
Me gusta Guatemala, me gustas tú

¿Qué voy a hacer?
Je ne sais pas
¿Qué voy a hacer?
Je ne sais plus
¿Qué voy a hacer?
Je suis perdu

    My Interpretation

    Ok, here's what the song is about people. I worked this out on a very hazy night. It's about Manu Chao being lost in the world and not knowing where he fits in, yaknow, due to his multicultural nature and being kinda French kinda Spanish, you know.

    Here's the evidence, bitches.

    "Doce de la noche en La Habana, Cuba Once de la noche en San Salvador, El Salvador Once de la noche en Managua, Nicaragua" followed by "Que hora son mi corazon?" (what time is my heart).

    The man clearly does not know what 'time' his heart his, i.e. where in the world does he truly belong? To what time zone does his heart beat to?

    2) This is further hinted at in the chorus. "Que voy a hacer, je suis perdu". Which means what am I going to do, I am lost. It's split between two different languages - this shows that he can't choose one COS HE FEELS LOST.

    3) Listing the things he likes. He's trying to think about all the things he likes to see if they can help him find out where he belongs. Me gusta la Coruña, me gustas tu Me gusta Malasaña, me gustas tu Me gusta la Castaña, me gustas tu Me gusta Guatemala, me gustas tu. He likes ALL of those places and more. But which is truly for him? That's why he doesn't know what to do and is lost.

    There you go, may as well close this comment section now.

    Para mi esta Cancio se trata de que uno no debe estar atado a solo un grupo de cosas. Es algo normal que a uno le gusten muchas cosas al mismo tiempo. Y le dice a la que le gusta ahora como es él. Le gusta la chica y al mismo tiempo muchas cosas. Y no va a dejar de hacer las cosas que le gustan solo porque va a estar con ella.

    ¡me gusta esta canción! ~_^ I agree with little girl, it is funny. i love it. i think my favourite part is "me gusta la vecina, me gustas tú, me gusta su cocina, me gustas tú" -- i like my neighbor, i like her kitchen. lol. and the hint of sadness displayed by the chorus is contrasting and interesting.

    well, this song is about sharing everything with the person you like, life is beautiful and so is the person you're sharing it with. and as for the chorus with the french part: What am I gonna do- I dont know What am I gonna do- I dont know anymore What am I gonna do- I'm lost What time is it, my heart? (or my dear ) - in spanish "mi corazon" is like saying "my dear"

    this part just resembles manu chao's character, he travels all over the world to break life's everyday routine.

    For what it's worth, here are my two cents: This song brings to mind two people, in love, making love all night long. In between every phrase is "me gustas tú" (i like you, or literally, you please me). Also, in the chorus, we constantly have "que horas son mi corazon" (what time is it, my heart/dear). In the background you can hear a radio clock counting out the hours, going from eleven at night to 5 in the morning. As for the list of things he likes, I don't think I could find too many things I dislike while making love. Let me know what you think of this idea.

    this song is just so cute! I like Spencer's idea of making all night long but I'd have to disagree. In context, this song is from the album "Proxima Estacion" which means "Next Station" I believe. I keep imagining him on a train station platform performing and a PA system 'counting' the hours. Manu Chao is multilingual and is a recognized artist in European and Latin countries. So he travels a lot.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.

Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
