Something to enjoy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sArDRGzBAmE

That was a strange video. Who was the lady behind the singer. Anyway, it was strange but well done.

That singer is creepy....

It's Charly García! King of rock nacional! Genius. Did you guys see him when he was younger? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S72mxiVgV4E
I like the fact that he's an odd fellow.

To continue this sort of strange video scene, how about this. Its Dominican Rock. Yes, it seems there are Rock groups in the land of Merengue and Bachata. music (the Domincan Republic).

I like the song. I enjoy how they have a rock song but still have their Dominican sound to it, keeping to their roots.

Are any of you Soda Stereo fans?

That Dominican Band song sounded more like Reggae. And never heard of Soda Stereo. You seem to like Argentinian bands. One of the few Argentinian bands that is popular here is "Banda XXI". But there music tends to lean toward the tropical music sound.

This is the band from a local show from Argentina
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Q-D0yuumcE

This is the band being interviewed last year on an Argentinian show.

So they are classified has a Cuarteto Cordobés band. Its a type of Sub-genre of Argentinian music.

Must admit, my knowledge of the South American music scene is non-existent...

Soda Stereo is not only the BEST latin rock band, it is THE BEST band ever. My Spanish isn't even that good but there is no band like them.

My favourite: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ixjMZeQE4mo

Neragua, especially for you, a song about Buenos Aires: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nDk7WgigT-w

Rio Cana, Banda XXI is something I'd enjoy on the radio but wouldn't buy the CD. Having said that I have 4 Soda Stereo CD's and 5 Gustavo Cerati (lead singer) solo album CD's.

I'm really passionate about them. I love my music, rock music, and to me Soda Stereo is better than Pink Floyd, Fleetwood Mac, The Beatles, KISS and such. But everyone has their own taste.

Sorry I can get very annoying with songs. So many interesting stuff I'd love to share, but if it annoys you to listen to them, it's ok. Just keep sharing yours, I enjoy seeing and listening to stuff I don't know.
