Ricky Martin is probably best known for La Copa De La Vida. It is such an upbeat song that even for someone who is not into loud music I still enjoy it tremendously. That's an awesome piece of music. Very football-y :D It is definitely one of the best football songs I've ever had the pleasure to listen to. This one has certainly make its mark in our consciousness, hasn't it?
If you had told me last week I'd be writing a Ricky Martin review, I'd have snoot at the idea. Ricky Martin, despite having bought one of his CDs, is not my type of singers. For some reason, I'm just not into him even though he's better looking than Enrique Iglesias and possibly dressed better than Marc Anthony. He hasn't had me "dwell" on his music and hence I never did became a fan. I didn't even know he's Puerto Rican until just when I looked up Wikipedia for his bio. Sometimes though, as one ages, one has more time to appreciate others and give others another chance. Hence, instead of being restless I learned to stop for a moment to listen. Actually, I'm kinda of stuck at home right now coz I'm having a horrible sore-throat; I am voiceless. The only way I could "talk" is to write reviews here on Lunch, haha! Now you know why I've been putting up tons of reviews on musicians the last few hours! I can't use my mouth, but I can certainly listen ;-) Blessing in disguise, eh?!
In life, we talked more than we listened. And sometimes, perhaps, one of those rare times, we are blessed with the chance to truly listen. When that happens, sit still and listen, and you might, like me, find something that you have missed all along...
