Bohemian Rhapsody (Queen). I love this rock opera. Trivia: "Bohemian Rhapsody" is a song written by Freddie Mercury, originally recorded by the band Queen for their 1975 album A Night at the Opera. The song is a rock opera song and has a very unusual musical structure for a piece of popular music. Its three different sections have no chorus but both a cappella and heavy metal arrangements. Despite this, it was released as a single and became a huge commercial success, marking a decisive point in Queen's career and setting them on the way to become one of the world's biggest bands. The single was accompanied by what is generally cited as a groundbreaking "promotional video", which helped establish the visual language of the modern music video. The song was included in all Queen's subsequent live concert performances, and still enjoys great popularity all over the world.

Even if you don't speak Spanish, I recommend listening to the song 'A Puro Dolor' (or in English, 'Purest of Pain') by Son by Four. I heard this song for the first time when I was in Costa Rica. As soon as I heard it I wanted to know who it was and what the name of the song was. I did not even understand all the words at first, but just the sound of it attracted me. There are actually 3 versions (that I know of) of "A Puro Dolor." One is the salsa version. Another is slow and romantic. And the third version is in English. The English version is my least favorite of the three. It is probably because I heard the song for the first time in Spanish and the English version sounds kind of strange to me. Plus, I think Spanish is such a romantic language. The main idea of this song is that this guy has not seen this woman in a long time. He calls her up because he can't take it anymore. He thought he could live without her but he was wrong. He is dying to see her. He wants the fantasy back. The pain he feels is slow and strong and his life is empty without her.
