A heartwarming blast from the past with Miguel Bose’s ‘Morir de Amor’ and Los Angeles Azules
As some of you may know, I write a “new music” article monthly for another dance website, and it’s a long one that takes me a few days to prepare as I listen to new songs and select the ones that I like best. I’m in this process right now and just finished listening to Los Angeles Azules’ new album ESTO SI ES CUMBIA, which is pretty good as the group adds cumbia rhythms to classic Latin songs by well-known artists such as Pepe Aguilar, Natalia Lafourcade, Gloria Trevi, and so on.
Anyhow, I got to Miguel Bose’s “Morir de Amor,” which I literally hadn’t listened to in decades, and yet, I found myself singing along, remembering every word in the lyrics as if I had been singing it every day. And this time I can dance to it! It tickled me tremendously, and so I figured that if it did it to me, it’ll do the same to others. Something tells me that my Costa Ricans out there, who grew up listening to the same music I grew up listening to, will take to it right away.
So below is the YouTube video, and further down a link to Amazon.com where you can buy it. Enjoy it. I sure did!
