SLS – Breeze

This may surprise you, but I have not chosen a Taylor Swift song for today’s Song Lyric Sunday theme. Instead, I have picked a classic Madonna song. It is called “La Isla Bonita” and it’s great to dance to. I learnt my first salsa dance steps to this track and I love it!

So the writing of this song was a collaboration between Madonna, Patrick Leonard and Bruce Gaitsch.

¿Cómo puede ser verdad?

Last night I dreamt of San Pedro
Just like I’d never gone, I knew the song
A young girl with eyes like the desert
It all seems like yesterday, not far away

Tropical the island breeze
All of nature wild and free
This is where I long to be
La isla bonita

And when the samba played
The sun would set so high
Ring through my ears and sting my eyes
Your Spanish lullaby

I fell in love with San Pedro
Warm wind carried on the sea, he called to me
Te dijo te amo
I prayed that the days would last
They went so fast

Tropical the island breeze
All of nature wild and free
This is where I long to be
La isla bonita

And when the samba played
The sun would set so high
Ring through my ears and sting my eyes
Your Spanish lullaby

I want to be where the sun warms the sky
When it’s time for siesta you can watch them go by
Beautiful faces, no cares in this world
Where a girl loves a boy, and a boy loves a girl

Last night I dreamt of San Pedro
It all seems like yesterday, not far away

Tropical the island breeze
All of nature wild and free
This is where I long to be
La isla bonita

And when the samba played
The sun would set so high
Ring through my ears and sting my eyes
Your Spanish lullaby

Tropical the island breeze
All of nature wild and free
This is where I long to be
La isla bonita

And when the samba played
The sun would set so high
Ring through my ears and sting my eyes
Your Spanish lullaby

Te dijo te amo
El dijo que te ama

La isla bonita
Your Spanish lullaby

Great song and glad you shared it. Congratulations on stepping outside of Tay Tay even for a short time. I understand how hard it is to go past your favorite genre, much less your favorite artist. If I did that, you would get Elvis Presley ever week. LOL! 🙂

Thanks Lisa 🙂
I picked another artist for next week, but then the week after I think I am back to TayTay. She just has had so many albums and they all have twenty songs – it is so much fun to search through her collection.

Dang near! LOL! He is my number 1 performer, singer, ridiculous movie star (thanks to Colonel Parker) but I love him! I have Blue Hawaii on my DVR that never gets erased and I watch it often at night before bedtime. LOL! 🙂
