Me gustan los aviones, me gustas tú,
me gusta viajar, me gustas tú,
me gusta la mañana, me gustas tú,
me gusta el viento, me gustas tú,
me gusta soñar, me gustas tú,
me gusta la mar, me gustas tú,

Qué voy a hacer, je ne sais pas
qué voy a hacer, je ne sais plus,
qué voy a hacer, je suis perdu
¿qué horas son mi corazón?,

Me gusta la moto, me gustas tú,
me gusta correr, me gustas tú,
me gusta la lluvia, me gustas tú,
me gusta volver, me gustas tú,
me gusta marihuana, me gustas tú,
me gusta colombiana, me gustas tú,
me gusta la montaña, me gustas tú,
me gusta la noche (me gustas tú).

Qué voy a hacer, je ne sais pas
qué voy a hacer, je ne sais plus,
qué voy a hacer, je suis perdu
¿qué horas son mi corazón?,

(Doce, un minuto)

Me gusta la cena, me gustas tú,
me gusta la vecina, me gustas tú,
(Radio reloj: una de la mañana)
me gusta su cocina, me gustas tú,
me gusta camelar, me gustas tú,
me gusta la guitarra, me gustas tú,
me gusta el reggae, me gustas tú,

Qué voy a hacer, je ne sais pas
qué voy a hacer, je ne sais plus,
qué voy a hacer, je suis perdu

qué voy a hacer, je suis perdu
¿qué hora son mi corazón?

(qué voy a hacer, je ne sais plus,
qué voy a hacer, je ne sais plus,
qué voy a hacer, je suis perdu),
¿qué hora son mi corazón...?
(qué voy a hacer, je ne sais plus,
qué voy a hacer, je ne sais plus,
qué voy a hacer, je suis perdu),
¿qué hora son mi corazón...?
¿qué hora son mi corazón...?

The French (quote unquote) as a breed of New Yorker, probably only applies to some folks from Paris.  The rest of the country is not like that.

But then I don't have problems with folks from Paris either (though I would personally never go on a vacation to Paris).  Guess it helps to be fluent in French. 

But I understand.  I know that some stoutly unilingual North American folks insist on language purity and wish languages to remain static.

If you grew up in Latin America, that underlying radio narrative combining time-keeping, weather, advertising comments...and then all the musical layers on top...it just captures the whole identity from Río Grande to Tierra del Fuego. It's quite an achievement in my view.

Plus, my 15-year old heard this for the first time when he was in his mother's tummy and we were on holiday in Barcelona (where Manu Chau lives), he then became addicted to it and, being on the autistic spectrum, it became the routine song for the drive to school in Devon... each curve on that country road to Blackawton primary school was met with a "me gustas tú" and "5 de la mañana...remedio chino e infalible" was the cue to get out of the car!

I put the CD on the other day and he walked by me, he gave me a quick look and a fleeting smile. Me gustas tú.
Love this, so much fun!

I think this is a fun little track, and I can nearly understand both the French and Spanish.  It's a 7 for me.  PEACE and LONG LIVE RP!!

Pretty funny coming from somebody whose last name is from Spanish (or Portuguese) origin.rusk (n.)"light, crisp bits of bread or biscuit," 1590s, from Spanish or Portuguese rosca "roll, twist of bread," literally "coil, anything round and spiral," of unknown origin, perhaps from a pre-Latin Iberian word.

Perhaps Manu Chao should have learned more Spanish before he started writing lyrics in it.

Welcome to the RP forum Oscar.

I think you mean Manu Chao is not a Spanish chap - not "crap" which is something completely different although some commentators here think he is both!

Here is a summary and highly personal comment as to why Americans (and British) do not love France....  not least because there is still a lingering belief that France rolled over a little too easily to the Germans in the Second World War, The Allies had to save France but there was not much gratitude for the Allied sacrifices by the French authorities afterwards and they made out that in fact it was the the French Resistance that won their Country back.

Post WW2 General De Gaulle made himself unpopular with the British and Americans and then there was Vietnam - a mess that France started and the Americans tried to solve at great cost but in the end unsuccessfully

Finally, French in America is sometimes associated with New Orleans sleaze, Haitian Voodoo etc and the language itself is disliked by English speakers unless you are an Francophile.

However you are Spanish and your language is obviously increasingly spoken in the USA spreading from Latin America so you are safe from all my sweeping generalisations.

Ha!  That reminds me of dropping acid back in the day and then hearing that Popcorn song by Hot Butter on the radio.  It was just too, too weird.  Nearly didn't make it back.  This would be the same, I'm afraid.
This is a great album, from which this excellent tune is one of the more mediocre selections.   I do hope more tunes from MC are in the offing...

Manu Madness by ~masterfilth

Manu Chao in Prospect Park, Brooklyn

Manu Chao & Radio Bemba - Machine Gun, Live Baionarena (2008)

"Próxima
Estacion: Esperanza! "




About 10 months ago, I saw Manu Chao live in Kazan, Russia—excellent show.  I like him/them live better than in the studio. 
"Je ne sais pas  (I don't know)
 Je ne sais plus  (I don't know anymore)
 Je suis perdu"  (I am lost)

I wondered how that little bit of French crept into a Spanish song.
Wikipedia to the rescue:

"Manu Chao (born José-Manuel Thomas Arthur Chao on June 21, 1961), is a French folk singer of Spanish origin (Basque and Galician). He sings in French, Spanish, English, Arabic, and Portuguese and occasionally in other languages."

Ah-hah!  {#Smile}

p.s. as for 'Me Gustas Tu' - could that roughly translate as:  "I find you tasty"?
       I can relate!  {#Wink}

Still fun and good of heart, after all these years!
I have always really liked this song, ever since the first time I heard it on one of Chicago's "Radio en Español" stations. It's kinda bouncy and fun.
Reminds me of when I was in high school...
Je suis perdu  {#Rolleyes}
Is there ANYTHING this guy doesn't like?

While I really liked some of the other songs played on their countdown, I never knew what to think of this one.

Fast forward just over eight years, and I had forgotten all about this song, until, to my suprise, I hear it on RP. Funny how a song can take you right back to a specific place and time. I immediately had memories of our trip flood my mind.

One more reason why RP is great.

As far as the song goes, still not sure if I like it or not.

Oh. putain, j'adore cette histoire. Moi-même, j'ai des souvenirs de cette chanson, de bons souvenirs. Thanks for sharing yours.

The video for this song was in their Top 20 countdown everyday (along with "Can't Get You Outta My Head" by Kylie Minogue, "Le Vent Nous Portera" by Noir Desir, "The Road to Mandalay" by Robbie Williams, and a few others). While I really liked some of the other songs played on their countdown, I never knew what to think of this one.

Fast forward just over eight years, and I had forgotten all about this song, until, to my suprise, I hear it on RP. Funny how a song can take you right back to a specific place and time. I immediately had memories of our trip flood my mind.

One more reason why RP is great.

As far as the song goes, still not sure if I like it or not.

My Spanish teacher told us to NEVER use the term "me gusta" about a person in polite conversation. Something to do with equating that person with ice cream, I think.

But then, he was a Pentecostal missionary, so I guess it figures.

Anyhow, me gusta mucho. No me importa un bledo, cada! {#Twisted}

 
I find nothing denegrating about being associated with ice cream. 

Is it cliche yet to say "me gusta"?

A mi me gusta mucho.

YEAH!

RP never fails to amaze me.
