Another in my occasional ‘songs that I like but you might not have heard’ series.

Except that I hadn’t heard this one either until Thursday last week.

So we had skied the day in wonderful sunshine. The afternoon had consisted of a couple of blacks on repeat, a number of reds, tame blues, some off piste moguls, and a longish blue taken at significant speed to head back to La Clusaz. Five o’clock, still buzzing with adrenalin we slid into a bar. Almost first up on the screen was Shakira and this song from last year. It also features Maluma, apparently a fellow Colombian. All new to me but I loved it.

I have to say that listening to it and watching it this evening it isn’t quite as good as I remembered it – perhaps the buzz of the slopes had heightened Shakira’s attraction – but I have always adored her singing in Spanish. And that face and body….

I saw her perform in London in 2010 and she was pure delight.

Anyway, as you know, I am always lost to a dancer.
