I've been watching "Que Bonito Amor" since it aired nearly 2 months ago, and so far, this telenovela is pretty good(although it takes at least a half hour before the first commercial break). But the purpose of this post is about a song that is played in certain scenes within "QBA." That song is by the group, Reik. I've heard the original version of this particular song which is Pop sounding in a commercial featuring the group on TV and being played on the stereo systems at either El Pollo Loco or Pollo Campero restaurants. But in "QBA", the song is played in a Mariachi style. The question I have is what is the name of this particular song by Reik? I'm asking because I would like to add the original version of the song to a disc on another Spanish music CD compilation that I make at times. If anybody can provide me with some feedback, please do. Gracias.
Reik recorded ranchera versions of “Yo Quisiera” and “Creo en Ti,” which you’ll recognize from QBA. You can hear both songs (in their original and ranchera versions) online.
I’ve also been watching QBA since its debut. I thoroughly enjoy it--especially the music. In fact, thanks to QBA, I’ve developed an interest in mariachi/ranchera music. Vicente Fernandez’ QBA theme song is my latest earworm, and I recently added his compilation CD, Historia de un Idolo, to my music collection.
I normally hang out over in La Patrona, but I check the QBA board from time to time. Enjoy!
Well, the particular song I was asking about was "Creo En Ti." I found the original version on Youtube last week. I'm not sure about "Yo Quisiera" though. Vicente is a legend in Mariachi music. My grandparents introduced me to his music when I was a kid. But when it comes to the Spanish music CDs that I make which I call them "Variedades", the music is a variety of Mariachi/Ranchera, Banda, Norteno, Cumbia, Salsa, Rock En Espanol, Pop, Reggaeton, and even the theme songs to Telenovelas too. But "Creo En Ti", I'm planning to put on an upcoming CD. I already have two other Reik songs on a CD already. Those two particular songs are "Inolvidable" and theme song to the telenovela "Mi Pecado" which featured actress/singer Maite Perroni(RBD: "Rebelde") who was the female lead role from that particular telenovela. And I should be making a new set, hopefully tomorrow.
