Shakira & Alejandro Sanz, "La Tortura" 1
We LOVE this song! Also, every woman has had a man in their lives that has driven them crazy, but probably not all of them have been as freaking hot as Sanz. He's a verified bad boy and Shakira is at her sultry best.
Juan Luis Guerra, "Señales de Humo" 2
Can you blame us for barely being able to get through this song without shedding a tear? It's all about a man who loves a woman very much, but is having trouble expressing the depth of his emotions. This is one of the most beautiful love poems we've ever heard, set to a plaintive rumba--then boom! You can totally get your dance on when the rhythm switches to a mambo about half way through.
Selena, "I Could Fall in Love" 3
Selena Quintanilla's sweet voice makes us fall in love with her and whoever happens to be standing next to us every time we hear it. In light of her tragic death, the lyrics have taken on an almost eerie quality. "I Could Fall in Love" was the the first single off of Selena's crossover effort, Dreaming of You, the only album by a Latina artist (recorded mostly in Spanish) to debut at the #1 spot on the billboard Hot 200.
Julio Iglesias, "To All the Girls I've Loved Before" 5
At the risk of bringing to mind Abuelita (definitely not what you want if you trying to set a romantic mood), we had to include Julio Iglesias because he is, after all, one of the most famous Latin crooners of all time. Every time we hear this song, we can imagine all the ladies screeching at his concerts.
Cheo Feliciano, "Amada Mía" 6
I got to see Cheo sing this very song before he passed away this past April, and you know what happened next? A lady ran up to the stage and threw her panties at him. No joke! It was hysterical, but it also proved that no matter how old you are, if you still got it, you still got it. Go Cheo!
Luis Miguel, "Sabor a Mí" 7
Originally written by Alvaro Carrillo in 1959, this classic romantic ballad is off Luis Miguel's third album of ballads. "El Sol de Mexico" doesn't disappoint with his version, which doesn't shock us one bit given his insane reputation as a lady killer.
Pablo Alborán, "Solamente Tú" 8
As if Pablo Alborán's dashing good looks weren't enough, he also happens to be an incredibly gifted songwriter. The Spanish singer's beautiful breakout hit "Solamente Tú" is a classic love song that combines profoundly poetic lyrics with a gorgeous melody that displays a hint of gypsy influence.
Marc Anthony, "Valió la Pena" 9
Marc's classic, hard-driving love song to his now ex-wife Jennifer Lopez is super fun to dance to. It's also an ode to a relationship that he'd been chasing for over a decade, and according to him, all the drama and divorces were totally worth it. Even if he's singing a different tune these days, this jam always puts a smile on our face.
