This CD just puts me in a good mood. It makes me want to sing-a-long, if only my daughter would let me, and to relax with a tall bubbly drink. Oh, yes, it’s also totally entertaining for your bilingual or Spanish-learning child as well. Thomas, AKA the Spanglish Wrangler, knows his music. The birth of his two children, coupled with his love of Spanish, led him on a journey to compose 12 enchanting songs where Spanish and English effortlessly flow to the beat of blues, acoustic rock, and overall good-vibe music.
Amongst my favorite tracks is the acoustic”Emociones” where he grooves about basic emotions: “When I’m triste I’ll cry” or “My head is high when I’m orgulloso.” The first time we heard it my daughter proclaimed: “Me no cry. Me feliz!” And me feliz, too.
You won’t be able to stop yourself from singing along with his translation of the classic “You Are My Sunshine” which he titled “Eres Mi Vida.” I know, this song has been done and redone so many times, but the Spanglish Wrangler hit the mark here converting it into a soft, yet rhythmic, acoustic melody in Spanish you’ll want to sing while in a lovely embrace. Ok, again, if my daughter will let me!
