Shakira : De música ligera

Long before she was a guest star on The Wizards of Waverly Place (the highlight of her career?), Shakira was your average hip-shaking Colombian trying to make it in the world of pop music. When she was 20, someone was smart enough to book her a slot at La Rata Caliente singing Soda Stereo’s “De música ligera.” Now I find La Rata Caliente (The Hot Rat) an interesting name for a club. But after watching this video of her performance, I think the name actually refers to the smarmy emcee who is dripping all over the young Colombian singer. Am I right?

Ella durmió
Al calor de las masas

Y yo desperté
Queriendo soñarla
Algún tiempo atrás
Pensé en escribirle
Que nunca sorteé
Las trampas del amor

De aquel amor
De música ligera
Nada nos libra
Nada mas queda

No le enviaré
Cenizas de rosas
Ni pienso evitar
Un roce secreto

De aquel amor
de música ligera
Nada nos libra
Nada mas queda
