Q is for Qué Caro Es el Tiempo by El Canto del Loco

Now while I have a basic understanding of Spanish, so I can pick up the odd word when I listen to pop rock band El Canto del Loco, what I really love about their music is the sound.

I took part in a foreign exchange when I was in high school, and the Spanish girl I was partnered with gave me a CD with some of her favourite music on it, one of the artists on there was El Canto del Loco. While I couldn’t really understand the songs, it was definitely my kind of music. I love this sort of pop, punk, indie rock music.

Qué Caro Es el Tiempo is one of my favourite songs on the CD I was given. It’s a bit slower than El Canto del Loco’s other stuff, but it’s heartfelt and I love how it builds, bringing the piano, drums and more guitars as the song progresses.

I often find myself listening to El Canto del Loco’s music when I’m writing as I don’t understand the words I don’t get distracted from writing. Instead, I get lost in the music which is a lovely feeling. I’d definitely recommend listening to songs that aren’t in your own language.

  1. Thanks for this introduction.
    The lyrics are actually quite clear in this song. I’m going to investigate it further. I may be able to use it in some of my Spanish classes.

    1. No problem! Yeah some of their songs are quite fast paced but in others the words are really clear and it can be a fun way to improve language skills.
      My Spanish teacher actually played us one of their songs before – can’t remember which one though!
