Yo dije que no
Ella dijo sí
Yo dije que sí

Ella dijo no
Al final no importa, es algo que dios ya decidió

La muerte dijo sí
Yo digo que no
La vida dijo no
Yo digo que sí
Al final ¿qué importa, si muerto en vida sobreviví?

Es una cuestión de tiempo
Tan breve este momento
En que eres y en que soy
Tú mañana ya te fuiste
Y antes me dijiste
El futuro es hoy

Traigo este presente
Por las que has pasado
Ha sido pesado
Añorar a ausentes
Todo se soporta
Aunque esté nublado
Sigamos de frente

A paso paulatino
Aun no me cansé
Unas voy a pie (unas voy a pie)
Otras yo camino (otras yo camino)
La verdad no importa por que no sé cual es mi destino

Es una cuestión de tiempo
Tan breve este momento
Y éste es el que soy
Tú mañana ya te fuiste
Pero antes me dijiste
Que el futuro es hoy

Hoy, hoy, hoy, hoy
Hoy, hoy, hoy, hoy
Hoy, hoy, hoy, hoy
Hoy, hoy, hoy...

Get your 3D glasses for the cover art...I guess
Interesting!!
For some reason this song hits the spot for me. 9
I agree, spot on today!
Living in Canada, I don't get many chances to keep up my Spanish.
I was enjoying this song, but I'm so glad I checked out the lyrics with google translate!
Upped my rating from 7 to 8, to start. Such a fun groove!
 
BTW, thank you Bill and Rebecca! I've been listening to the 320 "Naim exclusive" (?) stream since around 11 am, and the music has seemed exceptionally delightful today! Not a single "sour note" in 6 hours! And lots of material either recent or new to me! Wow.
You have truly and greatly enriched my life over the past 13 years!

I said no
She said yes
I said yes

She said no
In the end it does not matter, it's something that God already decided

Death said yes
I say no
Life said no
I say yes
In the end, what does it matter, if I died alive did I survive?

It's a matter of time
So brief this moment
What are you and what am I
You were gone tomorrow
And before you told me
The future is today

I bring this present
What have you been through
It has been heavy
Missing absent
Everything is supported
Although it is cloudy
Let's go straight ahead

At a gradual pace
I have not got tired yet
Some I'm going on foot (some I'm going on foot)
Other I walk (others I walk)
The truth does not matter because I do not know what my destiny is

It's a matter of time
So brief this moment
And this is the one that I am
You were gone tomorrow
But before you told me
That the future is today

Today, today, today, today
Today, today, today, today
very pleasing

It's "Hoy" which means "Now".   The last words are "The future is NOW! NOW! NOW!"  It's a perfect, and perfectly terrifying, ending.

Good one to have in the rotation


LOVELY
This actually works ok for me...     kinda like helium

LOL!  Agree totally.  

This would be terrific live or played loud in a raucous party.

i like it, but not every day
With so much good music in Latin America, why this!!
Yo digo que no!

{#Naughty}
Waiting for this to be ... something ...

So the title fits! {#Roflol}

Nice pic!  And after bumping this track in my truck, I'm re-upping my rating to a 9 now.  This track still RULES!!  So much so that it RULZ!!  LLRP!!

 
BillG - thanks for this track, which I'll call my favorite "what the hell was that?" track of 2017.  And a 2nd thanks for the LOSSLESS format, there are some crazy sounds on this groove that my truck's hi-fi really pull out.  Brilliant!  ....not quite time to re-re-bump up to a 10, but damn it's close.  Long Live RP!!
Still a 1.

Houlaaaaaaa!
Won't put it a "1" because it's not Manu Chao... so I put "2".   :)
PSD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 
ahahaha, it has something of Manu Chao indeed :) I wouldn't give him more than 1 on most of his songs either. But this is still somehow different and I really like it, at least enough to give a 7. I like the way the chorus seems to stretch and how the voice of the singer accompanies the instrument. 
Overall, nice to hear once in a while !

Bad music. Bad cover. 1.
According to the band website and discogs.com, it appears that the album name has been changed to "Jei Beibi".  Wonderful song!
Thank you RP! I would have never known about this if I hadn't heard it here. I've upped my rating +2 to 9, since it's been haunting my dreams now for a couple of months!

You left already tomorrow
And before you told me
The future is today

I bring this present
What have you been through?
It has been heavy
Missing misses
Everything is supported
Even though it is cloudy
Let's face it

Step by step
I still did not get tired
Some I walk (some I walk)
Others I walk (others I walk)
The truth does not matter because I do not know what my destiny is

It's a matter of time
So brief this moment
And this is who I am
You left already tomorrow
But you told me before
That the future is today

Today today today today
Today today today today
Today today today today
Today Today Today..

(Helps me appreciate the song).


Good to hear this band in RP, I think they fit very well

I'm in the middle of grading papers, but I had to drop everything to listen to this song. A favorite, which I know only thanks to RP.

Please, everyone, give this a chance.  Café Tacvba knows exactly what they are doing here.  And lyrically making this about the future fits so well: it's insistent and slightly terrifying. In fact it's not completely unlike the 'Es muss sein' of Beethoven's 5th.

If I had a chance I would make a video for it, an adaptation of Gabriel Garcia Marquez's "A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings" with the last thirty seconds being simply the woman staring more and more into the distance, as the old man flies away.  I any case, this is definitely music for a film.

I hear truth and beauty.

Because it's 2x worse than the laws of nature allow.

You know how mold grows on food when you leave it for a few weeks in the fridge? This is the mold's theme song.

Rio Grande birding music.

I say that because a few years ago I went birding along the Rio Grande River on the Texas side. Once I got west of McAllen I was unable to find an English-language station on the car radio. So the drive to Roma was a steady stream of various genres of Mexican music and advertisements for an upcoming Mexican presidential election. 

It was a real surprise and a culture shock.

I actually kind of really Like this!
Yikes! The Bose 901's rendered this 4 minute effort flawlessly; however, they now are experiencing rapid onset PSD and have requested therapy.

So happy to listen to this band here at RP. I know this song might seem strange to your ears. But please give Café tacvba a try. One of the best band of rock in spanish.
