José´s Choice: Eric Clapton´s "Tears In Heaven"

Here is Jose´s explanation of the reason why he wants to share "Tears in Heaven", by Eric Clapton:

I have known this song for years, one day my aunt showed me her vinyl's collection and I got a surprise with one of them: Eric Clapton, "The King of Blues", especially this song "Tears in Heaven", I asked my aunt about the meaning of the song and she told me that Clapton had written this song  about the death of his four-year-old son;  I think this is a shocking story. This song was probably the song that woke up my passion for music and the reason why  I decided to start playing the guitar, because I hope to be able to write songs as well as Eric Clapton does

Thanks, José!

Andrés´Choice: Eminem´s "Without Me"

Here´s why Andrés has chosen "Without Me" by Eminem

I have chosen this song because when I listen to American Rap, I always listen to Wiz Khalifa, Snoop Dog,50 cent but Eminen is one of the best rappers in the world and I should listen to him more because he is very talented. This song shows us Eminem´s fluency to sing. Furthermore,I love the beat of this song and when I am with my friends, we usually rap to it.

Thank you, Andrés!

Erlinda´s Choice: The Neighbourhood´s "R.I.P.2 My Youth"

Here´s Erlinda´s choice, The Neighbourhood¨s song called "R.I.P.2My Youth" : 

I really like this song because it touches a theme that everybody has experienced or that will live someday:  the loss of childhood, something that everybody wants when they are young but,  when they are adults,  they want to be kids again. The song talks about the difficulty of growing up and losing one's youth, an experience that occurs for some sooner than others. The main theme of the song is the acceptance of the death of innocence and the acceptance of adulthood.

This is the video with the lyrics subtitled into Spanish:

Thanks, Erlinda!
