What is your favourite song in your mother language?
Is it in You Tube? And the lyrics?

I found my favourite here:

One of my favourites is:
"Baúl de los recuerdos", from Karina

Translation by Google: Trunk of memories

Over de muur Oct 9, 2008

IMHO, the best Dutch language song ever is 'Over de muur' by the band 'Klein orkest'. It's about the Berlin wall, so the lyrics don't apply anymore, but it remains simply beautiful.
The title means both 'over the wall' as 'about the wall'. The refrain goes something like this:
Only the birds fly from East to West Berlin
Don't get shot
Don't get whistled back
Over the wall, over the iron curtain
Because sometimes they like to be in the West, sometimes in the East.

...but that sounds SOOOO much better in Dutch...

Two songs Oct 13, 2008

I have two favourite songs in Dutch;

Papa from Stef Bos, it's about a guy who describes the differences between him and his dad, and that in the end, he looks more and more like him.

And more recently;
Laura from Jan Smit, he sings about a girl that died from cancer and how much he liked her.

P.S. I do like the song "Over de Muur" a lot aswell.
