Fuego d’Amor: A When You Awake Mixtape
Filed under: Mixtapes,Original Mixtape Series | Posted by:

Eric Steuer of the hip hop/electronic duo Meanest Man Contest (who also counts being the Creative Director of Creative Commons and a writer for Wired Magazine among his list of daily tasks) and I have put together a brand new mixtape for you. As a follow-up to Eric’s Other Countries mixtape, which came out in February and featured foreign language covers of country classics like “Stand By Your Man,” “A Boy Named Sue” and “Harper Valley PTA,” we are very pleased to present Fuego d’Amor. The mix features our favorite American and British musicians singing their tunes in foreign languages. The Rolling Stones singing in Italian? The Beach Boys in German? Harry Nilsson in Spanish? Why yes, and we have it all for you after the jump. Any good ones we missed? Let us know in the comments. Photo by Gita Kurnia, BY-NC.
