18 July 2013 - Julieta Venegas - Otra Cosa / Lovecats

For those who don't know (and therefore never read our other blog post about her), Julieta Venegas is a brilliant Latin alternative singer/songwriter - born in the USA, living in Mexico now - who just happened to become a huge hitmaker.  She refuses - REFUSES - to write songs in English, a language she speaks natively, because of the beauty of the Spanish language (which, admittedly, she also speaks natively).  I frankly don't blame her.

That doesn't mean she refuses to cover songs written in English.  At about the 1:50 mark of this video, her original song "Otra Cosa" suddenly transforms..... into "Lovecats" by The Cure.  Brilliant transition, and an engaging performance.
