Imagine me typing this to the rhythm of Santana’s track of this name.
You can’t confine yourself to just a few letters.
Your feet are tapping. Your shoulders are shimmying.
And you are mirroring the beat on the keyboard – dum de de dum dum, dum de de dum dum….
I’m feeling so laid back that I’m simply going to give you one giant quote from Wiki about this song:
‘”Smooth” is a collaboration between Latin rock band Santana and Rob Thomas of the rock group Matchbox Twenty. The song was written by Thomas and Itaal Shur, sung by Thomas, produced by Matt Serletic and won three Grammy Awards, including Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals. Not only was it the final number-one Hot 100 hit of the 1990s, it was also the number-two Hot 100 hit of the 20th century. Smooth is the only song to appear on two decade end charts. As of 2013 Smooth is ranked 2nd best song of all time from Billboard.’
Well, I’m not sure about this last claim – I could not find direct verification on Billboard for you. But it is undoubtedly a fantastic track and I look forward to seeing your videos of latino street dancing very soon 🙂
