foreign music week: jonatan cerrada, je t’adore!

today, i bring you jonatan cerrada a belgian spaniard contestant and winner of france’s answer to pop idolà la recherche de la nouvelle star (on the search for the new star). to be honest, i don’t really know how i came across jonatan cerrada… it could be from my hours of downloading music, hours of trolling myspace for new music or hours of youtubing for… uh, music? who knows. anyway, i dug him and actually ended up buying 20 bucks worth of his share as a believer on sellaband. if you don’t know what sellaband is, you should check it out. it’s a good way to get to know some prit-ty jammin’ unsigned artists from around the world (i should actually do the same… i haven’t been in a year or two).

in any event, here’s jonatan cerrada. the first is a video of mon paradis from the french version of the movie robots. unfortunately, the embed code was “disabled by request.” here is the official video.


this one is france’s entry for eurovision song contest 2004 called à chaque pas. ok they keep doing the disable thing. here’s the official video for this one.

and finally, a man who can sing suerte by shakira (avec modified lyrics, of course)!

  1. The only thing I am unhappy about the Eurovision Song Contest is that the use of English, in the Contest increases year by year.

    As a native English speaker I think this is unfair!

    It’s certainly time to break the habit of “language imperialism”, in the Eurovision Song Contest, and use a song, sung in Esperanto instead!

    This is a serious suggestion, as you can see from the Esperanto music which is already available at or at

    There’s even cheesy Esperanto music available! See
