You can find all sorts of things on the roadside, including CDs. Wakanomori once found a CD from a library several towns away lying in the street--he biked it back to where it belonged. A few days ago he found two CDs, one blue and one green, with nothing written on them.

One turned out to have 51 tracks on it--not whole songs, but fragments of songs, transitioning smooth as silk one to the next. It seems to be a DJ CD, for playing at a club or party or something. Some of the fragments I really like, and so I'm gradually buying the whole songs. Serendipitous way to broaden my musical horizons! I catch a few snatches of lyrics, do a search on them, find out the track name and the artist, and then I'm all set.

... This doesn't work so well for ones in Spanish, though. So I was hoping to ask you all! (rachelmanija--maybe your friends would have an idea?)

Mystery Spanish-Language Songs
ETA: A Spanish-speaking friend on Tumblr, aloneinthemath, identified them all for me!
So the names and singers are added in below

Anyone have any clue as to what mysterious Track 24 might be?

Mystery Track 24 turned out to be "Si no te quiere" (by Ozuna ft D. Ozi).

Mystery Track 25 turned out to be "Dulce carita" (by Dalmata ft Zion y Lennox)

Mystery Track 26 turned out to be "Lejos de aquí" by Farruko (some of these videos are -_- ... try just listening without watching, you know?)

Tumblr itself identified Track 27 when I tried to upload it--they warned me against uploading stuff that I hadn't created and linked me to this video of "Compromiso" by Tito "El Bambino."

Mystery Track Track 28 is "Suele suceder," by Piso 21 ft Nicky James

And Mystery Track 29, which made me shiver, turns out to be "Esta Noche," by J Quiles

There are more, but this is enough for the time being.

Would you like to know some of the English-language songs I've bought, thanks to the roadside DJ? (Links below go to Youtube videos, except for the special remix of the Anjali World song)

"Shoulda Been There," by Sevyn Streeter

"Locked Away," by R. City (which makes my heart crack, thinking of the women I work with on Fridays)

If I got locked away and we lost it all today, tell me honestly: would you still love me the same?

On the Roadside DJ CD, this song is answered by a remix of Anjali World, "Nobody," in which she sings,

Nobody, nobody can come between me and you ... I want you to be mine forever

Nice call and response, roadside DJ!

There are a bunch of reggae/soca songs, too. I liked Mr. Vegas, "Love the Girls Them" and *really* loved Shurwayne Winchester, "Girl Born to Wine"--that one makes me so happy.

Roadside treasure, for sure, that CD.

I can't help with i.d.ing your songs, but cheers for roadside treasures! (and people taking things back to libraries. :) )

Right? How often does music just fall into your lap?

(.... for some people I expect the answer is actually "quite frequently," but for me it's a real treat.)

I have a song that may or may not be in Hebrew and it's too obscure for Shazam.

If you're in the mood for Nepalis with guitars, I met this guy on Sunday.

I *am* in the mood--I'll check out the link.

BTW on my bike ride home just now I was yearning to hear one of those Gretch songs. Are they downloadable anywhere?

Not yet, as far as I know.
