After the success of the first post Singing Latino: 12 Popular English Songs in Spanish, a sequel became mandatory.
Here I feature 15 additional English songs with their Spanish versions, plus a Spanglish “bonus track”. To listen to a demo of each version, click on each MP3 link and conclude if it’s a good Spanish version or not.

From this sequel, my personal favorites are Pandora’s Rezo una oración por ti, that sounds just as good in Spanish as the original, and the lively Si me quedo o si me voy version of Should I Stay or Should I Go from Los Fabulosos Cadillacs. My least favorite is Mickey because you can barely understand what she is singing.
What are your favorite songs from this list? Do any of these or even other songs bring back childhood memories? Are any of these Spanish versions just plain bad?
