Yesterday would’ve been Selena’s 47th birthday. If you’re from Texas or simply love good music you’ll know which Selena I’m talking about, and you’re probably still as broken up about her murder as I am.
I was a kid when I fell in love with her music. It was the 90’s and I was in daycare listening to a regular rotation of Shania Twain and Selena with some other pop hits sprinkled in. I knew “Como la flor” like the back of my hand and could hit the washing machine with the best of them. I might not have understood much of what I was singing, but “Amor Prohibido” was a song I belted out on a regular basis.
This past Saturday I went to the annual tribute concert at the House of Blues and sang along with her hits with the rest of the packed house. I shared a few snippets of the concert on Instagram, and I wanted to share some of my favorite Selena songs with y’all today. Take a listen below and let me know if your favorites are on the list or if there are more I should add!
