"No Hay Nadie Como Tú" by Calle 13 feat. Café Tacvba, English translation of lyrics

"There Is No One Like You"
Album: Los de Atrás Vienen Conmigo (The Ones Behind Are With Me), 2008
Style: Alternative, slightly pop and slightly urban
Countries: Puerto Rico (Calle 13), Mexico (Café Tacvba)


"No Hay Nadie Como Tú" won "Best Alternative Song" in the 2009 Latin Grammy Awards. It is a catchy love song and also a good resource for learning a lot of vocabulary since the setup of the song is to pair many similar and opposite things. Watch the music video at YouTube here.

En el mundo hay gente bruta y astuta,
Hay vírgenes y prostitutas.
Ricos, pobres, clase media,
Cosas bonitas y un par de tragedias.
