Juanes on love

In Juanes, Karen Martinez on January 4, 2008 at 4:39 pm

Juanes is the king of the Latino love song, some would say. Check out what he had to say about his craft.

 Interviewer:  “Why are love songs and songs about falling out of love so popular?”

Juanes: “They’re very much alike. It’s like the moon is dark on one side and light on the other – it’s the same thing. Love and sadness are the same thing. The only way to understand one is to know what the other means. When we’re in love we’re human – it’s part of life. When you love you have to assume that you have to suffer, that love hurts. When your daughter falls you know it will hurt you, because it’s such a powerful love. It’s a love that’s so great that it hurts.”


Guess we can expect his reunion with his wife Karen Martinez after their separation  to be permanent. And if not, maybe it’ll serve as some inspiration for a jam.
