Luis Miguel - Best Songs

A Selection of Latin Pop and Bolero Tracks

By

Luis Miguel is by far one of the most popular singers from Mexico. Although his music has been mostly influenced by Pop, his unique style within the Latin music world is consequence of the innovative way in which he reintroduced Bolero music to younger generations. That said, the following playlist features some of the Pop tracks and boleros that transformed Luis Miguel into one of the most famous artists in Latin music.

"No Me Platiques Mas" is the opening track from Romance, one of the most popular Latin music albums ever produced by a Mexican artist. Thanks to this song, and all the additional tracks featured on this production, younger generation fell in love with the sounds of Bolero. Besides this, Romance allowed Luis Miguel to establish his own image as one of the most romantic singers in Latin music.

"Me Gusta Tal Como Eres," featuring Sheena Easton

Musically speaking, "Me Gusta Tal Como Eres" is not probably one of the best songs from Luis Miguel. It actually sounds quite cheesy today. However, I decided to include it here because this track sort of marked the beginning of an international career for the Mexican singer. Luis Miguel recorded this songs with the legendary Sheen Easton when he was only a teenager.
