Sweater weather, pumpkin spice, hot chocolate, and the smell of abuela’s cooking makes the sound of bachata add to the fall season. There is truly no better season than fall to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, so why not spice it up with some Latin hits?

Spotify, Apple Music and Pandora have many playlists you’re able to listen to while on the go. They have many great songs and genres starting from: reggaeton, bachata, regional Mexican, and latin pop from many different artists that you may listen to and like. 

After concluding a Google Form survey on Latin songs where 30 students from Godinez Fundamental High School (GFHS) filled out the form, we discovered a student favorite was “Como La Flor” by Selena Quintanilla. 

Senior, Lizbeth Figueroa likes Quintanilla’s sound. 

Figueroa said, ¨I enjoy the beat of the song and the vibrations of the music.” 

When considering songs to make Grizzly Gazette’s top 10, “Oye Mi Amor” by Maná, “Amor Prohibido” by Selena Quintanilla, ¨Obsesion¨ by Aventura, ¨La canción¨ by J Balvin and Bad Bunny, “Taki Taki” by Dj Snake, “Maś alla del Sol” by Joan Sebastian, ¨No me conoce¨ by Bad Bunny, ¨A Dios le pido¨ by Juanes, and “Te quiero” by Flex were GFHS’ choices.

Senior, Araceli Torres said her most favorite song is  “No Me Conoce” by Bad Bunny. 

“I really enjoy the rhythm and the beats of this song because it has a lot of movement and I’m  able to dance to it,” said Torres. 

For sophomore, Kenia Morales, her ¨my top song  is to be “Labios Compartidos.” 

“I like the lyrics in it and it’s such a really great song to listen to it while cleaning or on a road trip,” said Morales.  

These songs are really great to listen to while on the go or even helping out your grandma make a delicious food plate.
