474 Manu Chao

I’m listening to the last 2 songs on number 474 while I type this. Manu Chao, ‘Próxima Estación: Esperanza,’ (Virgin, 2001), Rolling Stone calls him a Marley-sized figure. Wikipedia tells me that he is a French-born musical artist of Spanish origin. He sings in many languages and covers just as many topics, or so I’ve read. I found this to be a fun, catchy album in that I Have No Idea What He’s Singing About white girl way. In keeping with that fashion, I downloaded it immediately.
