A Little Scandalous

While driving through Sicily on our vacation we found a few channels that played new music. It kind of surprised me when we first moved to Europe and I heard all the unedited songs on the radio. Sicily was no exception to this rule. Sean and I are driving along to Mt. Etna and we hear the new Enrique Iglesias song, "Tonight..I'm Loving You" except it wasn't the Loving you version, but the unedited vesion.

Sean turns to me and says, "Is he really saying tonight I'm ****ing you?"

Ha! It was a bit unexpected, I'm not sure I've ever heard that particular word played on mainstream radio.

I have to admit, the song is really catchy and I'm a sucker for a good beat or anything that makes me want to dance, so I downloaded the edited version when we got back home. Then I went on a search for the video. Even the video is a bit....how should I say it? Scandalous.

Perhaps I think so because I'm just a sheltered girl from the Midwest, but Enrique's videos just seem to get a big more risque with each one.



Have you seen it? Do you like the song?

Hahahaa, yeah, that song IS pretty catchy and rather dirty....Random side note, the dark haired girl he makes out with? That's my friend Kristen :-)

I heard the unedited version for the first time last night at a friend's house. I almost peed my pants, I was so shocked, because I was so used to the radio version!

Boooo, I can not watch this. It's not letting me. So sad!

I love the song, although when I went to download it, I chose the edited version. I like the unedited one too, so maybe I'll get that eventually too.

Hah...Ruben & I were out to lunch in town one Saturday and heard Cee-Lo's "Forget You" song, only the one where he's not saying "Forget". Rather startling lunch music!

We heard something filthy in Ikea one day too. It's one thing to assume that the Italians are just listening to the music, but surely SOME of them get the words? I do think I prefer a little good old fashioned American censorship when it comes to the radio!

ha ha the first time I heard the "real" version I was singing at the top of my lungs in a bar in Las Vegas.. I was shocked too! Its so naughty!

That's totally scandalous! And I totally wouldn't expect that from Enrique Iglesias.

I tried to play it but it says its blocked due to copyright or something. Anyway crazy they can just play that stuff with no edits!! Hope your enjoying your vaca!

Haha! I've been listening to the unedited version on one Siruis/XM dance station. The first time I heard it, I couldn't believe that was coming from Enrique and I really hate that term, makes it sound so nasty! I was wondering how they would change it for mainstream radio and guessed it would be "loving". I guessed right! Never saw the video....here goes.

I absolutely love this song!! However, when I heard the original version my jaw did drop.

I've seen the video and I hear the "Tonight I'm loving you" version on the radio all the time. I didn't even know it was another word until someone had told me!
