We’re kicking off the first Oldies Sunday for the month of July with some Spanish vibes! It’s Summer, and we’re feeling the vibe to dance! For today’s Oldies Sunday selection, we head off to Puerto Rico to check out Jerry Rivera’s “Amores Como El Nuestro (Love Like Ours)“.
Written by Omar Alfanno, “Amores Como El Nuestro” was released through Sony in 1992, this was a Salsa love song that was backed by some amazing Instrumentation including some addictive horns. With lyrics about preserving a unique love no matter what’s going on, Jerry Rivera delivered beautifully on this track. You can’t help but dance to this one, and it’s a great way to kick off any week, any day, any season. “Amores Como El Nuestro” was a successful single for Jerry Rivera, becoming an award winning track, and making his 3rd album, “Cuenta Conmigo” his most successful release. “Amores Como El Nuestro” remains one of his most recognized singles as well.
The years that followed the release and success of “Amores Como El Nuestro”, it gained new life through being sampled on various tracks. From Peter Gunz and Lord Tariq’s “Uptown Baby“, to Wyclef Jean and Claudette Ortiz’s “Dance Like This” (which was also sampled for Wyclef’s “Hips Don’t Lie” with Shakira), to French Montana’s “FWMGAB“, to Emilio Rojas’ “Flaco“, “Amores Como El Nuestro” is a timeless track, and remains an important contribution to Salsa Music.
Thank You Jerry Rivera For This Classic!
