About Livin' La Vida Loca

"Livin' la Vida Loca" is a song performed by Ricky Martin. It was released on March 23, 1999, from Martin's self-titled debut English-language album (he had previously released several albums in Spanish). The song was composed by Desmond Child and Draco Rosa. La vida loca is Spanish for "the crazy life." "Livin' la Vida Loca" is generally seen as the song that began the Latin pop explosion that followed and made the transition of other Spanish-speaking artists (first Enrique Iglesias and Marc Anthony and later Shakira, Paulina Rubio and Thalía) into the English-speaking market easier. Before this time, most non-Latino Americans had never heard of Martin until what CNN reported was a show-stopping performance of "La Copa de la Vida" at the 41st Grammy Awards show, which became a catalyst in bringing Latin pop to the forefront of the U. S. music scene. "Livin' la Vida Loca" sold over 8 million copies, making it one of the best selling singles of all time. The song received various Grammy Awards nominations and Ricky Martin obtained enormous success inside the United States and worldwide. In 2007, the song was ranked at number 28 on the list of 100 Greatest Songs of the 90's by VH1. It is Martin's signature song. Martin performed the song on second series of The Voice Australia with fellow judges Delta Goodrem, Joel Madden and Seal.

She's into superstitions
Black cats and voodoo dolls
I feel a premonition
That girl's gonna make me fall

She's into new sensations
New kicks in the candlelight
She's got a new addiction
For every day and night

She'll make you take your clothes off and go dancing in the rain
She'll make you live her crazy life
But she'll take away your pain
Like a bullet to your brain (come on!)

Upside inside out
She's livin' la vida loca
She'll push and pull you down
Livin' la vida loca
Her lips are devil red
And her skin's the color of mocha
She will wear you out
Livin' la vida loca
She's livin la vida loca (come on!)
She's livin la vida loca

Woke up in New York City
In a funky cheap hotel
She took my heart and she took my money
She must've slipped me a sleepin' pill

She never drinks the water
Makes you order french champagne
Once you've had a taste of her
You'll never be the same
Yeah, she'll make you go insane (alright!)

Upside, inside out
She's livin' la vida loca
She'll push and pull you down
Livin' la vida loca

Her lips are devil red
And her skin's the color of mocha
She will wear you out
Livin' la vida loca
Livin' la vida loca
She's livin la vida loca

She'll make you take your clothes off and go dancing in the rain
She'll make you live her crazy life
But she'll take away your pain
Like a bullet to your brain (come on!)

Upside, inside out
She's livin' la vida loca
She'll push and pull you down
Livin' la vida loca

Her lips are devil red
And her skin's the color of mocha
She will wear you out
Livin' la vida loca

Upside, inside out
She's livin' la vida loca
She'll push and pull you down
Livin' la vida loca

Her lips are devil red
And her skin's the color of mocha
She will wear you out
Livin' la vida loca

Livin' la vida loca
She's livin' la vida loca

Come on!
Gotta la vida loca
Gotta, gotta, gotta
La vida loca
Gotta, gotta, gotta la vi-
