Music Video: Michel Teló, ‘Ai Se Eu Te Pego’

I’m back! Where from? Well I recently came back from two weeks in Europe. I was mainly in Germany, so my plan while in the country was to keep my ears out for songs in German. Nothing caught my attention until I heard this song, but one verse into it I realized it was in Portuguese. So much for the original plan.

Anyway, this song has been pretty big in Europe – in fact it is currently in the number 8 spot on the Europe Official Top 100. “Ai Se Eu Te Pego” is nothing groundbreaking and I have no idea what the lyrics mean, but all I know is that it has two important elements: it’s catchy and it has an accordion. Originally a song by Brazilian band Cangaia de Jegue, it was popularized by Teló and he is now planning to release an English version in the U.S. called “If I Catch You” (I guess that’s what the song’s about). If you enjoy this, take a listen to Gusttavo Lima’s “Balada.” Like Teló, Lima is a sertanejo (country) singer hailing from Brazil and is beginning to take Europe by storm with his own single.

About Camille G.

Camille's passion for music began at the advent of the very illegal Napster, which she maaay or may not have used at the time. This interest made a natural progression into learning and teaching herself how to play various instruments for fun. Due to a lack of actual talent and the desire for job predictability, she graduated from Seton Hall University in nursing. When she has time off from her job as a registered nurse in NJ, she enjoys digging through the internet for new things to listen to. Sharing her discoveries and favorite songs with friends through mix CDs, playlists, blogs, and parties is the part of the music experience she enjoys the most, so this is a great opportunity for her to do just that.
