Fijacion Oral vol 1 (or musings on Shakira's Lebanese-Colombian ass)

Why is it called Latin music when all it is, really, is Spanish music? Or South American music since there's a category for Brazilian music in the Latin Grammies. Why isn't French music considered Latin music? Why isn't Italian? Or Romanian? Why isn't Gregorian chant considered Latin music when in fact it's sung in Latin? They really ought to change the name of the genre. Spanish-Portuguese music? Or Music-Performed-By-Latin-Americans-and-Iberians?

Oral Fixation (the Vol. 2) is even better. (hint, hint, wink, wink) And did you see the videos?
