  • Anna from NightvaleTruth is every time I request a song on the radio its only this one.
  • Patrick Longworth from Okanagan Falls, British Columbia, CanadaI am saddened that only one Selena song is here whereas my other favourite Survivor has about 7 or 8. I realize maybe it is hard work to run this site and check every possible musician.

    I love this song and the video, in fact I don't think there is a single song by her that I haven't at least liked a bit, and there is a large number of her songs that I love.
  • Rachel Warren from Des Moines WashLove this song. Forever fan of Selena. Will never forget the day I heard she was killed. The movie was well made. The ending was too sad, I cried Everytime I see that ending.
  • Megan from Stevenson, AlOmg! The part in the movie when she's shot and they rush her to the er and this song is playing and her family crying....Gets me everytime!!! Great movie!!! We watched it in my high school Spanish 1 class.
  • Jim from St. Paul, Mnselena, such a beautiful singer, so much forgotten. her english album was so wonderful, grammy or not, it just wasn't understood. two of the prettiest songs I ever heard were "I'm Getting Used to You" and "Baila conmigo (God's Child)." What a beautifu voice and a precious child of God.
  • Carmen from Nwk, NyShes the best spanish singer ever!! you cant deny that !
