  • K.a. from TennesseeNick, when do you hear the riff? And from which recording of "dont..misunderstood"?
  • Nick from GeorgiaIncredible tune. I've seen him perform it many times. He seems like a man possessed during the solos. Love how he began dropping the riff from "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood" into his solo. It's become a staple. An absolute musical tour de force and my favorite Santana song by a long shot. Thanks for the lyric, Jimmy. I often find the chanted lyrics in Santana songs difficult to decipher.
  • Ray from WashingtonJimmy is correct about the lyrics. They've been spread incorrectly around the internet and not many people seem to know what they actually are.
  • Jimmy from California The last line of the song actually says " Vamonos Negra... A Bailar Mi Guaguanco....."
  • Mtthewrcdrmmr from Chch, New ZealandIs this the best song ever written? Certainly the best from Latin Amerigo.
  • Jim from Oxnard, CaThe live version of this song was released when Columbia Records re-released Santana's first three albums.
