This Boy's Fire . . . Jennifer Lopez and Carlos Santana

Carlos Santana has a way of bringing his unique sound and style to his collaborations with other artists.  This collaboration with Jennifer Lopez, This Boy's Fire, is one of my favorites.  Mexican rapper Baby Bash is also featured on the song.

"This Boy's Fire" is the second single from Santana's compilation album, Ultimate Santana.  The single, co-written by Carlos Santana and Jennifer Lopez, was released on March 28, 2008.

The following video is one that I created 
. . . a fan tribute to two of my favorite artists.

What does this song have to do with Valentine's Day?

I had just discovered this song and the music website, Blip.  At the same time, I had met an awesome guy on Twitter who was nothing to me but an avatar of skull and crossbones.  But there was something about his personality that came through on those limited characters.  We became awesome friends, moving away from limited characters to emails to get to know each other better.  The email turned to chat . . . chat turned to phone calls . . . phone calls turned to plane trips and visits . . . all that turned into forever.

It is one of those songs that reminds me of a specific place and time in my life.  And it was one of the most wonderful times of my life . . . I think of our beginnings every time I hear this song.
