With summer well and truly upon us, The Local has put together a list of great Spanish cover versions of English songs to keep you grooving through the hottest days of the year.

Ever wondered what country legend Johnny Cash sounds like in Spanish? We hadn't until today but it's truly amazing

How about Bob Marley jamming to 'Is this love?' in the language of Cervantes? Does he shout out 'Ya man!' or '¡Si señor!'?

As the third most spoken lingo in the world, there's something about 'español' which often appeals to top English-singing musicians.

At the same time, English language music is so big in Spain and Latin America that some local singers choose to record their own Spanish-language versions of classic songs. 

So turn up the volume on your laptops and brace yourselves for the ultimate mash-up of Spanish covers of English songs!

¡Música, maestro!
