Can't Stay Away from You

Can't Stay Away from You" is the title of a 1988 single by singer Gloria Estefan, credited to Estefan and her former band, the Miami Sound Machine. The song was the third single released from their multi-platinum album, Let It Loose. It became Estefan's (and her band's) fifth Top 10 hit in the United States, peaking at #6 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart; it was their second #1 hit on the adult contemporary chart, following 1986's "Words Get in the Way". The song originally peaked at #88 on the UK Singles Chart in May 1988, however the song was re-released after the success of its follow-up, "Anything for You", peaking at #7 in March 1989.
The song is a pensive ballad sung from the perspective of a woman who is in love with someone who doesn't feel the same, but she is unwilling to walk away from their relationship because she does not want it to end.
The European single contains as a bonus cut a remixed version of "Surrender", an album cut from "Let It Loose", which Estefan performed on "Solid Gold".
Popular Latin singer Jaci Velasquez recorded a Spanish version of the song called "Mi Vida No Es Nada Sin Ti" for her album Milagro.
The song appeared in 1988 episodes of the soap operas Another World and The Young and the Restless.

We are here

"Oye Mi Canto (Hear My Voice)" was the fourth single, by Gloria Estefan from her first album as a solo artist "Cuts Both Ways" in the U.S. in April 1990. It was the second single in the U.K., released on September 4, 1989, and throughout Europe in September and October 1989. :cool2:

The song exemplified some of Gloria's musical roots, much like in the style of her earlier music with Miami Sound Machine, and is much in the style of "Conga" and "Rhythm Is Gonna Get You".
Though the song was only a minor chart hit in the US, in Europe it increased Gloria's popularity. Furthermore, she obtained her first MTV Video Music Award for this song for the "International Viewer's Choice Awards" at the Ceremony in 1990.
The remixes of the song and short editions were created by: Pablo Flores, who would go on to remix many other Gloria recordings, as well as Keith Cohen and David Morales.

Gloria Estafan - Anything For You

"Anything for You" is a popular song and ballad written by Gloria Estefan and sung by Estefan and Miami Sound Machine.

The song appeared on their 1987 album, Let It Loose. "Anything for You" became a number-one song in the United States summer of 1988; it was the band's (and Gloria's) first number-one and also saw a European first-release during the same period but failed to have the same impact there as the re-release in December 1988. It did top the Billboard magazine Hot 100 chart on May 14, 1988, and remained there for two weeks. Due to the success of the re-release of this signature song and the previous re-release in October 1988 from the single, "Can't Stay Away from You," outside North America the album Let It Loose saw a re-release named after the single: "Anything For You"

The song also spent three weeks at #1 on the Adult Contemporary chart that same year. It also peaked at #3 on the Hot Latin Tracks on June 25, 1988. The A-side of the single contained a longer fade than the version on the album.

The B-side of the single was a Spanglish version of the song, with Estefan alternating the verses and chorus between English and Spanish.
