“No Quiero Enamorarme”

By now you should all have seen Kylie Minogue’s recent music video for her single “All The Lovers.” I became acquainted with it through McVie’s blog post. I really love the song and the video is extremely pleasing to the eyes. And if my memory serves me right, this is the first music video by a popular international artist that depicts two men kissing. Of course I’m not complaining, but that kiss and the generally sensual imagery of the whole video would likely ruffle the feathers of a lot of conservative people in the country. I wonder if this video gets airtime on the local music channels without censorship.

As nice as Kylie’s video is, still nothing beats the extremely hot soft-core porn that is Daniel Zueras’ music video for “No Quiero Enamorarme,” which means “I Don’t Want to Fall in Love.” Go watch it on YouTube if you haven’t seen it yet! The video depicts Daniel in a bisexual threesome with a woman and another man. I guarantee that you will find the video sexy and the song has a pretty decent dance-pop tune, though I don’t understand the lyrics. :-)

Daniel Zueras is a Spanish pop singer who finished second place in Operación Triunfo, a reality-TV singing contest in Spain. “No Quiero Enamorarme” is his first commercial single, released in 2007, and he did the really controversial music video in order to quickly shed the innocent-boy image he acquired from the singing contest. It’s definitely the sexiest music video I’ve ever seen and it surely won’t get airtime here in Philippine television on the off chance that Daniel’s music becomes popular here.

By the way, I think it was AJ who first blogged about this music video here in the Philippines back in 2007. I’m just re-blogging it again now for the benefit of those people who haven’t seen it yet. It deserves to be watched over and over again. Hehehe. I’d really love to know if there is an even sexier gay-themed music video out there (please do leave a comment if you know of one).

Anyway, if you want a poignantly beautiful (not sexy) gay music video, then the one for Sigur Rós’ “Viðrar vel til loftárása” is probably the best there is. (Jónsi, the band’s vocalist and guitarist, is openly gay.)

Christina Aguilera's "Beautiful" music video also showed two guys kissing. That was in early 2000 I think. I remember watching it on myx or some other local music channel.

You can look for a music video called "Can't Sleep" by Adrian Lux.

Hope you enjoy it because it's really cute.

@Jedd, I stand corrected! Good catch. I guess I don't recall Christina's video at all. My bad. :-P

@Anon, thanks for sharing. I love the sensual kissing in that video! :-)
