I'm not a big fan of Shakira, but this song has something extremely catchy that reminds me of the distant past. Take for example that jerky bassline in the intro of the song. Isn't that somewhat reminiscent of Ryan Paris' "Dolce Vita"? And check out that subtle synth loop in the chorus and the notes during the bridge of the song. It is Limahl's "Never Ending Story" all over again. It is probably all this '80s nostalgia that makes me appreciate this song more than anything else.
