Jesse & Joy Love Their Superhéroes

This is for spending way too much time singing in alleys

Jesse & Joy is a duo of twenty-something siblings, singers and songwriters that exploded onto Latin America’s radar in 2006 with their first single, Espacio Sideral (Outer Space). They won the Latin Grammy for Best New Artist in 2007.

Espacio Sideral is a spot-on combination of sweet love song and superhero fantasy, and it is still one of my favorites. It’s a favorite on YouTube too as many have made videos and slideshows for their geeky significant others using Espacio Sideral. I wanted to share it with you if you’ve never heard of it.

I translated their song. Unfortunately the rhyme gets lost in translation but I found their music video for you to enjoy. In it you’ll see the duo being repeatedly attacked by comic book type baddies. Have a happy weekend!


Wish I could give you the whole world

The moon, the sky, the sun and sea

And give you the stars in a crystal box.

Take you to outer space

And fly like Superman does.


Wish I was a super hero

And could protect you from evil

Give you the Milky Way in a bowl of cereal

Take you to outer space

And fly like Superman


You’ve weakened me so

All my strength leaves if you’re not here

And my powers are for naught

I feel so normal, so fragile, so real

You take me to outer space

Just like Superman does


Want to write you an epic poem

And use the sky for paper

Use the clouds as cream

And bake you a super cake

Take you to outer space

Just like Superman

Fleeing from bad guys (and gals)
