Revistas Del Corazon
Ska-P Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Por qué, por qué?
Pregunto por qué?
Mi cabeza me estalla
Pregunto por qué?

Han pagado cara la exclusiva
Más el dieciséis por ciento de IVA
Boba, boba, boba, que eres boba,
Boba, boba, boba, que eres tonta

Diarrea mental produce esa revista
En la sala de espera del dentista

Revistas del corazón
Revistas
Que listas
Revistas

Marqués, marqués,
Permiso marqués,
Si no tiene dinero, el divorcio el marqués

La boda de la niña también es rentable
salga de la crisis, le echamos un cable!

Guerras, guerras, sangre, hambre,
esta pobre gente no es importante?

Te preocupan las tonterías de la "jet"
Que alimentan y engordan la estupidez

Revistas del corazón
Revistas
Que listas
Revistas
Revistas del corazón

Poderosos estilistas, degeneración revistas
Periodistas, elitistas, es su profesión que listas
Guerras, sangre, hambre y muertes por inanición revistas
Pobres almas condenadas, terroristas

Revistas
Que listas




Revistas
Terroristas

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Ska-P's song "Revistas del Corazón" (Heart Magazines) critique the sensationalist and shallow nature of celebrity gossip magazines that invade our everyday lives. The song starts with the singer questioning why we are so obsessed with such trivial matters highlighted by these magazines, to the point where we can't even think straight. The song then goes on to highlight the exploitation and commercialization of people's personal lives by these magazines. The lyrics hit hard on the fact that the rich can use their money to control what news comes out about them by paying for exclusive content, and how the media profits further by adding taxes on that income. The repetition of the words "boba" and "tonta" (silly and stupid), directed towards those who consume these magazines, is a stark reminder of the lack of substance and merit in the content presented in these magazines.


The lyrics also bring up the topic of divorces and weddings, which are often highlighted by these magazines for their commercial value. The usage of the title "marqués" (marquis) hints at upper-class individuals who can afford to pay for this kind of publicity. The mention of "pobre gente" (poor people) is a nod to the fact that real people facing real issues get overshadowed and ignored by these magazines. The line "te preocupan las tonterías de la jet" (you worry about the jet's nonsense) highlights how these magazines feed us with trivial and fictitious news, creating an illusion of glamour and luxury that most people cannot afford to have. The last lines of the song abruptly switch to terrorism, pointing out how real issues like war, hunger, and terrorism are often pushed aside, while such magazines continue to perpetuate superficial and vapid content.


Overall, the song is an explicit critique of how gossip magazines manipulate information for profit, how they exploit the privacy of people and ultimately feed people's obsession with trivial things. Despite its piercing criticism, the song is catchy and upbeat, challenging its listeners to not only think about the lyrics but also dance to it.
