I'm sure we all remember this little number:
Aside from that shocking discovery, I also had some initial thoughts about the theme song in relation to my telenovela. The structure of the song is very similar to the structure of La Tempestad. At first, Alejandro Fernandez sings a solo. Then, Christina Aguilera sings a solo. Finally, the two join together and sing a duet. This is a lot like the beginning of La Tempestad, when Marina and Damian Fabre are in denial about their love for each other. They do not get together until many episodes later. The song reflects the building of anticipation and emotion both in the characters and in the audience as they wait for the two protagonists to finally get together. It is frustrating to be patient for so long, but the song reminds us that it will happen eventually.
It is also worth noting that the male and the female singers have equal focus in the song. They both have powerful voices, and both are huge celebrities. This also reflects the way the telenovela treats its male and female protagonists. Both Marina and Capitan Fabre are strong, powerful characters. They both have respect for one another and are respected by many in the community they live in. One of the things I like most about this telenovela is that it makes a point to show that women and men are equals both in the workplace and in a relationship. "Hoy Tengo Ganas de Ti" accurately reflects this portrayal.
