Easy-to-understand Spanish Movies / Music

Hi,

I'm trying to incorporate different types of entertainment in my learning (music, movies, poems, etc.). I was wondering if there were any movies or bands that are particularly useful for this (more specifically, where the actors or musicians speak slow enough that an intermediate Spanish student could understand it).

Can you guys think of any movies or songs like this?

Muchas gracias.

You can listen Mana group, and also La ley.


And above movies in Spanish, you can see Bajo la misma luna with Eugenio Derbes.

Hola, escucho a la banda Héroes de silencio, me gusta, y también Enrique usualmente habla lentamente ..

Todas las películas que he visto son muy difícil para entender porque hablan tan lentamente, pero miraba Plaza Sésamo los domingos, y es fácil para entender

It's not the easiest vocabulary, but when I watched Mar Adentro on DVD the subtitles were word-for-word identical with the script, which is quite rare and very helpful. (Normally subtitles are a distraction from the audio track which just serve to confuse).

Basically I'm in the same boat when it comes to the Italian language. I have some Italian movies that have the subtitles in Italian. This really helps. So get movies in Spanish that have the subtitles in Spanish. That way you can replay and have exactly what they are saying in Spanish.
