Canción Animal (Spanish for Animal Song) is the fifth album released by the Argentine rock band Soda Stereo, released in August, 1990 (see 1990 in music). Many of the songs on the album are among the band's most popular, such as one of their biggest hits "De Música Ligera", the last song played in Soda Stereo's last concert in 1997, "Hombre al agua", "Un Millón de Años Luz", "Te para tres" and others. It is considered one of the best and most influential albums in the history of Latin American Rock, for many people it is simply the best album ever to come out of South America, because of its sheer quality and influence, which left a mark on the history of Latin American music.[2]
