Rahul Bhargava and I are working on improving and rolling out Spanish and
Portuguese language versions of our tool http://Databasic.io and we are
trying to include culturally appropriate sample data for the different

We'd specifically love to find:
1) Corpuses of music lyrics by musician for popular spanish-speaking and
portuguese-speaking artists. For example, the english language version has
all of Lady Gaga's lyrics that you can analyze.

2) Interesting/Fun/Popular data sets in spanish and portuguese* in the form
of spreadsheets*. Like, maybe the performance of football teams over time.
Or data sets of UFO sightings.

Anyone have leads on open data sets in spanish and/or portuguese? Thanks in
advance for any help!
