Iconic artists like Daniel Santos, Agustín Lara and Javier Solís are considered to be pioneers of the beautiful bolero music that originated in Cuba and popularized in Mexico in the early 1900s, and artists like Monsieur Periné and Natalia Lafourcade have taken it upon themselves to revive the timeless songs while giving them a modern twist.

With recent efforts by a group of bolero aficionados, artists and the Institute for the Preservation and Promotion of Bolero in Mexico to have this slow-tempo Latin music registered by UNESCO (the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) among its list of world assets, we've compiled a list of five bolero covers, including Monsieur Periné's jazzy/folk-type "Sabor a Mí" and Alejandro Fernández's mariachi version of "Contigo Aprendí."

Below you can vote for the best bolero cover or add your personal favorite.

Monsieur Periné, "Sabor a Mí" 

Luis Miguel, "El Reloj" 

Alejandro Fernández, "Contigo Aprendí" 

Mijares, "María Bonita" 

Natalia Lafourcade, "Mujer Divina"
