    For some reason recently I've been playing this song a lot when I write. Personally, I like to pretend he's singing about the Adirondack Mountains here in New York. Although with all the lakes it can't really be called "stranger to blue water".

    Time for Some Retro Spanish Music!

    The following song is called Tómame o Déjame, created by Cantabrian Composer Juan Carlos Calderón and first performed by the successful Spanish band Mocedades, back in 1974. I am not sure if you English speakers are familiar with Mocedades songs, but they are quite a classic in the Spanish-speaking world.

    This one in particular brings strong childhood memories to me, since it was one of my father's favorites and he would sometimes sing it during family gatherings, with a glass of Scotch in his hand. The song is very sad, since it's all about a woman that feels awful because she knows that her husband is cheating on her, and at least in my experience the voice, music and lyrics transmit the sadness really well.

    Even today in 2019, plenty of people in Spanish-speaking countries keep crying with this song.

    Super Retro Spain once Again!

    This song here is the unfair Finalist of Eurovision 1973, and I say unfair because it should have won that year. Another creation of Composer Juan Carlos Calderón, performed for the first time by Mocedades and certainly yet another of my father's favorites to sing during cheerful family gatherings over thirty years ago.

    The Super Classic Eres Tú marked an entire generation back then.

    A beautiful song from 19 years ago, quite a classic already and one of my personal favorites in my language.
