Got "Patricia" again. Here's two-fer from YouTube: a slowish version of "Patricia" and "El Ruletero" with Perez Prado himself.
The song today is "Patricia" and every time I hear it I think of La Dolce Vita, which naturally makes me think of French & Saunders. Here's a bit of both.
No one can touch F&S.
Manha de Carnival this morning. Fits the beautiful weather, the bright blue sky, and the quiet early morning in the city.
Like a Perez Prado record skipping. Here's "Mambo #8" to get you started.
Couldn't find the scene from "La Dolce Vita" with the version that's running through my head, but this is pretty close.
I started out with some annoying Depatie-Freleng brass stabs, but they morphed into "Spanish Flea," which stuck, thank god.
"Summer Samba," Walter Wanderley.
at around 00:00:36 of "April in Portugal" by Perez Prado. It took me about a dog-walking mile to identify the exact tune. This song's all over the place. Enjoy.
Summer Samba this morning. I think I had this exact song rambling around my head this time last year. Huh.
Woke up with the mambo version (Perez Prado), but now have a LOT of versions, thanks to the Intertubes.
Look! Julie London.
And the Ventures, which unfortunately, is turning out to be the "Perfidia" that's sticking. Curse you, Mosrite!
