Popcorn

pipocas palomitas de maizOr, as the spanish people call it, “Palomitas de maiz“. I was listening to a couple of songs of a Spanish band called “Los Pekenikes” and this was one of them. You might know it already, due to Crazy Frog (or other). Not that I find it a great song, but it is definitely a different song, so I thought it would not be a bad idea to post 😛

By the way, the title is called popcorn because it “supposedly” sounds like popcorn popping…

Here you have the original (from  Gershon Kingsley) and the Crazy Frog version

Bring all the Lovin’!

Bring a Little Lovin'Los Bravos. Do you recognize the name? Well, if you don’t, they were another (almost) one-hit band (at least outside Spain).
I dare to say that most people from the Western World (here is an example) know the song Black is Black – if you clicked the previous link you should already be expecting this song 😛 But I also dare to say that most people know only Black is Black.

Well, I somehow am not one of those persons: some years ago I decided to listen to some Los Bravos songs, and it was actually a good decision – I like some of their songs. One of them is Bring a Little Lovin’ (a cover, by the way), one of the few Los Bravos songs besides Black is Black that charted in the US (#51).

Well, but all this to tell you that I was sitting on my couch watching tv when suddenly Bring a Little Lovin’ started playing in the introduction of a movie – A Beginner’s Guide to Endings. It surprised me a lot, as I thought I was the only person knowing the song 😛 and it was of course enough to make me watch the whole movie – which, by the way, I do not recommend.

But I do recommend the song, especially if you are in a good mood or if you want to be in a good one 😉

PS – I dedicate the post to Alfonso, for singing “Los Chicos con Las Chicas” with me several times 😉
