Music you might not know- but may be worth knowing.

Brazil: Gal Costa singing Força Estranha (glorious lyrics)

Spain: Maria Dolores Pradera singing Veinte Años. (Mike and I used to joke this was our song). La Pradera was born not far from where we live, here in southern Spain.

USA: Vicki Carr singing It Must Be Him (1967). Aaaahhh, the many nights I felt like this!

Maria Bethânia singing As Flores do Jardim da Nossa Casa (gloriously haunting lyrics!)

Mexico: Hermanas Padilla singing Escoria Humana (A bolero sung so softly you’d never guess the lyrics are quite mean)

Renato Russo singing an amazing version of Old Friend (Love this as being gay he doesn’t change the genders in the lyrics to seem straight)

Happy New Year!
