Song of the Day: Malaguena by Connie Francis

Oh how rapturous and flamenco-inspired is this song, Malaguena sung by Connie Francis?

I discovered her Spanish cover songs while watching 2046, a Chinese film about a writer and his love affairs...how random is that? But that is what I love about foreign films.

Here is a short live clip version of her singing:

How in the world does she carry those high notes, I have no clue but it's so awesome. Those 50's hairstyles, fashion and women are so classic and feminine, somedays I wish life (only that part of life) was still like that, when fitted dresses, beehives and kitten heels were in style.

  1. Malagueña viene de Málaga, un lugar maravilloso de España.

  2. No sabia! un dia voy a viajar por Espana y visitar Malaga, la familia de mi Abuelita viene del parque cerca de Montserrat. Y voy alli tambien.
