I look out of the window for the girl I knew yesterday

Knowing my interest in dabbling in all things related to Euro-pop and cover songs, one of my Spanish readers far across the Atlantic let me know that musician Antonio Vega Tallés died early this morning in Madrid.

Tallés wrote the 1980 pop song “Chica De Ayer” (featured on this comp of Spanish pop that looks pretty fun), and was also covered by Gigolo Aunts a decade later. Listen to both below -

  • So sad to learn about the decease of Antonio Vega. It was too early for him to leave. Rest in peace and thanks Antonio for such beautiful tunes.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
