Ron Jeremy was certainly endowed with quite a flute... but I don't recall seeing him in Anchorman {#Tongue}

Nearly 90 per cent of latin or spanish lyrics have only one theme (banal). Its the voices and the music which is interesting!

Surely you mean right DOWN there?... Agree with many here. This was probably fun on the night but it is pretty dreggy. Paco's stuff with Al di Meola and for films by Carlo Saura were majestic.

Wooow, just wrote the word majestic and Bill then puts on Majesty. {#Surprised}
 
He did it again.

Ouch.

Agreed. Those vocals (and that damned flute!) are totally obnoxious. I wondered why I'd rated this a 2, because I seldom waste a rating on something less than what I consider to be a 7 or higher.  Now I know.

Bumping this to 1.

There's nothing like an imagination! You might want to try one sometime...

Oh Please! Shut this guy up!!
This is Flamenco showboating, these same artists are capable and have done much better original, and at the same time, authentic stuff.

I think he is saying "I wanna ginko."  Maybe if he had some, he wouldn't have gotten that he'd already asked for it 17 times in the last 10 seconds.

entirely too much flute. I could do without flute in just about everything.

Nice!
Quien toca el bajo?
Who plays the bass guitar, please?

I'm hearing "Iguana-guana king-kong." Like he's singing about a really big iguana.

Which doesn't really deepen my understanding of the lyrics so much.

oh come on.
This is awful. 
it started a midiocre and ignorable, ended up obnoxious.
Easy, boys. It's a little early in the morning for this racket.
This is not so good for the ears.  It does not remind me of Flamenco music from Spain, it's a fusion of I don't know what you would call it - I give it a 4.

Stay in your trash can, Oscar. I'm entitled to my opinion, thanks. And I'll bet I listen to many, many more artists in more genres than you do, so to write that I have a narrow mind is in itself narrow-minded.

Not only that, if you review the comments below, you'll quickly learn that a good portion of the listeners agree with me.


Just terrible.
Seriously??????!
were these bananas drunk?!

Make it stop...
What up with the vocals....
I'd really prefer this as an instrumental.

This is one of the few times I agree with you, Excelsior. I also like the Gipsy Kings' (sic) instrumental work, but cannot stomach their "vocals."

Too much Gypsy Kings at dinner parties, maybe ...

About time!! :-)

I wanna hear another song....
That must be some big lizard. Love it. Jump start my morning.
Amazing. Gotta hear that again! For the person asking about the bass player, it appears to be Carles Benavent (yes, Carles with an 'e'). He's a member of Paco de Lucí­a's sextet. Some good YouTube stuff if you search around.
I wanna iguana......

AMG lists it as "Composed By: Paco de Lucía/Pepe de Lucía" (click here) Don't have my PdL Antologia CD at hand to check it right now, but I suppose you've probably heard right.
I checked the CD. Yes, it's Pepe.
Man, that started off like the live version of PG's IN YOUR EYES.

Yey! Someone else who understands how GREAT they are... of course, it helps that you are from Spain. He's coming to New York next month!! Can't wait!

I would like to comment, but the user On_the_beach will make a harsh insult to my comment. Those mean fascist Canadians!

I can just hear it now. His mother said "let you bother Pepe sing a song now". Mother doesn't always know best.
If I could only listen to the music, it would be a very good piece.

The lyrics stink, and I think the flute is out of place in a DeLucia song. But his guitar playing is absolutely astounding. How 'bout some "Friday Night in San Francisco" with Al DiMeola and John McLaughlin?
all flamenco songs are essentially written for the "dance" - and this one would be fun to watch, the vocals are just for fun!
Stick to the instruments and hire a better vocalist! Gotta give credit to the talent, though. They know their instruments! :drummer: :guitarist: :clap: :whistle:

Tolerable, but I know that if I had to hear it a second time, I'd be really annoyed.
This is fun stuff!! Great guitar... Definitely a song for summertime, margaritas, hot food, spicy food, and hot...... :cheers:
