22nd July 2015: Celia Cruz – No Mercedes

Language – Spanish

Translation – No mercies

This week has been pretty awful, for one reason or another.  I was walking to the bus stop this morning and this song came on my iPod.  Whether it was the relentless rhythm or the beautiful vocals I am not sure, but this song just made me want to go on a very long journey…

When I got home I thought I would have a look on YouTube for this track, and even though it is pretty low quality, I love this particular clip as it is Celia Cruz performing on a TV show.  Her joy and enthusiasm and that gorgeous sparkly dress have cheered me up no end.  Also, she looks like she is standing on a huge slab of agate, or something like that.  Good effort!
