(I promise I’m going through this really old stuff as fast as I can, to get to the good stuff you’ll like. I notice that hardly anybody’s looking at these mildewed oldies, which kind of puts the lie to the claim that this is a song you need to hear…)

The chord progression from this one has become something of a latin music cliche, which provides a clue as to this song’s longevity (it has been covered as recently as 2003).

It’s a heartbreak song – the title translates as ‘Black Tears’.
