Mi Sexy Amor
Various Impactos Juveniles Vol 2 LP (Dicesa, 1975)
I've finally started to catch up on stuff, so time to post something. Figured I'd go for the absurd. Today you get Hierro doing "Mi Sexy Amor," or "You Sexy Thing." Originally, a hit by the band Hot Chocolate, Hierro's version comes off of a compilation of Top 40 hits redone by Spanish language artists on a cheapo sub-label of Gas Records, a LA concern. I think we are well into the internet age where foreign language versions of American hits is yawnsville. There's gotta be a little something more than a singer vocalizing "amor" instead of "love." What makes Hierro's take worthy of a listen is both the extra-mooginess of the music and his vocal performance. While not quite the acrobat as Allen, Hierro's odd, misplaced groans, squeaks, and hiccups are what make the song. Unfortunately, "Mi Sexy Amor" is the only on this album worthy of posting.
still going strong.
really stupid-but-great tune.
