Vamos!



By the time you read this, dear reader, we will (hopefully) be in mid-air en route to the sunshine of the Costa del Sol.

Here's the traditional soundtrack to our departure - Vamos a la Playa by Righeira!



"Normal" service will be resumed in a week or so...

We should go, go, go, go, go, go



On the eve of our holiday we are bubbling with excitement, and in even more of a party mood than normal!

In keeping with the "Spanish" theme of this week (even though the group is French-Caribbean and the song was written by a Belgian), here's a fantabulosa band I haven't featured for a few years - it's the Gibson Brothers and Que Sera Mi Vida.

Don't try these costumes at home, folks!



Thank Disco It's Friday!!

This time tomorrow, we'll be on the plane to the sunny Costa del Sol...

She will not cry



The irresistible lure of sunshine is getting closer...

Time, methinks, for one of our favourite Spanish divas to take el escenario!

Here's the magnificently fierce Seňorita Monica Naranjo, and No voy a llorar [I will not cry]:



And, of course, I need no excuse to feature (yet again) the best thing to come out of Spain since manchego - her classic slice of campery, Amor Y Lujo!



Y Viva Espaňa!

Y Viva Monica Naranjo!

Feather blessings



In our continuing countdown to our forthcoming Spanish holiday, it is time, methinks, for a taste of true Andalucia, birthplace of that most magical of musical styles - Flamenco!

Well, I say "true".

As true as it gets when we're talking about the toothsome and completely loco Señorita María Jiménez, loud and proud exponent of the art of copla, and one of our favourite feathery-outfit-wearers here at Dolores Delargo Towers...

She's Bienaventurados ("Blessed"):



Oh, I feel better already!

We adore María Jiménez.

Un delizioso diversione



We're taking a little diversion away from our countdown to our Spanish holiday today...

But, darlings, I think you'll forgive us - as we take a little drive with Sophia Loren (courtesy of Soft Tempo Lounge, of course):



Divine.

Forever and ever?



Not quite.



RIP Demis Roussos, unlikely object of lust for a generation of women, and eternally remembered as the "soundtrack to the long hot summer of '76"...

Flores en Lunes



Oh dear. Monday again.

Never mind, only four days to go and I am on leave, then Saturday at stupid o'clock we will be on a flight from Stansted to Malaga!

On this Tacky Music Monday we continue our countdown to Spain in the company of the very special Senorita Rocío Dúrcal! Taking a lead from our adored Sara Montiel (who sang this first), she's flogging flowers while showing her knickers (as you do) - Los Nardos, no less...



Que tengas una buena semana!
