Found my Long Lost Love Again!

… Ricky Martin’s album “Vuelve”!



I fell in love with it almost 11 years ago, back in 1998… when my family was still in Kanpur. In those days, I rarely bought audio cassettes, because I usually liked just 1 or 2 tracks of the albums. So I instead bought blank cassettes, and then had this guy in my local market copy the songs I wanted onto those blank cassettes. That way I could listen to all my favorite songs at one go… no need to FF or Rewind!

But not “Vuelve”! Nope. This was one album I bought the complete audio cassette for… ‘coz I liked so many of its songs! Another reason was that the cassette’s inlay had the lyrics of all the songs in English… which meant that I could learn a few Spanish songs too, without knowing a single word of that language! :-P

La Copa De La Vida”, “Maria”, “La Bomba”, “Lola Lola”, "Marcia Baila", “Por Ariba” and the title song “Vuelve” – these are some of the tracks that I can be seen grooving to (again, after so many years!)… in my kitchen… while cooking lunch/dinner… much to my Dad’s dismay… for, while he has learnt to tolerate me singing along with English songs at the top of my voice, Spanish is still a bit too much for him!

Oh well… what a pity! By the way, some of the slow numbers of this album are also good for dancing… just need a partner for them though. You guys go ahead and listen to the title track from this album -- "Vuelve"...
