I was somewhere today when this song came on over the speakers, some old pop ballad that I know little about but to which I can still manage to recite most of the lyrics. I have a bunch of songs lodged into my memory that same way; I’m mostly unaware of them until I hear the familiar tune or some part of the lyrics and then it just comes flooding forward into the most active part of my brain, a slightly more functional pit of grey matter. Luckily the search engines can do most of the heavy work, figuring out that todo se derrumbo is part of the lyrics for the used-to-be-popular song by Emmanuel. “Tu eras mi perro fiel, yo era tu guia.” Oh shit, did he just call his girl a faithful dog? Yes he did! What a bastard. If you don’t understand the Spanish lyrics you might still get a kick out of the dramatic posturing. The gyrating body language for todo se derrumbo (everything fell apart) is worth the price of admission. Which, of course, is still free.

Now I just need to figure out what song is playing in the background of this clip and I’ll be set. If you have a clue, do me the favor and leave some info!
