This Johnny Rodriguez Albums page is written about a song from Johnny's album titled "Love Me with All Your Heart."
This was the first of two albums Johnny released in 1978. The other was titled "Rodriguez was Here" but never charted.
This Album reached #19 on the US Country charts and the single off the album, Cuando Calienta El Sol, reached #7.
As with this song, Johnny sometimes covered other people's songs and had hits with them, including "Something" (Beatles), "That's the way love goes" (Lefty Frizzell) and "Desperado" (Eagles).
This particular song just happens to be my favorite of all the latino songs.
Actually "Love Me with All Your Heart" is a song based on the Spanish language song "Cuando calienta el sol".
The song was originally written in the fifties by Rafael Gaston Perez but the English lyrics are sometimes credited to three different song writers and published in 1961.
The Spanish title translates as "When the sun heats up" and I have included other versions on this site for you to compare. You can decide who you think does the best performance on this beautiful song. Love to hear your thoughts on this song.
Check out the links at the bottom of this page or in the right column on this page to see other cover versions of this song.
Enjoy this video I have included and see why I have always admired Johnny's singing.
This would be the last album Johnny Rodriguez would place in the Top 20.
