Vikki Carr Vinyl Memories

Favorite Spanish Love Songs
"Cuando Calienta El Sol"


Vikki Carr vinyl memories returns to 1966 and highlights this wonderful American singer from Mexican origins.

It is a special page because of the cover she does on one of the most beautiful Spanish Love Songs ever, Cuando Calienta El Sol.

A favorite Spanish language love song with a simple understanding of the true translation and meaning of this song.

The English version is "Love Me with All of Your Heart" but the Spanish version, "Cuando Calienta El Sol," is much more romantic and eternal. It literally translates to the beat of your heart on a beach under the hot sun.


Vikki Carr Vinyl Memories.
A Special Performance By A Special Lady
.


When you watch Vikki in this Spanish music video from 1966 please notice as she gets closer to the audience how they seem to be spell bound by her presence singing this song.

They seem to believe every word and feel her passion, even though they may not understand the language.

Performed in Spanish, English or any Language, this song is simply beautiful. I do miss the real music artists that can express songs with heart, body and soul.

It's hard not to get moved by her beautiful voice.

The folks in that audience experienced something very special that night.

This Vikki Carr vinyl memories selection is another classic in song interpretation. Simply outstanding. There are only two women that I believe have the voice to do this song proud. One you just heard and the other is by Connie Francis.
