Only You, Times 3

I recently won a gift certificate to an excellent Cuban restaurant, and today, I enjoyed a nice lunch with that prize (Chimichurri beef, which is really Argentinian, but the sides were most definitely Cuban). It's nice, I get to speak a little español and listen to latin pop music.

Solo Ti, or Only You, by Yaz.

There was an awesome a capella cover about a year later from the Flying Pickets:


But today, Enriqué Iglesias had a turn with a favorite, and now I can sing those harmonies en español!
