El Angel de la Guarda - Vähän ennen kyyneleitä
A summer hit in 1966 for Danny was "Vähän ennen kyyneleitä" (Just before the tears fall), a beautiful haunting ballad. Not much is known about the original composition "El Angel de la Guarda" (Guardian Angel), but as the Spanish composer Alguero Dasca Augusto has written several movie scores, I guess it could originate from a sound track of a Spanish movie. The recording that might be the original sung version, is from Nana Mouskouri's Spanish language EP of 1965.
Updated on 11.08.2009: The older(?) version by Italian singer Mina is here.
