Granada - Granada
This is the finnpick number 500!
Granada is a province in the autonomous community of Andalusia, in Southern Spain. This 'land of dreams' is praised in the song "Granada" written in 1932 by the Mexican composer Agustín Lara. The song has become a standard and covered by Frankie Laine, Mario Lanza, Frank Sinatra and numerous others. Mami recorded "Granada" in 1978 for the disco compilation album "Disco Shock". And of course they didn't cover the original "Granada", but the version by Baccara, which was released as their 3rd single in 1977. You can see them perform the song live, here.
