Marta Sánchez - Desesperada  

I recently realised just how many of these faux-reggae style pop songs I really love. Even the ones everyone else thinks are terrible, such as BWO's Rhythm Divine, I love them. Ace of Base, Blue Lagoon and now I have this fabulously jolly song to add to the lengthy list. Marta is a popular Spanish singer of around the same age as Madonna, and she even did a bit of a Madonna-esque song called Perfect Stranger which I really like (video here). In her career Marta has been a member of a popular '80s group named Olé-Olé and collaborated with Slash from Guns'n'Roses and Andrea Bocelli! This song was her first ever single in 1993 and became a classic in Spain and Latin America.
