Philippe sings Luis Mariano.


                                     

My friend Philippe (bottom right), is a man of many talents.

We were together last night for dinner, and in-between the main course and the cheese he decided to offer all present a powerful rendition of the song below; 'Mexico' by Luis Mariano.

It was as if Mr Mariano was in the room. If you don't know the song; here it is.



Cheers Philippe. You can all now sing-along; as did we last night.!

    1. Our final lot of Summer guests have now gone, so we're feeling a little lost at the moment. Things will be better when Wills, Kellogg, and Boo Boo return from Italy.

    1. We need to fit in quite a lot during the summer as I find winter rather depressing. We're doing quite well this year.

  6. Oh that song takes me right back to when I was a kid.
    Luis Mariano was my father's absolute favourite.
    I'm getting all melancholic now. :'(

    1. It's a great song isn't it, and Philippe did a very good imitation of the original.

  7. There is nothing better than sharing wine and song with friends. Having it on a lovely summer evening makes it better.

  8. Sounds like you had a great time. Nothing like a bit of spontaneous and talented singing.

    1. I wish I'd known the words; I'd have joined him. But we did all sing the 'Mexico Mexico' bit, with the high notes. What a choir!

    1. When I was about 14 we spent our Summer holidays on the Italian Riviera at Alassio. When we arrived there were huge posters everywhere advertising Billy Cotton's Band Show. We couldn't believe our eyes!

  10. I don't think I've previously heard of, or heard, Luis Mariano, but enjoyed the introduction. Your dinner sounds delightful.

    Your mention of a cheese course reminds me of an odd business news story I heard yesterday. It seems that the States now have a cheese surplus which may, or may not, lower cheese prices over here. I do like domestic cheddar, but the other cheeses I buy are usually from another part of the world. I'll have to have a chat with the man in the grocery's cheese department and get his opinion of domestic cheese I've been ignoring...and whether their prices are going lower. Not likely.

    Best wishes.

    1. Cheese is very important over here, and the variety is huge. I still have several hundred to taste.
